UPDATED: JUN 23, 2004 Bottle: a bit vague in the description. Pours a nice amber-yellow color with more than ample head. Hoppy with fresh grass and straw notes. i believe it is the lime leaves that culminate with the dry finish. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Nose is mildly hoppy. Taste is a good mix of citrus, hay, and hops with a medium sweetness. A bit of lemon hops and tanginess. quick clean and mellow to drink. Would be a good summer beer. Not as complex as most new belgium beers. It’s kind of like Fat Tire’s weaker brother which makes for a really drinkable beer. Me likey.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Loft poured golden-copper. It had an ample, creamy, white head that lasted for the entire pint and left some lacing.
The aroma was lemony citrus.
It was medium bodied, and a little too bubbly. The taste was malt with some zingy citrus. It had a crisp, grassy, slightly bitter finish.
Overall, this was a very pleasing and refreshing beer. Definitely the best "lighter" beer I’ve had...a great summer drink!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour looks like honey with no head. Aroma is a nice balance of hops and citrus. Flavor is hops and a lemon lime combo.. The flavor dulls to almost nothing on the swallow and it leave a bitterness on the back of the throat. Ok I guess nothing to get excited about. Its something different.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pellucid darker amber pour. Light head of small white bubbles that leave quickly. Bread or biscuit, some wheat, lemons and other citrus fruits finely balanced with a nice malt backing. Hops dominate the flavors followed by biscuit and other malts. The citrus is a bit muted but still lingers throughout. Thin body, sharp palate and a bitter hop finish.
