3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours an almost clear, golden body under a finger-thick, creamy, off-white head. Piney, citrusy nose with a malty sweetness in the back. The flavor has piney, resiny hops giving a fine bitterness, and malty sweetness to balance it. Dryish, full body. The finish is very much like the initial flavor, with a pleasant bitterness. A nice beer, but it sort of lacks something. That might of course be freshness, as it’s not as quenching as expected. A nice one though. (090411)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Light amber, always has a decent head. Foresty cascade aroma, lightly toasted biscuits, vague lemon, salmonberries. Moderate bitterness - I wonder how I would have described that in '75, maybe ULTRA HOP JUICE SO BITTER I'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO TASTE AGAIN - how the times have changed. Hoppy, fruity, with a light yeast note and light background malts. Though its hop content is not the shocker it once must have been, it succeeds today on its balance, which remains wonderful. Simple and classy, a deserving standard-bearer for the micro movement.
