3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells and tastes of mildly bitter hops with a lightly sweet but thin backbone. Average on the palate. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with a white head, nice lacing. The aroma is mostly malt and bread. A little bit of citrus. The flavor starts sweet and is balanced by peppery hops. The finish is very crisp and clean. Well done.

This poured an attractive pale gold color with a small white head. Nose of butter crackers and citrus hops. This is a crisp, refreshing beer with nice bready malts and an assertive hop bitterness. Long hop resin finish. Nice light hoppy beer for the season.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5/13/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Very clear light orange/golden pour with a decent off-white head that eventually fades to a small ring, but sticks pretty damn well and laces plenty. Faint, light hop aroma, mostly dank, pine, and bitter citrus when it shows through. Light pale malt flavor, biscuity, and similar hop aspects as the aroma led on but with a touch more bitterness. Not bad.
