3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden ale with stable, snow white head and clear golden blonde colour. Aroma of lime, apple peel, lemon zest, honey, grass, straw, white bread, pine resin and something sweaty. Soft, elegant taste, light, fruity, a bit honeyish, malt sweet, a bit bready, medium long grassy hop bitterish finish. Refreshing and elegant, as is to be expected from the style.

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours golden with a fading white head. The taste is citrus with a toasty malt finish. Light and refreshing, but extremely disappinting for a Brooklyn beer. Average at best.

The ultimate summer beer to me. Very smooth and small bubbles like fine corsican fizzy water, IMHO.

Bottle. Clear golden colour. Light fresh floral aroma. Sweet malt taste. No finish. Refreshing but no character. Pretty boring.

Transfer from BA review on 6-11-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- Served a medium golden amber colored brew with a small white head. The head fades quite fast leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet and citrusy. A little bit of breadiness and wheat is mixed with a good dose of sweet lemon and grapefruit as well as an orange smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy and malty taste with some flavors of lemon upfront. The lemon is on the slightly sweeter side up front, but sours more as the taste advances to the end. Along with the souring in the taste so too comes flavors of a more bitter hoppy flavor. The hop are of a herbal and citrus nature, leaving a odd bitter but sour taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thinner then average in creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are good for the style of the beer and create a light refreshing feel overall.
Overall – Not bad, but a little too much bitterness which takes away slightly from the more refreshing characteristics of the brew.

Definitely a golden ale, but seems watered down. Mild malt aroma and sweet malt taste, and then an abrupt finish. Mouthfeel and consistency are watery. Refreshing, but bland.

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. A pale amber pour with a trace of white head; floral citrus aroma; biscuity malt taste with some lemony citrus; and a clean finish. Pleasant enough - but nothing more.

Aroma and flavor crisp malt driven but with a bit of fruity orange hops and a bit of yeasty spice to it as well. Still a blonde ale, but a pretty nice one.

This is a decent mild pale ale which is nice and drinkable but doesn’t have great hop character. It is clear orange in color w/ a small head. It’s nose is mostly of grassy and herbal hops, I suspect British varieties. Taste is light w/ simple sweet malt with a savory hop underpinning that doesn’t really work. It does have nice, vigorous carbonation that keeps it nice and lively though. Overall, I can’t say I’m in love w/ this stuff but knocking a few back on a Brooklyn rooftop would probably hit the spot on the right summer day.
