2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with ppoitras (thanks!). Poured a daker and slightly hazy amber color with a large sized, frothy off white head. Aromas of lemons, toasted malts, light caramel, and all around fruity. Tastes of citrus, toasted malts and some caramel. Has a lively and fizzy body that I really didn’t care too much for.

Sample at the Ping Pong, Foosball, and Great Beer tasting on 03/03/2012. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-amber color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet and malty with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Draft at Spring Brewtopia 2005... Sparkling clear, deep gold lager with a creamy, off-white head. Decent retention and excellent, interesting lacework. Foral nose with just a hint of caramel. Perfectly balanced flavor... nice, sweet maltiness countered by the perfect amount of hops. A little citrus fruit and toffee as well. Light-bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Barcade. Amber beer with a very creamy white head. Lovely aroma with lots of flowery/spicy noble hop aroma over a soft earthy malt base. A hint of wheaty spice as well. Flavours are similar, with nothing earthshattering, but an very tasty balance of spicy hops and a dry finish that make you craze another mouthful. The definition of quaffability. Great session beer.

On tap at The Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME:
Interesting caramel maltiness coalesces with the peachy fruitiness...The hops’ soapiness detract from their citrusy fruitiness...Well-rounded, with a low but prickly carbonation, a simple, run-of-the-mill amber ale...
