4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy yellow with sturdy porous foam, redolent of lemons, limes, nutty cereals, and mint. Zesty as all get out. Clean. Sweetish, light honeyed taste mingling harmoniously with sharp, lemon-herbal bitterness. The bitter-leaning balance is so beautifully judged, full of oomph but so drinkable. Fuck man. I dunno. Seems like this is pretty much what it’s all about right here.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Honey and yeasty, with cookies and some grain. Cloudy honey color with some floaties. Light sweet fruity initial, smooth gentle maltiness, light hopping, and an fun and unusual bit of pepper in the finish. Thin body. Well balanced but fairly complex for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Bottle at the brewery. Grassy, herbal nose, some lemon, crackery malt, toast. Brilliant cloudy gold color with a fine, pillowy head. Crisp, brilliant body. Great hops, crackery malt, dry, peppery finish. Smooth, with low carbonation. Clean, dry, suffig. Lovely stuff. (Note: I drank a second bottle of this 12 days later back home in Japan and it was nothing like the same beer. Hops were almost gone, and it had generally degraded substantially!)

At the Franken Fest in Rome - Italy. On tap. Pours bright yellow, hazy with a medium and tick white cap. Nose: milled malts, chicken stable (I love this smell), bread. Mouth: ouh boy! Dry, frizzy and the closest a beer can come to bread. Leave on an island with a few kegs of this!
