Tap at Meridian Pint for $2 on their 2nd anniversary. Pours light cloudy token with small white foam. Nose is sweet apple juice and sugar. Taste is quite hoppy, resinous, oily, sugary. Fairly rich. Some soapy hop bitterness and heavy floral pollen and lavender. Palate is rich, biscuity. Pretty good stuff. Palate is a bit powdery and apple skin astringent. Not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rustico Alexandria. Standard version and an unfiltered keller version (cask) served in mini snifters side-by-side. Review for the standard version. Pours a clear straw-golden color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose has some nice herbal and floral hops atop a pilsner-malt base. Flavor is crisp and clean. Could use a bit more bitterness and hop character, but it’s still clean. Light crisp body. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp golden coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall white head. Aroma of fresh malt, light metal, a bit of sugars and a hint of dry grass. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent malt shows some depth with a hint of sweetness, a little yeast and a good dry hay character. Aftertaste shows a touch more sugars, a hint of bitterness from the malt and a little dry finish - nice. Overall, a nice beer, very refreshing with still strong hits of malt. Definitely worth trying if you can find it and it’s hot outside - a respectable beer! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Elisir Restaurant in Washington on 17-August-2012 for US$7.
