3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the pencilandspoon Beer Swap project.
I was slightly concerned with the pale lagerish smell as I uncapped it, however, once in the glass all was well. Pours a clear, pale gold with a fluffy, lasting white head. Nose of sweetish malts, orangey/grapefruit citric hops, candied fruits, wheat/hay and berry notes that emerge as it warms. Taste is again sweet pale malts and juicy, fruity citric hops, has a medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and ends dry and bitter with a little wheat in the finish. It’s not a bad beer by any means but for me the flavor falls just short of the promise from the aroma, if they could match that it would go from good to great.

Fine but not particually distinctive. Very main stream, lacks a hoppy or fruity taste but perfectly drinkable

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Consistently good wether in bottles or from the barrel. Really well balanced and refreshing without being at all citrusy. A light hoppy beer of choice for me.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Golden beer, medium carbonation. A little oily on the palate. Slight caramel aroma, grassy, citrus and peppery hops, bit of a doughy finish. All right, nothing special.
