3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the VCL. Pours out a clear, light golden color with a big white head. Aroma is of light cereal grains, some crisp fresh baked bread, light grassy and citrus hops. Taste is complex for a light ABV, nice clean malty notes, light grass, some citrus cereal, light floral notes, could definitely drink it all day.

Growler at Campdown Brewdown thanks to dmac. Clear straw, weak white foam. Nose is rich biscuit and grassy hops. Taste is refreshing, grassy max, fresher biscuit. Bitter, herbal. Not malty enough. Danker hop nose. Very thin, session body. Missing that thicker biscuit maltiness found in Victory Summer Love. More thin and soapy. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at P house, pours hazy golden color. Medium white head, and lacing. Aromas and taste are insanely fresh and juicy. Notes of citrus hops, caramel and german malts, lemon kolsch notes, grapefruit, vanilla, cheese funk, and lightly bitter grains. So refreshing and juicy for the low alcohol. Best beer I have had from them and easily in my top 5 pale ales over the last year.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler thanks to the maxxxxxdaddy. Clear light yellow pour with small white head. Aroma has notes of cooked banana and pine. Really mellow but balanced notes of lemon rind, bitter grapefruit, and pine. I wasn’t crazy about the aroma, but the mild and balanced flavor really hit the spot.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Whole Foods. Pale pour with a fine, foamy lid. The aroma is a little rough and yeasty. The flavor is very good though - like a strong pilsner with some piney hop notes, an APA/pilsener blend.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I tasted a more grassy flavor than I did the grapefruit. This beer was exactly as advertised; good to drink if stranded on a boat, but not good enough to drink once on dry land.
