3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Floral and fruit in the aroma. Plenty of hops, too. I find more bitterness than other raters have indicated. Very pleasant. Some tartness is evident, perhaps grapefruit. The body is medium to light and in color the beer is a nice amber. Remainng lacing is on the oil side. Some of the malt appeared in the finish. This was an interesting mix of sour, sweet, and bitter. Very nice.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Lovely nose full of aroma hops. Medium body with a caramelish sweetness and some great hops leaving more flavour and aroma than bitterness. Great brew. 200306
