2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a hint of plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly drinkable and a fair sight better than expected...hops are plenty apparent in the nose and although the bitterness never picks up enough in the finish, it’s clean enough to drink without fear.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy golden liquid with a tall somewhat rocky white head. Mild aromas akin to tomato juice that has set in the can too long, along with sweet potatoes and sorghum. Chalky malts befall the palate. Light fruit and grass flavors join in the mix. Gets sweeter as it warms and adds a herbal component. If anyone wants to complain about an anniversary brew they should try this.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
09.11.05 500ml bottle. Very pale, yellow-gold color with a white hue, it’s what a wit would look like if it was filtered clear. The head is a tall, white, rocky thing of lasting suds and clumpy white islands; lacy. Very faint aromas, a bit mineral, touches of lemongrass. Extremely sweet stuff for the style, a tangy bite from middle to back, lots of hay.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Interesting "anniversary beer." Pale yellow with a film for a head that yet manages to lace the glass each swallow, this has a faint, sweet grassy aroma with a hint of dirty hops. Thin-bodied, It has a sweet flavor with a bitter, tinny finish. But it’s very hot today, so I’ll drink anything.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-bodied with a huge white head that became a scummy film and left scummy lace. Aromas held light herbal hops, bread dough and hay with overall sweetness and metallic notes. Full flavored yet medium-bodied, the taste started moderately bitter and finished moderately sweet. It was a better taste than I had anticipated.
