Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is mixed grass/herb/citrus. Med body. Thereís a creaminess in the mouthfeel. Iím thinking thereís some Nelson here, but itís also subtly floral and citric. Pretty nice, though not intense.

marcus (6592) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 5, 2012

500 ml from Bruisin Ales. Orange body. Nice aroma. Lightly hopped. After reading label, not really sure what the collaboration is.

phaleslu (6609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2011
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-gold with a small, uneven white head. Aroma of pale malts, crackers, toasted sugar, and herbal and grassy hops. The flavor is bitter grassy hops, some soap, minerals, and pale malts- something seemed off, based on what I experienced in the aroma. Light-bodied, with a crisp, dry mouthfeel with high carbonation and a mineral finish. Could be better, but not bad for an easy sipper, and solid for the style. Honestly- and this may be unfair- I thought this would have a much bigger hop character.

Ratman197 (9961) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, skunk bud, pine and grapefruit zest. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthines and light pinbe with a crisp dry lingering modeatly bitter finish.

crossovert (7582) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2011
It pours a clear, bubbly gold with a creamy white head. The smell is decent some citrus but some muddled malts. The flavor is okay. It tastes like a mash up. Some nice lemony bitterness, some herbal character, but the malt bill is pretty crappy. It tastes like a run of the ill pale ale. I guess that might be expected.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2011
500 ml bottle. A clear golden pour that has lots of very active carbonation rising. A gold tinted fluffy head leaves some lacing. The nose is grain and soft fruit. The hops are tasted first and they are floral and citrus. There is also some grass. Light bitterness comes through. A bit of biscuit. This is nice light drinking.
