4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500ml bottle on 21/5/2012. Pours a clear light golden with a medium head. Has an exquisite aroma of apricot, peach and passionfruit, along with strong floral and hoppy notes. The flavours include light caramel malt, citrus and stone fruits, and a firm citric hoppy bitterness with a touch of grapefruit. Has a slightly vinous character. Light bodied and very refreshing, but more IPA than golden ale in terms of flavour. Top stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, as pictured. I have no idea how old this is, I bought it on a whim because I thought the label was cool. Pours a clear gold, thin white head. Spicy scent, lemony. Taste is similar. Easy to drink yet flavorful. I like this.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer has an incredible hoppy aroma which smells refreshingly citric and grassy. The taste is a bit of a letdown as the bittering hops are slightly too prominent. Lose 15g of bittering hops and add 15g of flavoring or dry hops and this beer would be amazing

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

I liked it. Has that farm, crisp linen flavor and aroma I so like nice, fairly dry finish. Glad I had a chance at this one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with not much head. Has a weird briny overtone on the nose with a side over overfilled garbage can and burnt rubber. Not appetizing at all. Skanky. Not much depth on the palate with a lot of bitterness and brine and sour pinecones. Gross.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear blonde with about 3 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of citrus, dry fruits, champagne yeast and grass. Taste is medium bitter. Lots of floral, piney and citrus hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat oily texture. Lively carbonation and a very long, very bitter finish. Overall, Iím digging this beer. I would gladly drink this again and again!
