3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the beer club. Pouts a very clear pale gold with a good bit of fine head that drops a fair bit but stays and also has good active carbonation. Smell is slightly malty sweet and slightly hoppy with grass and spruce, but fairly weak. Palate is light bodied with moderate active carbonation. Taste is about what I’d expect for a golden ale, slightly sweet, slightly bitter, clean aftertaste. It’s a golden ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden pour that’s just a touch hazy. Long lasting white foamy head. Very grassy and grainy. A little bit of that earthy smell I found in the Red. Again it has that earthy taste. I’m really thinking it’s the Big Rig hops, which I’ve officially decided I dig. Very different from the Red other than that. This is thinner and easier to drink. Grassy and maybe even a bit corny. There’s a sweet spike in the taste just before the finish I find doesn’t fit. Not bad and easy to drink but not nearly as good as the Red.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub. Clear golden with a white rim. Lots of pale malt and grain in the nose, toasty and breast, maybe a little light Noble hops. Medium body, moderate effervescence. Pleasant maltiness/cereals, a bit bready, light Noble hopping, pleasant and inoffensive, more hops than expected; dry with moderate bitterness and a nice pale malt finish with good toast notes.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours straw with some initial head with medium lacing. Nice sweet malt backing, just enough for a pale ale. Some grassy notes. Nothing too complex, but an easy enough beer to please everyone.
