3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Mugs Ale House. Pale amber gold with a thin head. Aroma is lightly malty and a little spicy. A touch of fresh herbal hoppiness as well. Reasonably crisp and light bodied, but there is a nice balance of pale malt, light spice and noble hops. A touch of light pear/berry esters character on the back. Nice lingering herbal hoppiness. Itís actually pretty solid on this night.

Sample at PCBF 08. Pours a lightly hazy brown with some golden notes and a smaller off white head. Floral sweet aroma, some rice, citrus notes and some bread. Flavor was pretty much the same with some moderate hop bitterness.

Cask at Barcade. Totally flat, with a vegetal and ricey aroma. Thin, watery, bland, and even harsh flavor. Cardboardy and overwhelmingly mediocre.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Cask @ Barcade] Poured a flat, murky brown color, no head or lace. Aroma of nuts, dough, rice, and some fruit. Taste was cardboard, with some dough, toffee, nuts, and a lightly bitter finish. This one was pretty bad.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask at Barcade. No head whatsoever. I dunno but I donít get much more than flat tangerine juice. Yeah itís a bit starchy but only because I know thereís wild rice in it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Barcade: Hazy orange pour with a sticky lacing. The aroma has some subtle anisette notes, hints of straw and a light apricot fruitiness in the soft hop presence. Mildly carbonated and smooth bodied. The flavor is light, but elegant. Has grainy malt hints upfront, followed by mildly sweet licorice suggestions and a soft apricot hop presence. The finish has a smooth bitterness. Really easy going and tasty stuff.
