This is a sort of pilsner-ish blond ale and pretty good. A little bit fruity but clean overall w/ some nutty malt and a touch of noble hop herbal character. Carbonation is vigorous w/o being biting, which lightens the mouthfeel and keeps it interesting on the palate. This isnít a show stopper but a good beer nonetheless.

lots of carbonation and some definite fruit on the nose. surprising amount of hops on the tongue. finish is fairly bitter. This seems like a light-bodied pale ale trying to masqurade as a summer ale - seems even hoppier than a typical Kolsch. Incorrect categorization maybe?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. 2013 version, rustic quay and "Gearyís" in playful neon on label. Best edition in years -- turned up the malt a touch. Pours a shade darker than blond. Nose is tropical and grassy with a little roasty hint. Palate is smooth and creamy, yet light. Nice play of citrus and tropical fruit with a tiny hint of nuts and banana. The mention of banana, many, myself included, would find a little frightening. Donít fret. It works perfectly into the background of the complexity.

Aroma is sweetish malts and a perfumed element. The flavor is medium grain/malt sweetness and a mildly tart fruit finish. Iím guessing it was out of season/somewhat old, might have gotten a few points up if fresh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This has quite possibly one of the worst beer labels Iíve ever seen. Itís so bad that I dreaded reviewing this beer... it has been sitting in my review queue fridge for way too long. The only reason Iím drinking this now is because Iím getting tired of seeing the bottle sitting in the fridge. Fortunately, it looks much better in a glass than it does in the bottle.
It pours a very light amber color, is heavily carbonated, producing a dense (but thin) white head. Its aroma is sweet, as expected from the color, but very fruit-like, and reminds me of a fruity Belgian ale. Not bad, really. In the mouth, though, the flavor needs a lot of work. The caramel and fruit sweetness lures you in to a metallic bite thatís somewhat uncomfortable. Once it warms up itís actually a little better, and actually a little creamy. Thereís just not that much about this beer thatís enjoyable, and even for a summer beer my palate would be frequently gasping for air in-between sips. Unimpressive, but overall not unbearably offensive.

Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a smallish head. The nose is a combination of skunky and metallic, which is really off-putting. Itís a super malty and almost sour beer, almost acidic. Itís really unpleasant, IMHO.
