3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… South Florida Throwdown 2010… Hazy straw-colored lager with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is very, very hoppy – a seeming potpourri of varietals. Sorachi Ace isn’t one of them, but I’m picking up lemon peel, green apple and white pepper. Light-bodied with prickly carbonation. Nicely bittered and refreshing. Low sweetness. Finishes bitter, coarse and dry. Different. Thanks go out to DA for the bottle!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Despite the rather silly "too cool for a name" posturing here, this was pretty tasty. I actually had this pegged as a saison - it was spicy and a little sweet, plus some subtle lemony notes. Some white wine, some oh, I don’t know, I’m gonna call it pear, too. Nice stuff...Sampled at the 2010 pre-brewers jam tasting.

2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting. Cloudy straw yellow with whitish head. Aroma is grainy with some lemon and a hint of saltine cracker. Flavor is nice and dry with some hay and leather notes. A little bit of lemon comes out from time to time. Refreshing finish. Pretty good stuff.
