3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich, sweet malts blend nicely with spicy, grassy, pine-like citrus hops in the nose. Clear, deep golden coloured body is topped by an enthusiastic white head that recedes slowly and laces well. Light cereal malt character with spicy hop flavours and medium bitterness. Somewhat sweet and floral in the finish. Medium light body with crisp carbonation. Somewhat slick in texture.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2011 [3656-20110323] Bottle. Fragrant lychee cardboard aroma has a lemony raspberry hint. Hazy, bright orange body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity raspberry-like tartness continues in the flavour with a muted citrus hint without the acidity. Medium body is fairly bubbly. Interesting, odd at first though. (6+/3/7/3/13+) 3.2

650ml bottle from BC Liquor. Pours a very clear light golden with ample, pillowy, lasting off white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, grassy and bitter. Taste is better than expected. A lovely biscuity malt marries well with clean and crisp hops, some sweetness there as well. Excellent mouthfeel. Lingering and welcome finish. Very solid.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, as Driftwood Eponymous Ale
Deep blond color; creamy head. Nice aroma of fruity hops and white refined sugar, a bit earthy too. Dry mouthfeel, some malt, grassy, but also with traces of vegetables, leading to some final astringency; strong bitterness, also a bit minty; not a bad recipe, but probably not the best batch.

Tap. Nearly golden with some head retention. Aromas of crisp hops and clean malt. Some hay and barley too. Taste is malty with a zing of hops. Aftertaste is dry and wheaty. Pretty enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011-03-23. Hazy orange body, smooth off-white head. 3+ Aroma is very perfumey and floral up front, floral lemon candy character, grassy, cotton candy, with a lemongrass transition, mild citrus hop character comes out as it warms. 6+ Flavour has modest hoppy bitterness throughout, citrus up from is overtaken by a weird floral sweetness, notes of cotton candy flavoured Jelly Belly candy at times, bitterness takes increased prominence as it warms. 6+ Average palate. Sort of enjoyable but the juxtaposition of flavours can be both intriguing and jarring depending on the sip. Unique. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very nice large solid head and a darkish yellow with some fog, quite good in the world of golden ales. Very hoppy aroma, almost IPA-ish. Flavour is essentially that of an IPA with just a hint of bready malts in there to indicate otherwise. Not bad, very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden, huge clingy, lasting white head. Aroma is initially a little sweaty, with citrus and sharp green elements (like fresh carrot tops). Flavour is citrus-kissed sweet pale malts with a nice rich earthy leafy hop finish, leaning toward marijuana in character. Really tasty. Finish is solidly bitter.
