3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden body with a white head that had good retention and nice lace. Aroma had a soft malt note upfront with a nice floral presence to it. Reminding me of baby powder, but not in a negative way. Flavor was initially sweet. No real hops, but a nice floral flavor to it. Nice and smooth, would make a good session beer.

Dandelion? I guess thatís what this dirt/grass flavor is. Has a decent, mild, floral aroma and a light appearance. Tried at Brandonís in Lawrence in 2013.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 For everything listed as ingredients in the golden ale with pillowy head I thought there would be more complex overall flavors. Lightest bitterness, floral and earth flavors, come together just donít go anywhere for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from Traderís Joe. Pours golden with short-lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of piney hops and pale malt. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is of piney hops, biscuit malt and some weird staff. Finish is long and leafy. This brew is strange.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Total Wine In Boca Raton. American pint glass. Pours a hazy gold. Thin white head disappeared quickly. Smell is slightly funky hops with earthy overtones. Taste is bland with light hops, earth, plants and leather. Really nothing exciting about this at all.

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.
