4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 swing top from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours orange gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is full of grassy and herb hop. Med body. It has biscuit and strong noble hop for flavor. Quite soft and lush in the mouth. Doesn’t seem to make it less than crisp though. Finishes quite dry with a long lingering bitterness in the mouth. Just excellent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Starts off with a strong floral hop aroma which fades into a grassy note. Bready malt gives a slight sweetness and there is a hint of yeast and mid esters. The flavor is exceedingly bitter, or at least harshly bitter, and unpleasant. It’s also very grassy. Some mild floral hop notes, bread, and a slight sweetness of malt. Overall, though, this was not something I enjoyed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in the fridge for a long while. Pours with a large white head. Clear golden hued body. Grassy and bready aromas, straw, low sulfur, low metal. Clean. Mostly a pils and saaz like character. Flavors are bready and sweet with low grain, grass. A bit earthy and metallic. Clean and crisp finish though. Lively bubbles, dry, not bad. A bit astringent, possibly an off water profile for the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, swing-top. Pours with an intensely deep golden-copper color, and a airy, foamy top. The aroma is intensely malty, hinting what materializes on the drink ... a rich, sweet, alcohol-heavy malty brew, topped off with a nice Teutonic bitter kiss. The more I drink, it becomes almost maibock-like, losing its appeal as it warms. (#4713, 7/29/2012)
