3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was my first in this style, so bear with me if i get something wrong. Good label, looks just like freshly poured tea -- a woody red/green/brown. Interesting aroma -- some sugary notes, some graininess. Not a terribly deep flavor profile -- fairly dry with some citrus sweetness and acidity, zippy hopping. Light body, toast-grainy on the lips. Feeble carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from Fabeers in York. Amber bronze, almost no head, low fine natural condition and strangely free of haze if you discount the small fly that died happy in my glass. Initial sulphur snatch in the nose, turning to a lightly toasted yeastines with a solid background of hops. Dissapointingly insipid in the mouth with traces of caramel and malt plus a low hop note. Slight roastiness in the finish with a gentle hop and yeast bitterness. Give me a Mahrs Ungespundet Hefetrub over this any day.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Crierion, Leicester. Alarming red colour, but seemingly a lager - no head. Smells like blood orange. Taste is slightly less than I had anticipated. A thickish German pils taste, with extra metal and malt. A very lingering taste, thick, sharp and dryish. Not as different as I expected - just a souped up Pils really.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark and hazy brown. No head at all. Flavor is very bready and the hops are a presence. I can get a lot of orange peal in this brew. Very nice and a different style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark hazy blond with lots of carbonation and light lazing. Aroma is very malty with some biscuit & caramel with some diactyl notes. The flavor is lightly acidic and dry with some creamy, pilsner notes. Finishes malty and full-bodied. They must be doing decoction mashes on this guy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This would make a very tasty and very enjoyable session beer, that you could enjoy everyday and never get tired of. Just very clean crisp and smooth tasting, with some nice dry hopping up front, with a sweet kind of buttery malt taste in the back. Very smooth and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
lightly hazy flat copper color, head is nonexistent. malts are bready, with a thin overall body, but feels a little "spritzy" in the mouth. hops are most present in the finish. that was a piss=poor job of describing this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew poured a small head of fine to large sized off-white colored mostlt lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was carbonated hazy and light brown in color with bubbles suspended in the fluid portion of the brew. It had a malt hop dough aroma with some caramel notes to it and a good crisp smooth German mouth feel with a mild hop bite yet was on the thin side. The malt hop dough flavor had some mild brown beer notes to it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a cloudy reddish amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is very herbish. Initial flavor is earthy with light spices. Mouthfeel is fairly wheaty.   Finish has a vegetable hint to it.   Interesting style to say the least. Overall decent, but probably not one that I would have again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This beer poured a small sized off-white head that consisted of fine-medium sized bubbles that fully diminished. The body of this beer was cloudy with fast rising carbonation and a copper brown hue. The nose was malty, caramel, sweet, and fruity and citrus notes. The flavor was sweet, lightly bitter, malty and caramel. The mouthfeel was smooth and a somewhat watery and thin texture. This was a light bodied beer in my opinion.
