3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Handsome, hazy, deep golden ale with a large, frothy, white head... diminishes to a lasting creamy head with cool cirrus lacework. The soapy, fruity aroma is interesting with a hint of mint and light perfume. Moderately bitter flavor that is, otherwise, fairly nondescript. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, dry finish.

Poisonous orange colour accompanied by small hissing head. The beer is very herbal and spicy with deep malty background. A bucket of hop flowers in the end.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Small white head and fine-large sized bubbles that completely dissipated. Very little carbonation, somewhat hazy, and a pale yellow hue. Malty, hoppy and somewhat of a skunky aroma. Acidic, sour, tart, malt and hop flavor. Tingly palate and light bodied with very sparse lacing. I was not impressed with this beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from lot 2 marked best before January of 2006 poured a small head of large white mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body softly carbonated weak yellow color with a slight haze. The aroma is a mild malt hop onw with a hint of apples. The mouth feel is somewhat thick mildly tingly slightly acidic and finishes with a mild hopiness. The flavor contains notes of apples dough malt mild hops.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy/cloudy golden color with a stable off white head od bubbles. Full bloom floral aromas mingled with fresh hops (light pine and citrus). Intriguing nose, yet rather simple. Light sweet malt start that fades to mild citrus and pepper. Hints of goldenrod and wild weed flowers. Seems a bit watery towards the end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Slightly soapy, tinny aroma to this dark golden beer. The taste is clean and malty and drinkable but has no exciting character to it. Average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite good, really. Amber with small white head. Pleasant aroma of malt, hops, some fruit. Good feel in the mouth. Medium body. Nice flavor of sweetness and a touch of tart. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice enough, seems to be searching for a style. Straw-gold in color with a solid creamy head. Hoppy and fruit notes. Nice crisp hop bight. A fine ale for a hot day.
