2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark orange. Medium head. Not so many bubbles. Like a flat lager spiced with stale belgian ale. Slightly acidy and fruity. Not really my cup of ale...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear, orange-golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. Earthy, fruity nose with notes of honeydew, grapefruit, dried pine needles and a hint of clove. Solid caramel malt flavor with more hop bitterness than the style usually dictates... Americanized, I think. Medium-bodied with a skim milk mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Lengthy, balanced, Novocaine-like, tongue-numbing finish. Excellent bitter! Cheers to marsiblursi for providing the bottle!

Bottle. Hazy amber whith a creamy with head. Fruity aroma with heavy floral and spicy hop aroma, with som hints of pine needles. Perhaps a little thin and too much carbonated. Assertive but pleasant bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Draught at SBWF 06. Red amber colour, creamy white head. Nice hop aroma. The flavour has some aroma hops, not overdone, but distinct and nice. These hops are a bit teaish. Very well-balanced bitter.
