2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured this at a good temperature with a very fizzy, then scummy head. Aroma was abundant tropical fruit with some yeast and hop. Flavor’s a bit more traditionally steam, but not much. The heavy carbonic tang hinders. Body’s a tad thin. Finish is like flavor, not very balanced, too long lasting. Never want another.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a alsmost hefeweizen colour, with a small white head that disappears a bit too fast. Aroma of hay, grain and dough. Taste is quite the same, some light citric hints in there aswell. Good body and quite a lot of carbonation. Very refreshing. Maybe it could have some more depht to it, but quite a nice blonde.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy, light yellow beer with a quite big and white head. The nos is strongly fruitfull, tropical fruits, mangos and peaches, some pine needles and citrusfruits. Taste of light malts, not so fruitfull than aroma, still citrusfruits, some bitterness, too short. Light bodied together with a short taste makes this too thin to drink. Nice aroma but taste is too simple and short, easy to enjoy.

330ml bottle in NZ 4.5% ABV bb 29 Jan 2014
Pale, hazy golden-yellow body with a fine white head, and champagne-like visible carbonation .
Feel: Light and thin body with medium-high carbonation.
Aroma: sweet and fruity with some bready malt in the background.
Flavor: lemony white bread with a touch of spicy hops.
O: A poor imitation of the original Anchor Steam. Not bad but not worth seeking out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (thanks laiti!). Slightly hazy golden colour, mediumsized white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is nicely floral with some mild nectary and fruity notes to it. Flavour is wheat, some floral notes as well as some nice resiny notes to it. Nice mellow bitterness in the finish. Good brew!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is citrus & hay. Little bit more going on in the taste. Bitter orange, lemon, nectarine, rose hips. Dry finish. Quite watery though. Not a bad beer for a hot day watching the cricket.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 5.12.2013
Aroma is fruity with hops and apricot. It is a bit short, which tells me about low ABV. Flavour starts with fruity hops but turns rather quickly into hay, cardboard and minerals. Feels also watery. Well, at least the aroma was nice.
