3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle, kindly shared by KnutAlbert. Massive white head. Hazy pilsner golden body. Tight lemony and peachy aroma. Notes of dry doughy malts.
Taste is fruit driven. More lemon and peaches, with both sourish and acidic tones. Subdued, dry and light grainy malt body. Very slick in the mouth. Not very full, but well-bodied for a 3.5 percenter. Finishes crisp, fresh and fruity.
A very nice one, super drinkability.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, sampled 2010-01-19) Hazy golden with a largeish, partly lasting, bubbly head. Very pleasant, strongly aromatic nose with citrus and exotic fruit. Lots of citrus and fruit in the flavor, with a touch of stuffy ashiness. Quite light body, not watery, slightly fizzy CO2. Wonderful initial aroma, but flavor disappoints, and stuffiness irritates.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slow gusher. Huge offwhite head doesnít last. Hazy yellow body with carbonation. Citric peaches and catnip aroma. Dry peaches and melon taste with mealy notes. Mid-to-thin body. FIzzy mouthfeel. Dryish ashy peaches aftertaste. Decent, but too thin and ashy. (0.25l bottle shared by KnutAlbert. Bottle #2317 from batch bottled 2009-09-04.)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of fonefan poured into a tulip.
Pours a bright cloudy golden yellow with an enormous pillowy white head that shows exceptional retention and leaves little clumps of lacing on the sides.
The aroma is quite hoppy for the style with some lemony citrus and a bit of herbal grassy character as well, probably from the simcoe. There is also a hefty toasted bread aroma which balances the hops.
The taste is bitter up front, almost tart in fact, with the lemon zest puckering the lips a little. There is a toasted bread and spicy yeast in there and itís almost like a breaded lemon spritzer, which is something I may have just made up.
The mouthfeel is light and effervescent with a dry and bitter/spicy finish.
I really enjoyed this beer as itís got a predominant hop character that doesnít overwhelm the dry toasty character. Lots of flavor for such a low ABV beer. Extraordinarily refreshing and an excellent summer afternoon brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy (even without the sediments) yellow to light-orange colored with medium-sized white head; hoppy aroma is quite fruity, though not so much of peaches, but something little less sweet, some bothering earthy/skunky tones in the side; flavor is quite bitter and somewhat fruity, but not as fresh as I had hoped, with dry hoppy finish; mouthfeel is a bit sharp due to high carbonation, body is light; aftertaste is actually dry in a way that you feel like having your mouth full of sand - in that sense it topped my expectations of delivering what promised.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bevuta in bottiglia, di colore oro pallido, al naso Ť pesca e frutti tropicali in particolare mango. Al palato Ť fruttata con note di agrumi, frutti tropicali pesca, luppolata e secca. Il finale Ť leggermente luppolato e non molto persistente. Leggera, fresca, bevibile e poco alcolica (solo 3,5 gradi). Niente male!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrusy peach hops aroma with a little bready caramel malt. Hazy (due to my poor pour) light orange under a lasting, white blanket that laces the glass. Dry, with a healthy dose of citrusy and fruity hops that is not overboard and doesnít quite drown out the biscuity malt. Light body, moderate carbonation, balanced toward hops flavour, but not too off-balance.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Hazy pale golden, rich head. Perfumy nose. Dry and aromatic, light bodied with crisp mouthfeel. Hoppy and tangy, very quenchable light bitter with balanced bitterness.
