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.

Bottle 5.2% abv. Promising hoppy aroma. Taste with citrus notes but a watery mouthfeel so it ends up rather dissapointing. A shame.

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.
