(11.2oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear rich orange with lasting white bubbles. Nose of pine, cream and honey. Taste of bitter grapefruit, pine, decent malt to match but some hairspray in here as well. Creamy finish finish is bitter.

330ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Orange amber in colour with a thin but lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is a bit bready, light citrus with some caramel. The flavour is lightly bitter, some oranges, light hops, some light spice, toffee sweetness. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, lightly bitter with an underlying sweetness. A lighter hop but Mikkeller seems to have put it to good use.

"Pine, earthy hops. A little too malty with this hop, not one of my favorites, being used. Still pleasant, though..

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The East Kent Golding version in this fascinating series, with milky, pale beige head which is relatively unstable compared to the other versions; deep cloudy amber colour. Fresh fruity aroma of peach, lemon zest, apple peel, grass, grapefruit, flowers, nutmeg and caramel. Soft fruity taste with subdued citrus, smooth caramel malt base, quickly dominated by a soft herbal, grassy, flowery hop bitterness, refreshing and tingling, long, staying mild and gentle as can be expected from this variety.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The look is orange in color, off white head, and cloudy. The smell is hops, fruits,
floral, and grass. The taste is some bitterness, floral, grassy.

Didn’t notice 22/12/11 on the cap. This shouldn’t have been on the shelf. Malt is kind of nice but hops are pretty much all gone. The result is hollow.

April 2010. 12 oz. bottle. My least favorite of the single hop series. Citrus, pine and hop flavors, but not as balanced as others in the series and the finish is less hoppy.
