3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are grain with citrus and sugar. Zesty and fresh. Flavours are light caramel malts with sweet, sugary grain. Dry and toasty with an almost champagne like character (almost). OK, if a bit too sweet for my personal taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 1pt. 9oz. euro brown bottle with a bottled/freshness date on the back label.
Made a good appearance, poured a golden hued orange copper with a foamy pale tannish head that settled into a thin foamy lacing with a small amount of sticking, moderate carbonation.
Had a sweet toasty, caramelized malt nose with a spicy herbalness in the background.
A crisp, creamy smooth light bodied mouth feel, good drinkability.
Toasted and caramelize malts, sweet tasting, a gentle crispiness from the malts, a spicy herbal hoppiness, quick and fleeting in it’s bitterness and a dry malty finish with a little herbal hop flavor lingering in the palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange gold, nice foamy head. the aroma is grainy, and I swear I get a salty, "ocean breeze" aroma, too. Some canned corn flavor, and a dry, prickly finish. Surprisingly refreshing.

Pours medium gold with a big white head. Bready aroma with a little grassiness and floral quality. Flavor starts with moderate maltiness, hoppy in the middle, and finishes dry. Nice balance. Smooth on the palate and quite drinkable. Good example of style.

Bottled version. Poured a clear light amber with a rather thick and lasting white head. Strong apple juice aroma is pleasing. Very malty and sweet tasting beer. Not incredibly rich or complex but sweet and enjoyable. Very solid for this type of thing.
