3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was an odd beer, but one that I actually enjoyed. Poured to a golden color with minimal head, and had no distinct aroma or flavor that I could identify. On the other hand, there was nothing I disliked abvout this beer. It is one of the first I’ve rated that was just a good drinking beer, with little distinguishing features...neither good nor bad. This would make a good session beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pleasing lemony hop aroma, lightly soapy, weak bready malts. Off gold with minimal head and carbonation. A spike of hop flavors up front doesn’t do much, quickly rounding into a vague, blandish sweetness. Finish begins as a tingle of carbonation, a light dab of hops and then nothing at all. Overally pretty flavorless.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Very light spotty lacing. Has a grassy hop aroma. Flavor is mild citrus hop but the bitterness really comes through. Light to medium body. Not bad. Worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold, with a thick foamy head that lasts through the glass. The aroma is clearly hops, hops and hops, with a piney citrus aroma. The medium body is dry with a clean finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear bright gold. Fizzy. Two-finger cream-colored dense head. Very lacy. Grassy and lightly bitter aroma.
Taste is light grassy malt with a mild but interesting hop finish. Light, crisp and that’s about it. A non-descript golden ale. However it tastes good and drinks easy. a good summer beer, maybe even a gateway beer for some Bud drinking friends at the summer barbeque.

Pretty boring. The hops are there, but they are very one dimensional. Skip it.
