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.

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

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear golden color with a ring of white lace. Aroma and flavor of malt with sweetness. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Poured a golden amber in color with a white head that evaprated quickly. Aroma was light with some yeastiness. Flavor was not to distinctive and light. Some maltiness with a bit of fruity hops thrown in. Drinkable...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draft) Pours a nice gold, with white head, some lacing. Aroma slight banana. Mouthfeel dry. Tastes light and wheaty, finishes dry. Not super thirst-quenching for a summer beer.
