3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Hoppy citrus aroma. Hazy orange-amber body, lots of sediment, huge white head. Flavor is tart, citrusy, very pleasant. Nice one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It is indeed like an "IPA lite". There are ghostly wisps of piney citrus hops, but it is quite light on the tongue. Pretty good, and would be great on a hot day.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Eastern Standard Boston before sox/yanks game. It has a good hop profile for a light beer. A bit thin in the body and the overall flavor is un-complex and straightforward. If the temps are climbing north of 90 this is a good option to cool yourself down. You don’t even feel bad drinking it out of the bottle.

Not thrilled with this one. Surprised to see it rated so highly. I guess I’m just not into this style much. Oh well. The other BOM brews were pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden color with a tint of hops. Typical sweet lager with a mild bitter finish. Skip this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Probabaly the best light beer I’ve ever head. This beer had some taste and a hop profile. That said, I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clouded gold with no head. Nose is subdued citrus with a grain quality to it. There isn’t much to the nose though. It is rather light. Flavor is a slight bit hoppy and a fair bit earthy. Overall kind of toned down from something that seems like it could be a whole lot more. Feel is standard stuff. Overall it is drinkable, sure. I wouldn’t say it is overly interesting, and definitely not worth the price. Nice, but not worth walking more than seven feet out of your way for.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Very light yellow beer, but with a gigantic head of white foam. The aroma is lightly citric, yet biscuity. This drinks with a bite of corny malt, and a funky woody bite. (#3162, 10/28/2007)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 Oz Bottle. Aroma is a gentle, light sudsy barley kernel and toasted almond. Subtle, soapy and with leaf. Pours a heavily opalescent pale gold, straw inflected, with rocky white head above. Flavor has three nice movements, first a bubbly fresh plain, clean malt, mingled with some Cascade hops and general resin and sugar. Then a faint whiff of bready yeast, doughy and creamy. Good middle body. Finishes off with a long, unexpected draw of hops, in good tones of Cascade and other west coasters. All around I was impressed by the body, drinkability and flavor of this beer. The hops are very enjoyable, the yeast character desirable and helping and the smack and body full and refreshing. Good stuff!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
poured into tulip. pours a clear golden yellow with full white fluffy head. sour malt, slight hop aroma, citruss presence. full mouthfeel, light finish. smooth consistency, not much depth and thin complexity, little metalic on the front. good light sessionable but nothing extremely special going on, lacks much complexity/blance and background. probably would be much better strait out of the bottle.
