SamGamgee's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. A bit yeasty and thick in the mouth, with a little sugary sweetness balancing a firm herbal an floral hop flavor finishing with a lasting bitterness. Some fruitiness that is more the yeast than hops, and shows a but of banana. Quite hazy. good but not as good of a hop and yeast combo as the last hoppy Belgian style ale I had from them. This one might be a touch too bitter as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMMillsy (1151) - Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Poured at RR Brewing. Pours bubbly and clear light golden, with - long retention on the creamy white head. Aroma of pears, yeast, banana, some hay. Flavor is grassy hops, sweet banana and pear background, a little honey, with a nicely crisp dry finish. Light body, medium plus carbonation and goes down pretty easy. Not bad.

HonkeyBra (3115) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Growler from the brewpub. Pours a bright golden color with a medium head that dissipates quickly. Big hoppy aroma with golden and pale malt backing. Hops are actually huge in the aroma, with mostly pine and resin notes coming through. Flavor is very hoppy and bitter for a belgian ale. Mild golden ale breadiness and belgian yeast presence shines through. Medium bodied, but the booze is well hidden.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2014
On tap at the Brewpub in February 2014. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of hay, apples, malt, bread, yeast and some light funk. Fairly dry and hoppy finish.

Sampler at the brewery- Clear golden with small head. Spices, tastes like it has wheat, odd. Good though.
