12oz bottle. Poured a clear golden red color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some notes of honey, floral notes, sweetness in there. Flavor was a bit on the dry side, plenty of honey notes. Flavor also had some floral characters, but not too overpowering.

12oz bottle pours a hazy caramel amber with almost no head. Smells herbal, some citrus, soap. Flavor is very herbal, tannic, sun tea, bouqet garni. Astringent finish.

Flat pour, iced tea appearance. Floral flavors with an undertone of honey. Drinkable, just not extrodanary.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear reddish copper with a small white head, plenty of carbonation. The aroma is quite floral with some herbal notes. The taste is very herbal and has a light spice on the finish. Not for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep caramel coloured body with a bit of an apricot glow and a thin, half centimetre tall soapy foamy white head. Aroma of grass, soap, pale malt and a bit of mushroomy funk. Light-bodied; Assertive soapy and cardboardie malt flavours with not much else and nothing pleasant about this. Aftertaste shows a little grass, some light sweetness and nothing else aside from some stale malt/cardboard. Overall, a fairly poor offering and definitely not worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 07-February-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 17-February-2013.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Poured a clear golden color with a small white head that lasts. Mild aroma of sweet malt and floral notes. The initial taste provided some sweetness from the honey and breadiness from the malts, followed by a light floral pressence. A refreshing spring beer with some mild tartness in the finish. Light bodied, moderate carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nothing special with this one, slightly sweet with a carbonated finish, not to much of a backbone.
