2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold Color, Huge Foamy Head, Decent Thin Lacing. Initial Pour Has A Light Hop Scent, that becomes a Faint Sour Funky Aroma. Reminds me of Sorghum. Sweet First Sip Impression Immediately Followed By Sour Taste. From there on you no longer get that sweetness but wheat like acidic citrus sourness instead. Light Hop taste is hidden somewhere under that sourness. Itís a miss for style. Itís a mediocre brew overall. Drinkable but not really enjoyable. Another sign that good and bad things in life always balance out..Thanks to Slava for a Free Gift. I was really excited to get something that I havenít tried already.Too Bad, it is not that good. Pass It...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Wisconsin Dells location. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma isnít overly aromatic - some light pine when the glass was first brought out, but the aroma waned considerably. There was a bit of spicy rye and orange peel as it warmed. Lightly bready flavor with fresh cut straw and hay flavors. Highly carbonated. A rather decent session beer.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The aroma of this beer makes you regret your purchase almost immediately. My first impression was wet dog with a note of citrus. The beer itself is golden in color with a weak head. The taste is citrus with a bit of floral notes. Could not finish. Would not buy again.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really a strange beer. Very fruity and flowery tasting. But very bitter but a definitely hoppy beer. Hard to drink more than one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Middleton Sprecher Pub as "American Pale Ale" - Pours clear amber with a ring of white head. Nose is orange marmalade, jammy hops, garlic/onion, with a pretty clean malt base. Taste is the same blend. Real smooth, with mellow malt--pretty clean. Smooth and well-carbonated. So apparently this beer is horrible out of the bottle, but on tap I have to say I quite enjoyed it.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Disappointing brew. Poor aroma for a beer labeled "Aroma Hop Ale". It was actually a bit funky (not in the good way). I would not buy again.
golden, clear, minimal head,

Light appearance, weak taste with an ok aroma. The label is the best thing about this beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
First of all, Iíd like to say that that the name and packaging suckered me into buying this without looking up the ratings, should have known this was going to be horrible, pours a clear golden with a thin white bubbly head, aroma has a slight hop touch, but really not a lot is there, the flavor is really off on the front end, really funky, and not in a good funky way, like a horrible way instead. Damnít, I could have picked up Moon Man for a dollar less than this, complete fail.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Knew after seeing the ABV it wasn't going to be that great so low expectations going Into this. Ratings worse than it actually is IMO. Pouts light orange with white head. Grassy smell. Not hoppy. Sweet and somewhat fruity taste. Easy to drink but don't expect an IPA or even pale ale

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour into shaker. Light, hazy yellow; small quick fading head; heavy, continuing carbonation. Big, flowerly aroma that is somewhat pleasant on the nose, but is not so good when it hits the palate. Like some other reviewers, I am not sure why the label suggests it is hoppy; it is not. This tastes light like a 4.2 ABV. Nothing wrong with this beer; it is drinkable. But I would rather choose something else.
