      Overall Impression (2½)
      Golden, hazy, no head. Very sweet, very malty aroma. Medium body. Sweet and malty. Some graininess, some herbal hops. Very very low carbonation - damn near flat. Hints of spiciness and fruity esters, but the lack of carbonation really hurts the complexity.

      Light body, moderate carbonation. Lots and lots of raspberry flavor. Reasonably tart, not sweet at all. Clean fruity finish.
