Pretty mediocre. Clear dark yellow-gold. Tastes like a very light and thin wheat beer. Thin head. Fizzy. Not memorable.

On tap at guardian games. Straw yellow and massive frothy white cap. Aroma of funky socks, soggy leaves, rotting banana. Taste is sweet, and a bit sour/bitter. Odd. Light carbonation, and clean mouthfeel.

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Light fruit aroma - very light. Med body. Flavor is a little acidic, perhaps citrus, with a wheat note. Clean, but not very interesting. Finishes fairly bitter.

22 oz bomber from Fred Meyer in S.Salem.
Pours a nice clear sunny golden colour with a largish frothy white head.
Aroma is nice and fresh bready,caramel malts with a touch of citric hops.
Taste very balanced bready,caramel touch of nuts,lemony hops very nice really
Really great mouthfeel fizzy yet complex ( for style ) semi-dry finish.
Very nice drinkable blond would be great in six-pack!

Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Light haze on this paleish gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Light papery pale malt. Forensic trace of citrus. Papery finish. Frankly a bit rubbish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Light citrus and hay is joined by earthy, sandy angles in this mildly tart, balanced Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the pale straw blond.
-The mouthfeel is lean and the carbonation softly effervescent.
-Hop aroma is not very enticing.
-This doesn’t feel too fresh.
