COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triple-hopped light bodied summertime-style brew with the body of the beer completely from BridgePort’s regular high-color pale malt which gives a subtle pleasant biscuit-like malt flavor. Beer mainatins a smooth bittering profile at an easy-to-drink 28 IBUs. The Meridian dry hops create an aroma and flavor that is very distinctive and reminiscent of sweet Meyer lemons.

Happy to see Bridgeport sending new beers into TX .. Had at the bar with pretty tits .. . Medium gold yellow .. Solid foam .. Hay, straw, and light dirt .. Touch gritty, quick finish .. Decent .. . . Baseball. A sport for dickheads.

On tap @ Bridgeport. Hazy golden straw pour with white head. Grainy and malty with a touch of banana and applesauce on the nose. A bit of grass and maybe some earthy notes. The flavor is kind of bitter on the finish, but there is a fair bit of sweet fruity esters and cereal grain. Lingering bitterness to it is kind of annoying.

RSRIZZO (1898) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a hazy golden yellow with fizzy carbonation and a rocky white head. Aroma is crystal malt and hop spice. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes on with mild malt giving it just a hint of sweetness backed by a hop spice, white pepper and a faint bitterness. After taste is clean with a citrus note. Overall its a nice easy drinking brew just a little boring.

Bottle. Pours a pretty cloudy tan color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has a bit of wheat coming through, but is dominated by a nice citrus hop character with a hint of dankness. Taste is bready and earthy with a bit of sour and bitterness. Interesting...

wlajwl (4539) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Aroma is citrus, malts and a relatively small hint of dank hops. The flavor is citrus, light lemons, malts and a mix of tart and slight bitterness in the finish.

mjg74 (2790) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle from Roth’s. Pours a hazy light golden straw color. Nose is lightly sweet with a little bit of a fruity hop presence. Bready with some sweetness up front. A little bit of a dry spicy hop flavor. Fairly easy drinker.

rosenbergh (8437) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery Co, Portland, OR. Slightly cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. Very mild citrusy aroma. The flavour is dry malt and some mild hops. Easy... very easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capa (2265) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2015
Hazy yellow with a white head. Lemony sweet aroma with nice light bread malt. Flavor has that lemon sourness without being puckering. Sweet background with a super crispy finish. One of the more flavorful and enjoyable Golden ales I’ve had. Tops. (#2200 completely by accident)

Garrold (2504) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Murky, grey gold colour. Scum of off white head. A looker it ain’t. Smells good, though. Some pink grapefruit. Melon skin. Some mineral. A little lemon tang. Something like lavender in there, maybe. Taste is light bitter. Soft sweet. Palate is zesty, and fairly crisp. A little of the lemon. Finishes minerally dry, with a short, zesty bitterness. A bit unusual with the tang thing going on, but very chuggable.
