2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Picked up on a visit to the brewery while on vacation in the Cooperstown area. Heavy on the carbonation, like opening a champagne bottle. Be ready with a glass! Drinkable ale, but nothing spectacular. Pretty average.

It has a golden body with a good clear appearance. Its head is bright white and faids slowly. In the nose there are notes of pale maltiness and mild citrus hops. Like the aroma, the hop flavor is fresher and more vibrant. The light pale maltiness is cleaner as well and I didn’t notice any diacetyl notes. It is still light and fairly clean on the finish with just a little more citrus hop character. This is very refreshing, light bodied and easy drinking.

Bottle bought in Cooperstown. Pours a golden bronze colo with a head that fades and leaves lace. Decent drinking with some flavor

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13, Rater #100 of this beer!
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, some sweet malts, a bit of fruit, and some mild hops too
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a decent sized white head
Flavor: The taste is on the lighter side, it is a little sweet, mildly bitter, and fairly dull
Palate: The body of this beer is light and it has a fairly unexciting mouthfeel to it as well
I wasn’t super impressed by this Cooperstown beer either. It isn’t a terrible beer, but it is hardly memorable. Eh...

Bottle. Bottle was a huge gusher, spilling a quarter to a third of the bottle before I could get it into a glass. Finally pours a very hazed amber with a big fuzzy white head that eventually deflates. Smells horribly infected, big paper and old nastiness. Medium bodied, a touch lactic, infected and sweet. More old paper. Just bad.

Very lite aroma that is a little like canned peaches. Flavors ok starts out malty with a good bit of carbonation a finishes with malts and the hops push throw.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. Pretty tasty for style. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer gushed a murky apricot color with a large foamy yellow-tan head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was bread and candied golden fruits. The flavor was bread, honey and candied golden fruits. The beer turned a moderately dry and dusty on the long finish. Very overcarbonated which distracted from what was otherwise an enjoyable beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- Pours a nice golden color with a decent head with bits of lacing.
Mild aroma of malt sweetness, citrus and fresh grain. Flavor is a mild caramel sweetness, bit of citrus and fresh grain. There is a nice mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Light body, smooth with an intangible character. Easy drinker. Good session beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ the Brewery, Cooperstown, NY. Served in taster glass. Also had in a 12 oz bottle from the brewery. Light thin white head, no lace to speak of. Nose is light bread malt, not much else. Taste is really bland. Buttered biscuit with a touch of wheat. This was my least favorite of all the Cooperstown brews. Weak but that really is what I expect from this style.
