3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Rockville, MD location on 07/28/12. Served in a footed pilsner glass. Arrived at the table a clear pale gold color with a thick off-white head that left rings of lacing behind. There was a semi-sweet aroma of freshly cut grass, wheat, light citrus, and touches of corn. Went down thin and crisp with a high level of effervescence. The taste started with a little sweet cereal graininess. Mineral and yeast touches were present in the middle. There was a light hop bitterness at the end. Refreshing, but quite boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5L draft, served in a sort of oversized slightly flared Kolsch glass, at Gordon Biersch in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is a clear golden, with lots of carbonation bubbles, and a one inch white head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is soft floral and hay, simple, fresh nose. The taste is cracker sweet malt right off, the hay, and some mineral and a bit of general earthiness. Aftertaste lingers with a touch of the sweetness. The palate is light to medium bodied, featuring above average fine carbonation and the earthy mineral finish. Easy drinking, nice take on the style.

Pours a clear golden straw with a thick white head, aroma is yeast strong with pale malt to balance. Flavor is just like aroma light malt with a lot of yeast character.

Pours a pale golden with a thick white head. I’m getting a little bit of grass in this, but not a huge amount of smell. This is very easy on the palate and goes down rather nice on a hot summer day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted on tap in sampler glass. Appears a clear golden color with weak white head, no lace. Little aroma, but there are hints of grain, baking bread, refined hops, and some fruity yeast esters. A very crisp, clean and refreshing ale. Easier to drink than macro adjunct lagers.
