2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
75 cl. It’s stale with a lot of carbonation and a weak aroma. The flavour is stale with weak floral notes of clover and citrus. Boring and I have to give up before the bottle is empty...

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Grassy barnyard and sour malt aroma. Cloudy tan color with small head. Light flavor of grass/hay and sour malt with moderate hops finish. Nice tasting - has quite a bit of hops kick but fairly light body - wish it had a stronger flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy orange-kissed golden colour. Very thick sticky head. Aroma is quite earthy with a dank mustiness. Lots of basementy funky character. As it warms more sweet fruity character comes to the fore. Apricot, pear and apple along with a nice honey/caramel sweetness. Not really spicy per se, but the blend of fruit, fruit skins, and sweetness is quite compelling. A light herbal/grassy bitterness along with a white peppery bite. A bit of lemon and orange tartness as it starts to warm up. I quite like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Gold pour with 1-finger creamy white head. Aroma of some funky yeast, hopcitrus, apricot, and slight florals. The taste is floral and hopcitric, with mid-palate yeasty funk and spice. This one gets a bit fruitier and less dry as it warms up.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This golden ale pours with no head. There is an initially sweet hoppy flavor with a slightly bitter finish. A bit watery tasting at first, but the flavor intensifies as the beer warms.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark gold, thin white suds. Some sesame nuttiness, metal and coriander in the nose. Quite a pleasantly dry, metallic, faintly spicy Belgian wannabe.

Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Slight sweet malt, hay, skunky hop, and spice aroma. Slightly sweet malt flavor with good hop qualities (citrus and spice). Medium body. A bit of breadiness lingers with hops. Refreshing. Not bad.
