A hazy golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, pleasant and sweet, with juniper berries, ginger and pineapples.

Bottle tasted Nov. 27, with GRM and friends, bought at Kappy’s Malden, Oct. 2009.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small, fizzy, white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, bread, straw), light hop (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of chai, juniper, honey, plum, and pineapple. Full bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is an earthy, spicy, fruity marriage of ginger root, juniper berries, black pepper, lemongrass, cardamom and fuzzy fruits. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Spicy, fruity essences abound in the sugary flavor. Not as herbal as the aroma. Pleasantly sweet finish.
