3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark yellowish gold. Nose is light wheat and honey. Hints of vanilla in there and some malt. Taste is great! Very sweet which might put people off. A lot of malt and honey. Sweet but with a nice hoppy signature. Body is probably the best part. Very creamy and effervescent without being thick and undrinkable. A great beer!

Bottle. Pours a clear golden. Small white head. Aroma is mild. Flavor is sweet grain/corn. No aftertaste. Nothing bad about this, but nothing really jumps out either. An adequate session-able beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/21/2016. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that last. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of wheat, cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of wheat, cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wheat, cracker, biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly drying after the finish. Very clean for an ale, minimal fruity yeast presence. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.1%. Overall this is a very nice Blonde ale. All around nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 7-23-2015 at Acme Bar and Grill, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer is presented with a very small white head, hazy pale yellow body, very little carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is yeast, citrus hops, grassy, and malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A drinkable beer but there is not much to it for aroma and flavor.

On tap at brewpub. Quite creamy. A bit full flavored for a cream ale but that’s not a bad thing. A bit bland but a really solid lighter ale.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sized head of quickly diminishing
finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The aroma was mild with a slight malt hop note. The palate was tingly from start to finish with a slight astringency in the finish. The flavor was mostly malt hop with a crisp hoppy aftertaste. An OK beer for perhaps a session at the bar.

The Traktor pours a mostly clear dark orange yellow with a thin ivory head that does not last long. The aroma is lemon, citrus and wheat. The flavor is also lemon, citrus and wheat with an added hint of caramel. Overall this is decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. Notes of vanilla yogurt are the first thing I noticed on the nose with a light banana, lemon, and a decent amount of grains. It pours a hazy, murky orange with a soft whitish head. The head dissipates slowly, but eventually dwindles down to a thin ring with a wispy surface and it leaves behind an above average amount of thin web lace. It’s a well balanced medium / medium-light bitter and sweet - maybe slightly more sweet than bitter. The light bodied beer has an oily texture with a soft carbonation (maybe lightly fizzy). There’s notes of caramel, grass, and grapefruit at the finish with a light yogurt tartness to it. The tartness lingers along with grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. It’s dry and astringent.
