3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Clear and golden with a bit of white haze. White foam has good retention. The aroma is light with honey, with some candy. First sip is a sharp, tart, bitter flavor. There is grain and some spice in the flavor with that honey. Some light noble hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a ever so slightly hazy bright golden with a respectable white head. Aroma is malt and mown grass. Refreshing taste of sweet pale malt, biscuits, honey and mild yet noticable hoppiness. Another fine product from the new brewing end of Excel Bottling Company which has a long history of quality soft beverages. This is a summer quencher to be sure.
