2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Philadelphia Airport. A very unexciting light lager. Pales traw in colour with a tight white head and a high level of carbonation; grainy aroma; sweet grainy taste with a trace of citrus; and a sweet finish with some damp cardboard in place of hops.

Not sure where the farmhouse idea comes into this. Pretty much just a blonde lagery beer. Tap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden into the glass, with a minimal head that leaves nothing but carbonation. The nose is of grass, hay, light dank notes. Flavors have lemon, some wheat, grassiness, a hint of corn or so. The mouthfeel is seltzery and overactive with carbonation; however, if one is looking for a good lawnmower brew, this light-bodied offering is certainly better than the macro offerings found in one’s local grocer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle with BB 9-22-14 into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a tiny white foam head. The head fades superfast leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite light overall with some smells of wheat and biscuit along with some lighter smells of a fruit sweetness which are mainly of a pear and lemon aroma. Along with these smells comes a very light grassy smell as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit taste and light fruit flavor of peach and pear. The peach and pear fruit flavors are later lost, being replaced by some other sweet flavors of a caramel and light candied sugar nature. Along with the transition in the sweet, there is also a transition in the malt with more wheat flavors and a cracker flavor coming to the tongue at the expense of the biscuit. With a light grassy and lemon flavor that comes to the tongue at the end of the taste, it leaves one with a muddled malty and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – For the low abv. of the brew, the body is average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather low. The moderate thickness is fairly decent for the mix of malt, sweet, and light grass flavors of the brew, but the lower carbonation is not really appropriate for the brew, taking away the crispness and refreshing character that the beer should have.
Overall – Ah… A very lack luster beer. Nothing was all that great.. A rather weak look and very little aroma with the flavors never really find a balance and the body was a bit off for me. Not one I will likely do again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale straw color with a finger and half white head. Not much smell but clean wheat. Tastes like wheat with a hint of lemon. Watery. Pretty good for hot days but it's a average but better than the macro beers kind of beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold with an average sized white head.
Aroma of light hops, grain some yeast.
The flavor is lightly sweet with some light hop bitterness. Sessionable blond ale. I didn’t get any sourness so I don’t know what the farm house is about.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice lawnmower beer---however, it had a very distinctive "watery" aftertaste. I would’ve rated it much higher if this aftertaste / late palate didn’t follow. Clean in appearance. Nice blonde color.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: MIldly hazy golden body with a firm white head.
Aroma: The aroma is very clean and mild with a hint of malt sweetness and a hint of lemon, nothing else of note. Not offensive, but not tantalizing.
Taste: The flavor is crisp and clean, lager-esque, which is nice to see an ale with those qualities. The flavor has a mild malty sweetness and a hint of lemon and peppery spice, but overall very clean and mild. It doesn’t impress but it is drinkable.
Palate: Light and crisp with high carbonation.
Overall: This is barely a step above a mass lager in all honesty. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s definitely not a "farmhouse ale" as they call it. This is a crisp and enjoyable beer available at a decent price. Nothing more, nothing less.
