3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy nose with some lemon and grass. Taste is very peppery, slightly woody with a dying finish. Like the other versions, the yeast is overwhelming the hops, perhaps moreso here.

2.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice light golden color with a white head with nice staying power. Lace rings on the way down. The nose is definitely pretty interesting, with some light caramel and bread notes alongside a bit of citrus and grass. Some floral aspects as well. The taste features more generic malt and less of the more interesting hop aromas. Feel is nice--fairly light body and somewhat dry. Drinks quite well and I like the concept.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BT. Pours a medium bright copper with a thin head. Aroma is herbal flowery hops which start out good but there is diacetyl especially as it warms, moderate Belgian spicy yeast character as well. Flavor is bready, creamy malt, toast, light butter in the middle, then grassy and a big bitterness in the end that is slightly harsh. Getting past the butter, it is actually not that bad- still lots of fresh german hops which I like.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap ay Blind Tiger: Pours a bright golden with a thin but dense white head. Simple aroma- some doughy Belgian pale malts, hint of citrus and a huge chalky phenol presence. Nice fluffy mouthfeel with a very dry phenolic flavor. Slightly bubblegummy fore leading to chalky drier phenols and a long dry noble hop spiciness. Simple and solid, but one dimensional.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Brewery: Aroma of diacetyl, grain, and husk. Poured pale amber/pale yellow in color with a tiny, dense, white head that disappeared except for a film on top of the beer and around the edges. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of diacetyl, hops, grain, slight spice, slight nuts, and slight toasting. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Diacetyl, hop, nut, and slight toasted finish is a tad dry. Too buttery!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20100718 Tap at brewpub. Hazed, medium amber with a lasting, rocky, khaki froth. Aroma was caramel and yeast, quite bready, with some peppery hay notes. Medium to light bodied but with a resinous stickiness and nice finishing grassy hop bite. Lingering pith, pepper. Quite nice, clean stuff that would make a pleasant everyday session beer to have on tap at home.
