2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber-orange colour. Smokey, fruity, earthy, mossy, toasty, but not very assertive amounts of any of these, make up the aroma and palate of this beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red copper colour with a big hoppy alty nose. Caramel malts, nuts, with lots of floral hops (good for QC beer), but a little acidic point (beer may be going off).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2003 (Tap) Standard soft bitter…Lambent hop bitterness and caramel, fruity malt… 3/5
(Bottle) A gentle citrus breeze caresses the rose and hop garden...Needless to say, this wet earth attracts a horde of honey bees...A bit thin like most Barberies, but nice nonetheless...Quaffable equilibrium leading to refreshing grassy hop aftertaste...

Hazy red amber, with a medium sized tan head. Nice malty bitterness with a pleasant slightly tart tang to it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[079-20061028] 500mL. Hazelnut-mixed-with-QC-bottle-conditioning aroma. Cloudy, brown body with a big quick light brown head. Lightly nutty flavour, fairly smooth, bit of a bitter kick from the bottle along with some bandaid notes, and an OK aftertaste. Medium palate. Would be OK to repeat.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy dark ruby-brown with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, spices, hops and some sweet fruit. Hoppy fruity flavour with some malt, quite a lot of spices and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, malty and hoppy nose. A good herbal bitter with cloves? and roasted bicuits. The finish is long, accompanied by a definition of hop bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2006 Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy, his bottle. Deep clear ruby-copper with a large lasting foamy-sticky straw-coloured head. Dry, peppery-yeasty aroma, light sweet dusty malt, a hint of fruit, quite bitter but almost sweet cherry fruitiness emerges as it opens up and the sharp yeast diminishes. Bitter taste, like appleseed, light fruit, not much malt, the hops are very dry, almost stale - long somewhat harsh bitter aftertaste. Light bodied, very astringent, almost burnt bitter linger - not bad, but the bitterness is a little off-putting, needs more funky/pungent UK hop character.
