Leicht säuerlicher Apfelgeruch. Milder Antrunk, leicht getreidig, säuerlich. Angedeutet hopfig, dies wirkt aber ziemlich billig. Erfrischend, im Abgang getreidiger und plörriger.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single bottle purchased from Silver Springs Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 02/28/2011. Colour: Dark yellow with medium height but quickly fading and spotty head. Nose: Pear and apricot immediately, yeast develops and then more fruit. Honey late. Taste: Light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Delicate and quiet. Some vanilla notes float about, and even a trace of green olive...but other then that - characterliss. Decent nose led to nothing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear medium yellow with a short, fizzy, white head rapidly diminishing. The aroma is malty sweet with notes of grain and toffee. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. Not a lot of taste, but there is some bread and corn. Finishes dry. Not terribly offensive, but not a lot to this beer.
