2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml. bottle. Orange tinged golden color with a reasonable white head. Aroma is semi-baked bread with a bit of noble hop. Body is near medium with coarse carbonation that bites lightly. Flavor is bread and a decent amount of grassy hop. Arguably crisp and clean. Good mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a lightly hazy gold color with nice white head. The nose is crisp and toasty with a light grassy hop note. A bit thin on the mouthfeel and body but it has a creamy light malt note with a crisp snappy hop finish. Very light easy drinker, about as light as I’ll venture and still enjoy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice bright golden pour with a two finger white foamy head that disapated rather quick and left good lacing. Bread notes in the aroma with a hint of grass. A mild crisp flavor and mellow balance between initial sweetness and mild bitterness. A good warm weather beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with a soft white head. Bready nose, honey character, and a soft dry hopping that gives a mild grassy floral character. The malts were a bit watery on the palate, crispness was lacking, and the flavor was a bit lifeless.
