3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pour is clear with fine-grained carbonation and a durable white head. A thin partial coat of sediment was left on the bottom of the bottle.
Surprised by the moderately intense and mainly hoppy aroma. . Nice balance of hops and malt, leaving this surprisingly hoppy brew a touch sweet at the start and mildly bitter in the finish and aftertaste. Dandelion, unless specially treated, is very bitter too, so the absence of a smack of bitterness is surprising.
M: Crisp; medium-light body with medium+ carbonation; a touch of dryness.
Overall: A tasty and distinct ale worth seeking out, and worth selecting when a summertime refresher is desired thatís bolder than usual.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy yellow/gold with frothy white head; a good amount of lacing. Smells fairly yeasty; also has an aroma of hay but itís pretty weak. Flavor is similar to a grassy pale ale. Not very bitter overall, but has a bitter finish. Lively carbonation and light body.

Pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, bready malt with some floral hoppy notes. Flavor is grainy, grassy, wheat like tartness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a hazy light gold with decent white head. Big floral (dandelion perhaps), grains, earthy. If I didnít know that this was brewed with dandelions before drinking I am certain that I would not of said that it tasted like dandelions. I would have said weird floral thing. Nonetheless, I knew prior to drinking and it tasted like weird floral dandelions with some spiceness. Not bad, refreshing, but not something I would search out again and buy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-04-29. Crisp yellow body, small white head. Modest bitterness, light pale malt, and light notes of what I might or might not identify as dandelion if I didnít know what it was. Light lemon touches. Smooth average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Quaffable, light overall but just enough flavour to be kind of enjoyable. Sampled at the brewery

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
P: Cloudy golden apricot appearance with bubbly carbonation and a airy off white head.
S: Seems odd but smells like diluted Victoriaís Secret Love Spell body spray...my wife wears it thatís how I know.
T/M: Honey suckles, lots if floral flavor, pale malt, salt and herbed tea. Faint peach and Bartlett pears hindered in the bitter floral base. There is a touch of metallic towards the end of the swallow. Nice subtly acidic mouthfeel with bubbly prickliness.
O: A nice floral ale that really brings the floral to play. I really like this but probably not one I would seek out.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet and mostly of apples. Flavor is also sweet, a little too sweet. More apple flavor without a great hop balance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Crossroads. Poured a hazy light nectar gold body with a fuller fluffy bright white head. Aroma was bland, mostly dusty grains and for some reason smokey bread. Body is actually very pleasant, fuller mouthfeel with average carbonation and an almost creamy feel overall. Flavor is a bit more bolstered up than the aroma but that ainít ssaying much. All grains with a touch of honey topped bread. Drinkable after a day of errands and yard work, If I had another beer before this one I most likely would have scored it lower.
