3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 12 oz. bottle poured to a 1/2 pint/mini Czech-pils glass showing a clear, light gold hue, with nice rising effervescence, white bubbles & cream head, and clingy waves & spots of lacing. The nose was light sweetness, soft grain/wheat, light citrus and a touch of tropical fruit as pineapple. The flavor offered moderate but fresh hop bitterness that was a little earthy, and cooperated well with a like strength of mellow malt. The bitterness lingered lightly into the finish, which was dry, crisp, and sessionably clean. A little better than light bodied due in part to lively carbonation. Refreshing!

Aroma is very nice juicy citrus, orange, tangerine, peach. The color of a dark piss with minaml head. Tasty light citrus flavor with some malt grassy ness. This exceptionally refreshing, light yet flavorful... Would have never guessed.

I like this beer based on taste and palate. It tastes light with a bit of fruit. I toally dig it. The palate is drinker friendly too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is one of those blond ales that’s more like an APA. I prefer this to the very bland concoctions some breweries offer up. It pours a perfectly clear golden with just a scant bit of fine bubbled white head. Nose is light, sweet peach and sticky pine. The peach and apricot notes come out more in the flavor profile and the pine becomes more subdued. This is a medium bodied brew w/ prickly carbonation. I think a lighter body would have suited it better but it works OK as is. This is a nice drinkable ale w/ plenty of flavor. Don’t let its supposed style turn you off.

First time...cold bottle to glass...better aroma than macro but too light in the sinus. Flavor profile to match. Hint of hops at tip of tongue but club soda at the back. Not going to make me a repeat offender.

Standard is all you can say about this. It is light and pleasant but not much else.

Golden with white head; some sediment. Surprising fruity aroma. Taste - notes of tropical fruit, wheat, yeast and light toasted malt. Much better than I was expecting. Drinkable and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz single bottle from Spirits Cross Roads. Poured a super clear gold body with an average to slightly bigger fizzy bright white head. Aroma of grains, some honey bran flakes, corn husk and veggies. The body is thinner to almost medium with stronger carbonation and a super quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a quick burst of malty grains, some dust and finishes with a touch bitter old lemon rind. Blah this is nothing special.
