3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at redlight redlight. Though the nose (a rather muddled and less than distinct but not entirely unenticing hoppiness) and the appearance (very very light) are not all that impressive, the flavor (a mild but definite and tasty piny hop bite) and a very refreshing crispness more than redeem this beer. Maybe a better summer ale than spring ale, but the springs here in Florida (low 80’s in Feb. (Christ, I know!)) are so hot and much like summer in many other places that I’m looking forward to drinking a lot of this on muggy afternoons.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
