10/23/08 On draught at the Pied Piper, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is slightly pnw hop forward, caramel sweet, with great balance. Appearance is clear gold with a medium maintained white head . Flavor is very well balanced and somewhat blended between floral & moderate bittering characteristics, but flora forward. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with a medium/high carb texture. Overall, simple in it’s presentation, but the balancing makes this above average. j12601 (13091) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2010

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Rerate: Good, upon multiple visits. Recalibration is necessary in the palate and appearance scores. Original: At the Brick in DC. Great and hoppy, but not quite unidimensional. Aroma: some grapefruit. Flavor begins to get balanced after some settling in. Almost creamy -- nice palate. Speakeasy has a ’house character’, methinks.

Honey colored. Nose has some citrus/floral characteristics.Creamy palate which I wasnt expecting but not not full bodied. Nice balance. Not a hop monster like Big Daddy. ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - OCT 30, 2002

Draught. Crisp and hoppy aroma, kind of like Pilsner Urquell in that regard, only hoppier. Small, white head; mostly diminishing. Clear yellow in color. Relatively hoppy flavor; kind of blah otherwise. Unspectacular. Still, a good session beer and not insulting. Great, bready finish with good hops. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2003
The beer as it sets in my glass a translucent amber with a head the size of Texas, semi-creamy in texture and a beauteous light tan in color with the lace a thick and sticky blanket to cover the glass. Floral tones dominate this malt sweet nose, also crisp and fresh like a morning rain, start is sweet and rich in malt with the top moderate in body. The finish is mildly acidic, the hops delectable and spicy, clean and crisp aftertaste and a fine drinking beer from a favorite brewery, hope to be there in February to sample some of their fine beers on tap, been at least a lustrum P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Wonderful looking orange color with a light creamy pillow head. Lots of citrus, and a light hop tang. Nice
