Pouring cooper brown in color with a somewhat retained beige colored head. Aroma has notes of citric hops, and some earth maltiness too. Not hoppy enough flavor to be one of my favorites, however combines a nice hop, earthy malt balance. Pretty good for the style. I will probably keep some of these around this summer.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Grassy and hoppy aroma, stronger than in SNPA. Drank it from the bottle, though -- unsure how it looks. Very hoppy APA. Great grassy/citrussy flavor. Malt is still present, but very nicely hopped. Great always there APA.

This is hoppy. Hoppy Hoppy Hoppy. If one were to bottle rabbits, I bet it would taste like this...or blood and fur. At any rate, hoppy, not good draught, don’t do that. Bottle is fine for me, thanks.

Had some of this that my wife bought, and found it a pretty good compliment to the venison stew I made. Nothin’ but hops in the aroma, sharp and interesting. Not much head, but lacing was good. Flavor was not very balanced, and suffered from a lack of body, but good hop presence for the style.

It pours a thin white rocky head that quickly dissipates but doesn’t completely go away. The color is a beautiful crystal clear amber. The aroma is full of hops with a hint of fresh cut grass you almost miss. Most IPA’s I have tasted had more subtle hop aroma. The flavor is primarily bitter-sweet raspberry and caramel. The malt sweetness is a bit overpowered by the hop bitterness but it does come through. It finishes with an astringent bitterness that is long lasting.

Pours copper witha thin off-white head. Very fresh hoppy aroma, crisp and citrusy. Taste is hoppy the whole way though, its nice because its not bitter most of the way, just hoppy tasting. Very gentle malts up front, not very sweet. Doesn’t really feel balanced, but isn’t overly bitter which is nice.

Though the name of this one sounds like it’d be EZ, it’s actually is hard to get. Well at least in Atlanta it is. I love this stuff, my fave of all time along with it’s Indian buddy the IPA. Mmmmm beer.

Bitter, sorta tangy...little tacky after taste. Wouldn’t be my first choice...but wouldn’t complain if it was given to me.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Pours a golden, amber brown. Fizzy head with very visible carbonation. Clear and translucent - not a hazy pale ale. Smells slightly sweet, malty and hopped. Traces of lemon grass and honey. Tastes mild and soft. Honey comes through. Something about this beer reminded me of an oak barrel while some other aspect makes this seem like a pale ale / amber. I like more bite to pale ales. Mediocre.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 Clear copper coloured, small but lasting head. Very flowery and hoppy aroma. Flavour is a bit more malty, still with plenty of bitterness. Thanks to my colleague, who took this one home from the States.
