      Yellow opaque. Thick dense head. Huge wheat malt aroma, with hints of bananas. Medium creamy body, mildly fizzy and Real Smooth. Big wheat malt flavor from start to finish. Just a hint of banana flavor, and maybe a little smoke. Reminds me of being there.

      Big chunks of yeast in this golden beer. Smells slightly phenolic, slightly sour. Malty, OK clove phenols. Thick-ish, maybe a little oxidized? Tastes old.

      Very dark red opaque, big but short-lived brown head. Dark caramel malt aroma, some chocolate...smells like a nice dark boiling wort! Treacly flavor with lots of hops. Long hoppy finish. Strong beer.

      Golden, very high carbonation, good head. Sweet, malty aroma. Sweet, malty, smoky. Nice balance, clean finish with a healthy bitterness. Carbonation is a little high for my taste. Their "Centenary Celebration Beer"...hence the name.
