Golden color, thin taste. Used it as a "lite" beer substitute at my wedding, and the lite beer drinkers really enjoyed. Not my preferred style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good beer. I didn't know what a bright ale was, so i didn't go into this beer looking for a particular style or flavor. I figured it was a hopped up golden ale or something. Pours clear and golden, with a moderate white head. Frothy. Aroma is slightly hoppy and light. Flavor is crisp and mildly hoppy. Very light body. Slight maltiness, but mostly a light style with mild flavor. Lively carbonation. Tasted awesome on the beach in late June. I'm going to go with a blond ale for the style.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden colour with a thin, large-bubbled white head. Smells of metal and sweet fruit are definately present. The taste is very very watery and slightly floral. This is definatly not an APA, and if it is in fact an ale, which I don't think it is, it's more of a blonde ale. Don't buy this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An adequate, mild ale that's far from an APA. Hardly any hops at all! Likely this is a Blond Ale. Whatever it is, the floral notes are pleasant and I enjoyed it. Decent and fairly mild and sweet. Not a dry or crisp brew.

Clear, light golden. Nose of light cereal, light flowers but mostly smells like macro swill. Quickly dying head, macro flavor, lots of fillers, cereal flavors, hint of metal and lemon...APA my ass.
