UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 A very mildly hopped pale with bland flavor and aroma. A basic pale ale with no hidden surprises.

Nice, golden color with a medium, fine white head. Sweet, mildly hoppy with some nice malty taste as well. Very enjoyable.

Good fruity aroma, but nothing came out in the taste. Finish and aftertaste were a sketchy bitter, really not appealing. They should not have brought this to a festival.

On Draft at Brewery. Light golden color, small white head with some lacing. Understated aroma of malts and fruit. Mild malty flavor, with light hops. Light body with moderate carbonation. Not my favorite style, but a clean, fresh plae ale.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 Decent head, very white with good lacing. A yellowish/amber color. Light hops and malt nose. Slight bready aroma. More bitter than I expected with an average finish. Very dry and fizzy on the palate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep, clear, gold color. Mildly fruity (orangey and spicy) and mildly yeasty aroma with some hop in there. Gentle, orangey hoppy flavor with a sour, yeasty finish. Good, balanced. Not terribly complex, but complex enough to be interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very slight malt aroma. Nice lightly malted body, which finishes slightly sweet. A good example of the style, but not what I was expecting.

Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is medium sweet, some fruity (apricot), some bitterness. Taste is mild sweet, grassy hoppy. Light/medium body. Accessible beer, but with some meat on its bones.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much of an impresive color to this beer as it is mainly based upon the color of yellow. Not much to say for head either. Kind of a boring aroma on it with maybe some figs. Not much else to say for the taste, slightly malty, some hop hints. So this is better than a pilsner, but not better than much else, but for a weak light beer it tastes decently good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium yellow color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and sweet. A medium bodied ale. Malts are mild, fruity and kind of sweet. Hops are present, but kind of hidden. They pop out at you every once in a while. Very smooth. More of a Kolsch than a pale ale. It’s a great hot day/lawnmover beer. Mild and interesting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
