3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is floral, lightly citrusy with notes of biscuit and toasted malts. Pours golden, decently lasting head and lace. The flavor is dry and biscuity, toasty, with mostly floral notes and light citrus. Dry and light, easy to drink. Decent, but not that interesting to me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Orange color with a white head. The nose is hoppy and fresh, lots of citrus pine notes and a light medicinal or lotiony malt note. The flavor is clean with more bitter hops and dry hops, but that lotiony thing isn’t going away and it adds a twang at the end of the finish. Good, but doesn’t build on you.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crisp blonde coloured body with a soapy, large, dense tan head that leaves an ugly lace. Aroma of light hops, light sugars, light malt, a touch of flowers, some jasmine and a minor amount of yeast. Light-bodied; Assertive fresh hops up front that don’t have any depth or body, a little sweetness behind and a very mild malty finish - very bland and unsupported. Aftertaste bland and clean with some floral notes, a tiny amount of hops and a little fresh fruit flavour. Overall, a pretty weak and mild beer - good for the size, but bad for the taste and quality of the beer. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at BevMo in Walnut Creek, California on 19-March-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 22-March-2011.
