Orange/Tan. This started off as a nice ale, a medium body and some bitter hop fruity-ness, but not too sweet. I really enjoyed it, but afterwards I was left with a strong taste of corrugated cardboard (youíve tasted that, havenít you?) - awful - maybe if you could just continuously drink this without stopping it would have been better!

Oh coriander seeds, thats what the obnoxious taste was. Attractive perfumey aroma, goregous caramel color with a billowing and persistent head. But the flavor is poor. One dimensional and metallic, slightly reminicent of taking a broom handle and hitting a free standing lp gas tank (for some reason this beer brought back a very specific memory from my childhood) kind of a metallic thud of a malt flavor. Disappointing.

Light golden with almost no head. This beer has a very special aroma of some undefinable flower or herb. For me it isnít coriander, but canít put a name on it. The flavour is very sour and maybe a little harsh, but it isnít unpleasant. Had a very long aftertaste with some bitterness and definately also sourness.

Yow. I definitely got the lemony-detergent thing out of this, both in the smell and in the taste. Take your run of the mill bitter, then put it in a bar where they serve lemon in every drink that they can find an excuse to. Now give it to some waiter who doesnít know better and let him squeeze an entire lemon in your drink, and youíll have this stuff. I was really wishing that the bottle was a 12 oz size after a while.

An interesting ale. I want to know how you get so much hop flavor and aroma (I know... late addition) but still I like the way these hops come though on this one with a touch of coriander. The balance is a little of but one sniff and I fogive them. A nice sping ale to brew with.

Foamy light amber, remarkable nose of (brown soap?). Foamy in the mouth, very bitter. Maybe I rate this wrong because Iím not used to the style!

Light copper; orangey, lemon aroma. The aroma could easily be mistaken for lemon dish detergent, but there really isnít any soapiness, itís just that strong in the lemon. Crisp, floral, spicy, ale; dry, harshly coriander finish.
