3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub
I had some time to kill between sporting events so I spent it enjoying the atmosphere of one of my favorite spots in town. This was the lightest beer on the flight that afternoon so it went first. An excellent and drinkable table beer this is the sort of goto beer which every brewery should offer.
Aroma / Appearance - A transparent golden base and flecks of white head are light as I expected. Green tea, chamomile, and ginger ale are airy and soft like a cream soda.
Flavor / Palate - Light and fluid, the mouthfeel carries a soft bodied beer that fades quickly. It would be easy to drink a whole pint without realizing the fine textures of green tea and cream soda. The soft hops hang around like the last rays of sunlight. If not for the other beers I would have ordered more.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of crackers, apple, moderate noble hops and some chamomile. Appearance is well carbonated gold with foamy white head. Flavor is fruity up front with herbal/noble hop snappiness in the finish; the chamomile is ever-present, but subtle. Palate is soft and bubbly. Fantastic golden ale; what I imagine a really great Czech Lager would resemble.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a golden color with a moderate head. It has a sweetness to the nose of it that is reminiscent of a Belgian style, but the taste isn’t too sweet. It’s a very light beer, too.
