3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frothy foam head atop a bronzed body. Burst of orange citrus dominates the nose, though some grains eke in. Wonderful freshly milled pale grains dominate the palate with citrus-accented hops lightly playing off of it. A solid pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours bright golden yellow with thin white head that lingers well. Aroma is slightly spicy fresh hops. Taste is crisp dry malt with earthy grassy bitter hops. Body is a little thin, but it doesn’t taste like a 4% beer. This would be perfect on a hot summer day. Certainly a departure from past SBW beers.

Can. Recieved as an extra. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Fruity hop aroma. Medium mouthfeel with carbonation. Nice flavors of peach and apricot. Nice level of bitterness as well that lingers after the initial drink. It’s not bad. Organic too!

Can from riversideak. This is awesome. Aroma is tons of citrus hops, grass and floral. Taste matches the aroma. Incredibly good, sessionable and delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Whatever. 4.5% with great flavor. Not rare enough to achieve a high score i guess. Remember the Hill Farmstead boners at the last tasting? This is better and easier to get. Anyways... Nose of citrus, a little crackery malt, grass, touch of dank. Clean and hoppy nose. Very nice. Pours golden, nice clarity, thin whispy head, soft lace. Flavors of crackery dry malt with a good dose of citrus dank and grass. Chewy hop finish. Dry quenching with lingering citrus notes. Nice carbonation. Great refesher.

Can. Golden color and little head. Pleasant and full grassy and grapefruit aroma. Upfront this is delightfully hoppy and malty. However, the flavor quickly disappears and finishes with grassy bitterness. Still a refreshing and great sessionable hoppy offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours clear, straw colored golden with white head that dissipates fast. Fresh, weedy hop aroma, with tropical citrus, dank, and spicy bread/biscuit. Pizza crust - there’s a smell reminiscent of pizza dough I swear. Taste of grass/hay, wheat, dry graininess, biscuit, cracker. Short finish with crisp, light bitterness to seal the deal. Pretty dry overall. Pizza crust is still there. Lively carbonation, light body, texture a little on the thin side.
Overall: Refreshing, thirst-quenching and and drinkable. Nice. Makes me wish I had a lawn to mow.
