1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Drinkable, but very forgetable. Average at best. Reminded me of Coors Light, that I used to drink as a newbie beer drinker,and used to think that was great, a bit older and wiser now, this beer is nothing special.

Pleasant gold color with a quick white head and light lace. Excellent example of golden ale. Clean bodied with sweet start and gentle bite at the end. Hints of spice. A solid pour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden pour with a fluffy white head and lace. Aroma of light malt and not much more. Flavor of semi sweet malt with a bit of a cloying sweet finish. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation. I think this may be one of the best golden ales I’ve had. It didn’t have much on the aroma but pretty flavorful for a golden.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
No head whatsoever; Light apple aroma, no hops presence; medium body, flavors more apple, rather dry, grainy, light metallic bitterness, light residual grain. Drinkable but entierly lacking in character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden colour with a sticky white head. Aroma is softly fruity. Light apricot and a bit of soft spicy hoppiness. Lean pale malt and a bit of grassy/herbal hops over the light crackery malts. Nice soft aroma with a little bit of fruitiness. This sort of reminds me of Coopers Sparkling Ale, with the mix of soft apple and apricot fruitiness and light spicy hoppiness. Soft palate... really quite tasty.

Sweet bread aroma with a light twang of hops. Lightly sweet flavor with a light bitter hop finish. Some light nutmeg in the aftertaste. Kinda interesting and not bad at all.
