2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color with thin watery head and a good carbonation spiral. smell was a little zesty at first but came down to strong biscuit like malts afterward.flavor was all about the bready goodness. a summer beer that concentrates on the malt instead of all lemon hops is a nice change.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.355L bottle, light copper bordering on the orange, almost no head, aroma of rose petals and some light citrus, smooth hoppy bitternes, citrus, bread and a touch of spice, pleasant sour aftertaste, smooth drinking with just the right amount of flavour. Nice to see a Brooklyn which is balanced and does not throw a hoppy punch at you.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is similar to English Blond Ales, with plenty of bread, but lighter hops. Golden pour with plenty of carbonation, head was gone quickly. Flavor offers some light orange spice, bread and nearly no hops. Palate had a pleasant lively bubbliness, probably the best part of this drink. Smooth drinking for the summer, but smooth does not have to equal less flavor.

Pours a honey/ copper pours fast a carbonated, leaving a very thin white head. The nose is light with citrus and fruit tones... maybe lemon, some banana? The taste is complex with mild hops balancing the malts. The beer is a bit thin and almost watery, still very nice for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. This pours an amber color with white head. The color is darker than I anticipated. It Smells good, very fresh and hoppy. Citrus and grass. It tastes bitter, vaguely hoppy and some dirty malt sweetness. Chlorine Finish. Light body, watery. It smells good, but is not impressive overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Pours clean and golden with a strong white full head. Soft aroma of malt. Hops come in subtle towards the end giving it a somewhat dry finish. True to the commercial desription, more of an English summer ale than anything else. Not my favorite beer, but it grows on you and is a light option when you do not want a wheat ale.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 On tap at Barfly (NYC): Tastes of banana are slightly overwhelming, followed by clove, black pepper, liquid bread, and lemon rind. Refreshes on a hot summer day, perfect when married with a chicken ceaser salad. With cheese. #062 on 11072009, DG.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Siciliano’s (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a nice golden hue, well carbonated, no real haze, bright white bubbly big head that dies to a small layer, laces some. Aroma throw grass, grainy malt, a touch of lemon rind, faint pilsner feel. Nice, mellow. Initial is nice mellow malty sweetness that pushes a touch of sourness, grainy malts, a touch cereal, grass and lemon come in on the back, with light bitterness. Crisp, light, a touch sour. Bready largely. Ok. Not my summer brew of choice.
