3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pale orange amber, bubbly off-white head fades to barely anything. Fruity apricot, hint of grassy apple hop, sweet malt nose. Palate is dry and spiced, hints of pepper, some caramel, slight phenolic notes, soft grassy peppery bitter finish. Not bad.

Bottle at home. Nice reddish-gold colour. Breezy aromas with a little hoppy marmalade and some banana. Flavours of apple and some weirdly pleasant aromatic flavours, like lavender or camomile. Goes down nicely. Very agreeable.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin white head, good lacing.
