Long Trail Pollenator is a crystal clear golden ale with a thick, dense, white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a fruity, grassy aroma with a touch of funk. It’s medium bodied, soft and a little slick. The finish is a little chalky. It’s lightly flavored and very well balanced. A light, green bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. There’s a little bit of lemon, perhaps. It’s very easy drinking.

This beer was pretty bland and tasted like sugar water. The only thing that it did well was get me excited to have a hoppy beer to wash the taste out.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle/12oz - Catching up on some old ratings from notes for earlier this winter. Pours a golden yellow in color with a medium bright white head. Aroma is of nutty wheat, some bready yeasts and honey. Flavor is malty with grassy hops and some of the honey. Finish is medium bitter and lingers a bit. Easy drinking...

RGDave (113) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap, Old Mill Tavern, Chester NJ. Clean lines. Beer pours yellow-golden with a lively head, and a nutty wheat aroma. Attack is smooth, body is relatively thin, but with a nice bitter aftertaste - easy-drinking spring offering. This went well with tavern fare.

keepersj12 (2560) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Spring is coming. This pours a clear light amber with a white head. Lack of an aroma keeps the marks low. What is there is a bit of malt and some bread. The flavor is crisp and clean, nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. A good beer for the warm weather.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale lightly toasted malts, faint hops and even fainter honey. The taste is dry biscuity malts followed by a bit of honey and caramel and a spicy hop finish. Light body. Decent.
