bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange-amber color with 1 inch head that fades fast but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pine/spruce, yeast. Taste is piney/sprucy, fruity, citrus, some cereal qualities. Texture is thin and soapy. Light to moderate bitterness. This is a good session beer but a bit on the fruity side.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Stas'. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for buying it in Sydney, Thanks SIL for packing and delivering it from NYC. Clear gold, white film. Ripe apple, honey, molasses, some grain aroma. Sweet malty taste, lots of oxidation - tastes old. Medium body, fizzy, oxidized finish. Old.

On tap, schooner. Pours a pale straw gold with a thin white head. Aroma: Biscuity malt, mild citrus, pine notes. Taste: Citrus and biscuity malt flavours dominate the flavour balance. Not complex. A basic easy drinking beer. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness. All in all, a decent beer.

Tezminator (306) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2016
Mild aroma of grass and sweet stone fruit. Mild taste of citrus and pine notes as well as little bit of apricot. The finish is more lager than ale. I quite like this one.

2.5
NordicV (2542) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016
Gyllengul till bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av säd, jäst och lättare malttoner. Lättare gräsig beska tillkommer i smaken.

bigbish (715) - California, USA - MAR 15, 2016
An easy drinking ale, nothing to crazy. Kind of boring but smooth and easy to put back.
