This beer gives great head! The label warns it should be poured unhurriedly. I say any impatience in pouring will result in a glass of foam. My first impresasion of this ale was that it was distinctive. As the glass emptied however I found myself wanting more. I went back to the store and got a 4 pack. The flavor of this ale is adictive. The more I drink it the more I like it.

Personally, the beeer that I judge other beer by. Love the large foamy head. Bitter but not overly. Great aroma and is almost fruity in flavor. Well worth the price.

An immediate favorite. Pours very carbonated but the head disapated slowley to a small froth. Crisp clean tast. Almost like a combination of beer and a zesty white wine.

Bottle. Pours golden with a giant white foamy head and tiny carbonation bubbles that wonít quit. A very lemony aroma dominates with apples, green grapes, and other light fruits following through to the taste. Very nice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Massive, long-lasting white head. Slight citrus and clean, yeasty aroma. Moderte carbonation. Crisp, malty, slightly lemony finish. Very well balanced and very, very drinkable. A classic.

I really thought I was going to like this beer more, given all the hype surrounding it, but it was just boring. Pleasant lemony smell, lovely malty fruity taste, some stuff in there I couldnít distinguish (this was last night, so I donít remember, either). Perfect mouthfeel, just the right carbonation (the bubbles tickle). But it was missing that oomph I was expecting. Oh well.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Possibly one of the finest ales I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. When I first tried it in Edinburgh, I didnít know what to expect, a friend had advised me to order it. When it was poured, I looked at the color and immediately formed an impression of what to expect -- and boy was I wrong. The color is golden, but the taste is much closer to a Scottish Ale, although itís also fruity with a unique carbonation. I nearly jumped out of my seat; upon first taste I was in love.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
[750 ml. bottle] Pours a bright golden color.. with a huge, white head. Aroma is excellent, with banana and spices. Taste is quite sweet, but very complex.. finishing with a nice, slight alcohol burn and bitterness. This is a very good brew.

From the bottle.
Pours a light hazy goal with a voluptuous white head; the nose provides great big aroma of golden raisins, banana, warm grass, and spice (coriander?). The flavor follows; sweet at first touch, a slight burn of alcohol (surprisingly scant for 8.5%), banana and bubblegum and and a sour lemon twist with enough bitter follow-through to really round the whole thing out nicely.
A fine beer.
