3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at Rogue Public House, Portland. Pours slightly cloudy gold with a lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is mild and floral. It’s flavor is herbal/medicinal with some honey. Quite spicy. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Too strange to be a regular drinker but worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, brewed at Issaquah Golden beer with greenish shine, and some white rim. Definitely chamomille nose, obvious but not overpowering, rather nice & inviting, honeyish. Gives a very strange - again honeyish - chamomille flavour. Very acceptable, spicey character. Light, springtime-like palate, if you catch my drift. Some slickness. Nice, original beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy light gold with no head. Overwhelming chamomille infusion with honey, medicinal in nature. Hoppy cold chamomille tea, fruity esters, like peach, with a bizarre mouthfeel, didnt care for it much. On tap at Rogue Ales Public House, SF, August 2005.

I really did not expect to like this one, and it is still not my favorite but it is very well made. A very big tea component, almost jasmine and saffron like. There is some nice honey in the malt and very light finish. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
An amber honey color, not dense looking, with an odd-colored, peachy, thin, fat-bubbled head. Aroma is very tea-like and the chamomile stands out. The malt aroma is honey-like. Very light on the palate but the chamomile, tea, and honey with peach-like notes show well then dissappear quickly and absolutely with just a touch of bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, Rogue Pub, San Francisco. Hazy Yellow, no head at all. Nice chamomile aroma. Wonderful herbal tea taste - it doesn’t look all that great, but it is. Light carbonation - could use just a little more. Excellent, refreshing, and tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma really is chamomile, with cactus peach, and that wood that pencils use. Strangest tasting beer I’ve ever taste, and I’m not sure if that’s bad or good. Other tastes besides chomomile are hard to seperate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2005 AIBA Sample. Cloudy yellow with small head. Ok this is going to sound crazy but the main aroma and flavour was coconut. It’s a subtle presence, a light taste but that’s what I felt. Actually quite good.

Hazy yellow-amber colour. Slightly flowery aroma with clean malts backing it up. Light character with soft chamomile notes and biscuity pale malts in the background.
