3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. First reviewed 2/12/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Out of the bottle Grey Lady pours a pale golden yellow color, hazy all the way through, with a rocky white cap that bubbles and fizzles away, disappearing after a few moments.
The smell is pleasant and refined. Sweet malts, orange rind, coriander, and a bit of other spices.
Sweet Belgian malt, with a touch of honey open the flavor. Cloves, coriander, and bit of soft orange rind add some depth. Spicy and lightly grassy on the back end without being overpowering.
Slightly crisp on the tongue, while the sweetness prevents it from drying out. Light to medium bodied.
This is simple and refreshing. This is the kind of beer that I like at a BBQ, to enjoy it and not need to think about it.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
12oz Bottle. Aroma of salty female deodorant. Flavors are not much of an improvement. Messy soapy, detergent flavored beer with little resemblance to beer. Salty, sour, and thin, with some certain harshness. Offensive and undrinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with a small white head. Smells like malt, spice, and citrus. Taste like lemons, spice, and some wheat. The lemon flavor is very strong, and taste mostly sour. I am pretty sure that lemon juice was used in the process of making this. I like a good sour ale, but this is too unbalanced to be one. There is some sweetness from the wheat, but it is over powered by the sourness. I could not finish a whole bottle of this, I poured it down the drain as it left the fresh scent of lemons, just like Pine Sol.

Murky pale yellow with fair, creamy, white head / Delicate, soapy, and herbal nose / Light body, some sweetness, watery, with thin finish / Flavors of soap, herbs, and cream / So of like drinking shampoo. Peculiar and mediocre.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the airport in Boston, MA. Light golden color with orange highlights. The nose is sweet, some banana with a spicy ginger finish. The taste is moderately light and sweet, with a slightly bready finish. The palate’s watery, a slightly wet finish. Overall, OK, one of the better beers I’ve had at an airport :)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. My second Cisco beer tonight that was overly fizzy. Unlike the Bailey’s, this one is champagne-like in its fizziness, effervescent to a fault. Super light and barley yellow, this drinks like a fruit spritzer more than a beer, even a wit. Super sweet and puckeringly sweet, this is bordering into the Berliner weisse range. (#4403, 12/11/2011)

22 ounce thanks to Brandon. Orange body. Zest. Some peach. Big coriander. Ok. Kind of odd finish.
