3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially a muted grass and grain with a touch of stone fruit (underripe apricot?) which later emits more distinct grapefruit and lemon notes combined with crusty bread. Itís a clear and dull gold color with noticeable sediment suspended in the liquid. Itís topped by a white dense soap head that has moderate retention and lace. Itís texture is oily with an active fizziness and a medium body. Roasted flavors of grain and toffee are initially noted with a citrus sweetness. The finish is crisp and long and is initially a spike of bright citrus but turns waxy bitter with a hint of marmalade that leaves behind a wax and bread crust aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 2 months old. Got it accidentally in a 6 of Oarsman, glad I tried it without springing for 6. Kind of a muted version of Oberon with less wheat and less hop zing. Light to medium body. Not a standout but fine.
