UPDATED: MAR 25, 2007 Glancing through the foam your tongue perceives citrusy, herbal hops lying in the baccate earth...Further on come visions of caramel malt accompanying wooden hop dryness...A balanced and thirst-quenching alt...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flat amber, creamy head. True alt aroma if I might say. Bitter. Interesting malt taste, once again true to real alt. Alcohol was a bit overexposed. Need to work on balancing few little details...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper body, smallish white head. Light aroma consisting mostly of mildly earthy malt, dry grass and grainy notes, maybe a bit slight chunk hay as well. More or less crisp in mouth, refreshing and quaffable, but not so characterful altogether, mostly caramelic sweetness and somewhat sulfuric hoppiness.
