StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
A golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong, slightly metallic aroma of hops and a touch of malt. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. The taste is dry, biscuity malt that is followed by a zesty tang of green hops, a touch herbal, but the metallic element is present again towards the end, which spoils the finish.

tgncc (3100) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2013
The aroma is grass, malt, very sweet. The appearance is gold/orange, white head. The flavor is grass, malt, sweet. The finish is light noble hops, sweetness lingering. Almost no hops. Very fat in body for the style. Not a huge fan of the style, but this is not bad. Maybe if this beer was fresher I would enjoy it more.

Bottle. Sour barley malt and grassy/herbal hops aroma. Golden yellow with large white head. Mildly sweet barley malt and slightly bitter grassy hops flavor. Nice - wish I could get it fresher though.
