Draft sample. Poured hazy yellow color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate lemon citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium lemon oil flavor with a medium lemon finish of moderate duration. Interesting drinkable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 On draught at Bodega. This brew is a clear golden color with a thin white head that burns away to a film eventually. Thin strings of lacing. Citrusy aroma with some grain notes. Light body with a zesty lemon and orange flavor along with some sweet doughy malt and hops in the background. The finish is crisp and lemony with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Deceptively simple and tasty brew all around. Above average.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy light yellow color, thin white head. Little lace. Very interesting and unique spice aroma that I don’t recognize, definitely funky. Kind of like the fresh lemon scent you would expect from a cleaning product, but not in a bad way. Very unique, and powerful in the nose. Stronger, but crisp carbonation, very drinkable, lighter body. Light sweet taste, some spice. Really good flavor for a session ale.

Draft @ Jackie O’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head that disappears rather quickly. The aroma has some doughy malt, mild to moderate lemony citrus, herbal with a light funky quality. The flavor ha doughy malt, mild sweetness, lemon citrus and herbal notes. An easy drinking golden ale with a twist; a true session type beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a growler, thanks to grownfool (and photokut). Pours gold, bubbly, moderate loose head. Smells lemony, and herbal, with a touch of cardboard. Taste is...I’m gonna be honest, I’m not 100% sure I know what verbena tastes like, but there is a weird, woody/herbal notes in this, mixed with lemon. Is that it? Anyway, a bit odd, but tasty.

On tap at Bodega. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Funky aroma with sweet malt, lemon and a bit of a spicy character, almost like ginger but not quite. Flavor is malty, citrusy and a bit funky with that same almost ginger character before a bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Jackie O’s. Served in a sampler glass, and followed up with a few pints out of the growler we took back to the campground. Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white head and plenty of lacing. The nose carries hints of pepper alongside fresh zest and a bit of an herbal character. Lemon is nice, and leads the way into a very crisp and clean body. Smooth bitterness and dry herbal character. Super refreshing and easy to drink. The whole growler was gone before we knew it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Appearance is a light gold with a crisp white head of foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity. The lemon doesn’t really come through like I thought it would, but the fruitiness does shine. I get a bit of zest in the taste, but other than that, this beer is just a nice, sweet, golden ale. Great beer for just sitting on the porch drinking a few beers, but what beer isn’t good for that? Maybe I’m too easy to please.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Approximately 4 ounce sample at the Jackie O’s Public House in Athens, Ohio. The pour is clear golden with a white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles line the glass. The aroma is grain, lemon zest and a vegetal earthiness. The taste is the vegetal, the lemon peel and zest, and then a fairly muddled yeastiness. The palate is medium bodied with a lower carbonation level and a lingering herbal yeast.
