12oz bottle given to me by Dogbrick. Pours hazy copper with a medium off-white head. Grainy malt and caramel nose. Grainy malt flavor with some citrus and earthy hop character in the finish. Would like to try this one fresh before the hops go south.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours translucent golden, small white frothy head, spotty lacing, with mild carbonation. Grain/cereal nose, not much hop in there. Dirty up front, quite grainy, blech. Body and mouthfeel are medium, bordering on the watery side. At least if its not going to be very hoppy, it does have a nice malt backbone. Finish is a bit astringent.   Only a mild bitterness on the tip of the tongue exists.   NEXT!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Matt for the beer: Orangy amber hue with good frothy light brown head and good lace. Aroma hinted of buttered toast, piney and floral hops, mild fruit and spice. The taste starts smooth and sweet with nice malt presense. The finish added a touch of pine and bitterness, hint of spice as well. Overall, this is a quaffable brew that you can drink two or three of in a session.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of - I think - ImperialJohn. Quite a hazy orange-deep amber pour, huge lasting fizzy white head. Only modestly hoppy aroma (more light resin and some dry herbalness) - lush cereal grain though, very nice (7+). Taste is pretty meh - less grain, some alcohol, a bit of metal .... ehh. Farly thick, somewhat undercarbonated, a little harsh in the finish - half decent, would have it on draught.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orange-amber with a thin but foamy top; wispy aroma of a hop flower, the flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer. Well done. (#2816, 4/22/2007)
