3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Deep blond color, hazy, with creamy head. Some malt and hop aroma, a bit fruity, but lighter than expected. The mouthfeel is rather dry; the malt flavor has a grass and hay accent, some toffee; strong bitterness, with a lot of hop resins, but also a vegetables character; long and strong final.
Ok beer, but below expectations too much vegetable presence in the final.

Bottled 0,65l (bottle bought in Portland, OR)
Deep golden color, small white head. Bready malty, honeyish, a bit herbal aroma. Medium-bodied. Sticky leafy, grassy hoppyness with woody-piney notes. Lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Aroma was a bit off, but flavorwise a solid brew.

6% session beer, lol. Sure, if you’re a sumo. Golden-bronze colour. Toasty malt with a touch of apple. Berryish character, splash of bitterness and then there’s a dry, hoppy finish. Ok brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer is a slightly cloudy orange color with a medium rocky white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Grassy hops and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a slightly off-white head that fades over a clear golden body. Aroma is floral and herbal hoppiness, with honey and graham cracker. Taste is grainy and spicy/herbal hops with honey and maybe a touch of nearly roasted malt. Lively carbonation.

Bottle, shared with parksy. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange amber with a creamy vanilla head. Toasty and fruity aroma. Very toasty toffee flavours, citrus and conifer hops with a moderately bitter finish. Compared to Pyramid Fling, this had more tout. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a somewhat cloudy bright golden orange color with an inch-thick, rocky off-white head that leaves some lace in the Duvel tulip. Aroma of dry grains, toasted malts, fresh cut grass, toasted sugars, straw, and herbs. Flavor of grassy and floral hops, pale and sweet malts, faint soap, and limestone. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mineral mouthfeel. A little mouth-coating bitterness as well. Decent APA.
