3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 The only good thing i have to say about this beer is the aroma, it was very promising, flowery, yeasty and bubblegum, the flavor was dissapointing, it was really weak, a little bit citusy and fruity and very dry with some acidicy, strong carbonation, not very enjoyable beer but not a bad one niether.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz bottle sampled from an extra-special-cold glass stein at the Old Chicago in Rockford, IL. Massively yeast-flecked thick opaque amber, big dying head...I’ve never seen a beer with more floaties, they are suspended as if in heavily salty water, fascinating...nose is yeasty and cobwebby-dusty dry...body light and dry edging to real bitterness at the finish, with hints of dried rosemary and pepper following on a short, sweet lemony midsection that helps keep it from being too dusty to drink. In a strange way this reminded me of Orval, though not nearly as funky or original. Quite interesting and tasty overall.

Bootle Pours a cloudy light brown/tan. Minimal head and thin but smooth lacing. Aroma is very tart lemony. Flavors are malty and musty. Hops are a bit citrusy. Yeat flavor is up front as well. ABV is undetectable. Easy to drink but bland and a bit A good summer beer I expect.

This beer is one of the most drinkable beers in AUS. Stronger in alcohol than most AUS beers, sometimes has stuff floating in it but.... weird

A bit bland, was expecting more from this beer, nice yeasty feel, but flavor was average, an ok beer, but not great.

Minor barnyard and citrus on the nose. Champagne sweetness and citrusy undertones in the mouth. Good effervesence and light gold color.

This brew pours with an orange-gold body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma and flavor are both slightly sweet yet slightly sour with lemon grass notes, a little bitterness and a touch of yeast. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some mild herbal hops in the nose with plenty of fruity esters. Hazy yellow-blonde with generous white head that recedes to lasting cover. Mild citrus hop flavour and some yeasty fruitiness with a light balancing bitterness. Strong carbonation and engaging mouthfeel. Enjoyable. Bottle.
