3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a can at Harry Caray’s in Chicago. Dark gold color, brief pillow head, and the citrusy hop aroma. The malt was of a light cereal type to balance. A good steady drinker, but nothing real special.

Tap - small foamy head, pale straw color, mild malty aroma and flavor, VERY dry mouthfeel - too much, not a fan of this one

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a can. Bright golden in color. I get a strong aroma of oranges and perhaps something else citrus. Upon drinking, it tastes like it smells, although it is kind of on the watery side. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz bonus can from TheAlum, thanks Adam. Poured a slightly cloudy gold underneath a small spongey white head. Aroma is dirty green veggies, rustic bread and some dried out grains. Body is thin to average with stingy carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is very grainy, dried out grain husks, cereal, kale. Meh, nothing special here but I’m always happy for a new rate, thanks Adam.

Galway Arms, Chicago tap ($5.50): Pours an orange/yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is citrusy hops, with some bread and grass. Taste is somewhat bitter. The citrus again makes a healthy appearance. The amlt backbone is correctly proportioned. Overall, this is a very well-balanced beer, and is something that I could probably drink all day.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear golden. A white head. A big bitter tart nose is a surprise. The flavor is lighter and those hops are noted. Corn and bitterness. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Dan Journal #493. Tasted 1/12/12. 16oz Can. Pours bright golden with a hazy body. Spiraling white head. Aromas of cereal grains and bright citrus fruit. Mildly grassy. Medium bodied and rather fresh. There’s a bright citrus blast, but it is short lived and a lingering chalky malt flavor is all that’s left. Definitely easy drinking with a decent palate. Subtle green, grassy bitterness in the finish, but still faint on the hop bill. Solid astringency that adds to the zesty citrus flavors. Nicely done!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, gold pour with bright, white head. Nice scent of pine and moderate taste of hops makes it an easy, pleasant drink. (Can)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy lemonade yellow with a nice frothy white head. Lots of hop character on the nose with several herbal, grassy, and citrus notes. Taste is hoppy with light malt and a nice bitter, dry finish. Tasty beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.
