3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden color with a one finger head of white foam floating atop the brew. The head had a decent level of retention, fading over about a 2 min. time period to leave a decent level of fizzy looking lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall and consists mostly of a light bready smell . Along with these smells comes some very light floral and grainy smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather light overall, being heaviest of a corn and bready taste. These light flavors remain throughout the taste creating a base flavor for the brew. As the taste develops a light level of citrus and floral hop flavors come to the tongue with these taking the taste to its end and leaving a rather crisp taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super light, bordering on watery with a carbonation level that is quite high. The big carbonation is perfect for creating a light more refreshing brew, but just a bit more body may have been nice as it would have likely helped create a slightly more flavorful perception of the taste.
Overall- Sorta a standard American pale ale, light refreshing and crisp without a ton of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. A touch of grain right away, crisp and softly hoppy. Medium-bodied, soft malt and a touch of grain with a bit of hops behind it. Crisp into the finish, crackery grain with a gentle bitterness. Seems like a great summer afternoon beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer average poured average as it has a very light straw color, has some white head and leaves mild lacing on the glass. The smells great with as you get an off wheat smell that gives aways to a nice lemony/grassy smell that lingers, somewhat earthy. The taste is average as you taste a mild hoppy/wheaty flavor blended but not overwhelming. The mouthfeel is average as the beer carbonated okay and leaves a somewhat clean mouth. Overall, you can drink a lot of this beer and not feel anything, which could be dangerous.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a slight whiff of corn on the nose. Color very pale yellow. The taste is smooth though not particularly memorable. Finish not as dry as it should be.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Gamble Mill. Light mild beany hop aroma over light sweet pale malt. Clean nose. Light golden clear with thin white head. Medium-light body with heavy carbonation. Starts mild with sweet pilsner malt, beany hops, and mild bitterness. Smooth and clean, in the style of a light lager. Mild hint of sulfur at the end, and just a bit of corn, too.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is kind of like dirty grain water. Sort of skunky and like a normal light lager. Not a bad beer. It’s the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at brewpub. Pours clear golden yellow with little head. Buttered corn nose with grain. Grain and corn, mild hop presence. Nice golden ale to bridge the BMC gap.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. This seemed a little messy and all over the map for a session beer. It had too much going on to be a nice, tight, clean Golden Ale. There were strong, noticeable alcohols, bubblegum-yeasts, seltzer thinness, and heavy cooked corn. This needs some smoothing and something unique to make it a truly sessionable beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large fruity white head taht lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was dryish, tangy and fairly mild. The flavor was tart, tangy and a bit citric with a light industrial undertone. The finish was short, tangy and industrial. Light to medium body. Uninspired.
