3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin white head. Light brown, see through. Malty nose, slightly sweet. Flavor is interesting. Has bitterness, but it is more like the kind of bitterness you get from exotic cabbage. Flavor is smooth and straw-like, with a nice finish. Interesting beer.

I thought this ws a rather interesting brew and I give it props for using a non-hops source of bittering. The flavor is predominantly malt, it has a straw-like smell, like a summer hayfield. A hint of black pepper taste , I assume from the heather. Bitterness barely percievable, in that respect similar to scottish hopped beers. Due to lack of hops, you won't be left drowsy and "becoming one with the couch". It was good and inspiring from a homebrewer's perspective

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light and airy aroma. Pours light and golden with creamy head. a springy, floral, citrusy flavor. Smooth palate but you have to actually try and taste it. Has a little linger on the back of the tongue. Refreshing brew.

Nose of flowers and brown sugar. Pours a medium clover honey with golden highlights. The dense off-white creamy head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. Wow! The flavor assaults the tongue with heavy malt and jabs of spice and citrus zing here and there. The medium creamy body is lively and the finish is a touch cloying. A nice surprise.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden/copper color. Hoppy aroma. Mildly hopy and malty, like a macro pilsner in many ways. Slightly dry and hints of rye. Not a big fan of this one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light color, watery with a rapidly dissipating white head. Nose is floral and herbal. Flavour is waterey, earthy and slightly herbal. Nothing really bad here, all the flavours are just way too subdued and watered down.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with thin white quickly discipating white head, kind of hazy. The nose is sheaty and grainy barley. The taste has that lager funk wheaty and not all that good. Nothing to go crazy over.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly light beer, almost watery, poured with small soap foam looking head. Subtle herbal flavours add nicely to the beer and without them it would be a very boring beer.

This beer was as easy drinking beer as I've had. Fruits and Flowers in the aroma. Worth a try.
