2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clean sweet malty flavor and aroma, mildly dry bitter finish. Pretty simple, easy drinking stuff, nothing wrong, nothing exciting.

I bought a single bottle (didn’t want to risk a bad six pack).. This is something I wish I would’ve bought a six pack of. Good stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) Pale golden colour with medium foamy white head. The aroma is malty with elements of corn and spice. A Lager-like but tasty Helles. Malty mouth with slight bitter and hoppy finish, a little bit oily though. Drinkable

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle poured a crystal clear golden liquid with a medium creamy white head. The head lasted nicely leaving beautiful lacing. The aroma is of sweet malt balanced nicely with the hops. The flavor starts off smooth with malt sweetness. Hop bitterness begins comes out in the middle and the finish is crisp, quite dry and full of hop bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; pale golden colour, quickly vanishing thin white head; fruity, malty nose; smooth, mild, but not bland, medium bodied; malty and (apple?) fruity aftertaste with a tinge of hops. Good for a lazy summer’s day under a big, shady chestnut tree.......

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dense and compact foam, lightly evanescent. Yellow gold color, decided but little bubbly. Determined alcohol and malt scent; pleasant to the nose. Full bodied and alcoholic taste. Bitter finish of good persistence.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. White huge head. Malty, light sour nose. Flavour of malt and some hops. Has a note of overripe fruit. Ends on a light bitter note. A little too bland for my likings.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 Pours slightly cloudy pale gold with a foamy snow-white head which dissipates to nice lace. Not too aromatic although notes of peaches, lemons, honey, molasses, and herbs came through to me. Very clean bitter taste with molasses, sweet malt, malt, lemon, honey, herbal hops, and hoppy bitterness. Nice mouthfeel, full body with a dry bitter finish.
