3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Light gold in color with a creamy white head. Lots of fruity yeast esters in the aroma, with distinct banana and others that are less clear. The malt flavor reminds me a lot of their golden ale, with a touch more sweetness. Lots of fruity yeasty flavors and a light bitterness. Light bodied and smooth. This is what I would be drinking in a session here; it takes the drinkability of the golden ale and makes it a hundred times more interesting.
