Hazy golden color with a small white head. Light malty aroma. flavor is a little better than tha aroma, nice caramel taste. Hoppy finish.

Once you get past the dodgy smell upon opening the bottle, which is a bit skunky, it settles into a hoppy fruity smell which reflects on the taste which is very crisp with a smooth aftertaste of fruit with a hint of metal. Plenty of carbonation in this one also. A nice ale. Serve cold.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Malty and tangy. Moderate carbonation. A bit lagerish overall. Dull.

Golden as expected. Malty aroma and very slightly fruity. Taste is pretty poor with little to say - a bit malty and a bit fruity. Another disapointing organic beer.

demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle: Aroma is grainy, bready, with some funky hops poking through on the backend. Appearance is a very cloudy orangish/golden with a almost nonexistant white head. Taste has got a nicfe mixture of light malt and slightly funky hops, and maybe some spice notes as well. Palate is medium to low carbonation, mouthfeel is somewhat sweet, and aftertaste of the hops texture. Overall, Decent stuff. I’d drink it again. Cheers!.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle. Pour was light golden with some yeasty fruitiness in the aroma. Body was light, slightly sweet, and thin. Decent bready malt character with no hop character. Decent brew.

obguthr (6826) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2010
Rich honey and hay nose with juniper undertones. Cloudy golden, thin head. Honey and barley flavor, somewhat metallic. Grassy finish, with a tinge of honey. Cask-like mouthfeel. Nicely hopped. Distinctive and enjoyable.

Bottle from Tesco. Mild tropical fruit / hoppy aroma. Clear golden colour. Metallic flavour with unpleasant aftertaste. Not great.
