Pours a clear gold with a near white very thick head. The aroma is of light hops and lemon. Taste is very malt forward with a subtle growing bitterness in the finish. The beer lingers as peppery on the tounge after the taste is do e.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transparent straw color in the glass. Noble hops play a prominent role, which I enjoyed. Grainy malt base on the palate, could come together a little better in terms of smoothness and integration of different components but overall not a bad beer at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass.
5.0 A: Clear pale golden wheat color. Two fingers of creamy/pillowy white head. Retention is very good and lots of lacing is left behind.
3.5 S: Sweet grainy maltiness with a grassy hoppiness. Simple, but gets the job done well.
3.5 T: Grainy malts. Good interplay between the moderate bitterness and the moderate neutral malt sweetness. Perhaps a touch doughy. Grassy hop flavor.
3.5 M: Light body on the heavier end. Good moderate, crisp carbonation. A touch of creaminess to round things out.
3.5 D: Solid, easy drinking pils. Not much else to say.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light gold with a thin white head and aromas of skunky hops and light honey/biscuit malt. Flavor is an interesting ebb and flow of sweet and hops... a bit of that honey buns sweetness washes back and forth with herbal and grassy hops flavors, usually settling on a slightly bitter and dry finish, but every now and again, a bit of pear sweetness sticks out and hangs on for the ride.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a bright golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was sharp and crisp bitter perfumey and fruity hops with a touch of grape and noticeable alcohol. The flavor was bitter, bready, nutty and had a crisp citric hop presence and a note that reminded me of pretzel dough. The finish was very long bread, nut and fruit. Medium body. Solid.

From the 12oz bottle purchased at The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Strongly fruity and dry, with a nice appearance in the galss and a stark white head. I wonder what it would taste like with some additional fruit(s) thrown in? The comical label is very appealing, even to my five year old son, who instantly recognized the character of the legendary fairy tale. Worthy of a revisit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden amber, nice head cover and streaks of lace. The aroma is more bracing than the taste - caramel malt offset by light hop bitters. Really simple, but quite drinkable. Recommended.
