3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Partly clouded amber color. Surprising aroma of honey and rosemary. Intriguing and surprising flavors of honey, rosemary and buckwheat. Strange and very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium clear amber, little head. Strong herbal nose, rosemary for sure and perhaps a touch of onion, just enough to zing and not disgust. Pretty sweet, but with and herbal acerbity that balances nicely, and also just a touch of salt. Very easy to drink and light, yet distinctive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 Re-rate: Strong rosemary aroma. Hazy golden-copper coloured body is topped by shy white head that covers but recedes to ring. Rosemary is very apparent in the sweet malty flavour also with some fair fruity esters (pineapple, orange). Smooth texture with gentle carbonation and medium body. On tap at the brewpub (6-2-6-4-12=3.0).
Original rating: Delicate spicy aroma. Clear, dark brown colour with cream coloured dense head. Sweet honey and malt with spicing of rosemary. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Lingering light spicy bitterness. On tap (7-4-6-5-13=3.5).

First millenium legions of hairy hominids brewed this from the elements found around their primal lake...The upper palate is pounded yet pleasured by rosemary leaves as honey sweet malt supports and buckwheat is third violin of a quaffable body...An efficient, gruit-like, medicinal treatment of fresh herbs to cure lassitude...
