3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: gold-tinged straw under a surprisingly vibrant bread white head. Head fades rocky and patchy, leaving clumps of lace in its wake.
Nose: herbal and grassy with freshly baled hay and piles of mown grass drying in the sun. Lemon skin essence. Table crackers and bread crust. Key lime. Hop pellets and generic dried green herbs.
Palate: Italian bread, table crackers, and French rolls in the back. Grass, key lime, and herbs linger in my breath. Lemon and key lime zest along the edges. Medium weight. Sweet rolls in the middle.
Final Thoughts: not bad but not great – overall very forgetful. Worth trying once and that is about it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy deep gold with a leafy noble hop aroma and a touch of earthy English dustiness. Nice mellow flavor with a bit of cantaloupe and grassy noble English hops. Balanced and quaffable. A dash of lemon zest perhaps. Not shabby.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16.9 oz. bottle brought to our regular tasting, and poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangey color, with a modest & fleeting head of off white foam to a thin ring & film, and light spots of lacing. Although some esters & spice were present in the nose, it was heavily diacetyl, with a bit of vinegar, and a hint of candy. I did persist, but found a light body, low carbonation, light bitterness, and a generally washed out flavor. Felt bad for Chuck who had to wash all those glasses at once!
