3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Nice looking golden ale. Refreshingly yellow pour with a nice white head. Interesting aroma that I loved...lemony, honeyey. The flavor is crisp and with a nice character from the honey and lemon jam going on. I really liked this one a lot, I wish I can find it down here in NY.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is lemon and honey, although faint on both counts. Palate is average with low carbonation. Taste is a bland mix of grain, honey and just a hint of hops. Kind of a bland, boring brew. At least it was only $2.99.

20th Anniversary Limited Release! 22oz brown glass pry-top. Date stamp on neck 060209.
Appearance: Poured into a Long Trail Imperial pint. Thick bone white stiff head on top of a crystal clear amber beer.
Nose: Some sweet honey notes, wild flowers, light biscuity note.
Palate: Medium-bodied and sweet with honey up front. The honey fades into English ale-like malt flavors, and rounds out. The finish picks up an odd bitter note, doesn’t seem like hop bitterness, more earthy and twig-like bitterness.
Notes: An easy going summer sipper. Nothing fancy, but fairly smooth and drinkable. FFO Magic Hat’s Hocus Pocus.
