2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (2003 or 2004) ... Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, tissue paper-like, white head. Good retention. Estery, phenolic, yeasty aroma dictates fruitcake, cinnamon, biscuit, clove, apple, pear, coriander and honey notes. Medium-bodied with an extremely drying mouthfeel. Fruity flavor is very low on residual sweetness and, but offers a tempered bitterness. Citric and moderately tart with a grassy note of clover. Tangy, Sahara-dry finish sucks all the moisture from my head. Over attenuated? Strange, interesting brew! Kudos go out to maniac for shipping the bottle my way!

Bottle from strykzone. Thanks! Very interesting beer. Pours a hazy godl with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, banana, honey, apple juice and malts. Flavor is yeasty, sweet, a tad spicy and a very small hop profile. I do believe this beer is way underrated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery in SLC. Dark orange and clear color with a large white head. Nose is sweet bananas and bubble gum with some artificial sugar and candy notes as well. Light and crisp, a bit of a sweet yeast bite present. Some bubble gum and soap with the banana flavor... watermelon and peaches as well. Artificially sweet and cloying. Unbalanced sweetness but still a commendable effort for keeping it at 4% ABV.
