      Package: draught

      Appearance (3)
      Yellow opaque. Thick dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Lemony, coriander.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Light body. Very lemony. Lingering citrus finish.
      Overall Impression (3)
      They've obviously changed this beer — for the better — since the last time I tried it. Now they call it a "Continental style wheat beer", but it's clearly a Wit. (And a very good one!)

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Golden-amber, good carbonation and head. No aroma. Big carbonation bite, bitter.

  • Light American Wheat Beer with Yeast

      Overall Impression (3)
      Yellow opaque, OK head. Not much aroma. Really clean beer. Wet, slightly sweet, finishes clean. Made with Canadian "honey" malt. Served with lemon, but I fished it out before it polluted the beer.

  • English-Style (Extra Special) Strong Bitter
    4.46% abv.
    • Date: October 1, 2004 (#5459)

      Appearance (3)
      Even brighter red than the Redwing.
      Aroma (3)
      Mild fruity hops.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Medium body, real smooth. Lots and lots of caramel malt. A little fruity, but nowhere near as hoppy as the other two.
