crossovert (7200) - Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a soft white head. Smell is diacetyl, herbs, pine, grass. Flavor is interesting. It starts with a slight smokey scotch flavor, it then melds into a mineraly, dry, piney flavor. A medium bitterness and subtle smokiness lingers on the palate. Interesting flavor combo, the bitterness makes htis beer worth it. Also its organic.

Ernest (6181) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of Meyer lemon, light note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Basically a richer version of the Golden, but while the aroma is attractive it’s pretty quiet. Wonderful balance in the mouth, neither too sweet or too dry for its size, very clean and flavorful. As enjoyable as the Golden, but the Native Storm is the clear winner among the three.
