2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Founders. My god. This is like what people who don't know what beer is drink... It's bright yellow, like piss, with a small white head. It's crystal clear, and ugh. The aroma is Bud Light with a little extra hoppiness. The flavor just as bad. I'm glad I don't have to try this again...

Very bitter, to the point that it mutes all other flavors. Looks like a light lager. Quite thin as well.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some slight vanilla into a hint fo orange, mainly herbal and grassy notes in there, touch of dough. Taste is a mix of dough, grass, some earth, yeast into a bit of biscuit and bread, some slight orange, finishing slightly dry, bitter.

Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks decent; a mostly transparent lighter gold with thin white lacing. Smells of mild hops and grain. Tastes like it smells, but hoppier. Very light grain and a bit of sweetness from the malt bill. Mouthfeel is medium light-bodied. Not bad, but underwhelming.

Draft @ brewery. Creamy barley malt and bready yeast flavor. Hazy pale yellow with a large white head. Creamy barley malt, bready yeast, and grassy hops flavor. Medium creamy body, moderate carbonation. Not quite sure why everyone seems to hate this one, but I liked it.

A malty pale ale that has no fruit flavor at all. Smells hoppy and malty. Poor Stark orange with a bitter finish. Had at home in a bottle

Notes from trip home in April. Draft at Founders. Pours a clear golden yellow. Average - not missing anything here with so many better options available.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kind of disappointing effort. Clear gold. Standard pale malt aroma. Slightly peppery hop presence. Very clean, but not too far from MBC fare.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Tap: Hazy, cloudy yellow & gold with a foamy white collar in place of an actual head. Aroma has a moderately low, peppery hop presence with minor ashy, leafy, & herbal characteristics. Muzzled lemon zest & orange peel... Very mild/timid overall. Taste translates similarly... more grassy, herbal, "spicy" hops on the tongue with a sharp bitterness. Stronger orange peel & lemon zest presence, but still secondary to the raw hoppage. Very lightly sweet bready malt mouth coating in the aftertaste. Not a bad beer, but really quite bland when all is said & done... Definitely left something to be desired.
