3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 1/9/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a good English pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12oz bottle. Pours the color of urine and doesn’t taste much better. Absolutely no head. Might have gotten a bad bottle but whatever the case this just wasn’t any good. Ended up down the drain.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/8/15
Aroma: The aroma is lightly malty, with bread, grain, dough, a little dirt, and some light grass
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color with small, fizzy head that dissipates quickly
Flavor: The flavor is similar, doughy, with some dirt and grassy flavor and a little mustiness
Palate: The body is light-medium, overly fizzy, which hurts the drinkability, with a lightly dry finish
Eh. This one is okay. There’s some solid components here. Not a great mouthfeel. It goes down alright, but overall, it just isn’t a particularly interesting beer.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Liquor Mart in Boulder. Pours a slightly hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Lemon, corn, sweet grain in the nose with a little bit of bitterness. Twangy, bland, sweet, corny flavor. A little bit of grape and bubble gum. Moderate high sweetness. Grassy herbal notes. Not that good. Pass.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4/26/15. 12oz bottle from a Publix in Gainesville. Clear golden pour with a very small head that’s gone quick and leaves no lacing whatsoever. Weird spritzy aroma, like Sprite and vodka with some flower petals. Plain flavor, a bit weird, papery, tastes like Magic Hat. Not sure how to explain that, but it’s true. Meh.

Golden ale that is wrong to force it. Gotta be yourself and this is a golden brown light beer with great taste.
