swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2006
On tap @ Coles Buffalo, NY. Mild hop bitterness, Light gold in color, medium bodied & nothing too spectacular

DruncanVeasey (8239) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Classic oily hopsack nose a la Church End. That flowery, resiny hop/ honeyish- yeasty balance again. Very aromatically hoppy. A definite nibble of rose. Rolls around the mouth oozing bread, honey and floral hops. Great ’length’, as they say. Just the right parting bitterness. A very cheeky specimen.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with a dash of citrusy hops. Flavor is soft and malty ... burtonized water, perhaps? Light carbonation, malty flavor with a nice rounded citrusy hop finish. Not bad. Similar to the Wychewood brews I’ve had.

3.4
probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2006
500 mL bottle. App.: med-light amber, decent white, foamy head. Aroma: floral, sl. citrusy hops, lemon-limey. Palate: med.-low carbonation, med.-full body and somewhat creamy. Flav.: light hops, less citrusy than the nose (phew!), a bit of malt (crystal, cereal). Not bad overall.

3.4
Tranquillity (2413) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2006
Small bitterness in the flowery aroma. Very clear, orange colour. Thick foam. Complex bitterness which exaggerates itself in the finish. Flowers, nuts and grass. Yummy.

3.3
madsberg (11773) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2006
Bottled. Unclear. Golden coloured. Off white head. Aroma is grassy and light herbal. Some fruitsweetness and caramel notes balances the hops. Flavour is mildly floral and herbal. Some citric caramelnotes. Medium bodied. Medium bitter dry end. Good one.

3.2
kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 23, 2006
500mL bottle. Pours a clear, golden-yellow appearance; white head with good retention and lacing. Light, bittery lemon hop aroma. Crisp carbonation, slightly acidic, plenty of fresh, citrusy hop taste in the palate; medium mouthfeel, dominated by the bitterness; minerals and a touch of cotton candy; bitter and slightly dry on the finish.

3.2

3.6
voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Pours light copper with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lime and light caramel. Good balanced body, with a medium bitterness... Citrus hops combining with a simple light toasty sweet malt. Bitter finish.

3.3
larsga (7564) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2006
Huge offwhite creamy head shrinks quickly towards a copper body. Complex, harmonic aroma of floral hops, honey, rubber, and wet paper. It’s good, but there is some not so good mixed in. Taste is deep, flowery honey, with smoky, citric notes, and touches of paper. Aftertaste is dry papery malts. Slightly lacking in body. Not at all bad. (0.5l bottle.)
