3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piney, citrus hops with a grassiness to it on the nose. Slightly hazy, dark golden color, bordering on copper. A nice shot of grass that finishes dry. Malt is hidden, playing a supporting role in the middle palate. A nice balance of body and carbonation. Good pale - enough flavor for the afficionados but still sessionable.

Good head on it, and a nice sweet malty body with a decent hop profile. If not for the price a fine beer to waste a summer day with.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap... Poured a hazy amberish-red with a white head, really nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops and earthy grains. A little bit of hops initially in the flavor but then the focus came to the creamy, caramel malts and bread-like flavors towards the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 OZ bobmer via Hagen. Pours a copper with reddish highlights, and an average off white head. Nose is pleasant toasty and and mild floral hops. Taste is toasted malts, straw, herbal/earthy hops. More of a malt profile than a hop, but pretty balanced as the hops to kick in in the aftertaste a bit. Body is light/medium, carbonation just right. A bit watery. A nice easy to drink backyard summer beer.
