COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Subtle sophisticated flavors from choice barley and select hops combined with cold conditioning, give this beer its exceptional drinkability.

355ml can. Glad to see this isn’t classed as an APA. Deep gold yellow, slight haze, decent head. Sweet nose with a hint of hops. Malt taste is not especially full but balances well with the mild hop bitterness. Creamy body. If this were an APA it falls short, but as a blonde it is decent. Reminded me of a slightly more bitter cream ale.

ClarkVV (3860) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Draught at Deep Ellum, 2/21 and 2/22/14
At first I thought they gave me the wrong beer. An odd, rusty amber color with a small white head. Moderately hazy...
Not much in the nose, some light biscuity grains, bitter, mineral-like, almost metallic hoppiness.
The flavor was a strange mix of brown bread-like maltiness, bitter, straw/grassy hops and lots and lots of buttercream and earthy/dirty yeastiness.
My first thought was that this was not poured through the tap well enough, but I saw about 5 other people drinking the beer and it was late on Friday night so that was hard to believe. Next thought was that it was a freshly delivered, shaken up keg (still wouldnt explain the rampant diacetyl). Anyways, I wasn’t going to rate it, until, the next day, the bartender (coincidentally, my ex-girlfriend) gave me a free pint of it. While the haziness has mostly subsided, the dark brown highlights had not, nor had the diacetyl. Not sure what was going on but not good. Will try it again some time, however.

Consumed from the can. Smell is caramel malts, very slight citrus. Taste is crisp and clean, pretty much a clone of Sierra Nevada.

A very crisp and clean pale ale. Low hop profile. Extremely bland and clean finish, with nothing special or remotely offensive suggested by it. Tastes like a draft beer.

Can from trade with crajun. Pours a clear light orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Aroma is faint fruity and orange hops with a little malt. Taste is dry and fairly bitter. Light citrusy sweetness. Hops taste a bit old. Average pale ale.

JBPortland (458) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 16, 2013
12oz can pours clear orange gold with 3 finger sudsy head. Nose is faint citrus, orange, pretty much nothing there. Mouthfeel is thin with some maltiness. Taste is strange, I get mashed potatoes, some very subtle citrus, grain, bland. Finish is buttery, potatoes, not very bitter. I hate to say it about a homestate brewery, but this is just bad. Try the Stowaway IPA instead.

solidfunk (3004) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Strong honey smell. Malt and hoppy mouth with a little more honey, or maybe it’s just my imagination. Pours cloudy blonde with good head and lacing. Tap at Novare Res.
