3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Draught
Amber color. Good body structure, malty and well equilibrated by the hop. Quite a strong caramel character. The aroma is ordinary, maybe too light.
I would believe it's stronger than 5% ABV.
Probably the best beer I could find during this stay in Orlando.

Clear copper body topped by large off-white head. Aroma is pungent ringwood, earthy, herbal, some lemon. Taste is medium sweet, earthy, floral, ringwood, herbal, some lemon and orange. Finishes moderately bitter earthy, orange. Medium body. Pretty enjoyable. Surprised to discover that it's a wheat. I enjoyed this as a one-time beer, not sure how much I'd enjoy drinking several at a sitting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught in the terminal of the Orlando airport. This was the seasonal offering in the sampler I tried. Dark amber color with a thin off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel with some malt and spices. Not too rich in body, and I liked the balance. Malt character is balanced out by the hops and spices. The finish is smooth and malty as well. Pretty good.

12oz bottle found in the bargain bin for 99 cents. Bottle labeled best before J(une) 07 - no wonder why it was in the sale bin.

Tastes of caramel, citrus, and lighter sugary sweet. Some lacing left on the glass.
