Golden, sparse head. Citrus aroma. Hoppy flavour with grapefruit. Taste of dry hops remains for a long time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright and refreshingly bitter. Surprisingly intense citrus activity in the aroma and flavor, with lemon and orange predominating. All this on top of a lighly sweet malt base. Very well done.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium gold, little head. Lightly floral hop aroma. Flavor is slightly bready, a touch of floral, a touch of lemon on the finish, and decidedly thin and watery overall. Really not very good. These types of beers rarely survive bottling well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with a good, white head. The aroma was subtly delightful: aromatic and floral. Taste had citrus and sweet malts. The intense bitter finish made this a beautifully refreshing beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured golden and clear with an off-white head. Bitter citrusy hops aroma with a touch of grass. Taste is very bitter and rather plain with a dry finish. Good for what it is, but one-dimensional.

Clear golden body under a fluffy white head. Nicely hopped aroma, strike me as being of the Noble variety. Butterscotch malt underneath. In the flavor the lemony, grassy hops take precendent. They combine with the light mouthfeel and medium carbonation to produce a pretty refreshing beer.
