Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

Skarecrow (221) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2016
12 Fl. Oz bottle from The Merchant in Taupo. Huge white head when poured. Light gold color with slight haze - almost cider like with maybe a touch of pink. Fruity spicy aroma with woody oak note in the background. Sourish astringent taste and not much else. I suspect this was an old bottle that had seen better days as it was not nice at all. Half a glass was all I could manage - the kitchen sink got the rest.

Leighton (18517) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle at Charlie’s in Encinitas. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Pretty basic stuff. Light and airy, with doughy wheat, faint plastic, grass, lemon peel. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with light tangerine, doughy wheat and mild bitter hay. Fine.

Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of ginger and honey, caramel malts and wheat. Taste is lots of ginger, tart, caramel malts, sour berries. Carbonation is really high. Too high.

jamaty (1867) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Miel en la receta. Bonito color ambar mínimamente turbio. Espuma muy abundante. Queda un cuarto de centimetro hasta el final. Aroma malteado con notas terrosas y humedas. Gas excesivo. El sabor es muy ácido que tapa cualquier otra cosa. Muy desagradable en boca. La he probado dos veces. La primera me gustó. Esta nada. ¿estará mal?
