Light, hazy yellow color with no head. Faint aroma of honey. Very floral taste with a grainy finish. On the moderate side, but definitely a good Golden Ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz no date. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a minimal white head fading to a film. Aroma of old corn, some sweet malts, light floral hops, and a bit of dirtiness. There is a bit of tang in the flavor with corny grain and a little dirt in the finish. I don’t know if there was any bitterness at all in there. Minimal carbonation and a light body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light lemon grain husk aroma. Mildly sweet and a touch wheaty. Some salty japanese cuisine notes. Pours a middle gold, clearish, with a rocky soap of white. Flavor is a bit sticky with some lighting metallic ringing, before moving into a sweeter, subtler apples and pears malt sugar run. Again, faint grains and mild sweetness. A tinge of hop dust brightens up the smack. Not terrible, not a winner. Thanks Brigadier!

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Not quite on par with the others I’ve tried from this brewer but still quite good. Well balanced in an unusual way I have trouble articulating. The sweet malt end just fits with the hop/citrus/spice end.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006. Pungent-sweet aroma rising out of a hazy gold body with a lasting touch of head....honey, sweet malts and more than a touch of bready yeast make for some nice complexity in a lighter beer....body is much drier than I’d expect, lightly tart and a even sour to finish, thin pale malts and rather watery overall....still, not at all bad for the "Coors Light" of the lineup.

Breadlike yeasty smell, light body, good amount of carbonation, sweet and dry finish. A very well balanced, delicious, refreshing ale.

On tap at Ale Asylum. Poured a hazy, lighter golden with a short white head and some lacing. Nose was of grains and husk... some lemony notes... really quite pleasant actually. Flavor was of corn husk and grains.. sharp lemon and wheaty tartness around the tongue. On the palate the tart notes were well-placed and the carbonation was a tad high... solid, refreshing brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazed light straw color with a snowy white head. Looks a bit like a wit. Mild citric and spice scent with hints of orange blossom honey and sweet pale malts. Something is slightly amiss as there is a mild soap/cleaner aroma as well. A light crisp tasting brew, that has just enough thickness in body not to seem watery, Perhaps some malto dextrin, which may explain some of the scents/flavors. Lightly floral hops flavors dance about with the citric hops and are joined late by simple pale malt. Simple, with enough complexity to be an honest brew. This would be great by the lake on a hot summer night.

12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery tasting room. Slightly hazy, golden color with bubbly white head. Light malty cereal grain aroma with a touch of hay and spucy hops. Delicious fresh malty cereal grain and pineapple flavors. Light and fruity on the tongue. Tasty golden.
