Pours gold with a white head. Smells of pilsner malt and perfumy hops. Taste is perfumy and dry with hints of sugar and decent maltiness underneath. Finishes on the dry side.

Courtesy of kiefdog. This 750mL pours hazy deep gold with white head. It has soft aromatic notes of sweet light skinned fruit, some malt graininess and a sense of spice. The taste is similar with a seemingly wheat softened palate ushering up smooth sweet fruit notes like apples and pears to go along with sweet malts, a bit of graininess and subtle yeasty spices. Nice easy drinkin’ brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of coriander, plastic, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Unpleasant from start to finish...plasticky, dirty tasting, watery, blah.

Draft at the Seattle International Beerfest. Clear gold body with a thin white head. Nice lemon and grass nose. Well balanced attack. Lots of lemon and grass and gloral notes on the mid-palate. Nice and light. Not much finish. Hides the alcohol well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This golden ale pours with no head. There is an initially sweet hoppy flavor with a slightly bitter finish. A bit watery tasting at first, but the flavor intensifies as the beer warms.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled in my NB worthy glass:
Clear golden hue with a small lasting fizzy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of banana, lemon pie, grassy and herbal hops, pepper and light clove, and some musty yeast ester. The taste starts a bit fruit and citric with a bready and wheaty background. Some undertone of pepper and orange zest. The feel is refreshing and easy going. This is a good brew and it hit the spot.

Bottle. 2005 vintage in 2007. Pours a golden orange body with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet apples, pears, a bit of spices cinnamon, pepper, tangly. I really enjoyed this but fresher bottles have yet to provide the same enjoyment.

Hazy straw body with a solid, good-lacing head. Light aroma with lemon, fresh hay, a yeasty fruitiness, and mild spicing. Light in the mouth, sweet malts, lemon & orange with a tart finish. Why am I using fragments?
