2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Atoms of sweet caramel and honey, bready grain, and a hint of grassy citrus hop notes. Taste follows, but the hips kind of die off leaving a sweeter malt character. Decent fit what it is.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a little disappointing for a spring beer. It had a very hoppy aroma and drinks more like a pale ale than a spring. The beer itself is good, but compared to other spring ales it just seem status quo.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Comes out of the tap a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is malty, fruity, and slightly sweet. Fruit and sweetness dominates the otherwise malty flavor, still a delight. Texture has about average firmness and fizz, leaving a fruity finish. If not outstanding, still enjoyable and refreshing, good for bringing a bit of spring into a chilly day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours clear with an apropos copper hued and a medium-small, receding, white head.
Smell: Honey nut, toasted grain-flecked bread, faintest light brown sugar. Hops throw off some modest notes of citrus peel, mild resin and a light grassiness.
Taste: Malts tasting of toasted grain, toasted bread with a light whisper of brown sugar and honey sweetness. Lightly nutty. Zesty, slightly grassy hops with enough bitterness to balance it out. Drying finish, with a lingering, gentle fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a pleasant, sudsy texture to it.
Overall: An easy-drinking ale, not overly hoppy nor particularly malty.

this was a little lighter than i was expecting on the palate(it was in a glass, and in the dark i thought it might have been a PA), but easily redrinkable. fresh hops, a bit of grassiness, a decent balance of malt backbone. not bad at all.

Draft at Momos Pizza. Clear copper pour with a foamy white head. Nose is light crystal malts and caramel with hints of floral hops. Clean, sweet flavor with caramel and nuttiness. Nothing to see here....

Beautiful copper color. A weak aroma, very easy drinking beer. A hint of floral at the end, nothing sweet for a spring.

12 oz bottle This was purchased from Corks and Kegs. They have a nice selection of beers and ales. The clear honey colored ale had a small head with some lacing. There was some hint of bitter hops but the sweetness of the caramel malts was more dominent. The carbonation was average with a clean finish.
