3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. A cloudy dark golden beer with a huge, creamy and persistent white head. The aroma has a medium maltiness and hoppiness, with notes of dried fruits, some bread, grass and citric fruits. The flavour has a medium sweetness, a light acidity and bitterness. Well balanced. Medium body, lively carbonation, not a very long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. A good beer, maybe a bit light in body and not too complex, but quenching and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Pour is darker than you’d expect for a blond, with a pale amber quality to it and some lively carbonation (the kind with surprisingly large bubbles and a prickly head). Nose is sweet and yeasty, with soft fruits and bready notes. Mouthfeel is a tad on the thin side, but the flavor is fresh and ripe with some pleasing dry notes on the finish.

On tap at the Red in Santa Cruz. Golden with reddish hue and a nice large off-white head. Nose of subtle fruitts, mostly bananas and yeast. Sweet to the taste, but not too sweet, with a nice dry finish. Very good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Dullish orange pour with a minor head. Very nice doughy, yeasty aroma, but hints of steamed broccoli are weird. Perfectly dry, fermenting bread flavor, with a mixed greens/salad kind of crispy, fresh finish. Excellent! This is the kind of beer that reminds me why I love beer.

On tap at Red Restaurant in Santa Cruz. Golden color with a nice white head. Aroma of bready malt, yeast, and spices. Flavor is sweet malt, spices, honey, yeast, and some floral hops on the finish. Palate is somewhat lively but more or less fits style expectations.
