3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy red/amber body, off-white head. Nice fresh hop aroma. Some dry yeasty crackers too. Flavor is a little more subdued as far as hops are concerned. Most toasty dark wheaty crackers. Pretty basic but decent pale ale. Yeah... actually, definitely well-made.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured an amber color with fluffy white head that dithered fast. Hoppy, Piney aroma. Flavors of hops, malt and a nice tea leaf or ginger/ginseng presence which seperates it from a lot of Pale Ales. Wouldn’t buy this one again, but it was definitely more than I expected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a wonderfully fruity beer with summit hops that embrace taste buds. I’d like to write more on this beer, but I’d rather just drink it…

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured a clear copper with a minimal amber head. Aromas of citrus, carmel and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp.Flavors of carmel and light citrus with a moderatly bitter finish. This beer smells MUCH better than it tastes!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Clear, golden, topped by a small beige head. The aroma starts with something reminiscent of cats pee, but is very soon replaced by peach, lots of grapefruit and some malt. It has a nice, but a bit one-dimentional flavor with lots of grapefruity bitterness. Medium body and a long, but weak finish. Even though it has a bit strange nose and a one-dimentional flavor I liked it. (070302)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Clear, red/amber color. Decent head, but short-lived. Well-considered mix of hops pleases the nose and the taste buds. The citrus tang complements the sweetness of the malt rather nicely, I really liked the W06, but this is very nearly as good. Widmer is not among my usual rotation, but I find myself looking forward to these late winter seasonals.
