3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Lightly hazed yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet offers pale grains, mild leather and barely-perceptible acidity. Full-bodied and creamy with gentle carbonation. Fresh lupulin and pale malts provide perfect balance. Mid-length, crisp, refreshing finish.

A harvest blonde ale? Why? Really, is this the best showcase for harvest hops?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Bottle at Bodega in La Crosse. This beer is a clear orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes to an outer ring. Rings of lacing on the glass. Cereal malt and grassy hops aroma. Medium body with flavors of hops, grass, pine and sweet malt. The finish is short and hoppy. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent deep golden with a thin covering of wispy white head. Aroma of fresh grassy hops with a touch of grapefruity and semi-sweet pale maltiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and a lightly sugary malty sweetness with a resiny piny hop bitterness and mild citrus before a drier crisp hoppy finish. Could use more aromatic grapefruity hops, but still a pretty good hoppy pale ale.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bomber. Poured light orange/straw golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up dusty earth and dank floral character over honey and toasted grains.. this was truly unpleasant. The flavor really wasn’t any better.. honey, pale malts, and toasted grains at the core with earth, dry floral, and peppery bitterness around.. sharp finish with tacky bitterness and boozage. Light-bodied and bitter, but with no direction on the palate.. never felt or tasted good. I’m sorry to whoever receives a box from me in the next few days with one included.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a nice clear gold with a bright white head.
The nose is subtle, mild and grassy.
The flavor is malty with a hint of citrusy and grassy hops.
The mouthfeel is smooth and it goes down easy.
It is a basic, basic beer, a good session beer.
