Light orange color. Cascade-y hops and a solid malt back. Not a bad smell, but the taste drops the hops. Mostly malt, not bad.

A little bit stronger than the Dirty Blonde. A step up with the malts and hops. They seem to up the flavors slowly at Barley and Hops.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 9/5/09
Aroma: Caramel, earth, grass, citrus, a bit lacking
Appearance: Golden straw color, bit of lace
Flavor: Sweet malt character, mild hop and fruit characteristics

Another pretty alright, but unexciting brew. Not one I’d run out for a good, but drinkable and unoffensive.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the 2009 MD Spring Fest. Golden-tan color. Pretty much standard Pale Ale territory. Filtered, and while it does display a soapy hop character, it’s overall pretty simple and thin. Ok session beer, but a little sub-par.
