2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Bel-Air in Woodland. My bottle has a red label that states that a portion of the proceeds would be donated to guide dogs. The aroma on this has some sweet honey malt characteristics. Light cereal. Not much else. Perhaps a little grassiness. Transparent golden-orange body with a small, off-yellow head. I like the hue on this. Starts slightly metallic, before some cereal maltiness and light honey malt sweetness becomes apparent in the middle. I’m also getting a trace of diacetyl in this. Finishes with a very lightly bitter, spicy hop kick. Decent. Could use a little more in the aroma.

22oz bottle, Total Wine, Alpharetta. Deep golden color, thin white head. Aroma of honey malts, bread. Tastes of floral hops, pale malts, corn, honey, and a touch of butter. Light to medium bodied. A nice session brew to get you warmed up for a fuller beer. (3297)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light golden color with a tiny head that quickly disappears. The nose is quite sweet, plenty of honey, some pine, syrup. The taste is light honey, light maltiness with a watery finish. This beer lacks a bit in the flavor department. Active carbonation. Light body. Overall, not a great beer.
