2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from local tap a reputable place here in Richmond, VA where Hardywood is brewed.
Nose is basic - little hops, little grass.
Appearance is actually nice - golden with a white puffy head - pours clear.
Taste - not so much. A little bitter without the character necessary to justify it. Watery and light - way too light. No heaps of yeast, no snap of hops - just a light beer flavor where a real beer flavor belongs. Can taste a little of the brewing station or something akin to metal. Iím not a fan. The finish was bad enough for me not to finish the beer. I almost never donít finish a beer I am served.

Hazy gold appearance with a small white head and spotty lacing. Sweet, yeasty aroma with fruit and spices in the background. Flavors of bread, tropical fruit , spices and a low keyed hop presence. Soft bitter aftertaste stays focused on the spiciness. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. (Shenandoah Hops) Staunton, VA.
Cloudy pale yellow colour with a small white head.
Mild aroma of yeast and apples.
The flavour is mild bitterness, apples and hints of yeast.
It clearly is a interpretation of Belgian Blonde. More flavour and more body would help a lot.

Tap. I decidedly like the bottles sample I had a lot better for its depth, but sadly wasnít able to rate it. Hazy bright light gold, nice lacing. Citrus, hay, slight earth and white grape and pear sourness in the aroma. Flavor is very similar, touch bitter and has a nice refreshing finish. Lighter body with tingly carbonation. Good brew.

On tap at Sharkys. Opaque pale golden with big white head. Aroma is dirty socks/yeast, light body, well carbonated, and good thin small-bubble lacing. Taste is grainy, malty, and some yeasty. Nothing to write home about.
