Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear golden amber color with minimal ivory bubbles around edges. Aroma is of hops, grass and citrus notes. Fizzy on the tongue. Tastes moderately bitter with a hint of lemon.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Best Enjoyed Before Date of Nov 06. Cavear: I drank this after a game of ball hockey, and just about any beer tastes good after that. Poors a light straw with quite a bit of carbonation. Little head and no lacing, but that could be due to my glassware. Light aroma of hops. Tastes to me more like an enjoyable well-balanced lager than an ale. I don’t own a lawnmower, so I will just have to label this as a good post-hockey beer. Nothing outstanding, but definitely enjoyable.

This is a real nice simple summer ale! Perfect to grab a pint and sit out on the Gritty’s deck and watch the afternoon go by in Freeport. Nice and light for the summer so it can be enjoyed all afternoon and evening.

Decent session beer. I enjoyed this sitting on top of a building on the day of the WC 2006 final game. Light color, not too complex in flavor. Slightly hoppy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Happy fourth of july. I just had a bunch of these fresh from an ice cold bath and they were delicious - big malt taste, some hops, and light color - I expected a darker appearance from such a full tasting beer. Good stuff - could be the summer beer of ’06

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body with initially thick white head. Smells malty and a bit sweet Tastes hoppier than I anticipated... Not overly strong flavor. Not the best Gritty’s has done, but still a great brewery

I was not as dissapointed in this as some on here. Highly drinkable ale, smoother than your average golden ale with a nice full creamy nose. Well done, I think.

Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells breaddy with some mild hop notes. Taste of caramel and some bittering hops but otherwise watery and disappointing.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Golden yellow color with a medium bodied head. No distinctive aroma. Overpowering hop character, with a wheat finish. Overall this beer was just too bitter for my tastes.
