2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This one was a gusher. Pours murky amber with some floaters and a 4 finger foamy beige head that leaves delicate lacing. The nose is fruity and grainy. The taste is caramel and fruit with a grainy finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not that great, but I think itís an older bottle.

Bottle: Deep blonde with a golden hue. Smallish white head. Aroma is light, but floral and bits of grass. Flavor is maltier than expected, some light florals and again grassy. Not bad. One of the better blondes that I choose to remember.
