      Score: 15 points
      Appearance (3)
      Translucently hazy, amber color. Massive head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Huge fresh citrusy hops. Tangerine juice.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Intensely hoppy, fruity...dare I say juicy? Medium body, slick texture from all the haze. Sweet background but not all that malty. Fairly bitter, but it doesn't last.
      Overall Impression (1½)
      It's all about the "juiciness", with nothing else for balance.

      Appearance (2½)
      Golden. Some haze. Foamy, short-lived head.
      Aroma (3)
      Floral and earthy. Nice bready malt.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Medium body, moderate carbonation. Big bready, mildly toasty malt up front, with floral hops coming though later. Low-medium bitterness. A little sweet for an Export, but not overly so.
      Overall Impression (2)
      Pretty good beer.

      Appearance (3)
      Bright mahogany. Moderate head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Roasty. Hints of dark fruit and malt.
      Mouthfeel (6)
      Light-medium body, fairly fizzy. Roasty, mild malt. Oddly phenolic, sort of a peppery-medicinal note.
