Light fruity aroma, some corn, grass, floral hops, citrus, hazy to cloudy golden, nice creamy off-white head, stays a while, some lacing, nice combination of light bittersweet and light fruity sourness, light to medium body, creamy texture, taste continues in the finish maybe a bit more on the dry (bitter) side, very mild beer.

Serving: from tap at Vostok Dumpling House. Aroma: heavy, floral hops. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with very good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Cloudy, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly bitter initial flavor and moderately sour, grapefruit finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Great aroma, interesting taste.

radagast83 (6943) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12 oz can. Poured a clear yellow color, small white head. Aroma is a light hop and malt. Flavor is light hop, sweetness. This was a nice sweet, refreshing beer.

reebtogi (5460) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some thin spotty lacing. Aroma is light fruits, light malts and mild hops. Taste is light fruits with some underlying malt sweetness and a mild citrus and grass hop bitterness. A decent and drinkable pale ale, but there are certainly better ones out there.

cblado (298) - Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Pearly head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet, with hints of honey. Some malt, very little hop aroma. Palate is thin. Overall this is a very drinkable ale, but unremarkable.

yespr (39411) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2012
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is smooth citrusy and light peachy. Bitter, smooth fruity and crisp hoppy peachy. Bitter and lasting lingering fruity finish.

after4ever (7400) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2011
12 oz. Well, a 12-oz bottle right now, but probably a couple dozen other times in the last 20 years, too. Why Iíve not rated this heretofore is a bit of a mystery to me. But here we go. Pours a hazy burnished dark gold with a thin little splotchy film of suds on top. Intermittent drippy lace. Mild grassy corn nutty nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, nuts, and grass on the mid palate. Very mild and easy drinking APA...probably not hoppy enough to really be an APA, but thatís alright. Good little beer.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Hazy gold, frothy beige head. Aroma of grass, lemon, brett, this beer is funky Taste also has some brett funk that has some puckering sourness. Not to say that itís un-enjoyable. I just donít think itís right for this beer. Dry finish. Overall not a great beer, or true to style, but still somewhat good.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap at the brewery 8-4-10. Pours a hazy deep gold color with a big hop nose, typical pacific NW hops - citrusy, grapefruit. Clean malt profile with a big bitter backbone and big hop aroma. Lighter body makes the hops really stick out, maybe a little too much. Balanced definitely toward the bitter side. Dry finish without much sweetness.

jercraigs (9439) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-03. Lightly hazy orange body, small creamy off-white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is modestly bitter throughout, light citrus hops (tropical, hints at floral, lemon), mild lingering tangerine. Mild malt is a bit odd/grainy and does not always play nicely with the hops. Aroma of muted citrus seeds, off-putting overtones that are not quite bile/sweat, more likely an odd variation on resiny/leafy hop character. Average to light palate. Odd. On tap at Hales, Seattle
