2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that settles quickly and leaves some very thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light cereal grains and light grassy hops with a slight hint of citrus. Taste is light malty sweetness with a hint of lemon ending with a light grassy hop bitterness followed up with some metallic notes. Light body with soft carbonation. Exceptional organic lager ... I think not ... ordinary ... Yes.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml green bottle. Gold colour. Faint white head, some lacing. Sweet malt nose with tiny hint of grass. Flavour starts with some sweet malts, moves into a metallic and grassy hop flavour rather quickly, grassy and haylike finish with minimal bitterness. Thin bodied, medium carbonation. Not that bad for a pale lager, but really not that interesting either.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Gold. There was a white head before I blinked. A lot going on in the aroma; grain, vegetable, biscuit and a touch of skunkiness although the green bottle was in a sealed box. Flavour takes all the fumbled promise of the aroma and assembles it into something worse. Flavour is jumbled, rough, harsh, sweet and unpleasant.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Yamaya in Kyoto. Cheap.
Cereal aroma. Bit of skunk too. Not too nice. Slightly darkened gold color, nice head. Sweet, metallic cereal flavor. Grainy and muddled. Lagging carbonation and mouthfeel. Not horrible, but useless.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & tupalev - my bottle, courtesy of pubstyle. Light clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of skunk, grain, and icing sugar - ick! Flavour is very metallic and harsh, extremely unpleasant. Thin body, watery finish. It’s beers like this (and the Amber) that give organic beers a bad name.

Bottle shared with Jerc, Hogtown Harry, GregClow, and Blankboy, courtesy of Greg. Oh boy, this one made the ale seem like a Westy. Light yellow, very light, small white head. Awful skunky grain aroma. Harsh taste - tinny, metallic, harsh, and watery. Thin. Terrible.
