3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Brass Rail, 12/28/12
Aroma: The nose is citrusy, with some German yeast, grapefruit, grass, pine, and grainy notes
Appearance: Pours a hazed yellow color with a frothy white head that coats the glass in lace
Flavor: The flavor is mid-sweet, it has crisp, clean flavors, with a nice medium bitter finish
Palate: The body is light-medium, it drinks really cleanly, not watery at all, rather refreshing
I was really rather impressed by this one. It has most everything I look for in a "boat beer.". I donít think they can this, but if they did, a cooler full of this would be great for any tailgate, boat trip, or the like. Well done!

Growler. Pale golden with a medium bright white head. Aroma is hops; floral, pine, citrus, with just a small malt background. Taste is mild-medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is quite bitter. Light bodied, average carbonation. Great for a hot day.

Just not feeling it with this one. Looks delicious, smells awesome, but itís high hop/low malt profile (which I assume is how they keep the ABV so low) just doesnít work for me. Iíve tried this at least three times with consistent results.

In short: A fruity-hoppy blond beer promoting freshness and refreshing qualities.
How: Growler shared at Camping Brewdown 2012.
The look: Cloudy blond body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is very hoppy with fresh tropical fruits along with some citrus fruits. Nothing aggressive here, just a very clean inviting fruity hoppy aroma. Taste is clean, nice cereals pushing forward freshness. A generous hopping with a whole lot of refreshing tropical fruits and light grassy notes. Soft refreshing bitterness, nothing aggressive here. This was a really refreshing beer and went back for multiple samples during that sunny day. Strange that Carton describes it as a hoppy kŲlsch but ratebeer currently list the beer as a golden ale. Whatever it is, it was a great thirst beer. And if you never had this great session beer then clearly (*drumroll* *wait for it* *wait for it*) you guys are totally missing the Boat Beer!!! (*boom tss* *applaude*).

Top Hops. Draft. Delicious. I like this beer a lot. Beautiful golden yellow with unfiltered haze. Packs a lot flavor for a session. Tons of lemon and grassy/vegetal bitterness. This is a beer I could drink many of.

Sitting here at the Copper Mine Pub drinking one of my new favorite every day beers and I thought I would add my first rating in almost three years. Hazy blonde/straw color with a good size white head. Fresh, clean aroma of lightly toasted malts combined with a mild piney scent. Very refreshing, bright flavor with grapefruity notes and a kind of biscuity malt backbone. Extremely drinkable beer and with the fairly low alc/vol it makes a great session beer.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 On draft at Salt Gastropub in Byram. Unfiltered Blond Ale appearance. Tastes more like an IPA with mild but dominant hop bite with grapefruit flavors. Easy to session. Looking forward to tasting more from this brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
