COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing extra pale ale, Haymaker features a distinct blend of four malts and three varieties of hops that create a slightly complex ale with a light body and a crisp finish. Its alcohol by volume of 5.3% complements the low bitterness - 15 bittering units - and original gravity of 12.8 degrees Plato. Bright golden in color, it can best be described as "sunshine in a glass."

Hazy yellow color, small white head. Bready, slightly citrusy and grainy nose. Bready, pale malty flavor, a bit harsh finish. Palate is watery. There is some good points in this beer, but overall too light.

jcwattsrugger (11079) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2007
on tap-pours a white head that laces and yellow color. Aroma is grassy/grain-caramel, like a pilsner with extra medium malt. Taste is grassy/spicy-hops, grain/light malt-sweet caramel, crisp. OK effervescence.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Aroma of floral hop (I think) backed with some citrus. The aroma seems a bit dusty. Lightly orange tinged gold color with a subtantial head that attempts some lacing. Starts lightly sweet and floral, followed by a light maltiness, which continues into the finish. There is a floral or herb component in the finish, as well as a malt note, and barely enough bitter. After four lagers, this was a pleasure. Perhaps otherwise, if it had followed four IPAs.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Draft @ Bridgeport in Portland. Mostly clear straw colored body. Nose of skunked grains and hazy and dry, twangy, strange hops (moldy). Flavor is malt-forward but thin on the palate, skunky and twangy, simple and sour grains. Not good.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Faintly floral Euro-hops aroma with a bit of malt. Light body with flavors of mildly spiced hops and sweet malt. A hint of grapefruit as well. The finish is mildly hoppy and short. Barely average overall.
