3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared @ the Purple Pig. Light golden, hazy, with a solid frothy white head that holds beautifully. Very interesting aroma that required some careful consideration to pin down. Both fruity and vegetal at the same time, like starfruit, or guava and celery, with creamy undertones. Flavours lean toward vegetal and lightly herbal, with straw-like malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Very fresh and lively.

Bottle - Perfumy, rose, orange and some weird artificial sweetness. Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Honey and light grain with that floral sweetness. Nice and floral, weird but fun.

This light golden ale pours with a very short white head, with considerable sediment throughout the pour. The flavor is pleasantly malty. A very nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy rich amber with a big off-white head. Light citrus, wheat (and other grain) aroma. Flavor has an earthiness to it along with spice and a big herbal component - fennel and licorice. Light and refreshing - but the herbal bit put me off after awhile.
