3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out a bright gold with a large bubbly white cap that retains well and give a lot of messy lacing. Excellent aroma! Super fresh and lively, very complex with biscuit and some roast malts, lots of lemon, tangerine, sweet fruity candy and more... awesome! Breathe deep... repeat. Let íer warm up a bit of course! The taste is not as good as it is on the mellow side but it is not a let down considering the style. Biscuit, grain, citrus and an interesting blend of bitterness perfectly placed.. all mild but good! The flavours are best found when not too warm. Mouth feel is good with ample carbonation. Seems to be nearest to light medium bodied. Malty finish. I sure changed my mind on this beer! Take this out of a glass, tards.

Pours a golden color with plenty of carbonation and a nice white head that disapates quickly. Has a heavily spiced aroma and taste, but still keeps its drinkability. Definitely a nice beer for the summer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly opaque copper-gold color with a light white head. Floral aroma on pour which tapers off. Nice balance b/w the hops and malts. Light bodied. Pretty refreshing. Not bad at all.

Bottle best by Oct 2009. Poured golden with a thin white head. The aroma found wheat, toasted malts, and hints of citrus. The flavor had toasted malts and a citrus backing. Light to medium body.

Pours clear orange yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is yeast and other zesty spices. Taste is more dull with orange flavor, wheat, and yeast. Good body, good clean finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A real dichotomy here. Where do I start with this one? Pour this beer and itís golden pale yellow with little to no head. The smell is like fuggles and amarillo hops, my least favorite and second most favorite respectively. It has that bland but bitter english malt taste we all know and hate and is a little sour-doughy on the backend. Very bitter aroma. The finish and aftertaste are sweet. Too bad I bought a pint of this and not the sour I sampled.

I usually hate summer ales but this beer is tops. Very grassy notes, but delicious finish light hops. This could become one of my favorites. I havenít had a great beer from Brooklyn since they first unveiled their lager. This could be better or its equal. I highly recommend!

Bottle pours yellow with a sparse head. Aroma of corn and stale grain. Slight grassy bitterness in the beginning followed by the body that is loaded with corn. Fairly sweet. Nothing sticks out as memorable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Pale golden color with a good sized white crown. I canít explain it but this beer looks empty and I canít explain how it looks empty it just looks empty. Dull hop aroma with bruised banana, and dark wheat this smells ok I guess itís just not appealing to me. The flavor is very watery and empty, dark wheat, melon, banana, and a massively dry finish. I guess this a very drinkable yard work beer but I just found it to watered down and unexciting but it was still complexÖÖ.how very odd."
