1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Canned. Named Saxon. Golden colour, poor head.
Light sugary and dusty aroma. Dry, papery mouthfeel. No malt character at all, the only lively thing here is the Co2.

Can. Pale golden colour with a somewhat stable white head. Sourish metallic aroma with rubber and faint hints of malt. Maybe also a scent of raspberries. Malty, light sourish flavour with a sharp metallic taste. Rubbish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Saxon 4.1] Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasty dough, maybe some toffee, and light citrus. Clean, crisp taste of more toffee, somewhat sweet (maybe corn), with very low bitterness. No offensive flavors, this is a nice thirst quencher. Thanks Craig for picking this up at the 12 annual International Celiac Disease symposium in NYC.
