3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy deep gold with a thin white cap. The aroma is citrusy, malty, candy orange, good. The flavour starts out with a harsh hop bitterness, but then quickly moves onto a light refreshing mingle of malt and hop, and then ends with some grapefruit bitterness. Finish is a bit soapy.
It does a few things bad, but it does most things well. Decent brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle - pours clear gold/copper with a thick white head that leaves chunky lacing. Aroma similar to many of GRís other beers in that itís muted, a result of the incredibly hard water they use. Still, nice - caramel malts, some green apple, a faint hint of sourness (not in a bad way). Flavour amps it up a notch, revealing fresh mown hay, light lemon notes, and a pleasing herbal quality, finished with a firm bitterness. Clean, simple, eminently quaffable, yet another solid release from GRB.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant floral hop aroma with notes of caramel. Gold and sparkling, leaves a continuous lace on top. Flavor is grassy, moderately bitter, a bit resiny, very dry malts. Medium bodied with a good dry aftertaste. Really nice beer, hearty but easy to drink, Iíll be buying more this fall!

Bottle. Orange-amber colour, creamy head. Aroma of bready malts. Taste is well-balanced, slight woodiness, bitter finish. Like the deScription says, simple and straightforward, but quite well done.
