3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Seemed a lot stronger than 4.9. Excellent in the glass - sparkling golden with pure even white foam. Lots of mineral though lightly tangy, dust and earth, some metal and mud. Well done -- an intersting complex of subdued lighter malt flavors and old herbal hops. Thanks pivo and yogi!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden colour body with a thin white head. Very pleasant aroma of citrus and green apples, German hops and a bit of metal. Light-bodied; Great balance, strong hop showing for the style and a subtle sweet taste. Aftertaste mild and clean. A better beer than I was expecting-try it if you can find it! I bought this 330 mL swing-top bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 14-November-2003.

Starts out malt sweet big time and immediately settles into a really wonderful noble hoppiness - flowery, also some iron and earth, and as someone once said, pencil shavings. I like this. Body is nice and crisp.

Nice malty sweet, didn't get much bitterness out of this one and the sweetness was kind of strange.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color,small white head that lasted for a short time.Malty aroma,with what i would assume is a figs aroma and mildly hopped,as well as being nicely sweet smelling.Malty taste with a slight herb like taste hops and the feel is fairly light and easy drinking with an after taste that is slightly herb like i guess and hoppy.It's kind of a thin brew in feel but is fairly decent in taste,and unique.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange color with a small head. Decent lagerish aroma. Body is full and malty. Slightly sweet, with some evidence of hops in the finish. Uninspiring, yet unoffensive.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lightly hazed golden yellow liquid with a small but stable waxy white head. Light honey and dry malt aroma. Nutty (hickory) with heavy herbal overtones. A bitter almond aftertaste. You really are left with a husky bitterness.
