Bottle foamed over upon opening: Pours a hazy effervescent golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Sweet pale malty nose has some floral character and spices. Starts with a mild pale malty sweetness and some light grainy notes with a touch of bitter earthy spices and a crisp finish. A pretty interesting and well-balanced brew.

Thanks SoLan! Aroma is hoppy and spicy with the flavor being grassy and herbal. Lots of citrus and herbs. Light mouthfeel with a bitter finish. smith4498 (3670) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle shared by SoLan. Pours a hazy straw color with off white head. Mostly floral aroma with some spices. Light hoppy flavor, slightly sweet, some fruit. Light body with fizzy mouthfeel. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Pale gold in color and slightly hazy with a medium sized whited head. Aroma is of apple, brown sugar, light hops and sweet malts. Taste is of malt, grain, spices, and lemon zest. hopscotch (11180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Bottle... GSRARO Throwdown... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. Soapy, tangy, herbal nose. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is moderately sweet and offers up pale grains and herbs. Lengthy, lightly bitter, bland finish. I love good absinthe, but this beer just doesn’t work for met. A cool one to try, though. Thanks to SoLan for bringing this beer to the Throwdown!

Pale yellow. Fresh fruit and a weird herbal nose. Funky herbal and minty traits. Not very bitter surprisingly, with the wormwood in there. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2009
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of florals, citrus, pepper, absinthe, grassy, and toasted chestnuts. Flavor of florals, lemon, light butter, banana, and pepper. ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a semi hazy yellow color with a small white oily head and some lacing. Nose is thistle, faint clove, and plastic. Taste is lemon, creme, and cereal grains. Mouthfeel is thin yet fizzy and the finish length is on the short side. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2009
