3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, flowery bouquet and white wine character. Bright sticky palate. Slightly tangy malty taste with a clean finish. I wish more of the aspects evident in the aroma showed through in the taste, but they didn’t.

331 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a plentiful fluffy white head. Fruity nose with hints of citrus and pepper. Medium body with an edgy dryness and a slight alcohol burn. Finish lingers into an every so slight sweetness as the dryness drifts away.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. pours light gold. Unimpressive aroma and flavor profile. I was expecting WAY more out of this beer. I taste malt, corn and yeast. heavy on the dry yeast. Not too bad, but I was looking for more all around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Fizzy, small, white head (quickly dissapates). Cloudy orange colored body. Very peppery/spicy aroma. Light yeast was also present but the pepperyness was a bit overwhelming. Light Aceticness to taste. Highly carbonated. Sediments were noticed at bottom of glass. Some alcohol warming noticed. Okay-too peppery!

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Bottle. Pours a hazy golden/amber with a small white head. Light aroma of malt with undertones of light hops. Flavor is of light spicy hops with just a hint of alcohol. Nice amount of carbonation with medium to full body. Very nice.
