3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Light malty nose, yeast, bread, and gentle peach. Medium straw color, a bit hazy, and a thin flimy head. Fruity initial, with grass, little cookies, and a yeast bite. Thin-medium body, with lots of carbonation tingle. Okay. Not as good as I remember it from years ago. Not the top blonde at the bar.

"a little spicy and earthy in the aroma. not a lot of follow through on the taste. nothing offensive at all, but a simple session beer at best. probably won’t try this one again, either. just the stout and vintage from Coopers have been "good"."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased from Bacchus Wines, Olney. Golden brown and cloudy, with a quickly dissipating white head. Toast, malt, tropical fruit, spruce and a bit of bubblegum in the aroma. Bittersweet taste with a touch of savoury woodiness. Caramel, honey and bitter herb flavours. Short bitter finish. Light mouthfeel but lots of lively carbonation on the palette. You know, this isn’t bad.

Dry and malty, but only a bit. Subtle hints of orange and hops make for a relatively good effort.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent hazy gold pour w/ a thin white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is nearly nonexistent - a little malty & a lot boring! The taste is too clean & finishes a touch metallic. The body & mouthfeel is good for the style but there isn’t much else to praise here. Not very good!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Troebel geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en kruidig, caramel, drop, echter iets waterig. Blijft redelijk lang hangen. Goed bier.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark yellow colour with thin white head. Not really tasty, some citrous and dry ending. Easy to drink but not really interesting.
