3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 Taster at the Balmoral Brewhaha. A sharp, clean northwestern hop hit made me peg this as a Pale Ale. But no, I see it down as a Blond. Very close, either way. The malt base is a little light, and plays well of the featured hops. Regrettably, our taster cups were solid black, so I couldnít tell you much about how it looks, except for a nice skimmer of foam on top. But itís very nice on a warm, humid summerís evening and lets me prepare for the more off-kilter beers at this event.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent beer but not exciting. Pale malt and rice aroma. Faint. Dirty golden color with a thin white head. Light palate with strong carbonation. Pale and grassy malt flavors with a slight hops bitterness on the finish. Decent summer beer but not a first choice.

Bottled as Restoration Ale. Itís ok but pale aleís donít travel too well from America to Australia. Probably better fresh.

12oz bottle, definitely light, decent summer brew, lacks some flavor to it, not sure, but again, overall decent.

A very gentle aroma with citrusy and some piney notes dominate. Rather light, a wee bit watery, and softly carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 5.2% abv. Promising hoppy aroma. Taste with citrus notes but a watery mouthfeel so it ends up rather dissapointing. A shame.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, floral and grassy hops, a splash of citrus. There wasnít much going on with this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a sudsy white head and moderate carbonation. Strong aromas of tropical fruit (pineapple, lime, guava), sweet pastry and a floral note. Taste is sweet biscuit at the front before a zesty bitterness comes through. Short finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste. A bit unbalanced but pretty refreshing all the same.
