3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks very much like an English bitter, the aroma is gentle hops with a hint of malts, and the flavour is quite strongly dry with a sweetish finish. Overall OK.

You should give it more than one try to really appreciate it. Pale/orange colour, no head to write of, slightly rotten malty and herbal hoppy aroma, mouthful of sweet malts, bitter hops and alcohol. Probably, the best organic ale I’ve ever tasted.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
An orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet malty - quite boring. The flavor is sweet malty with hints of honey and a light hoppy end. All in all a boring beer.

Golden coloured. Strange aroma and taste notes. Actually quite bad. Rather thin and watery. Very boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2004 (on bottle)I should have known from the hops in the bottlemold, the hops on the label; this would be a hoppy experience. So for all the underfermenting-freaks, here´s a good intro to the real McCoy; ales.
Golden color, yes, but the promise of a malty tone, dosen´t hit me before smellig the bottle the day after the drink. And it´s organic too and as the label tells: "suitable for vegetarians".

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Golden honey colour with a fine, slow rising head, servicing a thin lacy top. Sweet pale malt aroma, which actually translates to a deep, fuller flavour on as a result of the alcohol. Has a bitter sing that begins in the middle of the palate and trails outwards and down. Medium to long length on the palate.

Usually organic beers have that little extra freshness but this one did not.If I hadn't read the bottle i would put it in the 4 to 4.5 per cent range not 6. Not a lot of flavour although a nice golden appearance.Not one to convert you to the organic beer cause.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. An inoffensive brew. A very quiet gold colour - clean and simple. A light fruit nose accented with some acidity and a good touch of sourness. When the fizz dies down the mouthfeel is acceptable - thin to medium bodied, quite refreshing - but nothing really noticable. Soft jam flavours, nothing intrusive. Soft vanishing finish leaving a slight bitter tang. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Not bad at all, I found this ale a bit thick and heavy though it doesnt taste like very complex.
I prefer this over Rapunzel organic though.
Little head, dark golden colour, malty and well balanced aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Gold colour, moderate thin white head, moderate condition. Good sweet malty nose, almost like a Bavarian Helles except for a delicate hop note. Full bodied and malty with a nutty edge and some hop flavour but a slightly offputting dry burnt taste develops that lingers into the aftertaste. Still, it has a lot more taste than most organic beers Ive tried.
