3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Capitol City Downtown. Last beer of the night so I made notes as a deluge of alcohol brutally assaulted my brain, as has happened on many, many an occasion. It’s really a miracle that my IQ has not dropped into the single digits after all this. Anyway, this beer pours a clear bright golden color with a nice white head that sticks around and leaves some lacing. Aroma is pale malt, grain, and mild grassy hops. Flavor is more of the same - pale malt, graininess, grassy hops. Almost exactly what you’d expect for a fairly good representation of this style. Palate is somewhat light and crisp with an appropriate carbonation level.

Very pale, almost like water. Light body and nearly flavorless. Perhaps a good beer for a hot day.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Brewpub: Poured a golden yellow without much head. The aroma was malty. The flavor was grainy and malty. Overall, the easiest beer to drink at this brewpub.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Downtown location. The beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spots of lacing on the glass under a ring at the top. Fruity aroma with malt underneath. Light and crisp body with flavors of fruit, sweet malt and mild grassy hops. The finish is fruity with a short mild bitterness left over. Just average overall.

Growler sent by strykzone. Thanks Dave! DC off my list! Pours a yellow color. Aroma is fresh and livley. Flavor is crisy, dry and yeasty. I don’t usually like this style all that much, but this one was good. I could drink it all day.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub near Union Station in Washington, D.C. Light yellow pour with a bubbly, slightly spicy nose, very grapey and dry flavor, like a chardonnay, sharp notes but not too bitter, great sessionable beer, especially for the style, I really enjoyed this one.
