The head is medium. It smells fruity, peach, melon, hoppy, honey, great. The taste is more boring, flat-malty, hoppy, watery, bit bitter. Aroma top, taste flop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 03/2014. Pours clear golden in color with a thin
white head. Grassy bitter hops, sharp piney notes and forrest in
aroma. Sneezing effect here in this. Bitter grassy hops in taste,
some sweet maltyness as well. Buttery and notes of hay also. A bit
like a hybrid between an IPA and Dortmunder Helles. Grassy, sweet
buttery finish. Okay, perhaps more grassy though, but with that slight burnt grainy feeling though.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy, pastel yellow and still. Head off the pour holds; snow-white and daubs the glass well. Strong, dried herb and butter note atop hints of fresh baked bread, honey and almonds. Bready, sweet and a little cloying on the palate - OK itís over date, but this drinks like itís a year over date. Light bitterness is overdone by the yeasty notes. Body is light but it sits heavy in the stomach. Not much else. Forgettable. (33cL, BBE 04/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)
