2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a white, thick five-finger head that goes quickly leaving a good lace. Clear, light amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Nose is hoppy. Starts hoppy with some rusty overtones (cap is clean), finish is dry with hints of skunkiness, fortunately the aftertaste is shortlived. $1.25 for a 12oz bottle from RSVP Liquors Portland, Me.

Pale yellow color with large but quickly receding head. Strong yeast wheat aroma lightly fruity. Very smooth and light to drink but with excellent flavor. Perfect beer to go with Hot Wings!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12 oz bottle) Pale gold color, white head which holds pretty well, some lacing. Aroma slightly skunky. Flavor kind of nondescript, some breadiness, but also fairly grassy at finish. I’ll pass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Thick fluffy head tops the pale gold very clear body, producing a fair bit of lacing as it slowly recedes...light malt and honey, touch of herbal/grassy character in the nose....dry, fairly standard-issue body with some odd medicinal and metallic notes, seemingly more alcoholic and peppery than it obviously could be...finish rather thin, slightly bitter and grassy. Kinda interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2005 bottle. Light copper-gold, tending towards yellow, clear. Large white head recedes to cover. Aroma of muted pale malt, light vanilla and honey. No corn notes noted, no yeast presence. Flavor has a touch of caramel malt which adds a bit of an interesting twist. Mostly dry in flavor. Fluffy, medium-light body. Tastes like light thabouli (sp?), oily consistency on the finish, some olive oil notes, getting slightly sticky as it warms. Very odd, all told, methinks, but I didn’t mind it.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tastes like soap. Smells nice. Almost tastes as if it’s gone bad, kind of a stale taste to it. I probabally won’t drink this one again.
