2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Big E, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet, with cream soda and sweet cereal malt. Flavour is similar, with cream soda and cereal malt dominating. Too sweet and candied for my taste. It’s okay but too sweet and not refined at all.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shaker pint draft at Malt and Vine in Redmond, Washington. Pour is slight hazed darker golden copper with smallish white head. Aroma of not too much, some soft floral and grainy toasty malt. Taste of toasty malt, grainy straw, slight floral and some chemical dirtiness near the back. Palate is medium to light, heavy for a golden, but still works OK for this beer. Decent enough.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This struck me as very similar to the lager except it was sweeter and fruitier in both aroma and flavor obviously due to ale yeast. Had a lemon/grass finish and a mildly sweet grainy flavor.
