2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lightly hazed, golden hue, well carbonated. Clean malt aroma. Light, mildly biscuity, dryish flavor, modest bitterness in the finish. Pretty simple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The second best beer I had at Glacier Brewhouse. This was a pleasant surprise. Normally I dismiss all the brewpub blondes and ambers and pales as the same old crap, but this beer definitely offered something more. Brau nailed it when saying this beer was almost Belgian in style and strength. It had a rich, buttery nose, to completely a smooth, yeasty, strong flavor that really went down well. Pour was the perfect shade of blonde with just a hint of opacity that wasnt quite bud or not quite a hefe. Really looked great in the glass, and tasted real great in the mouth.

On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Dark yellow beer. Really strong sweetness with a hint of high alcohol? Damn near a Belgian-type ale. I’d think that most people would run from it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold with slight haze. Not much head. Slightly hoppy aroma. Shockingly malty body (I’m guessing Maris Otter) and light, crisp hops. Keeps it from being boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at the Resurection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Medium golden appearance with a decent, white thick head, good lacing. Has a slighlty buttery aroma with some vegetable accents. Same buttery essence carries over to the flavor with a bit of bit of biscuity, malty sweetness. Mouthfeel was decent. Probably brewed for the masses. A decent, but not stellar effort.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Draft: Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage, AK) This is one light flavored beer, perfect for the tourist crowd that packs the Glacier Brewhouse; Slightly sweet, with little malt or hops, it tastes and smells like a cheap American light beer; Light body, of course, and smooth on the palate … like water; Hardly any nose, and nothing descriptive; Pale yellow color; Whitish head is mostly just large bubbles and fades fast, but leaves a solid coating of lacing on the glass, which is the only positive thing I can say about this beer

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden and extremely clear with a thinnish head. Crisp carbonation and a pale mouthfeel. Light malts with hints of grains and cereal. Gentle hop aromas, mostly herbs. Very mild bitterness; slightly drying. OK beer for a bland style.
