argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2005
In 1989, when this beer was still known as Ballard Bitter, and I was almost 21, this was my first microbrew. I was hooked, and eagerly awaited the opportunity to try it again should it ever move back East. My how times have changed!

(draft) Lightly hazed straw body topped by a white head. Aroma is meidum sweet, grapefruit, light biscuit. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light biscuit, caramel. Light-medium body, some crispness. Good transition beer.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2009
A very subtle IPA. I had some on tap at Ri Ra in Burlington. Nice golden pour with a mild hop aroma. Flavor is quite sweet and the hops are, as I mentioned, subtle. A very tasty little brew.

bhensonb (11252) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Ripe apricot color. Hop, but not citrus, aroma. Hint of apricot flavor, prominent bitterness. Clean. Apricot followed by sweetness, finish is mildly bitter. Just a delight. Finish isn’t really dry, but seems to not be sweet either. Well balanced? Delightful.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2005
Yellow fizzy ale with white head, which laced the glass nicely. Light malty aroma with barely any hops. Malty beer, almost like a lager or a Keith’s, very crisp, but without any of the expected hops. Oily mouthfeel. Bottle.CNY Brewfest Feb. 5 2005.
