Bottle poured into glass. This was a quick pull off the shelf since it was so cheap. The taste has hints of slight hops and salt in the flavor. It was quite hard to swallow to be frank.

nice slightly cloudy golden brew with orange highlights and aroma of hop and coriander. nice hop vine taste with rye and coriander kind of like rusty tasting. perhaps some white pepper and soapy with nice caustic carbonation. it does have an alcohol warmth and this beer is simply charming.

Carry Maris otter aroma. Catty . Hikes looks good. Bad aromas burn off. Manure. Tangy .

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop: Had an aroma of grains and cereal and smelled similar to a wort boil of high quality fresh barley malt yet still has a faint background of grassy hops that made this seem rather appetizing to drink. Appearance was a natural golden blonde color with a topping of frothy head that retreated almost instantly. The drink is crisp with a clean taste of grained barely malt along with those grassy notes of hops that came through the nose. One of the better blond ales I have tasted from a bottle. Finish is gentle and smooth on the palate like a pilsner style sometime is.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a golden amber with a medium white head. Light, slightly sweet aroma with fruity notes and a touch of floral/grassy hops. Lightly sweet flavor with caramel and grassy/floral hop notes. Thin and a little bland but not bad for a session beer. Finish is a light sweetness and light grassy hop bitterness.

Poured from the bottle. Pours slightly cloudy. Aroma is grainy and of cereal. Also tastes this way. Blah, I don’t think I will finish the whole bottle, too much better stuff in my fridge.

Overall not bad. Not the best blonde ever, not even blonde, it was an amber honestly. It was ok. Need to concentrate on what they want to produce, it was decent.
