3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Dunedin, early 2005. Hazy deep yellow pour, bright and dense white head. Tastes like a twisted take on a holiday beer Sam Adams would throw into a mixed pack, not a compliment. Pleasant enough aroma of chamomile, not much else going on in the nose. Initial taste is akin to a green tea with the aforementioned herb blended with sweet malts. Flavor quickly dwindles to leave a light malt structure on the tongue and a very uninspired finish, short and sweet. Weird, this could be a killer beer, but not with this recipe.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Pours a cloudy off greyish/yellow sort of color, nice white head. I loved this, I didn’t really know what chamomile tasted like but now I do and it taste great. It had a big spicy very pumpkin like taste in it, I got pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon, mixed with the spicy very different tasting fruitiness the chamomile gave, just an awesome beer why don’t they make this all the time.

GABF ’04 Golden in color with a hazy appearance and a small white head. Odd aroma of herb and spices, chamomile?. Like drinking a sweet tea more than a beer.

Really odd, but in a good way. Tastes like herbal tea that rides on a low profile malty ale. Lacks any real punch, but it is definitely a beer worth trying.

Enjoyed at the Dunedin Brewery
I am one who loves herbal tea… I love beer… making this a rather nice mix for me!
The aroma and flavor hint of a light wheat based ale, decent bready maltyness but the herbal flavors of chamomile evoke memories of sipping late night tea movie watching in my bathrobe. The chamomile brings a most unique and distinct characteristic to this brew… A Very Nice Offering!

The best traditional UK beer that I have had. The chamomile taste is very much evident, but it is a soft flavor so it does not become cloying. Chamomile is also a relaxing herb, this might make a good bedtime sipper. From Florida’s best brewery, by far!

The bartender told me this was an experimental chamomile beer based on their lowland wheat. Aroma was straight up chamomilel. Taste was initially dry w/ chamomile. Later on some sweet malts and hops showed themsleves. Not bad. Chamomile beer isn’t a terrible idea, and with a little tweaking this could be very good.
