2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 4/30/08. 6th sample from the brewpub. Hazy with a golden straw hue. White lacing head. Yeasty citrus and melons in the nose. Touch lemon/lime note. Bready and wheaty. Citrus. Ever so slight Crunchberry flavor. Muddled and a touch peppery. Too tart. Good hop presence, but unmelded with the yeast character.Just off.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… DLD’08… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great, tight, creamy retention. The restrained aroma is of earthy, piney and grapefruity PNW hops. Light-bodied, but creamy, with modest carbonation. Lots of citrus and pine bitterness flanking moderate toffee sweetness. Crisp, bitter, dry finish.

Hazy and toasty scented. Not a whole lot going on. Taste is definitely bready and toasty. Not a huge fan, grassy tasting. Meh.

I had originally ordered Piece for delivery but they told me they had the Jockey Full of Bourbon on tap so I ran down there to pick it up myself. Unfortunately, they lied and the only beer they had on tap that I hadn’t had was this one. Pours a cloudy blond with a nice white head. Aroma of lemon and some spices. Goes down easy, does almost taste like a wheat. Not a bad beer, but I was just so pumped to try the bourbon one :(

This was good but boring. A little cloudier than I expected. Pretty lemony, tastes sort of like a wheat bear. Not a whole lot of hops, but I guess thats the idea. This would be good if I was doing a marathon of drinking, but just not enough going on to excite me.

Poured a cloudy yellow color. Aroma of spices and banana. Tasted of some spices, and sweet malt, not much hops of any kind.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Piece: Clean light gold hue with a fading fizzy head. The aroma has notes of grains, biscuity malt, apple esters, grassy hops and a hint of soap. The taste is pretty much what I expected, mild pale malts and light-handed bitterness in this session ale. A bit musty tasting too. The mouth feel is sprite and light-bodied. A ho-hum ale, drinkable with pizza but nothing you need to go outta way to get.

Draft at Piece. Decent looking beer, yellow with a small but lasting foamy head. Nice malt profile is both light and sweet, delicate and grainy. Magnificent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Piece. Poured clear paler golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was soft with bready and honey notes accented by dusty lemon zest and floral hoppage.. pleasant. The flavor had more of the honey with grassy and lemon bitterness.. softer and well-balanced, but the sweetness was too focused on the honey.. bitterness was light. Lighter-bodied and very dry on the palate with a refreshing finish.
