2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Enjoyed on-tap @ Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, KY for $4. Tapped from a Creative Wooden Carved Tap Handle (they all are like this here) into a 16oz Pint Glass. One of the 11 Guest Taps offered.
Aroma- Very medium amount of grain and sweetness in the aroma. Little bit of hop but hardly can notice it.
Appearance- Received with a 1.5 finger head that is frothy and has good retention. Has a pale straw/golden body with good clarity. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Taste is very interesting... Starts grainy with light hops but then a buttery flavor comes around. Not sure where this is coming from. Finishes with a light bitterness level.
Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Slick, Wheaty, and finishes with light hops.
Overall Impression- This one was a nicely brewed wheat beer with good hops. I’m still trying to figure out where this buttery/slick mouthfeel came from? Apart from this, very drinkable and enjoyed! Not sure which style this would be considered.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop, wheat and small malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Country Boy. Country Boy guys thought this was off with too much diacetyl. I got a light almost pilsner wheat ale. Not too hoppy. Wheat dominant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at brewpub
Wrapping up the night with a fine pale ale this was the heaviest of the beers on tap. I hope they try another series in the future as this one was a good experiment. I may have to get down to the brewery in the near future and find out.
Aroma / Appearance - A transparent bronze body shimmers with a clear ring of head on top like an angelic fringe. Pine needles soaked in orange glaze contrast with a musty texture. The total experience is a bit like walkign through the woods on a wet winter afternoon.
Flavor / Palate - Hops immediately bite back. Pine needs on a glaze of lemon sorbet tickles the senses. Transitioning to a sharp finish it has a nice bitterness that sticks in the back of the throat. I look forward to visiting soon to see what else the guys in downtown Louisville are up to.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little more golden than Wiggity Eddy, this head leaves lots of lacing. Spicy hop aroma is noticeable and pleasant. Low carbonation and a distinct bitterness. Light mouthfeel leaves the palate bitter and dry.

Tap. Orange malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel hops flavor. Tasty beer - like the new trend of hoppy wheat beers and this one is very good.

Aroma of citrus, pineapple, caramel and nuts. Appearance is gold with white head. Flavor has a nice slightly sweet/nutty malt profile with a juicy citrus hop finish. Palate is bubbly and fluffy. Excellent.
