1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear straw yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, grain, cereal into a bit of slight grass or herbal hops, touch of minerality. Taste is a mix of biscuit, cereal, and some herbal hops, very slight sweet honey into a bit of grainy husk, finishing dry.

yeah...EP is all over the map. lots of sub par beers and a few nice ones too, but this was crap. light in color (and everything else) for an amber. unpleasant generic aroma and flavor. nothing redeeming."

Kind of an ugly pale amber-golden with a white head. Aroma of bready malt and slight grassy hops. Taste is typical blond with a minimal hop presence in the finish. Medium bodied and smooth.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Orange-tan color, certainly closer to an Amber ( as the bottle accurately describes it) than a Golden Ale. Soapy, patchy head. Relatively straightforward smooth caramel malt tones with a touch of amber underneath. Has some similarities to a Cream Ale at times with its creamy orange-vanilla aroma and flavor. Not much hop presence, which works well in this case. Not exactly world-class, but certainly smooth session Ale.
