Deep golden color,white head. Malty, light hops for a touch of balance, light caramel. Decent body, kinda boring but nothing wrong with it.

Bottle. Medium clear gold with a small cream-colored soapy head that receded quickly and left no lacing. Nose: parched grass ,goldenrod and cardboard. Iím having trouble detecting any flavor beyond a faint biscuity-bready smell. Medium bodied. Tastewise this is hardly better than something from BudMillerCoors, and itís more expensive.

ABUSEDGOAT (2361) - California, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Whoa. Overcarbonated. Too much head here for a thin golden body. Aroma of pears and some citrus. Some bitterness in the finish, but really thereís nothing here. Do they know what hops are? Wayyy too watery.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 2004 bottle at Julioís Spring Beer Fest, 4/02/05. Golden body, with a small white head, mostly dissipating to bubbles. Clear. Aroma of dry grains, a bit of grass and dry nuts and paper.... Flavor is bland, with drying wheat, grassy hops, low bitterness and just a plain water and neutral pale malt flavor. Very watery and light bodied, no sweetness to be found. Moderate carbonation.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
fizzy gas, little on taste, which gives a middle mouthfeel with an uncomfortable graininess. Tad of tartness more than bitterness and drying sweetness

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Fruity floral nose. Small quickly dissipating white head. Deep golden hue. Faintly sweet malt, light body, sweet and citric, faint bitterness. I must agree with Austin...APA seems like a broad generalization in this case...Blonde or whatever this is, isnt any good in my opinion. This brewery fairly disappoints me. Blah

Dark straw pour with hopcit aroma. Slight hopcit taste. This one would be a passable lawn mower beer, but it wonít be enshrined in the Hall-of-Fame any time soon.

OldGrowth (2651) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Bottle, from Halftime. Good nose, grassy lemon/lime, maybe a hint of clove. Big foam, and I usually pour so they donít, beigey white colored. Hazy brownish orange color, a little sediment. Flavors are same as aromas. Thinner bodied, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish, clovey thing shows up. Good beer, but Iím not crazy about the flavor .

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Clear amber color with a tall chunky head that had a good hang time. Aroma was bready. No real strong hop presence, but just enough to keep this from being overly sweet. Well balanced, but a rather tame and easy drinking middle-of-the road ale.
