Pours a pale old gold to orange with a 3 finger, chunky, eggshell head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma of swwet malt, toast, caramel, cereal, floral and spicy hops and light tree and dark fruit. Flavor of cereal, toast, sweet malt,hay, apple skins, light caramel and mineral notes, floral hops and just a hint of spicy and herbal hops. Light to medium body with a creamy entry quickly leading to a moderate strength, but sharp carbonation and slightly dry, crisp finish. Good stuff, surprisingly refreshing and light, but with a great malt backbone and slighly warming booziness. Has a very, "Pilsener on Ale yeast" feel.

11.2 oz capped bottle. Pours a fizzy blonde color with a thick cream foam head and lace. Corny, grassy aroma. Surprised to see a lot of different flavor here. Mostly grassy with a lot of corn and some wheat. Thick creamy body to it. Dry grain finish. Interesting beer.

It pours golden with pulp like suspended elements in the glass. It has a honey aroma, with bread malts, a bit of caramel, and earthly elements. It has a sweet taste with a bit of sour with a fair bit of carbonation pop to it. Taste does have dough and bread flavoring to it.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, biscuit, fruity. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have bready malts, honey, light caramel, mild fruity notes, some dusty character, soft earthy bitterness to the finish.

A very nice blond. Has a bit of lemon above an earthy background. The flavor is crisp and refreshing. The finish is dry. A very good summer thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Davhgbrew (947) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Dark golden appearance. Aroma of the winner’s circle in Amesbury. ..basically a dingey sports bar that had pool tables in the basement. Sips medium bodied with moderate liveliness, slightly champagne like palate. Yeasty, bready, and leaning towards malt driven flavors. Finish is moderately dry and crisp showing off the refreshing qualities. Nice brew, prob really good with cheese and light fish.
