Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 
N:  Wow, there’s a lot of vapor.  Reminds me of the fake leather seats of my family’s 1977 Toyota Corona on a hot day.  Freshly tanned leather

P:   Starts dull, then quickly heads into a warm minty rubber.  Oily sawdust. Balloon.  This is pleasant but a tad pedestrian.  The finish is bitter.  B-/B 
Fuji
 

N: Floral, fruity and sweet maltiness

P: Sour grapes, a bit of peat and wax

F: Medium finish with bitter citrus peel

 

Tasted blind. B-/B

 
Ries
 

n: Initial heather with honey comb and malt. Plenty of floral with hint of lemon oil.

t: Heavy and thick mouthfeel. Dense golden honey with light tobacco leaf. Nice oak influence, grass and heather make for a solid balance. Long honeysuckle finish.


A dessert of honey; nice and safe, but nothing to get excited about. [B.]

Medium yellow-gold color. Very crisp and clean on the nose that features brinyness and citrus. Can also smell the barley. I feel like the nose translates into the palate fairly nicely, but a little too much feel on this one. [3/24/13]
