3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rattle N Hum during their Mikkeller single hop series event. All of them pour pretty much the same, ruby tinged amber with medium to thick beige heads, depending on the pour. The malt profile on them is all fairly consistent as well, tending to be a bit too sweet for my tastes, often masking some of the more delicate hops. Aromas of smooth sweet citrus, light lemon. Crisp and lemony, malt and citrus. Grapefruit, slow malty grapefruit finish.

Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place shared among a group of five locals. Pours a clear orange-copper color with a small off-white head that leaves a bit of lace- all 19 looked like this. Aroma was dominated by soap, earth, and cereal. The flavor had some light hops, grains, grass, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Fairly dull compared to others in the series.

On tap at the Mikkeller Pub
Copper hazy, thick white head. Smells of flowers and berries. Body is quite malty, some sweetness. Finish is hoppy and bitter but i miss more hop tones. I guess Willamette is too weak alone
