2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is slight sourness like a lemon yogurt, bananas, wheat, dusty, white bread. Taste is slight banana, a bit of sourness but not as much as anticipated from aroma, doughy grain, biscuit, wheat, slight citric bitterness. Light body, full fizzy carbonation, finishes mostly dry. Perhaps a bit infected but it kinda somehow works with the style.

Draft at Mountlake Terrace brewpub. Hazier than the golden ale. Super pale ale, soft body but still a sweet hop note, however light. Not terrible.

Total Wine in Pembroke Pines, Fl. Nothing remarkable , Yes, a working in the yard ale. Refreshing, but then again so is Miller Light. Does have a funky yeast aroma.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. At home in pilsner glass. Yellowish haze pour with thin head. Slight lacing. Aroma is fairly light with little citrus and flowers along with some grains/cereal. Taste is light and smooth with light citrus, floral notes and a slight yeasty funk. Finish is dry and not very crisp. Light carbonation. Fairly meh.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub
Pale blond color. Aroma and flavor are very light; the mouthfeel is expectedly dry; ordinary bitterness; it doesn’t have malt or hop qualities.
Ale or Lager, this is uninteresting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: Pours a lighter straw color, with average clarity. The eggshell color head has good retention/lacing.
S: Lemon, bread, and a strange sweet note that reminds me of candy corn. Perhaps a touch of diacetyl too.
T: Again, there’s a note of lemon and grain on the opening. Near the finish, it almost gets a bit dish soapy in flavor. Also features hints of buttery diacetyl in parts that detracts even more. Very, very mediocre overall.
M: The carbonation is surprisingly restrained. The body is thin but weirdly sticky near the end, and it just isn’t as refreshing as it could be.
O: Eh, not very good, but not entirely undrinkable. Huge props to Jay for giving me a taste of this, but there are way too many good beers out there to bother giving this a second shot.
