3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden leading to copper pour with a tight white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Aroma has a hint of vanilla and butterscotch. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some vanilla hints, a bit of nuttiness, some buttery notes and just a hint of spearmint in the back end. Mouthfeel is crisp. Good session starter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Clear golden / orange color. Good thin off-white head, leaves decent lace. Impressive hoppy aroma - lemongrass, some citrus, light floral. Good light caramel malt, some honey, little toastiness. Good mix of bitter and sweetness in the finish. Light body, smooth light carbonation, very drinkable. More dry texture. This is a very tasty light ale - especially now since it just hit the shelves. This probably wouldn’t age well, especially with these clear glass bottles

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse. Clear bottle and a huge blast of skunk when the bottle opens. Pours a pale golden color with a large sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Skunky aroma with spicy hops and pale malts. The taste is grainy malts, corn and herbal hops. Almost acrid. Medium bodied. Really a poor effort here.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are grain, butter and light caramel with lemon. Grapefruit and apricot with a marmalade character. Flavours are bittersweet lemon marmalade with grapefruit juice and peppery notes. Base grain with grassy, spritzy notes. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a pleasant brew that has a substantial enough golden malt character to work with the spring ivy and flowery hop character this beer exudes. a seltzery carbonation softened a touch with oil. great with tree nuts this beer has a fresh springwater sense to it with no notice of the lower abv.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. This one is a bit tastier, bitter and heavier than most other summer day beers, but the flavours and aroma of nature makes it well-suited for a day in the sun after all.
