3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kumiyama Aeon Mall liquor shop. Good, barny sort of stink, pine nose. Pretty clear straw; lots of carb. Sweaty, dirty hoop initial; mid has piney notes and caramel; nice finish and then in fades very quickly, like a big wave spent. Very refreshing. But way over the top in aroma and hoppiness for the style. Still, I like it.

Pours pale yellow into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Sour hay and caramel aromas. Dry with sweet honey and bread upfront turning sharp in the sour hay finish.

Pours a golden yellow with mid-sized head. Some hop aroma, but mainly a bready, malt nose. Flavor is a nice smooth combo of malt with some hoppy notes present. Nicely balanced with a sweetness to it and a smooth finish. Not bad, not bad at all.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head. Smells like a hoppy blond with a touch of doughiness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Well, it's definitely a golden ale. Fruity aroma, very light in hops but has a nice crispness to the finish. Overall a light beer, but I imagine it would be quite enjoyable on a hot summer day.

Straw-colored with a thin head that quickly dissipates to a lacy head. Fairly good hop aroma. Tastes of light malt, pine needles and a hint of coconut. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation. Very dry finish, but perhaps too dry. This would be a decent beer to sip on the beach or at a backyard barbecue.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Fruity hop aroma and so is the taste. Ok malt backbone. An average beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours medium gold with a transient white head. Aroma is quite fruity - perhaps even a hint of resin. Near med body. It’s lightly bready, and there is an initial decent fruit hop flavor - but it sort of drops off and gets overly bready. Despite that it finishes towards dry, and the hop never really goes away. It’s just way too light - but if it were amped up it might be fabulous.
