hopscotch (8549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Bottle... GSRARO Throwdown... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. Soapy, tangy, herbal nose. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is moderately sweet and offers up pale grains and herbs. Lengthy, lightly bitter, bland finish. I love good absinthe, but this beer just doesn’t work for met. A cool one to try, though. Thanks to SoLan for bringing this beer to the Throwdown!

PhillyBeer2112 (2496) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Pale yellow. Fresh fruit and a weird herbal nose. Funky herbal and minty traits. Not very bitter surprisingly, with the wormwood in there.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a semi hazy yellow color with a small white oily head and some lacing. Nose is thistle, faint clove, and plastic. Taste is lemon, creme, and cereal grains. Mouthfeel is thin yet fizzy and the finish length is on the short side.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy golden body and a smallish white head that stays. Aroma is yeasty with light cinnamon, corn, earthy spices and a bit of bready-ness. Taste is lightly metallic with corn, citrus and plastic phenols. Sort of an herbal astringency as well in the finish. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel.
