2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Steamworks. Clear copper appearance with a thin head which leaves some lacing. Seems more like an IPA, with it’s distinct hoppy taste. Aftertaste was a little too rough for my liking. Overall an average that I would like to try again for a second opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: the foam waves a quick “hello” and then dashes underground into evening golden arms of wheat and cold amber.
Aroma: A neck of perfumes ringed with pine needles and ice. Bitter apples and unripened pears scowl from a distance. Paper wrapped doughy grain bread hums a wholesome tune beneath.
Taste: Only a tinge, or afterthought, of hop bitterness. There is a sweet, even numbing, tingle in the aftertaste preceded by orange slices powered in a thin layer of icing sugar. The orange “lemonizes” slightly, even grows a thin grapefruit rind skin. After twenty minutes smooth, if shy, pineapple slips into the picnic brunch.
Mouthfeel: Unfortunately the foundation is a bit waterlogged, though it does not detract from the aromatics and lilting sweet citrus taste. Carbonation is near non-existent, and yet no flatness ruins the feel.
Final Thoughts: Most memorable is the lightly electrifying, sugar tongue sparks from the aftertaste. The leather rimmed perfume-orange bouquet is also difficult to forget.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml can from Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in a goblet. Pours a reddish-golden hue with light, fine carbonation and a milky head, leaving thin lace rings. Nose proves light, bright, and fresh, with lemon, lime and grapefruit, whiffs of tropicals, and light buttery toast; on the tongue, the warm toasty elements emerge to match the pace of the soft citrus. A little thick, and the citrus lingers briefly. A pleasant and very accessible pale ale that feels a lot like an ISA in all aspects but its 5.2% ABV.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2016 Bottle @ home. Pours with a light orange colour, small white rocky head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of bread and cereal, slightly hoppy, with notes of herbs and grass; modern hops in a traditional style; good but a little faint. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, slightly sour, balanced and elegant. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. A good modern take on a traditional style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great beer. What I noticed was a distinguishing nose and a unique hoppy taste that I thought was lemony. Not too overpowering

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Goldig und klar. Geruch nach Melone. Wenig süß, dafür aber mundvoll. Sehr viel bitterer als sich 35 IBU lesen.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 ml bottle @ Timo A. BBE 18.04.2016.
Pours clear pale golden color with a smal head, interesting label graphic. Aroma is not that good, clove, soap, herbs and grass. Flavor follows the same lines with mild apricot and peach. Not very pleasant, moderately bitter with sweet fruity finish.
