3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. Malt and fruity hops aroma, delicate, nice. Dry mouthfeel, not too weak, with toffee malt flavor, reasonable bitterness, and very nice soft hop resins, also some hop fruitiness.
At this gravity, a real pleasure; well brewed, balanced, fresh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden pour with a white head. Floral hops, lemon peel, and some grass. Maybe a bit of biscuit. Really light aroma. The flavor is pretty light, too. Mildly bitter, some citrus and grass notes, and a floral hop quality. Some bread and biscuit sweetness. That’s pretty much it...

Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is a strange mix of toffee and floral. Med minus body. Flavor starts fruity, gets a little mixed hop, and then goes a little wheaty. The pleasures are too subtle for me.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of dry wheat, hay, and some dry hoppy notes. Flavour is quite subtle and light, with dry notes of hay and wheat, grassy notes, and corn. Pretty light, refreshing and unassuming on the palate. Decent stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Bend brewpub. The beer is a clear copper color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and bready malt. Light-bodied with flavors of hops, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tap at an Irish Pub somewhere in Santa Monica thanks to DedicatedToFun. Clear orange pour with weaker foam. Unsweetened tea nose. Tea, deep malt density, maple in taste. Clean mouthfeel. Not sticky sweet or astringent. Not bad.

"A blonde/golden ale with a fresh northwest blast of hops in the nose. Cereal and light hops. A very nice, mellow fruity light ale - good with food or as a starter :)"
