3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Breckenridge. Pours anice enough deep gold with a fizzy head. The nose is quite soapy. Strong cracker pilsner malt notes and some noble hopping that is overshadowed by the soap. On taste, comes across as moderately sweet and fruity, fair level of bitterness, but not quite balanced. Not crisp and kind of a bit bigger than one would like. Meh.

Pours hazy yellow-orange with a small, off-white head.
Scent is malt, orange hops, florals...a little lemon.
Taste is slightly sweet....with bread, toffee, fruits.
Slight hint of alcohol bitter alongside the increasing hop finish.
Not bad, jst a little plain.

Bottlep poured a clear amber.bold with a smallish whitish head. Aroma of sugar, bread, fruit, caramel, vanill and earth in the finish. Nice aroma. For the style, the flavor seemed pretty spot on. Alot of earthiness, alcohol and bready malt. Not really heavy handed in any regard. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a crystal clear, golden colored body with some orange to it. Finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is grainy pale malts, some nice zesty grass, a few florals, a touch of caramel, and a lightly sweetened cereal maltiness. Flavor is sweet and malty up front before it gives way to a solid grassy, zesty lemon, floral hoppiness. Some sweet oranges in there as well as some honey and sweeter cereal malts. Finishes very dry with a solid mixture of citrus-grass and sweeter malts to give this a light-moderate bitterness and lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium, smooth body and soft, light carbonation. Overall, an above average imperial pils. Has a pretty solid malt backing and hop presence that makes this fairly tasty. Doesnít quite seem to flow perfectly together, but nonetheless, not bad.

Whole Foods Market, DC sixer ($16): For this price, I got to say that this beer was sadly not worth it. Pours a golden color with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is of grassy and floral hops. Taste is a little sweet and the alcohol is very much noticeable, especially as it warms up. Not the most pleasant beer to drink and I have certainly had better iterations of this style.

12oz bottle 10/15/10 (Binnyís)-50į in Lager glass. Pours a clear medium golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, malt, and grains. Taste of hops, citrus, and grass. This medium bodied brew is not bad but for the price($14 a six) there are much better choices. I donít understand with their Small Batch series why they canít produce a more reasonably priced brew. Afterall, there is competition with better product and prices or am I paying for the etched bottles??????

Tap Hoppy Monk, EL Paso, TX-pours bright orange with a 1/4 inch soapy and highly carbonated head. nose is mostly sweet metallic notes and not what i was expecting-some light mushy malt and spicy yeast qualities show up but not like i would have wanted them. flavors of sweet pale malt light alcohol and very lite spicy hop presence. some floral aspects show up in the mid palate and alcohol present. Im not too impressed with this beer-too sweet and not dry enough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with a medium head and some lace. The aroma is fruity and a bit sweet with some nice citrus and grassy hops. The flavor is very fruity and somewhat sweet with some grassy hop character. The beer is very bitter but something happens about mid palate where the flavor just falls off completely... sort of a fleeting flavor which is weird.
