Small head for a big beer. Smooth going down, with an ever so slight fruity but nice kickback. Refreshing on a hot Puget Sound day --- great with the BBQ. Have a go at this and the old saying: "Gentlemen do prefer blondes’ will ring true!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is bready, malt syrup, some honey, floral and slightly metallic. Taste is sweet then medicinal / vegetal bitter like some ancient elixir, but not the kind that gives you immortality and thus worthy of the Ill-fated Eternal Drain Pour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at San Jose airport. Husky grainy aroma. Faint floral. Clear dark gold with head that quickly dissipated to a collar and dusting, but there is nice patterning down the sides. Tate is moderately astringent with moderate high bittering. Slight alcohol warmth is nice. Really a bit rough and lacking rich maltiness that this style demands.

Tap @ Gordon Biersch Taipei. Hazy yellow amber, reasonable head. Lemon yeast aroma. Black currant and malt flavour. Flowery perfumey aftertaste. Not one to get excited about.

On tap at Oakland airport. Light copper body, minimal head. Sweet malt aroma, taste follows with more sweet malt, honey. Body is fantastic, slick, slippery. Shame they serve it ice cold.

This was a good beer it had a smooth balance between hops and malts, it didn't have that pronounced hop note that I expect though

On tap at DTW airport. Sweet, fresh base malt with very low to no hops presence. Clear orange-gold under a thin, white collar. Flavour is sweet, cracker and bread malt with a moderate bitterness and zesty noble hops accent. Medium body, smooth, medium carbonation, slightly warming.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle on 14-Nov-2015, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Hazy pale amber colour with a medium sized creamy white head which slowly dissipates. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of cereal, yeast and sweet malt. Flavour of toasted caramel malt and hops. A pretty decent creamy bittersweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Detroit Metro airport, pours a bright, clear honey color with a tan head. The smell is toasted malt, mild fruit, caramel and bread. The taste is as it smells with a dry ending. The body is light+ with active, prickly carbonation. Just OK.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Flavor is a bit not as sweet as expected, in fact, a bit tart. However, the overall impression of this brew is good and I expect it to hold it’s own against the standard, average brew served by the major beer companies.
