Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Hazy, golden body with several suspended floaties beneath a fluffy, white head. Sweet, fruity aroma of sweet apple cider, fresh pears, pale malt, a plethora of fruity esters, dry bakers yeast and clover honey. Sharp, active carbonation, a fairly thin body. The flavor profile is interesting, as the flavors in the mouth are fleeting and quickly gone, but the finish is long, mellow and warm. Itís quite strange. Sweet and slightly chalky up front before the warmth of the alcohol takes over. A tasty, but not all that exciting, beer. A little too sweet, for my tastes.

a sim rate: This beer has one of the best aromas of any beer! Iím slightly biased as itís one of my favourite beers, but you canít deny the sweet, honey scent. Surprisingly, the flavour is not as honey as its aroma, but it does leave a sweet aftertaste thatís delightful. The taste is sweet and floral with a bit of a beery flavour to balance the sweetness. The palate is smooth, almost like a lager, although this beer is way too nice for that label. Overall, delicious!

Dry grass and dust nose with good release of gases. Heather flower and honey on the palate with a bit of dms. very soft and clean mouthfeel very mild almost cracker like malt tones. Mild acidic and sweet finish.

Ernest (7025) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2006 Bottle, 750ml. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A virtual diacetyl bomb, unfortunately.

Bottle. Gusher. Very highly carbonated, everything churns in my glass. Little bits of yeast floating everywhere. Cloudy golden colour with nice, big, stable white head. Aroma is acidic/sour and perhaps also a bit malty. Refreshing acidic flavour reminding me of orange juice. This is good!

Poured clear gold with a medium, long lasting head. Slightly woody, malty aroma, with some spicy notes. Sweet honey start, with some dry fruity flavours there too. Yeasty aftertaste. Nice medium-full smooth body. I quite like this one.

Pale clear golden. Lightly oxidized aroma. Quite fizzy pour, but almost no head retention. Rather sweet, with a moderate hop bitterness. Rather bland and lifeless.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2004
Bottled, at the Lowlander, London.
Golden with suspended debris, that didnít settle. Medium head reducing to thin. Organic honey flavour, that is sweet with rustic sourness. Strong bitter flavour muscles quickly over the sweetness.
