3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is grass, fruits and some yeast. Flavour is toffee, fruity hops as well as some slight earth and mild spices. Nice filling palate, but nothing special. Dries out your throat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark hazy amber color, steady white creamy head, lots of floating yeast particles. Toffeish, flowery hoppy aroma. Liquerish palate, nice whiskey fudge flavor with backing alcohol. Sweetish and light hoppy bitterish aftertaste. This is more solid and balanced than the other Mortals I’ve sampled.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
IPA-like golden bronze with just a thin veil of lacing. Seemed a little too transparent for the style.
Flowery, with raisins, the first thing that poped in our heads was DFH Raison d’être. I’m not crazy about this kind of aroma, it lacks something that I can’t put my finger on and comes off as bland.
Prickly carbonation, not much yeast action going on, hint of fruity sweetness and some hops in the finish to dry it out. I don’t know how fresh this bottle was or how it was handled, but it had a bit of a cardboard taste to it. A bit of a letdown.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy amber, long-lasting medium off-white head with lots of sediments. Suspicious butterscotch on the nose. Did I smell diacetyl? Taste has some fruity dessert and spicy-caramel candies. Some unpleasant fake-caramel and plastic-hops in the finale (diacetyl?). The beer was recent but it nonetheless felt like an aged beer in poor condition. Disappointing. Mortal indeed, on its last breath.

Bottled. Cookie dough aroma with a hint of citrus. Amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, spiced, light bitter. Thin, sticky and sparkling. Certainly not the best mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle. 03/2006). Just a bit hazy straw-gold. Big, white fluffy head that lasts all the way through. Lemon-pepper esters with just a tiny phenolic hint somewhere in the background. Tart, undoubtedly fromt he use of wheat malt. Medium bodied and relatively spritzy. Very nice mouthfeel. Finishes very dry and slightly bitter with final notes of lemon-rind.
