I'm not getting the fuss here. Am I missing something? Aside from a barely there sour note, I'm not really getting any dandelion here. Otherwise it's ok..

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, wort), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of butter.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Raw malt and diacetyl in the nose, thin and watery in the mouth with a dirty aftertaste...what more could you want? Embarrassing.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery and a little earthy, with grass, lightly sweet malts, and the slightest acidity. Moderately dry finish. Pretty damn good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Loose bottle from Marianoís. Sweet, tickly nose. I poured straight into a Sam Adams glass to let the foam kick up, Find a few notes of a tart beer, a spongy head, and a light body like a pale cider. Slight tartness, more like a Bellís Oarsman than anything, but a slightly denser pale malt body. Dandelion just seems to lend a slight bit of extra sweetness. A little gassy and bubbly.

Served to me as "dandelion beer" which is nice but nothing incredible. Floral, decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle pours a golden with an enormous amount of suspended floaties and a big, fluffy white head. Aroma stings the nostrils. Definitely floral, but earthy in a weird way. Flavor is very earthy, a bit sour. Kinda like a light Berliner Weisse. Also finishes slightly metallic, which isnít very nice. Still wouldnít be bad on a hot day while grilling.

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.
