3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a lager, but reminds me more of an ale or even a mild IPA. Pours to a golden copper color, with thin, diminishing cream-colored head, and okay lacing. Aroma is citrus fruit, and floral hoppiness. Taste follows along the citurs fruit, predominantly grapefruit, and some floral, rose petal. Finish is somewhat dry, slightly bitter, but long lasting. I’m impressed with this beer.

Pours a goldish-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, toasted and sweet malts, and caramel. Flavor is very much the same with a sweet malt and caramel finish that lingers. The flavor of the floral hops and the malts blend together very nicely. Not my style of beer but I do enjoy this brew.

12 oz bottle. Deep golden/amber beer with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is very toasty and sweet. Fresh malt with a lovely floral hop aroma. Slightly perfumey. Some sweet caramel. Very fresh and toasty malts. Floral hops with a soft but insistent bitterness. I’m surprised I haven’t had this before, but I’m more surprised by how good it is.

Bottle, 355ml. A copper-coloured pour with a small lasting head. Strong aromas of hops and citrus. Tastes very alcoholic, with hops, citrus and caramel. A nice hoppy, bitter, somewhat fruity finish with some acidity. Average carbonation. Pretty good.

tap. outside of madison square garden where the Celtics put a whooping on the highest paid, and worst team in the NBA. This beer represents the people of New York. I say it represents them well. It is revolting in just about every way. I’ll take a coors please. Do you guys remember when the Sox came back from 3 down?

Light amber. Great grassy fresh hoppy aroma -- from the dry hopping I suppose. Not much besides the hops though.

I had this one at Shea Stadium, in a plastic cup. It had a big white head over a dark gold brew. The head up and left sip lines on the plastic cup. Well balanced hops and malt, neither too strong but had a full-bodied effect. A pleasant beer. It went down easy.

Pours dark amber with little head. Aroma is very hoppy, though yet it has a spicy quality to it. This expands to the taste, where spices and a flowery feeling add to the hoppy bitterness...

A nice clean light brown beer. A rich full bitter flavor. Very flowery aroma and a little bit of that passed on to the taste.
