3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a gold color with a white head and no lace. The aroma is yeasty and slightly floral. The flavor is rather understated, somewhat fruity, a minor hint of hops that linger, and overall clean. The palate is refreshing. Overall, this is good at the table with chicken. There are better examples, but this one is OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a nice golden amber with a thick white head. Fruit and citrus on the nose. Light bodied. Banana, citrus fruits, and yeast on the tongue, along with a mild hint of hops. Dry hop finish. Not the best in its style, but it was still a refreshing beer.

Not very good. Pours a lovely golden color. Nose is really more like a lager than ale. Flavours reflect this (Heineken) but retain a slight barnyardness. Leather, and hay with lager yeast and tetternangs

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Did not care for this. Pale yellow body with brief white head. Musty, earthy aroma. Light bodied. Flavor had some sweetness but was otherwise just unpleasant. Bad.

Poured with a nice solid head over cloudy yellow. Musty honey aroma. Very banana-spiced flavor, with a hint of peppery spice. Crazy stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2004 Bright golden body and undulating, soft, snow white head. Aroma of yeasty esters, citrus and a hint of butterscotch. Honey flavor and sweetness, Czech hop bitterness, and some orange citrus tang. Medium body and syrupy palate. Nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer had a large sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body had a lot of lively/fizzy carbonation and it was transparent with a golden hue. The nose was lightly malty, sweet and fruity. The taste was sweet, somewhat malty, tart and somewhat flat with an aftertaste. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery, thin and dry. This was a light bodied beer with sparse lacing. This was a drinkable beer and after a few sips I could feel some alcohol effects.
