3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer engine. Slightly hazy amber body, minimal carbonation. Apple-sweet start with a smoot orange-rind finish. Stawberry notes. The casking seemed to take a lot of the bite off the hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Beer engine)Off-white head that dissipates. Amber color with v. slight cloudiness. Pine in nose and palate. Assertively bitter, maltiness is there, but masked by bitterness. Oaky and dry, lasting bitterness. Nice, but not their best.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 (Beer Engine) Creamy white head that lasts. Amber/gold body. Piney resin aroma. Watery pine taste with some pepper on top and a weird sweet (bread?)finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
light amber body, thin white head. spicy and sharp, somewhat piney. Hoodies and cascades involved here. perhaps amarillos too? spritzy and hoppy, but decent balance and depth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
CASK. Slightly hazed copper color with a small off white head. Orange citrus and mild pine aroma. Smooth malt flavors with a mix of pine and citrus. Slightly medicinal. Decent, but nothing special session.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderfully hoppy, floral bouquet. Particles visible, deep amber, off-white head. Cask conditioned, room temperature. Smooth and hoppy, but doesn't have enough sweetness to offset bitterness. A little too cloying and sour.
