      Brown, hazy, big white head. Ginger aroma, nutmeg maybe. Good body, hoppy, same spices as aroma. A little too bitter, but not bad.

      Amber, moderate carbonation, nice head. Tettnang aroma. Good body, lots of hoppy caramel flavor. Not bad, but not as good as I remember it. There's a map of the constellation Sagittarius on the neck label...maybe it's a code for the bottling date?

      Nice amber, light carbonation, good head. Spicy green hop aroma. Fine body...bitter! Nice clean fresh-hop finish. Definitely big caramel flavor. Not quite balanced.
