3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap@the brewpub. Low offwhite head leaving fine laces. Body is opaque, greyish gold. Yeasty nose, with a scent of doughy malts, lemonade and grassy hops. Yeasty flavor as well. Crisp and dry malty with a light sweet undertone. Also a pleasant citric fruitiness, and some gentle bittering hops. Crisp in the mouth, lively body. Citrus-fruity, dry malty ending. Good stuff, with excellent quenching abilities.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a murky honeyish body with a medium sized thick white head that went away slowly. A fine full grainy nose, with some very light veggie notes. Light taste, nicely grainy maltiness surrounded by a slightly acidic hopiness. Light eggy notes. Refreshing, light, ok and the better of the two.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. The beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a huge fizzy white head that burns away slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma is equally hoppy and malty. Medium body with very lively carbonation that is almost like drinking foam, even after it settles for awhile. Flavors of grassy hops and sweet malt are fairly evenly balanced. The finish is mildly hoppy and lingers a bit. Slightly above average overall.
