3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 Certainly a strange one. Has a cloudy light gold color with very little head. The aroma is peaches and a slight lemon. The flavors are initially surprisingly sour with a lemon drop quality. A friend agreed that it tasted like hard lemon candy. Also has a touch of bubblegum at the end. Interesting, but not particularly impressive. Had this agian, similar experience, but a little less of the sour candy character. Still, nothing special.

I can see why this is not considerd an Alt - no real Alt qualities. Light orange, hazy appearance, thick, clumpy white head. Aroma is very yeasty and slightly corny. Yeast falvor is prominant and dominant. Decent mouthfeel. Slighlty disappointed.

Golden, with a white head.
Bready malt nose with soft apricot hints.
Biscuity malt flavor, grassy hops with a solid bitter kick.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light hazy golden yellow pour. Low head amount on the pour. Smell is of heavy fruit. Citrus pours out in the smell. Taste is citrusy and a little bitter. Smooth after taste with a great feel on the palate. Little yeasty for me, but a good beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottle is the one with the Green label with ORGANIC across the top. Clear golden, small white head. Slight grassy scent, probably more there but my nose is a bit stuffy tonight. Slight grain/toast flavor with a crisp hop follow. Reminds me of a Kolsch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with an unusual tart, citrusy (pineapple), crackery aroma reminiscent of Piraat. Flavor continues in much the same fashion with biscuity, fruity malt and citrusy, grassy hops. The grassy hops really take control of the finish. The body is a clear golden color with a thin off-white head. Not bad at all.

(Bootle) Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma of yeast, wet grass, and hops. Flavor of hops, dark fruit, and yeast.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color with a medium white head. The aroma and flavor were lemony, grassy, sweet, with some hops bitterness at the end. Soft, small bubble feel. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one pours with good head that diminished quickly.
The aroma has a mild fruitiness, German hops/yeast apparent;
Color: a mirky straw, a bit cloudy.
Body: fairly light and thin;
Flavor: hoppy, lingering dryness, perfumy; astringent and fairly bitter; metallic. Fairly unbalanced, too bitter for me.
Generally not at all impressed with this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a two-fingered white head that fades slowly and leaves some lace. Low carbonation. Slightly cloudy amber color but no chunky bits. Nose is slightly hoppy. Starts with a hoppy dryness and leaves with an aftertaste that has a slight bitterness. To be honest I find it boring. Light bodied. $3.89 for a 500ml bottle.
