kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
500mL bottle, courtesy of omhper. Thanks, Per! Pours a murky orangish-brown color; fluffy, khaki-colored head with excellent retention and lacing. Floral and fruity hops in the aroma; some cedar and mate tea (thanks, Eben) and red fruits; quite pleasant, if a little overripe. A zest of grassy and herbal hops at the front; definitely get that mate / tea-like malt character at the core; a good twist on the typical earthy, biscuity ESB, with a bit more very ripe red fruit. Medium, biscuity and earthy finish.

Stine (1657) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Poured from a 500 ml. Golden orange hue, fairly hazy but still clear. Sweet and grassy aroma of yerba mate, graham, and orange. Tea extends itself indefinitely with a light hint of cherry syrup. Crisp, understated bitterness of grass and sesame seed; certainly heavy and perhaps overly so on EKG. Lightly nutty, very leafy, long resinous character and the softest shade of honey. Bright fruit sugar darts in and out, suggesting cotton candy. Mild astringency finishes. More or less an uninteresting hoppy pale type. Thanks for sharing, Ken!

courtesy of Per Forsgren - dark amber colour with a little persistent beige foam; very hoppy, aroma of herbs, mint and gentian; some red fruits, medium-bodied and very bitter, dry and long bitter herbal and fruity finish - complex and very good
