3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer pours with a thin white head that quickly breaks down. Lovely golden colour with the cloudy appearance one would expect from an unfiltered. Nice an light in the mouth with average carbonation. Tastes of soft grass, hint of ginger with a very mild hop tossed in for luck. Clean grainy aftertaste. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours translucent (cloudy) burnt yellow with some golden highlights; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: honey, orange-zest, fresh-grains, black pepper, and a yeasty funk. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: fresh cereal grains, pepper, orange, alcohol, and dried apricots. The palate is medium bodied, has medium carbonation (creamy mouth-feel), and medium spicy finish. Overall, a decent brew - nothing overly complex.
