COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunday Session Hopped-Up Ale, a mellow brew clocking in at only 4.8% ABV. Light, but deliciously hoppy, you can have a few and still remember the fun.

12 loose single at Binny’s. Finally getting to sample an Ale Syndicate brew. This pours a pale lager color under a meringue head. Nose in the glass does not offer much in the way of hops, just a light malty beer nose, but not sugary like the pale lager it resembles. I finally get a nose of one of the 3C’s when I tip it to drink, and there is a light mouthfeel with a mellow dose of hops. It almost comes across as a bit watery, bit it goes down pretty quickly, and leaves a sizable piece of its foam behind. A decent lighter beer with its own ideas for how hoppy to be.

On tap. Pour is cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor light with a bit of orange hop, cookie malt, and a light bread finish. Light and easy to drink. Pretty light on the hops.

12 ounce bottle from Binny’s. Light caramel fruity somewhat citrus. Ok but not of the big hopped session IPA variety.

Nice and crisp. Very nice session ale. Good balance, light in color and set to drink.

Fairly hazy golden with a large, white head. The aroma has a strong oat quality, some sweetness, and a hint of hops. The flavor is a bit strange and has a lot of spice to it. Kinda reminds me of a pumpkin beer. Not much in the way of hops, unless that"s where the spice comes from. Not very good.

Bottle pour. Cloudy wheat color. Subtle, yet deep nose: orange, lemon and bud. Taste is soft, lacks a strong central theme. Light bitterness. Mild citrus. Short finish. OK.

Thanks to iNBe. Unintentionally had on a Sunday. Why certainly a decent hop presence it was scaled back accordingly to the reduced strength. Light but not watery, fresh hops, quite nice. Serving: Bottle

12 oz bottle poured into a high ball glass. Aromas of citrus and herbs are initially noted, then followed up by a light doughiness, dampness, and peaches. It pours a murky yellow orange topped by a medium thin, white foamy ring and sudsy island. A little bit of splotchy lace is left on the glass. The taste is a well banan medium light sweet and medium light bitter. The texture is thin with a light body and lots of fizzy carbonation. Honey, citrus, and herbs come through on the palate. It’s clean, crisp, and dry with spice on the finish that sticks to the palate a bit in the aftertaste.

12oz bottle. Hazy orange unfiltered body. Lots of carbonation bubbles rising to meet am even, foamy, off-white head. The aroma is light and subdued, some dry grassy hops maybe. This would be pretty good if it was just their house light Golden Ale, It doesn’t have enough hop definition to be an IPA of any sorts. Has a grassy, yeasty feel, not unlike a wheat at times. Not a horrible beer, just a weak representation of the style.
