3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark golden color with a white foamy head. Head receeds well and leaves a thick lacing along the glass. Nose is grainy with some light grassy hop notes. Palate is failry full with some nice fizziness and a sticky finish. Flavor is a bit lost, kinda dirty. Has some decent grain notes with hints of cereal and a nice bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours light amber in colour, good head, long retention. Has nice floral hops aroma. Flavour is balanced, not too hoppy, a little on the sweet side.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Note: my bottle seemed to be completely infected with diacytl. The beer exploded from the bottle when opened. In need of a re-rate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. The aroma is light and malty with a touch of citrus. The flavor is crisp, clean, and well balanced, with caramel malt and citrusy hops. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden in coloration, hints of cereal. I ended the night with one of these last weekend and feel its about time I put my two cents in since I have been drinking it on and off for a while. Not a bad beer for a "light beer", tastes better than most light beers but has more calories.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Maybe a bit too light for me, but this is what the big brewers should aspire to for the mass market. A touch of hops and malt, easy to drink

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.
