2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown. Very pale clear yellow, does not look like an unfiltered beer. More weak and watery than a keller ought to be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden; refined hop aroma; biscuity malts underneath honeyish, floral hops (Mt Hood influence); smooth palate, crisp finish. Simple but effective.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: This one pours a fairly clear straw color with a finger of white head and some sticky lacing.
S: Quite an impressive nose. Lots of hops, surprisingly citrusy, but there’s nice spiciness and floral quality to them as well. Sweet bread and toffee make up the malt component of the beer.
T: The flavor is good, but not quite as nice as the nose. Sweet fruits followed by grassy and bitter hops. Quite herbal with minimal earthy qualities to it. A little bit of citrus, particularly of the peel variety.
M: Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation.
D: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The nose was quite nice, but the flavor wasn’t half bad either.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light hop aroma; seems fruity. Brassy gold color with a white head that sticks around. A light apricot or nectarine aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Carbonation is smooth and mild. Starts with sweet fruit. A bit thin bodied. Perhaps both floral and fruit hop. The finish is a bit astringent, and well balanced with light sweet and light bitter. This could pass for a pale ale.

Watery light-medium body -- limited crispness but nicely drinkable. This is nothing like the beer I remember drinking in the past, and I liked the previous version. (5/3/6/3/11)
(1-3-03) Hazy golden body with minimal head. Aroma is lemony tart, some German and floral hoppiness, and undertone of malt. Taste is German hoppy and lemony, very bitter aftertaste. Medium body and crisp. (6/4/6/4/13)
