3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Had at a restaurant in Homer. Pours a bright golden color with a small white head. Floral hop aroma includes mild pine as well. Crisp and mild hoppy taste is of lemongrass, citrus zest and light herbs. Highly carbonated. Better body than one may expect from a low ABV beer. Fresh and crisp tasting. Nicely sessionable for sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22-Jan-08 (Draft: Duggan’s Waterfront Pub in Homer, AK) Very light and grainy malts and mild English hop aromas greet the nose, and though the beer has a nice overall aroma, there’s not enough of it. On the palate, the pale malt backbone isn’t grainy or caramely. Hops are moderately bitter, but are at the forefront and have a bright finish. Light-medium body, but wonderfully crisp and clean with a long-lasting bitterness. Medium carbonation. Golden in color and fairly hazy. An off-white head pours to half an inch before settling to a think layer, leaving lots of patchy lace on the glass. My first beer from this brewery and it’s a nice one.

On tap at Humpy’s. Deep golden color with a sparse white head. The aroma was mostly orange peel hoppiness. Flavors of orange peel, pine, grapefruit and some peach. This was a good session beer and went well with the halibut burger.

Floral hop bouquet, citrus/grapefruit. Nice bitterness, lots of acidic grapefruit. Looks like thats all I wrote for this one. A nice beer, but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Into a growler at the brewery then into my belly, 7/7/05: Hazy orange-yellow with a quality foam top. Soapy, citric nose. Tart citric bitterness presides with a sharp sting. This went down great as I watched the surf on Homer Spit. Great session beer.
