Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Nice dark amber color,medium sized off white head that has a short life and fades to leave little behind.The aroma was malty and hoppy with a bit of a fruity side coming through.The flavor was fairly decent,malty upfront with a decent citrus side coming through as it warms up and the hops showing up in the middle and end.Over all it’s particularly well balanced but still manages to be kind of pleasant in a way,and might be worth a second go around just to see if it holds up or more flavors reveal them self.

Inflorescent nose with some doughy citrus; malty front end with some phenol notes, fruity and hoppy finish, somewhat harsh; slightly astringent and tangy finish.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Sweet strawberries in the aroma. Orange amber in color with a quickly dissipating white head. Lemon zesty hoppiness balanced with some biscuity malt, slight toffee, and some melons and berries. Sort of bland mouthfeel and a slight lingering bitterness. A competent beer, but not outstanding. Praise, of course, to André.

pinkzambia (1921) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Bottle: I loved what was at the top of the nose on this one - what seemed to be something like nutmeg & cinnamon. Pours a light copper color with a hazy appearance. the head was mostly diminishing with a spare lacing. Light toffe malts with an average amount of hops yielding a grapefruit taste. Because of the light body, thin texture and lively carbonation, it is pretty refreshing. Better than most other pale ales I have tried.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draught. Deep golden amber. Half-inch head is dense and impressively long-lived. Playful nose of perfume, pineapple, and a touch of grape. Flavor of rye crackers; also woody, scotch-like, and traces of floral sweetness. Earthy, peppery bitterness. With time, the beer becomes sweeter, revealing scents of citron and sauvignon blanc, and some orange zest on the tongue. Fascinating. Palate is full, round, and smooth. Very interesting, compex beer. Delicious in a way that I don’t expect everbody would appreciate.
