COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a light bodied and mildly hoppy ale brewed with 2-row malted barley, crystal and a special Ashburne malted barley. Golding and Cascade hops are used to provide the balanced palate for this fine session beer.

Draft at the brewery
Orange and yellow in color. Mildly hoppy, bitter, tinny. Some wet dog and spoiled vegetable flavors, though... Difficult to drink, but at least has a good grassy hop nose, smelling oily like a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle: Golden, minor haze, mediocre frothy white head, decent lacing, moderate carbonation.   Minor hop, citrus, subtle graininess on the nose.   Fairly hop assertive start, mellows quickly.   Grainy aspect is barely noticeable on the tongue.   Very slight diacytl emerges at the finish, but not enough to detract.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Soft citrus like bitterness lingers.   Pretty good stuff this is!   Easily sessionable at 3.8%.

Hazy gold with off white head. Fresh hop nose. Soft hop profile,slightly citric, light but lingering hop end. Good lace

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Straw colour. Light citric ale with breezy pale malt notes. Fresh pale malt character - soft with mild citrus notes. Moderate bitterness. Great balance, very fresh-tasting, wonderfully refreshing. Not billed as such, but an excellent English-style golden ale.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Light golden and clear with minimal head. Aroma was lightly malty with some citrus and a little herbs. Has some caramel sweetness but perfectly balanced with the hops. Refreshing, clean and crisp, and well built ale.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Very light pale with next to no body, little finish and only faint hints of hops and honey. The summer beer crowd may love this, but I felt it was simply too little of everything. Even with a dulled-down flavor I can’t find the necessary components that would make this very appealing, the hops are typical cascade and although the malt may be unique, it was almost imperceptible. Perhaps I had a bunk batch.

(draft) Crystal clear apple juice body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, light herby. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some caramel, lemon. Light and crisp body. This would make a great session beer!
