aroma is fruity, a bit of yeast, bit funky sweet, way overripe banana. nice long white head. Refreshing attack of well balanced hops and darker malt. Fun.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light brown with a small white head. Aroma is hugely diacetyl (buttery popcorn). Really canít get anything else. Flavor is more diacetyl with peppery spices and some bitterness in the finish. Watery, weak palate. This is bad...drain pour...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma very unique, roses, mint, grapefruit, marshmallow, some sort of minty candy. Flavor starts quite sweet and malty but is joined by an herbal tartness and straight bitterness. A bit watery. This one was odd. So odd in fact that I clearly had a terribly difficult time describing what the hell I was tasting. Though nothing about it was too offensive, I canít imagine this is the beer that was originally designed...

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy amber color. Yeasty nose with some citrus action - I get lemon.
Pretty smooth upfront, with an under layer of raisin flavor. Medium body that fades to a creamy finish.
I like this beer, and itís definitely one of the better ones from McNeillís.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A rather hoppy amber ale that was not as clean as I could have hoped.
Generous toasty aspirations. Interesting dried fruits sweetness. Drying out rapidly.
Rather soapy hop character undermines the earthy, sweet and caramelized malt qualities. Quite a fruity ale, but not very clean with an oldish yeast feel that feels metallic and.. mushroomy?.
