3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Dark sugary aroma with heavy hopping and yeast. Copper, light tan head. Hops and yeast sort of blend in mid palate. Long aftertaste, with a series of prickly hop touches on the tongue. Medium-heavy body. Very pleasant -- though maybe just a bit hop heavy for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
360ml brown bottle. Orangey pour, hazy. Head reduces itself to a thin creamy layer, slight off white colour. Thin splotches of random lacing. Light fruity nose, some malt sweetness, caramel. In the mouth the beer has light citrus, caramel and toasty malts. Finish has light hopping, dryish malt, grains, toasty notes, trace of grapefruit, some grassy sharpness. Average carbonation and light bodied. Usually a big fan of Baird’s beers but this one is average.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with citrus and pine and mild caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a nice citrus and pine hop bitterness to round things out. Light to Medium body with good carbonation leaving a pleasant tingle on the palate. An above average amber ale that was a pleasure to have sampled.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lager glass. Nice amber/orange color. Tinted off-white head appears to be in it for the long haul. Orange peel on the nose and maybe a little apple pie. Perfect amount of hops for this. Continued citrus peel and some spice, but overall a pretty good beer.
