1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thirty years ago, i was participating on a 10 mile hike with the Boy Scouts of America through the back-roads of central Texas. The time was the height of summer, at least 95 degrees. We all ran out of water from our canteens after a few miles. To supplement our desire for nature’s drink, we would sneak up to a random house and grab water out of a willing and unwatched garden hose :)
This is the memory that was invoked when drinking this beer (growler, aka 1/2 gallon, aka jug); water out of a garden hose. The hose probably had a little lead leaching, but i am sure that at least this beer is lead free.
If you are working in the yard or roof this beer is for you. If you are looking for a flavorful beer, then look elsewhere.

Crisp Clean. One of the pioneers of western mass craft brewing. If you like European Lagers this beer is more than acceptable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/6/15
Aroma: The aroma is bready malts, with some herbal and spice notes.
Appearance: It pours an unclear gold-orange color with a sheeting white head and mid-heavy lace.
Flavor: The taste is similar, bready malts, lightly sweet, spice and herbal light bitterness.
Palate: The body is light-medium, fairly clean, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish.
This is decent. Not something I’d rush out for again, but a decent offering none-the-less.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: cereals, fruits (orange, grapes?), spices, grass. App: hazy straw with small white head. Taste and palate: light body, oily, watery, light sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: a boring pale ale, not complex, body too thin, not enough bitter, not enough malty.

Light and refreshing, with a strong, fruity aroma but not a whole lot of flavor to go with. Light Amber colored and smooth.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity base, lighter bitterness, sweet candy malts, and mild citric undertones. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-1-12 -
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a two finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave a moderate level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is sweet with strong notes of a caramel and butterscotch nature. Mixed with this is a lightly roasted bready aroma as well.
Taste – A sweet malty flavor greets the tongue. The biscuit flavored maltiness is mixed with a heavy dose of caramel. As the flavor advances on, the roasted flavor begins to lose their strength, with flavors of butterscotch and light fruits as well as hoppy flavor (which is quite light) working their way into the flavor profile. The taste finishes leaving a rather satisfying flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side with the carbonation level that is very appropriate. Both good and tasty.
Overall – A very easy to drink and quite enjoyable brew. One to try if you get a chance.
