2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.39 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottling Date: MAR 13 13.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, pale yellow body with a smallish, thin layer of white suds.
Smell: Grainy-scented nose edged with waterlogged biscuits and the faintest, far-off hint of honey. A little flower petal, a little sweaty citrus rind.
Taste: Washed out biscuit-toned malts with a thin, thin honeyed veneer to it. Some husky, grainy astringency noted. Modest floral, faintly citrusy hops with a bit of bitterness aided by the graininess and crisp carbonation. Dry, bitterish, crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: What the hell is going on here?

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is a little alarming, that of hoppy body oder with lemon deodorant. Some sizzle, acceptable. Yes that first olfactory of yer mates mild BO comes thru on every swig, weird and even more than most ipa. Taste does have some lemon in there, a little like oily furniture polish.What else can be said? Same with finish.Perhaps was expecting something a little more refershing for a golden ale. Probably more like a medium mild apa.

Yellow golden color... Aroma is crisp, citrus fruits.... Flavor is light and crisp, refreshing citrus fruitiness... No real hop notes, but extremely nice for a hot Waikiki day...

12 oz bottle packaged 2.26.13. Pours a beautiful, bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, subtle hops, and movie theater popcorn butter. Less diacetyl in the flavor, with more of the bready maltiness and fruity hops coming through. Light and crisp, but a little flawed.
