Average beer. Was not my favorite. Robert likes it. You could get used to it I guess

I never expect too much from "summer" ales as they tend to just be bland blonds w/o much going on but this one is pretty great. It is a light golden brew w/ a mild floral character and a kiss of citrus from coriander. This is rather on the dry side and light to medium bodied but comes off w/ just a touch of sweetness because it is not all that bitter. Brisk carbonation contributes to a light mouthfeel and easy drinkability. This is one that will definitely hit the spot on a nice summer day.

Somewhat cloudy gold/orange appearance. Head starts out finger-length, but disappears rapidly. Sporadic lacing. Aroma of honey and earth. Flavor follows suit. Having this after a workout at the gym, and it’s hitting the spot. Nice mild summer brew that does what it’s supposed to do - not wow you, but fit the context of a hot weather or post-workout thirst quencher that still has some flavor. Certainly a better choice than the typical macro pale lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear pale amber with a bubbly white head and heavy stripes of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with carbonation and mild bittering coming along in the palate, then fading quickly in a short finish. Modest and unassuming, not a lot there, but agreeable enough.

Surprised by low ratings. This is a very nice, very smooth, very flavorful brew. Better than its ABV would suggest. Recommended!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 Bottle pour. Pours golden with a sweet, bready aroma. Flavor is a lot of sweet caramel and bread. Wheat flavors throughout. Very light beer, and all flavor is really mild. Very easy drinking, and fitting for the nice weather, but expected a little more from this one. Not bad. I’d drink it again. Update: I did drink again. Much better experience on draft at the collective. Pretty good.

Pours pale gold with a white frothy head; biscuit and honey aromas; very dry palate with a coarse mouth feel. Lacks flavor.

This light yellow beer has a spectacular honey citrus aroma. It has a mild wheat flavor with a subtle spice.
