IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Poured a clear golden with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of flowers, a bit of honey, some grassy hops. Flavor is lightly sweet with lots of floral essences, some grassy hops, a touch of dry alcohol. Clean and pleasant. Unequivocally not bad.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 12, 2006
Poured from the bottle, a good looking clear straw amber colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is delightfully sweet - yeast and fruit (pineapple) - with some piney notes. Tangy and yeasty flavours give way to a carbonated mouth feel and a short creamy finish. Most enjoyable after a hard day skiing on the slopes at Morzine-Avoriaz!

On the sweetish side, citrusy, honey dominate, abit watery, but still nice, alcohol is well hidden.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 4, 2006
11.2 oz bottle pours a very pale yellow with very active carbonation and a thick white head. Smells very sweet and somewhat yeasty. The taste is extremely mellow with a strange copper tinge to it. A few into it the strange taste normalizes though, and a citrus fruity taste appears. Interesting ale to say the least.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 2, 2006
A lot of honey in the aroma, along with and a heavy dose of crystal malt. Very fruit and honey orientated taste, but slightly watery, but in a postive is layered out and much more complex and changing then expected.
