Like sex in a canoe. Itís ale-light The nose is nice, the favor is citrus bitter but there is very little of it. Over all a thin, unremarkable beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light amber/gold with a thick off-white head that fades quickly. Surprisingly hoppy aroma and taste. Flavor is soft and malty with a hop overtone and pleasantly bitter aftertaste. Not a bad golden ale at all.

a bit watery on the palate, the hops and bitterness do not seem to go well together. A tad spicy.

Bottle shared courtesy of DenverLogan. Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. I really didnít get too much our of the aromas and tastes. Some cardboard, maybe some malts and citrus. Thin body.

12 oz bottle from Woodmans on Gammon Road in Madison, WI (October 2006) drunk in mid-October at the parentsí house from a pint glass, bit above fridge temperature. Translucent to clear amber-gold color, bubbling action in the body, with a moderate smooth-bubbled off-white head that decays quickly....doughy, lightly spicy aroma, hints of pepper and oregano but mostly itís slushy ill-defined pale malts....vague dry grassy hops struggle futilely to find a presence amdist watery brackish malts....strong, somewhat artificial carbonation and heavy filtration lend to an unappelaing soda-like, metallic finish. OK I feel good at the 1.00 that went to charity for buying a 6er of this turkey, but I donít feel bad about leaving the other 5 bottles to my less-discerning parents to consume.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a nice clear gold, topped by a quarter inch or so of cream colored foam. Okay head retention, a little lacing. Some honey-sweet malt and mild fruit in the aroma.
Tasty but short-lived flavor - with honey, pear, and drier toasted malt. These give way to a nearly vapid finish and dull, lifeless mouthfeel. A hint of citrus hops in the aftertaste is, again, short-lived. Served chilled but not cold in a Belgian goblet.

Rather uneventful beer, but it was for a good cause so I tried it. And for that cause, I would buy more of it if it would help out the cause.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Citrus with hints of caramel aroma. Almost transparent deep yellow, nicely carbonated and bubbly, almost no head. Slight caramel flavor upfront with a nice smooth citrus finish. Thin dry almost earthy palate but surprisingly smooth.

Not much of a fan of this one; there is very little to react to within this bottle.
Appearance was very pale and clear, and looked more Bud Light than it did pale ale. There was no aroma at all. Flavor was also very faint; what there was reminded me a "honey lager" like Tyranena Three Blondeís or Sleemanís Honey Blonde, and these are not favorable comparisons. Some faint sweetness but no malt or hop character. Mouthfeel was unremarkable.
I would not recommend this beer.
I had a bottle of this at the New Orleans d.b.a.
