2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
6 pack of 16 oz cans for $9.49. Somewhat hazy golden ale. Thick mouthfeel indicates the use of a high percentage of caramel malts. Hops are restrained. "Blond ale brewed with spices"? Not really getting any spice notes here. Drinkable enough, but not something to seek out. Not sure why they put their "crossover" beer (to introduce the macro beer drinker to micro beer) in a can first. If they have caught the Surly bug, then why not package the Shining Dawn first? Pretty good beer at a decent price, but I am not sure how much of it they will sell after the initial introductory boom is over.

Keg @ Lucette. Gold pour with a large white head. Strong coriander, plenty of herbs. Summery citrus and a bit of yeasty must. Flavor is somewhat herbal. Peppery finish. Mild citrus. Quite dry. Decent.

16oz can. Clear golden color with a light white head. Sweet grain and malt aroma. Light body. Malt flavor with a little sweetness. Easy drinking but not much flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can
A nice summer beer lives up to all expectations. A solid recipe leads to a top notch summer drinker from a brewery I look forward to revisiting in the future. Lucette should have a promising future if they continue to release beers like this.
Aroma / Appearance - A bronze semitransparent core and agitated ivory head pair well. White pepper, lemons, and yeast emit the smell of white wine. Hay bales after harvest add a late summer texture.
Flavor / Palate - White pepper, yeast, and hay lend an earthy base to a light sessionable mouthfeel. The down to earth bitterness comes a few seconds later. The only failing occurs towards the end when the spiciness takes on a harsh nature. Overall though it provides enough pleasure to be easy to finish. If you are looking for a solid local you could fare worse than the Farmerís Daughter.

Golden color with white head that doesn't last long. Fruity and light biscuit aromas and taste. Light bodied. Slight spice. Refreshing and quite enjoyable.

Aroma is spices, pale malts and hints of tea and heat. The flavor is spices, bread, tea, pale malts and a smooth finish with very little/almost no bitterness throughout.

Tap at boneyard. Gold. Nice clean smell . Subtle flavor overall, finish could be better. Pretty average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour into a pint glass at Boneyard. Color is a light golden. Little to no lacing or head. Taste leans heavy on the malt with little regard for hops. Easier to drink than expected. Not a lot of complexity here. Worth a brief hookup but probably not a farmers daughter worth pursuing.

[Tap] Pours a deep yellow color with a faint haze to it. Big pillow of foamy white head and lots of CO2 bubbles. Aroma is mostly of cereal grains, with the spice notes being more fleeting. Crisp and smooth flavor profile includes some grass, wheat, mild honey and hints of yeast. A decent brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Skyview, thanks Bob! Hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma of toasted malts, grains, light honey, coriander and by power of suggestion I believe I smell grains of paradise. Taste is mild and sudsy with grains, honey and some malt and coriander underneath.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - Pours light amber with a thin foamy white head. Light, fruity nose, with the coriander peeking through. Lightly grainy and fairly dry. Not a whole lot on the nose. Taste is pretty mellow. Lightly fruity malt and more coriander. A touch of yeast and some herbal hopping on the finish. Pretty watery, though a step up from BMC. Would be a decent lawnmower or session beer. Big fluffy body, though very thin.
