COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here’s one that’s clean and refreshing enough for the long haul, but fully graced with hop aroma, malt heft and clear craft passion. Sit back, relax, and let the subtle pleasures reveal.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
From variety pack. Mild peak of grass and hop, earthiness and citrus. I probably wouldn’t pick this out directly. Not bad for a blonde.

light hazy amber copper. Kinda dark for a golden ale. Nice hop body. All around balanced brew. Reminds me more of a session ipa than a golden ale. I’d drink this regularly.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Light amber, slight haze, white dense head, lots of bubbles. Light citrus aroma, lime like with a light bread aroma. Light in body, crisp, a slight citrus taste. Nice session beer.

Nephilium (1487) - Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Slight grainy aroma, pours a clear amber with a quickly fading head. Mild grainy flavor, just a touch of floral hop notes in the finish. A non-offensive, easy drinking blond ale.

12 ounce bottle from variety box. Golden color. Light yeasty citrus taste with a nice hop balance. Sessionable.

ALLOVATE (2595) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2014
Rating from earlier this year.
Into a chalice, chilled. Pastel orange, short of bright with fine and intermittent carbonation. Snow white crown holds high for the length and daubs a messy lace. Dominant raw hop aroma; piney, resinous, slight eucalypt, gum, sap, honeydew, forest floor, lime zest - this is heaving with the smell of the brewhouse. Wow, hops; made a hop soup with Noble and U.S hops years ago and that is the taste. Wha?! Raw, prominant, dominant, rough and all things hops are before the boil. Huge pelletised hops flavour. The nose is the flavour. Eucalypt, pine, gum, honeydew, lime zest and those hops. Low to no malt; weird, salted popped corn flavour. Good body with good hold and soft carbonation. Mildly bitter but no peak with lengthy hoppy finish. Weird!! (12fl.Oz, BB 11/02/14, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

two7offsuit (355) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of floral hops. Flavor hints at grapefruit with mild hoppiness.

hayduke (3698) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a light amber with a small white head. Little lacing. Nose is floral hops. Light in body. Flavor is light fruit and floral hops. Bland in character without much going for it. I like low ABV beers but the good ones have more flavor. \

Denton13173 (1) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 21, 2014 does not count
Leaves a sense of sweet-to-bitter on the back sides of the tongue and tends to linger there. The aroma is sweeter than the taste, and the transparency is a good indicator of the lightness as well as taste of this beer. Deschutes has done better, but this is a somewhat okay lighter beer.
