From the bottle - pours out yellow in color (surprisingly). Refreshing, easy to drink, infact I found myself gulping it down. Hop flavors, light on the carbonation. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hop aroma with hints of dark fruit. Not overly perfumy or floral. Clear body; no visible carbonation. White head. Excellent lace. What hop is this? Not overly piney or resiny or hoppy. Smooth dark fruit. Too softly carbonated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 Bottle courtesy of zug4abby. Thanks again! Pours gold with nice white head and spotty lacing. Sweet citrusy hop aroma, with notes of lemon and pine. Crisp and sweet malt flavor offset by piney hop bitterness. Refreshing, dry bitter finish, in which I pick up some lemon and pilsnereque flavors. Another well done beer from Alesmith. This would be a great summer APA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden with a thick white head. Good retention. Aroma was quite floral for a Pale Ale, reminded me more of lager then a Pale Ale. Flavor was hoppy with citrus, graitfruit, lemon and caramel. Overall it really impresses me as a Lager, but it is still really good.

65 cl bottle. Golden colour with a great head. Very light aroma of sweetness from the malt and some caramel too. Very nice hoppy flavour with a lot of fruitness and some maltness. Ends up bitter and dry, really nice endeed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Pours a golden hued yellow, with nice fine carbonation and a dispersed frothy off-white head. Aroma of chipotle, light fresh grain bin, and very subtle and gentle grassy hops. Wheaty sweet flavor, without a lot of body and depth, but an extreme level of drinkability. Thereís a strong ring of playdough and some peculiar spicy light florals that I canít put my finger on, but donít seem to be coming from the hops. I could be wrong. Itís almost a sweet fruity grain character showing through. Smacks of light grass and some green teas, with a tooth of bran. Palate is a grainy dry glow. Thanks Andy!

Bottle at Enniskillenís tasting
Pours a nice gold with a healthy head. Aroma is lemon grass and a faint rice. Flavor is honey, rice, and weak hops. Watery Palate. Despite the sum of its parts, itís an enjoyable beer. Nice balance of ingredients and alcohol.
