2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange-yellow, small head, no lace. Malty aroma, a little yeast, and a little orange peel. Palate has a strange shortbread flavour, sweet malt, fruity hops, and a moderately bitter finish. Thin bodied overall, but I thought it was okay.

Deep amber color with a slight cloudyness. Fizzy with a short head. Somewhat fruity flavor that sours quickly.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours straw-yellow with little to no head. Neither hoppy nor malty in aroma or flavor. Thin, grassy, slightly cardboardy and uninspired. Dry, clean finish. Pleasant but forgettable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden with a quickly disappearing head. Nice hoppy aroma, but also some malty sweetness.Citrus. The initial taste is sweet, but there is some bitterness as well. Caramel and citrus. Short aftertaste and light body. Medium carbonated. Nice session beer, but not a lot of character.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden. A white head not lasting long at all. Aroma from grass and citrus. Flavor is little malty and sweet. Fruity but comes of bitter in the end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pale amber, vaguely hazy from the yeasty sediment. A very lively head, but unfortunately it collapses rather fast. Lovely floral, hoppy aroma. Weakly caramelish and sweetish. The aroma hops don’t leave much bitterness. A nice - and organic - experience. 290703

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is full of grassy hops, malt, and yeast. The appearance is golden and the head is small but persistent. The flavor is well balanced. The hops are refreshingly bitter without being overpowering. The malt is almost wheat like and the finish is slightly herbal. The palate is thin but it was not a problem for me with this beer. I like this.

Best to be enjoyed on a hot day

Nothing scarey or skunky in mine from Grapevine Market. Creamy gold color, fresh green grain in the nose. Might be more polychromatic to the tongue if it had a some good old fashioned man-made toxins in the mix. I dunno. Middle of the road ale that didn’t disappoint. Mine was fresh. Cool packaging earns extra points from me in appearance.
