1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a 12 ounce bottle - Pours a clear pale yellow with below average carbonation, and almost no lacing. The aroma is dominated adjuncts and some floral hops. First sip is surprisingly tasteless with not a lot of flavor. Some hoppy bitterness is present but on a whole this is not much going on here. A big disappointment.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: It had an interesting hazy appearance with lively visible carbonation and a deep or old gold color. The head builds up big, thick and foamy. It has a light creamy tan color with some speckles of brown yeast sediment from the bottle.
Smell: The aroma has hints of floral and earthy hops and yeast.
Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has pleasant light bready malt presence with an earthy yeast character. Also there is a slightly astringent hint of green apple and mild hops that adds a nice balance of bitterness. The hop flavor fades off nicely into the semi-dry finish. Its carbonation is good and lively with a slick easy drinking texture and light to medium body.
Notes: This is a good solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I agree with the last few reviews. This is an ok beer. 12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. Ours a cloudy golden color. Head was nice but it disappeared so quickly leaving no lace. Hoppy, not very bitter. Carbonation is nice, not over powering. Smooth taste. I would have this one again. Im wasn’t sure if I would like this one. I feel ba dabout being skeptical of local beers, but Imlearning we have a lot of nice beers in New York State. Ask me, Ill tell you all I know. Should take 2 minutes, but seriously, NY brews some nice beers. Im actually surprised that the rating is only 19. Surprises me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance: Almost clear pale gold, thick white head. Aroma: Citrusy hops dominates. Palate: Medium. Flavor: Very crisp and fresh. Hops is well balanced by a nice sweet malty back. Lemon, honey, a hint of spice. Overall: I had to knock it up a few points for being a home town brew. Not an excellent beer but very drinkable and enjoyable.
