2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Yellow color, thin white ring. Aroma of sweet malt with, ODDLY enough, dandelion flowers. The scent of flowers is very faint in the nose, you really have to look for it! Very easy to drink, earthy character. Pale malts flavor in the finish, along with some flavors of hops, and an unfamiliar grassy taste. Definitely some sort of bitter flower/plant flavors are lingering in there. Some bread flavors in a dry finish. If the was not marketed as a Dandelion Ale, I probably would have thought it was an off flavored Magic Hat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Pours a hazy yellow with a frothy white head that sticks around for awhile. The smell is sweet, malty, with some yeast and floral notes. It has a nice sweet background that is harder to describe but like the smell of a nice summer night. Taste is not nearly as sweet as the smell would have indicated, the flavor starts malty but moves into a unique bitterness, that does not taste like hops. I can only assume this is from the dandelion as this is my first dandelion beer. The bitter sticks around through the aftertaste, and gets stronger, almost to the point of a lip smacking bitter. The mouthfeel is nice a crisp light beer, smooth and easy to drink. If the bottle didn’t display the dandelion I would have had a hard time guessing that one. No overpowering flavors, a nice enjoyable beer, overall it is well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with minimal white head. Overall some garden notes of dirt and flowers with a moderate level of diacetyl. Some flower sweetness and some faint presence of lactic acid. Light body. Diacetyl really gets in the way here.

Tastes ok, not very impressive, short sweet taste. Not much too it. Interesting attempt though. Some floral sweetness that is a little bit unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a somewhat hazy, golden appearance with a cream colored head. Very floral, big herbal, grainy straw, a bit earthy aroma. Flavor is just a bit tart with just a touch of fruit and plenty of grainy malts and oats. Floral, a bit spicy, and pretty tasty. I’m tempted to pick up a sixer of this, which is a great complement from a fucken ticker.
