3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fancy corked 750ml bottled two months ago (March 7, 2003). i found the label to be overly lacking. it was ok, but i expected more from the label. The beer was a nice golden color with an aroma that reminded me faintly of hard cider. sorta. the taste reminded me of the label...ok, but i found it to be lacking and let me down a little. not bad at all, but then again nothing really wowed me either.

750ML bottle dated 03/07/03 drank on 05/05/03: Clear light yellow color with a small white head. Straw/grassy aroma with a touch of lemon and a bit of yeast. Fizzy mouthfeel, ends sweet and without much character.

Very old bottle, 03/97. Barnyard aroma. Very sweet malty flavor. Light. Flavor as a little old lawn clipping flavor. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nothing to write home about but still better than the mass produced beers. I would most likely not get this one again not because it was bad just that there are others I prefer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden body, big bubbles rising, and a big white head. Aroma is spicy, slightly sweet, and grassy hoppy. Taste is quite sweet, a bit spicy, and finishes with a mild grassy bitterness, along with a bit of astringency. Body is light, fairly carbonated. Not bad, but it’s missing the complexity I’d like in a biere de garde.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like a lager, but tastes nothing like one. Fruity/sweet, with some yeastiness and a little hop well in the back. Some alcohol on the finish. Not bad at all.
