walleye (1067) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2006
from the tap. poured a copper amber, with a small ring of off white head do to the fact that person who poured the beer into the mug filled it to the top. araoma mild hops, some sweetness, malts, amd a hint of grain. flavor, the hops and malts were well balanced, honey nice bitterness, spices. good beer going to have to try from the bottle because on tap it was good. nice smooth mouthfeel to this.

Nose is subtle with some malt. Pours medium copper-amber. Flavour is nicely bitter with some citrus and a touch of herbaceousness - maybe some thyme or something. Finish is long and dry, although the palate is a little watery.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 RestaurantI really enjoyed this beer from start to finish. A light copper. A little cloudy. Smooth clean very good beer. Had a second taste. Not at a restauraunt this time and it wasn’t quite as good, but still good.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2006
Tasted 16/04/2006. 330ml bottle from Rumble’s, Wellington. Pale copper, bright, lightly carbonated, with a foamy light-tan head that laces a little but doesn’t linger for long. Barley sugars and nutty grain on the nose, a hint of citrus and an appealing, faint and slightly musty, yeast note. Dry toffee-like malt up front, in the mouth, with a mild lolly sweetness. This is followed by citrus hop flavour and a strong, pepper and grass, bitterness. The malt profile holds all the way through the bitter finish. Slightly hard water but not quite as much as some English pales, like Taylor’s Landlord. Soft-medium carbonation in the mouth, medium weight. Great beer, well crafted. A classic strong pale ale, which I’m surprised hasn’t scored more strongly on here. Perhaps a little too subtle for the US market.

3.23 average. This is crazy. What a great taste, colour, and carbonation. Man I wished I lived in Chicago.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 2007-09-29, draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location, 6-3-7-4-14=34
Hazy light amber color. Light malt aroma, light hop. The mouthfeel is a bit dry, with some toffee flavor and a quite good hopping. Pleasant.

2006-01-27, bottle, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Hazy amber color. Aroma of beans, malt, hop. Some malt aroma, breakfast cereals and bra; something’s wrong. Quite strong bitterness.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2006
Bottled. Clear copper colour. Bubbly head. Woody, US hop nose, and perhaps a tad of nuttiness. Loads o flavouring hops, but very plain in flavour overall. Bit thin and watery. Tasty but thin.
