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.

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%.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 canít 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.
