A very drinkable golden ale. Fruity aroma and flavour, and with a slightly bitter hoppy finish. Nice in the summertime, but quickly forgotten though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 Lovelly cloudy apperance, produced by the yeast multiplication in the bottle conditioning. Very robust fruity flavours. Just so well balanced. Excellent session beer. A bottle o around the corner has had it on special now for at least 3 months @ $40 AUS a case. Have lost count of the anount bought, but getting close to a palate. Craps all over the other domestic regular beers. Well worth the extra money. If you have problems convincing people to go the extra money, just argue that its 5.6% abv, and therefore 0.6-0.8% more alcholic than VB, New, Old and all those other uninspiring beers. So when it boils down to it you aren’t paying that much more because in effect you get a few extra beers worth of alcholic satisfaqction. I love this beer, just so accomodating.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy beer with a lot of head. Lots of stuff floating around in the glass. Taste is like a summer beer with its fruit hints. Bland on the first taste but slightly better as it goes down.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy body and highly carbonated; subtle nose is slightly fruity, floral, and citric; watery palate with flavors that include sweet caramel, yeast, and maybe honey; dry finish; not too bad.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden body with alot of yeasty floaties and a one finger foamy white head. Nose is not pleasant. It smells like rotten fruit. The flavor is mild. First flavors to come out are yeast, carbonation, light grapefruit, and bread dough. The finish is very clean with almost no linger. I don’t know. This isn’t bad, but I wouldn’t seek it out again.

Cloudy orange brown color, short but lasting creamy white head, high carbonation. Extreme amount of yeast, which accumulate at the bottom of the glass. Aroma of yeast (surprise surprise), caramel malts and english hops. Taste is malty and sour yeasty, some cookie. Thick palate.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jak’s Tap (Chicago). Smelled like cantaloupe or honeydew with some hops. Pale yellow. Tastes like it smelled, but a little on the weak (refreshing?) side. Not much of a finish, was kind of watery and not as sparkling as I expected. Not bad.
