3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Our Ale 208 is crisp with a light malt body and subtle, citrusy, hop character. It’s brewed with 100% Idaho grown grain, hops and pure Idaho spring water. The package imagery is inspired by and pays tribute to Idaho’s rich agricultural heritage and its diverse and beautiful vistas. The name comes directly from the 208 area code that encompasses all of Idaho."
Growler picked up at Grand Teton’s 25th Anniversary party at Bittercreek last night.
Pours a very clear light golden with a nice long lasting white head.
Nose shows a very balanced light grainy maltiness playing against a light citrus hoppiness.
Flavor mirrors the nose perfectly... very drinkable... No flaws.
Light/body with a decent carbonation... again, very quaffable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, light gold in the glass, nice, soft, foamy head tops the brew. Gorgeous lacing on the glass, Nice and sticky ringing the glass with each sip. Grassy and grainy, the aroma is lightened by a lemony accent. Carbonation is lively, and the body is light, carrying the flavors easily. The palate is nice, everything balanced evenly and comfortably, and creating a nice easy finish. Not amazing, and a little bit more lemon than I like, but not a bad idea for a really hot summer day.

It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of bready malts, some grass, floral notes and toast. The taste was of malts, grassy hops, grapefruit and medium carbonation. Thanks Hayduke.

12 oz bottle from Super 1 in CDA, ID. Brewed on 1/6/14--a little old, maybe. Aroma is pineapple, caramel malt. Pours hazy golden with a diminishing white head. Taste is sweet and grainy, maybe a little past its prime; finishes bitter. Thin body, high carbonation. Dull. I wish I had a fresher bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared wit Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Sharing a beer with Dave this way is always the highlight of my day. Pours a hazy gold with a white head and nice lacing on the glass. Nose is floral and grass hops on a lot of malts. Medium in body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor shows citrus, and some fruit. Finish is lightly bitter. This is a really easy beer to drink and very refreshing. I love good favorable session beers. This one is a winner.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. I rolled the bottle and globules of sediment released. The beer is hazy golden and wore an off white layer that never completely left. In the aroma I got malt first and tropical fruit second. Lemon and grass, too. The first sip is more bitter than expected. Tart citrus fruit, lemon grass, and a bit of pine. Just a hint of spiciness. This is very pleasant and interesting, especially for the 4.8% ABV.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy gold with a nice white head and a little sticky lacing towards the top half of the glass. Sweet flower aroma with a little lemon as well as a trace of urine. Not bad flavor - balanced with a not-too-sweet, malty finish. Keeping it real in the 208 baby!
