it is truly wild how they can use the word hop in the deScription. there is not much to say if you do not want to say anything detrimental.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Semi-sweet but weak malt profile, has a bit of a sour grainy nose, with a slight bit of citrus. Nothing to remember, very forgettable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange gold pour with a loose white noisy head. Weak malt nose. Easy drinking simple lager, nothing redeeming at all.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice gold color with a citris aroma. The taste is that of malt with a fruitish style hop that gives a nice balance. Can’t say it is because of organic ingredients or just a good brew master but this one is better than your typical domestic lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. pours clear and deep golden with a nice head. aroma is slight of banana bread. mouthful has got a decent malt body with some zippy carbonation. i would just like to know why AB is nowhere to be seen on the label... they sneak around in the micro brew shelves...

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ab’s attempt at a decent organic beer was a little weak to me. Pours an amber body with a hoppy aroma. The first initial taste is of citrus and then it fades away from there. Weak and a tad on the watery side. a little unbalanced.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber with white head. Smells of citrus and grass. Taste is light sweet roasted malt with a touch of hop bitterness and a lingering sweetness on the tounge well into the aftertaste. Medium body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 4/24/08. 12oz bottle. 07341 FJ23. Whatever that means. Filtered with an amber golden hue. Lively brew with a spiraling white head. Doughy malt nose. Mild citrus hop nose. Light to medium bodied and bigger than most in this category. Tingling bitter effervescence. Crisp with a mild caramel malt flaovr. Dry with a kiss of hops. RIP

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark gold color with a decent off white head which quickly fades. Musty hop aroma makes me cringe but the taste is not bad, malty with a caramel note and some mild bitterness.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Poured a darkish amber in color with a medium, almost creamy white head that hung around. Aroma is somewhat sweet and malty with a distinct "graininess". Not much in the way of hops. Flavor is typical of what I have come to expect from AB’s "premium" beers... lackluster flavor, little hopping and containing too much of the "megaswill" influence to be a really good beer... bred for profit and the bottom line and not quality and taste. Not impressive, even if it is "organic", that does not make it *good*!
