vyvvy (4580) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Pours clear blonde / yellow with a white head. The aroma has pale dry crackery malt, light rich side and some brightness with floral / herbal hops. It has a fairly light sharp body with modest carbonation with a bite. The flavor starts with pale malt, bright melon, minor berries, subtle hops, clean blonde ale malt and some spiciness of hops. The finish has more spicy hops. Nice blonde ale.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2015
12oz bottle pours with a watery crystal clear gold body that supports a three (3) second ’head.’ The aroma offers up corn, sugary malts, a dash of lime and a sense of floral hops mixed with honey bread. The taste starts with prickly carbonation forcing up a modest citrusy lime and then it gets into honey, bread and sweet creamed corn.

TATE (352) - Lubec, Maine, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy and gold with a little white head. Vegetable aroma. A little bit of funk and sweetness at the beginning but it finishes light and crisp. Not sure what they were going for here. Tastes like a macrobrew and I could have gotten something similar for a lot cheaper.

Patrickctenchi (4604) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle: Pours nearly clear, yellow gold with a thin white head. Lemony grain, grassy aroma. Taste is slightly metallic, lemon-rind, grain..... Vegetal notes. Comes across a little odd-tasting, overall.

If I had reviewed this 3 years ago while drinking it on tap at Mad River over a bowl of chili after a nice sunshine-filled trip down the mountain it would have gotten a much higher rating. Today, drinking it from a bottle it tastes a lot differently than I remembered. Aroma is faint apple, citrus, metallic like a lager. Taste is bitter with strange yeast flavor and lager-beer metallic after-taste. Beer would be smooth on palate if not for medium carbonation. The last time I had this I remember it being maltier which I liked. Now it just tastes...strange?
