3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Bottled. Hazy brownish amber, rich head. Floral yeasty nose. Sweetish and fruity, medicinal with plenty of peachy hops. Soapy orangey and yeasty with lively spritzy mouthfeel Piney bitterish finish with a warming tingle. Isekadoyas style definitions may be somewhat unique, but they make good beers!

1st July 2010
Hazy chesnut brown beer. Frothy off white head. Light frothy palate with a little carbonated nip. Trace of apple leads to mild toffee malt. Finishes dry and crisp with a little hop bitterness. Needs something more!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle. Slight gusher out of the bottle, that yields giant, rocky beige head atop cloudy chestnut brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry/wood, some lemon. Taste is medium sweet, nut, some cherry/sour, caramel, light chocolate, herbal/grassy. Light-medium body, light effervescence. Infected for sure, but fortunate to get Brett or something similar.

Thanks Presario. A rice beer with brown malts. Pours grapefruit colour with lotsa white head. A distinct barnyard, but not much of that in the taste. Leaves a lot of lace, the carbonation is there and it is drinkable this beer. Not a ot of mouthfeel.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with an averae sandy coloured head showing weak retention. Aroma of weak caramel and plastic. Flavour is weak caramel that is completely overwhelmed by nasty plastic/bandaid nastiness. Couldn’t finish it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 Cask Version at Qbrick. Glowing orange-brown color. Complex aroma of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, pine, plum. A decent amount of piney, citrus hops in the flavor to perfectly balance the toffee and caramel. Great body and smoothness. Very enjoyable and exceptionally well balanced. The flavor of the malt in this one really comes out best in the Real Ale version.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle picked up in Cali for me by Eric- thanks man. Pours a light brown almost amber color with a massive overly-carbonated head. The aroma is lots of hops and some biscuit, almost woody. A spicy brown ale, lots of pine-like hops and dry spicy ginger and light brown malts. Unusual. Almost sour in its spiciness. Infected? Probably. Still, quite nice.
