      Overall Impression (2½)
      Hazy golden fizzy. Fruity...smells like berries. Biscuit flavor...like graham crackers. Some bitterness in start, gone by finish. Nice body. Tastes "backwards" somehow.

      Score: 15 points
      Overall Impression (2½)
      Golden. Good head. Heavy carbonation. Spicy hops and a biscuit aroma. "Very light," says the bartender. Not all that light...biscuit flavor is strongest, but balance is OK. Carbonation is OK...maybe a little high.
