3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured pale golden with a decent white head that diminished quickly. Almost no aroma, although only hints of any scent were apple type flavors, but, so faint to be barely perceptible. Flavor was mild with a bit of cidery spice, but not too overpowering. Quite mild, but, very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale old gold to orange with a 3 finger, chunky, eggshell head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma of swwet malt, toast, caramel, cereal, floral and spicy hops and light tree and dark fruit. Flavor of cereal, toast, sweet malt,hay, apple skins, light caramel and mineral notes, floral hops and just a hint of spicy and herbal hops. Light to medium body with a creamy entry quickly leading to a moderate strength, but sharp carbonation and slightly dry, crisp finish. Good stuff, surprisingly refreshing and light, but with a great malt backbone and slighly warming booziness. Has a very, "Pilsener on Ale yeast" feel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium golden orange, fair amount of head that disappears quickly. Aroma is subtle, faint barnyard/farmhouse vibe, maybe a bit of straw. Thinner body is lively and bright. Finish is slightly estery. Very drinkable, but not remarkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle-conditioned 750ml, BB 24/07/2013. early pour is clear apple juice color with a large-bubbled white head of average retention. early on it has a strangely faint nose, as in, it almost smells like nothing whatsoever. there’s a small bit of red apple esters and mild calcium, copper and soap notes with cork and tomato / vegetable / ketchup scents coming into play as it opens. medium body, somewhat chewy and oily. apple juice flavor with very small accents of ginger root, detergent and hairspray. juicy, sweet, effervescent presence in the mouth. carbonation is a bit too rough, and the malt is a combination of gooey apple cider texture with rough, grain-heavy edges.
