Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Old cleaned up notes: Pours gold and hazy with a white head. Smells of roses, earthy, and citrussy with some yeastiness. Tastes earthy and lightly bitter with a citrussy finish. An easy drinker.

Cottrell (72) - Connecticut, USA - APR 30, 2005
Nothing but goldings? Very fine. Served in a standard pint, a light, slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly sweet grain, and some wonderful earthy goldings dominating the nose, very appetizing. Flavor starts lightly sweet grain, then turns mildly bitter with some great earthy and spicy hop character. Finishes very clean and crisp. A very quaffable brew, had I more time on my hands, I could of thrown another 2 or 3 back.

DYCSoccer17 (3590) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
Draught at brewpub. Citrusy lemon notes in the nose. Quite a faint aroma. Moderately hazy gold color with a white head. Could stand to be darker. Lemon-citrus to start-similar to a weiss. Turns malty, smooth. Finishes bitter with a metallic character. Reminds me more of a hefe.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2005
Perfumey floral hop nose. Hazy yellow-gold coloured body with low white head that recedes to ring. Very grainy malts with somewhat vegetal hop flavour. Medium-light body with low carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 31, 2005
New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #42. Small tap sample at the brewpub. Bit of dark, spicy fruit in the nose...odd light golden color, hazy (unfiltered?)...relatively bland, slightly fruity body, watery...bit sour and off-tasting.

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Surprisingly pale hazy golden. Mellow floral golding hops, mildly malty. Quite soapy hop naturel. That aspect seems to be boosted by the husky malts. Surprisingly not very bitter. Creamy texture with filling soft bubbles Not too authentic for sure and unfortunately not particularly great in its stand outs.

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
This is the palest bitter ever, not to style at all also in its near-total lack of malt sweetness...Nose recalls a nicely-hopped pils though, haystacks and subtle malt husks...Mouthfeel is at once creamy and dry and facilitates quaffing...
