3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 This beer rocks.
This beer so desperately wants to be BASS, but comes up just a bit short in almost every category. Still, an excellent blond ale. Try one... try six, I hear the business end of Redhook isn't doing so well right now.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from a trade...finally decided to open it as my last beer for the weekend. Amberish pour with a small white head. Aroma is a fair balance of yeast, malt and some hops. Flavor has some grain, yeast, malt and slight hops. Not bad but fairly boring.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught version. Golden colored with a medium head that lasted fairly long, also lively carbonation. Sweet yeasty/citrusy aroma that bordered on a German Wheat. Light and refreshing if a little on the sweet side. I did enjoy this one somewhat, but mostly because I got it on tap. Iím not sure how well this would translate to a bottle.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap, Pour 24, Las Vegas, Nevada. Dusty yellow with a scant white halo. Heavy diacetyl aroma with underlying hop greenery and..banana? Fizzy and brain-chillingly cold with notes of lemon jelly, biscuit and butter. Some orange and lychee on the belch. Not loved or looked after. Probably much better than this.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a fairly strong note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. DMS-laden aroma with a dirty aftertaste, what more could you ask for?

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Pours crystal clear medium amber, almost indistinguishable in appearance and aroma from the Sun Rye. Scant white head. Neutral nose, very light body and attack--soft carb, and a sweet, almost corny body. No finish. Not much of a start or a middle, either, come to think of it.
