Aroma is citrus, lemon and mild sweetness and funk. The flavor is lemon/citrus, fruit, mild sweetness, fruit peel and a medium tart/tangy finish.

bottle - Pours hazy and very pale yellow with a big, billowy white, lasting head. It takes awhile to get anything in the aroma other than that particular over-carbonated smell. Finally some mild malt and a slightly fruity smell come through. The flavor is of grainy malt and mild, bittering hops. Itís light bodied and drinkable enough, but itís not really my thing.

Too pale, even for a golden ale, and the overall flavor (aroma, taste and palate) lacks complexity. I found it interesting and different, but wonít be buying more or recommending it to friends.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 25, 2014
This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a head of all foam finely sized bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and a creamy thick lacing. The mild aroma was old ale and musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bitter malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of bitter old ale citrus crisp and malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

tmongoose (1301) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 23, 2014
26oz can shared. Poured slightly hazy yellow with a grassy straw almost baby piss diaper aroma. Flavor is straw, bread, yeast, and corn. Not a fan plain and simple.

edgallow (2076) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2014
16 oz draft pours a hazy golden with a white heat. Aroma of malts, bread and grass. Taste is malts and dough.

Pours a hazy straw golden with a thick eggshell cap that settles slowly and leaves some foamy, dripping lace. Subtle nose involves dashes of sweet malt (or corn), light spice, and mint. Lightly sweet, lighter-ly bitter. Light body, softer carb, a touch oily, with a twangy husky light veggie finish. Poundable? Sure. My style? Not at all. Personally, not sure why they went away from the Upside Down Blonde in favor of this aside from trying to hit an even wider audience (light beer drinkers, people who fear any and all hops). Lame.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample at Twenty Tap. Clear yellow-gold color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and a bit of citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

DrSilverworm (6370) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2014
16oz can, from Big Red Liquors in Indianapolis. Clear pale yellow color. Thin white head. Leaves good, thicker spreads of lace. Medium body. Good, smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Very smooth and easy drinking. Hammer Down, indeed. Good bready white cracker malt. Nice spicy grassy hop aroma, some citrus. Good bigger bitter taste, nice bit of zest. Light sweet. Awesome golden ale. Pretty much exactly what Iím looking for for this style. Super refreshing and satisfying.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells doughy and yeasty with a touch of hops. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel thatís fairly light on the palate. A bit of tropical fruit too. Mild, but pleasant.
