2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a stunningly clear straw color. The head is a one finger white shade. It doesn’t have the best retention, and only leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass. Love the clarity, though.
S: The maltiness doesn’t provide much - maybe a touch of crackery malt - and the hops used are very earthy in their tones. There really isn’t much of anything on the nose, good or bad.
T: Again, there isn’t too much here. A touch of wheat and cracker opens things up - and I mean a touch. The feeble malt base allows the hops to shine through, providing some finishing earthy, mildly sour notes. I was skeptical of the farmhouse label (and doubly skeptical when taking its clarity into consideration), but at the end of the day, I do notice a touch of funkiness, if only because it’s hop-derived.
M: Certainly, it’s a crisp, dry brew, one that’s vibrantly carbonated and refreshing. I feel it’s not really interesting enough to inspire great drinkability, but it goes down easily enough.
O: I’m not sure where the ’farmhouse’ term comes from here - the yeast is way too clean/subdued. As a simple blond ale, though, it’s okay. I wouldn’t pick it up again, though.

Drank Fourth of July weekend 2016, from cousin in NJ, surprising achievement of flavor from the yeast and hop selection and combo, no additional flavoring ingredients apparently

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with decent white head. Aroma of light fruits, with hint of heat and spice. Taste of light fruit, mild malt sweetness and dash of pepper. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Has a nice fresh feel. Good summer time beer.

Very simple mild beer. Easy light summer drinking but nothing really unique or special.

Can. Decent overall beer. Average carbonation. Average hop and malt flavor. Clean finish. No outstanding qualities, but no off flavors either.

Bottle: It poured a golden color with a thin white head. The aroma was grainy with some spicy hops. The taste had some light fruit in it. It was enjoyable to drink.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden with a small white head. The aroma was grainy. The taste was crisp, bready, and some honey sweetness. It was good cold as a summer beer. As it warmed up, it wasn’t as enjoyable.

On tap at MusselBar. Okay. A bit bland really. Watery nose and weak forgetful taste. Happy trails.
