2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold pour with 2-finger white head. Aroma was of heavy noble hops, citrus, some honey, malt, and fruit. Not a bad aroma. The flavor was a letdown after sniffing this one. I got some hopcit and slight fruit plus some phenols. Watery palate. Buying this one made me feel good, but drinking it did not.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from the Party Sampler variety 12-pack. Thin white head, nice hazyish dark orange color. Not much strength in the aroma, tastes sort of watered down, although this does make it quite refreshing and drinkable. Mild hops, almost a yeasty lagery taste. Carbonation is a bit too soft. If this does have character, it’s too shy to be noticed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden amber, moderate white head. Soft floral and fruity hop aroma, perhaps lychee. Perfectly balanced clean malts and mild aromatic hops-- nice for its simple drinkability. I actually thought this was an american pale ale rather than a golden/blond.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden beer, quite hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite wheaty, light orange peel with some light berryish fruitiness in back. There is also some sweet nuttiness that is a bit surprising is such a pale beer. Flavour is a bit butterscotchy which is probably where the nutty aroma is coming from. Watery palate and moderate bitterness iwth a lingering orange peel/diacetyl flavour. It’s a pretty boring brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle tried at a few places around New Orleans- not hard to find at all when it’s in season. Pours a clear pale yellow gold with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, fresh hops, citrus, and grass. Flavor follows suit, with a fresh, crisp character. Light bodied, with a good carbonation snap. Light, easy drinking, sessionable, and just fine on a hot New Orleans afternoon in May.
