Not a great golden ale, the flavor is really thin, reedy, and sweet. Not the best representation of this style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very mildly hazy yellow body with a minimal white head. Nose has mild citrus notes and some hay. Taste is quite bitter with a dry, crisp finish. Medium carbonation and palate. A pleasant light beer for hot days.

Citrusy...crisp...yummy. I really like the taste of this. I could really drink quite a few of these. Very refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
the aroma is hoppy and fruity, with shades of pine cones and tropical fruits... the taste is smooth, with notes of pine needles, spicy herbs and citrus... bright hopping... dry, sweet and bitter aftertaste...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy white head that falls slowly with some light lacing. Color is a very clear light golden. Mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: mild citrus(lemon), grass, and hay. Some light toasted barley.
Mouthfeel: light, fairly crisp, with a an easy dry finish.
Flavor: not too complex, but more malt forward than the aroma. Caramel, bread crust, a bit of lemon, and grass.
Overall: a good brew, not outstanding, but very enjoyable.

Disclaimer: Drinking this while relaxing on a lazy Saturday in Kauai so am incredibly biased/vulnerable to think piss takes like sweet bliss...
A nice beer for a hot day or for light beer drinkers who want some flavor to their beer. There is enough variation in palate that ranges from slight hoppy notes to fruity notes. Mostly a plain tasty ale but the added hints make it highly drinkable. If you had to drink one beer at dinner this wouldn't be satisfying but if you like taste in your lighter beers this one has enough to be a great choice. Great aroma.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Citrus hops aroma: lemony grapefruit dominates, with some base malt backbone. Almost clear gold under a lasting white flannel blanket. Lemony bitter flavour that lacks depth bit does not offend. Light body, medium carbonation, fairly crisp.

Floral scent from the beginning. Light citrus scents and taste makes this a very good beer to have with foods!

Pours clear with no head. Smooth but little taste. Minimum hops and flavor. Overall not a great ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy medium golden body with a white head that ends up as a partially covering film, good lacing. Hoppy and rather strong aroma of sweet tropical fruits, I get peach, pineapple and mango. Quite strong flavour of tropical fruits and citric fruits. Light sweet taste with a very light bitter and rather short finish. Light, thin and a bit watery on the palate, but crisp and refreshing. A nice and easy-to-drink brew if you like the aroma and flavour of hops, but don’t like bitter beers.
