2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color with small compact head. It has some smell of stale water. Dry and weak mouthfeel; some malt flavor with accents of hay and corn; strong bitterness, maybe a bit too strong.
Tastes like a bitter Lager, not bad, but also not exciting.

Very pale. No head. Light clean pale malt - I like the choice of pilsner here. Has a very woody, austere sort of bitterness, finishing quick.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy translucent gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Aroma is fruity with a little spiciness. Med body or better. It is very freshly hoppy, but it’s mostly earthy/pungent. But the nose continues fruity. Malt: yes. But not caramel. Light malt. This is very unusual, and extremely flavorful - but not in a hop burn way. Close, but not quite. Delicious.

Bottle. Blonde. Grassy citric leavy aroma. Thinnish, but a firm grassy citric hopbitter flavor. leavy, slightly herbal. The herbalness in lingering on in the aftertaste. Nice one.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy pale yellow golden color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is lightly malts, some hops but also a bit sweaty. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, hayish, only a hint of bitter. Average body and carbonation. Drinkable but not very good imo.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours yellow. More hoppy flavour than the India Red Ale, but with much to be desired in complexity. Drinkable.
