3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light straw color. Small head. Slight malt and hop aroma. Light bitterness. Very mild flavors. Slight hop flavor, slight malt flavor. Some graininess. Light body. An easy drinking beer. Not stunning, but certainly not bad.

IMO kind of a waste of time to drink. It's so boring, and tastes like a lot of other piss color beers. I just had a Corona before this, and basically (of course there are differences), they taste the same.

A light yellow color with virtually no head. It has a hoppy and fruity aroma and a hoppy taste.

Pours a very pale yellow color. Has a very sweet malty aroma. Kinda bitter, very malty taste. Like most Golden ales there isnít much going on.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden yellow liquid. Snow white head pours extra thick and quickly disapates, but never subsides. Very highly carbonated. Little aroma and a bit thin on the palate. Slightly puckering (astringent)that has a lingering aftertaste.

Excellent golden ale by Mendochino!!! Crisp, slightly hoppy, slightly citrus flavor, cloudy gold in color. And yes, I can taste the hazelnut. I couldn't identify what "that" was until I read the description on here.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours light yellow, somewhat cloudy, and no head. Carbonation is very lively. Aroma of alcohol, bandage, medicine, lemon, acidity, some Belgian yeast characteristics (hmm??). Flavor is very crisp and refreshing, a sweet lemon freshness, a little acidic by not metallic in the finish, a little medicine in the flavor also. Body is medium/thin with some underlying creamy oilyness. I guess if I was told there is hazelnut in the flavor I can find it in a oily form, in the finish. A pretty strange brew. "I have to pee so bad I can taste it." You know I donít care for the aroma of this beer, but it actually tastes pretty good and is more complicated that it first appears.

Beautiful golden color, small, white head which is quite lacy. Lots of citrusy notes. Delicious aftertaste. Quite enjoyable, to be sure.

light in color and body / not very hoppy. little bit of sweet malt flavor. might be good on a hot day - but generally not robust enough for me

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden blonde in color with a thin short lived head. The aroma was sweet with hints of fruit and peaches. The taste was very one dimensional with slight hints of lemon and citrus. Finished slightly bitter with some lemon peel to it. Good by the pool when its hot but thats about it.
