3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Pale straw-colored ale with vigorous white head. Yeast/grass aroma. Mild flavor with hints of lemon. Hops finish. Not very hoppy, but appropriate to the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Straw hue with large fizzy head and good lace. Aroma hinted of hay field, aromatic hops, apple, bread, sweat, band-aid. Acidic and tangy taste. Some citrus, mild hop crispness. Moderate bitter and dry finish. Thin-bodied brew has a watery and highly carbonated mouthfeel. This ale has more in common with a pilsner than a bitter ale. Weak and acidic nature makes this an overrated beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 This one pours a clear, golden color with a medium sized, lingering, creamy white head. Light aroma of grass and hops with a touch of malts. Light body with lots of carbonation and a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. The flavor is lemony and hoppy with just the right amount of malts to balance the bitterness. The finish is crisp and dry, and has a nice lingering hop flavor. A great beer, very tasty and refreshing. Very clean.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium high carbonation, easy taste, somewhat vibrant at times, but ultimately a little disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clean golden. White head, nice lacing. Lightly metallic nose. Starts mild, light to medium bodied, light biscuit, pale malts. A tad thin finishing with light herbal hops in the back. A very drinkable English session brew.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw colored body with a thick, rocky, off-white head. Some lacing. Some floaters that don't look like yeast.
Hoppy aroma with some hints of malt.
Corn or adjunct like flavor dominates. Hoppiness of the aroma doesn't translate to much hop flavor. Not much here.
Medium bodied and medium carbonated.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
an attractive spectacle occurs as cascading beverage meets glass: slightly hazy trumpet golden, with a creamy lager-like porscelaine head-- one that, when briskly swirled, explodes like ocean surf with a fresh froth. aroma is moderate but that's a blessing--more of it would make matters worse: pencil shavings, very sticky grainy effect, like kellogg's rice krispies marshmallow treats, and a kind of puree´d mulchy fruitiness akin to baby food. watery, and the bitterness is tinny-- like sucking on bottle caps. crap floating inside becomes evident by bottles end: more like bits of crumbled cork than yeast residue. sweet vanilla- grasses, with finally a very soft carbonation and a slightly washed out cinammon-bark spiciness. could find redemption as a functional back-yard summer beer, but for me, those corn-grain malts too closely resemble an american malt liquor. doesn't entirely suck, but puckering physiognamy suggests it would like to.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy light golden-yellow in color with some large chunks of yeast in the bottom of the bottle, has a good frothy white head that sticks around and leaves a nice lacing, bready and flowery aromas. Decent grainy and bready malt flavors, light rounded mouthfeel that finishes with a mild bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The nose is hoppy. The color is golden and it has a small head. The flavor has a thin start, but then turning nicely hoppy. The only thing bearing this bear thru is the nice hopping - otherwise it is boring.
