2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours slightly hazy straw gold with a 1 finger, creamy white head that fades to a ring pretty quickly. Aroma is wet hay, dried grass, light fermentation, light floral/planty hops. Flavor is sweet grass, hay, thistle, light cereal grain, baby corn, a little apple peel and a nondistinct fruity note. Finishes fairly clean with light apple, a hint of bitterness and some light earthy mineral notes. Palate is light bodied, dry and crisp, with a medium carbonation level. Pretty good for the style, though it is pretty weak and somewhat basic, it doesnít have the odd, greasy palate that alot of Golden Ales seem to have.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) in a Shaker at 41į. Color is a pale gold with a light haze. Carbonation is very active with a small soft white head. Aroma is sweet with a little gain and maybe some vanilla. Taste is soft and sweet. Starting with a light body it goes down smooth. Finish has a light corn taste with a hint of hop spice and a very light bitterness. After taste is clean with a soft feel. Not bad for a basic Golden Ale.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden color, low carbonation, thin white head that fades to nothing. Aroma has a hay note, light sweetness, faint apple and Saaz notes. Flavor is overall sweet with some apple and grape notes, honey and overall bland. Density is okay but the carbonation is not there to help this brew out. Overall could be a bit better if the carb was higher but just a bland beer as a whole.

Gift from my Wisconsin hook up. Thanks Jamie. I did not enjoy this, I needed the rating. Watery and thin. Not this brewerys best.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle in a taster pack. 5.2%. What on earth is this? Label says farmhouse ale, and I pour a cloudy yellow witbier looking creature into a glass, with a cap that disappears far too quickly. Aroma is barley, butter, and corn. Taste is sickly sweet, apples, grains and mild honey. No yeast and no hops leave this beer without a stylistic foot to stand on. Not that itís worth defining...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle 9/8/09-Pours a hazy orangish yellow with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of butter and spices. Taste of the same with a bit of sweetness and honey along with more butter and spices. This light bodied beer is not bad but definitely not a farmhouse.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a dark yellow color with a small white head that practically disappears. Aroma is sweet, with touches of caramel, honey. Itís relatively plain, but it was perhaps one of the more interesting beers that was at my disposal when I was consuming beverages. Certainly wasnít "farmhouse" which Iím eternally grateful (not a fan of that style) - oh well, most people are more harsh when theyíre rating towards a perceived style instead of the beers merits (or lack thereof).

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: Pours a light, pale yellow body with a real thin, white head. Even some energetic glass swirling canít seem to awaken it. Ah well.
Smell: Light, dull maltiness with some near non-existant floral hints. Then, thereís the butter. Yes, friends, butter. A real "what have I gotten myself into" aroma.
Taste: Light pale maltiness with some sweet cereal hints with, to my extreme dismay, a taste of unsalted butter hot on its heels. Where one might look for some pleasant fruity esters, youíll find only odd, unnatural vegetal hints. Faint floral hops with a low, low, low bitterness. Then, sadly, itís back to the pat of butter until the vaguely sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Low carbonation. Limp, thin mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Bad dog! Very VERY Bad dog! Thatís right, Lazy Mutt, look ashamed! A beer to steer well clear of.
