Too sweet with a slightly bitter finish...the agave nectar flavor really ruins the ale and makes for a below-average drink for sure.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 3, 2013
12 oz bottle from my daughterís sampler pack. Nose is fruity, with some bubble gum and a very light vegetal note. Gold with a medium offwhite head. Flavor is fruity and somewhat sweet.

Not so hot, somewhat weird, tartish, nothing in this said agave to me, just a strangely fruity light ale with an unpleasant bitter finish. Copper color, smallish head.

(Bottle). A refreshing summer choice for hot weather. I was not able to distinguish a distinct agave flavor. Mild and watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served chilled. Aroma: No real agave aroma. Smells like a plain wheat ale. Appearance: Fizzy light gold. Soda-like white head quickly fizzes away. Taste: Bready. A little sweetness. Iím not sure if that sweetness comes from the agave nectar or the wheat; itís hard to discern. Palate: Fizzy. There and then gone. The sweet bread flavor lingers a little bit. Overall: Not a whole lot of agave nectar flavor. Itís sweet, yes, but thereís nothing that stands out and says "Oh wow this is not only sweet, itís agave!". Decent brew though.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of agave and earthy grains. The flavor is sweet light grains, big agave, earthy dirty finish. OK.

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2013
clear light golden straw pour with almost no head. nose of wheat and sweet agave is better than the flavor that is much of the same. Medium carbonation helps to cut the sweetness, but overall this is a sweet beer. Very faint hint of butterscotch. not bad. but not my thing.

tmongoose (1283) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Draft that poured yellowish orange with big thick white head. The aroma and flavor were agave sweet and very cloying. The warmer it got the sweeter it became. Just not very good.

JMerritt (1796) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottled. Golden in color with a small white head that is fizzy and mostly diminishing. Stale wheat and straw aroma, very faint, with a very light hint of something citrusy (lemon peel? Oranges?) - somewhat similar to a generic lemon-lime soda. Nondescript grains, hay and very, very faint agave flavor. Stale bread finish. Tastes like a cheap adjunct beer youíd find by the case at a Midwestern gas station.
