3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a clear golden-copepr color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down to a thin layer leaving behind some lacing on the glass.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts and honey. There is also a bit of citrus hops in the background that come through.
T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malts and some honey sweetness. Through the middle, a bit of hops and some deeper malt comes through. The finish is a mix of sweet malt and honey that linger.
M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels fairly smooth, but a touch empty. The finish has some honey sweetness that lingers.
D - Very drinkable. Could have used a bit more punch and comes off a bit empty. It does not feel watery or thin though.

(Bottle) I usually like Long Trialís offerings, but this one left me flat, figuratively and literally. Wondering if I had an old bottle. (All brewers should date them). Traces of lemon in flavor. Not much noteworthy. Come on Long Trail, youíre better than this!

The aroma is honey, wheat, cereal grains, toasted. The appearance is a nice translucent amber, white head. The flavor is just like the aroma, with less honey. The finish is cereal grains, pine and resin hops. Medium in body. OK.

12 oz bottle from Migdon drank at Ryanís 30th. Clear golden body under a large fluffy white head. Aroma and flavor of grains, cereal and honey. Easy drinking and a good training wheels beer to get people away from BMC.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Date on the side: 022111. A piss yellow pour with a skim of an off-white head. The refreshing aroma consists of grains, corn, a touch of lemon, and a faint hint of caramel in the background. Goes down thin, crisp, and as refreshing as it smells. Lightly sweet upfront in the taste with some cereal graininess, a touch of caramel, and a hint of honey. Some lemon and a dash of pepper in the slightly drying finish. A thirst quencher.

Well this is just not very good. Aroma is stale honey, crackers. Sweet caramel. Some danky hops, with a light spice. Dry, bitter finish with more sweet sugar honey-like substance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apperance: clear medium-dark gold, with a one-finger white head; some nice lacing. Aroma: crackery malts, hay, grass, honey, flowers, hint of citrus. Taste: starts with a bit of pie crust, then floral and citrus notes, with grassy tones underneath. Finish: honey dryness and light citrus hops fade gently, and the crackery malts make a surprise reappearance. Notes: Looked and smelled like it would be very sweet, but was pleasantly subdued in flavors, with a decent balance and the honey bringing a floral dryness rather than overly sweet tones. Palate was light. Drinkable, but on the forgettable side.

Pours gold with a little head. Sweet honey taste, this is a light beer with a smooth finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
a pint at my local. Was worried this would be a super sweet girl beer but was happy with how subdued it really was. Cloudy yellow color with no head. The smell was not so much honey as grassy and a pollen smell, like walking through a field. The taste was a light malt. A little plain but might enjoy it more once it gets warmer outdoors.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Exceptionally thin, I think, the thinnest beer Iíve ever had from an American microbrewery. Pours a watery pinkish amber. Flat: almost no head. Overall though, pleasing. Fairly aromatic, with tones of apricot, fairly hoppy, a bit grassy. The honey barely comes through at all: itís not sweet, and there are no more floral qualities than an average beer of this hoppiness. Moderate bitterness, little sourness, dry finish: good flavor overall. I still canít get over the lack of body of this beer, itís so watery to me, I canít quite make sense of it. I love the flavor though. I can see this really hitting the spot on a hot summer day, or if youíre rather full from a big meal, and you want a light beer but want something with a lot of flavor. But I think this beer would be a lot better with richer carbonation and just a little bit more body.
