3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 0z. bottle. Reddish apearance, true to style, but little head and no lacing. Bitter throughout, as expected, with a very dry palate to begin with, that but became less so near the end...left a good finish. Not my favorite beer, but at 4.5% abv, a good one to have if drinking several.

Nice clear golden body, with a liight beige head. Looks like a lot of carbonation went into this little bottle. This beer has a distinct Tea like aroma, very different. Very hoppy flavor, with a good shot of bitterness. Very long finish, and bit of a hoppy aftertast. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is faint, but slightly vegetal with some meaty umami notes. Dark amber in color with a quickly diminishing thumb thick white (at start) head. Fore is very light tasting with some bready grain notes, mild honey/apple sweetness and some very faint citric notes. Overall it is pretty refreshing, but has a heavy crispness to it that lets you know that it is no lager.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 pours out of the bottle a weak, clear and watery, copper body with medium carbonation. while the appearance for the most part is unimpressive the medium-small head is rather creamy and has a beautiful yellow and eggshell-white color. there is a little bit of thinly scattered lacing. tastes of light hops and grass. can even pick up a bit of vanilla in the background. this has a sprinkle of sweetness throughout but then finishes mildly bitter. its not a very bravado beer but it was mellow and easy to drink. another beer drinker might find it lacking but I found it quite pleasingly simple and refreshing since I wasn’t in the mood for anything more complex.

Bottled on 01 25 06
I have to call this an "easy drinker" as I just swigged down two before realizing I hadn’t jotted down a single note. Pours a bright copper with a large, cream-colored head that (at just above cellar temp) leaves a wicked semblance of lacing. Citric hops and wet dog in the nose above stale, caramel nuttiness. Balanced flavor showcasing those nutty malts with a hint of honey-sweetness before ending with light bitterness. These are good and, like I mentioned, they go down fast.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma had a moderate bitter hop to it. Dark amber body with decent head that disipated and left a cloudy cover on the body. Flavor had a syrupy feel and that seemed to hold back the bitterness which was fine for me. Medium bitterness on the palate. A decent beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It was lightly cloudy with a lasting off white head. This was a beer that was fairly balanced. It wasn’t as hoppy as I would have expected.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong hop, and malt characteristics. Average body, with a sticky texture. Aromas are piney and a hint of syrup. Sharp, sweet bite. Not a whole lot to brag about here.

On Draft at Issac Newton’s. Pours amber with a decent sized white head. Aroma of pine, hops, and fruit. Flavor is citrusy, carbonated, sweet, with a slight bitter finish. Good body, good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really like this brew. It is my favourite of the Left Hand brews so far. It is hoppy, somewhat bitter, but also refreshing, not too watery, not too strong - it is a good balance. It would be nice if the ABV were a bit higher though.
