3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear bright golden with a thin sticky white head. Somewhat dank aroma with some earthy pine resins and something like earthy lavender or Rosemary. Smooth but bitter flavor with some big pine resins and Rosemary and grapefruit rind. Quite bitter but tempered with a biscuity pale ale maltiness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I love rosemary-wanted to give the nose and taste 9’s for that but didn’t b/c it was pretty one dimensional even though that one dimension is awesome. Smells just like rosemary with a little resiny and floral hops. Clear gold. Medium sweet malt, lots of rosemary, and then a piney hop finish. Novelty, but delicious.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Avery Anniversary Party 8/7/11. Color is a hazy pale gold with carbonation is mellow giving a thin tight head. It has a lighter medium body with a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in heavy with pine, like a fresh cut tree then grapefruit zest and pepper with a light soap taste coming in. After taste is almost dry with a harsh rosemary thing coming lingering. Overall its just not good, the rosemary overpowers in the end leaving you with some thing that would be better to marinate a lamb chop.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours hazy gold with a large, creamy white head, medium-long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is rosemary, cereal and meal malt, faint woody hops. Flavor is spicy rosemary and pepper, moderate malt, lightly bitter. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth. The addition of rosemary makes this a love or hate kind of beer, and I thought it was really nice.
