Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense GBBF 09. A clear golden coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is quite fruity and poppy with oranges and lemons. The taste is citric and poppy again. Easy drinking but not very beery really. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Wasn’t too bad, but nothing really to talk about. Did not really enjoy the aftertaste too much. SudsMcDuff (8541) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2009

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Rerate Kind of musty, but some decent buttery notes redeem it. Original 3.1[/I} Believe it is now packaged as "Sunrye" - similar to the ESB now being called Amber Ale. Decent lacing head, cloudy appearance with a lot of sediment swirling around. Bit of a bubblegum, banana aroma to it. Treating this as a wheat beer - but I see now that it as considered a blond ale. Bit of a hard to pin down odd twang to the aftertaste - not unpleasant - just different. Flavor - very dry, bit of a hoppy undertone.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I am not a big fan of this brewer though I have had this beer a time or two over the years. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy medium yellow color with a very small white head that fades quickly. The aroma is a tangy dry grainy scent. The flavor is dry sour malts, light tangy grains and a mild rye flavor.

Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Crystal clear medium gold with scant off-white head. Not much nose: sweaty, maybe. Light body. Almost watery. Almost corny mid-palate; just a hint of rye sourness, but only enough to let you know that there’s a flavor here that you wouldn’t ordinarily expect, so...it kinda seems like an off note. Not much finish. Company says it "tastes like watered down grain alcohol. The aftertaste is like rubbing alcohol." TaktikMTL (8014) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2009
Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Shaw’s (Ellsworth, ME). Arôme: Légère odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est dorée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de pamplemousse et de céréales. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de seigle en arrière goût. (Rating #2743) Ernest (7890) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium
yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (dough),
note of DMS. Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic, unclean. Light to medium
body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nothing of value here...DMS in
the otherwise vacuous nose, and poorly balanced flavor profile (devoid
of malt) with a disturbing aftertaste. Thumbs down. Strykzone (7807) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Interesting beer. It reminded me of a hefe in that it had a lemony flavor and aroma and was unfiltered. It also offered some cloves and lemons in the flavor. It was quite smooth, crisp, and clean. A super summer beer.
