Bottle. Pours a very hazy orange-tinted amber with a moderate dense yellow-tinted head. Very pleasing aromas of fresh lychees and subtle spice. Lovely balance of sweet alt and fruity aromatic hops (lychee, melon) with a finish that s quite quenching and surprisingly low on bitterness. A real treat!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours amber, with medium sediment, and an off white head. Weird sweet malts, just the faintest hint of dicetyl, and light herbal hops. I’d assume this was old, but the bottle says it’s 4 months old, so... it’s really not that old. Not that good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2007 Bottle (May 07 bottling). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (wort, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin), moderately yeasty (dough, sweat). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very bland and boring. Slightly worty aroma and lots of raw yeast stink, as with many of Bristol’s year-round brews.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at brewery. Clear light amber with a thin spotty head. Smells almost of a meaty herbal spaghetti sauce...not sure what to make of that. Herbal hops, a touch of rosemary, earthy toffee malts, and just a tone of sausage or something on the nose. Flavor is grainy and herbal with a nice balancing bitterness, finishing off-dry with an aftertaste of floral hop resin. Not shabby, just a little confusing.
