3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Malt and wet grain aroma. Nice silky palate but rather disappointing taste of bland malts followed by a satisfying whole grain bread finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub on 8/7/10. Pours a clear gold with a medium off-white head. Aroma is cascade hop and a bit of malt, but mostly non-descript. Decent hop and malt balance in the flavor, but the hops don’t have much character. Not a bad beer, but kinda boring.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours gold with a thin off white head. The aroma is nondescript with some mild notes of fruity hops and toffee. The flavor is the same with a strong alcohol presence considering the ABV. Tasty, but a lackluster finish.

11th October 2008. GABF. Hazy gold beer. Champagne dry but the hops are tepid and apologetic. Nothing special!

Strong malty aroma and flavor are what define this brew. Good notes of carmel and a nice sweetness. Not bad.
