3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, oh, let’s go ahead and say it, blonde body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Lightly sweetish, bready malts alongside some modest notes of earthy, lemony hops.
Taste: Pale malts with a touch of bready graininess and honeylike sweetness. The hops provide some fruity lemon as well as some earthy, spicy aspects. Mild, subtle bitterness. Finishes dry and smooth with that same mild bitterness sliding into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A pleasant, refreshing, easy-drinking blonde with a reasonable amount of alcohol. Just as it should be.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy light lemon-yellow. Very light carbonation stream up from the bottom. Smells of lemon dominate with appearances of hops and a bit of bread. Nothing really stand out though.
Taste of lemon and a slightly bitter hops are perfectly blended together. Also great malt, grain, and yeast flavors to be found in this one. The hop flavor is consistent throughout and gives it a earthy flavor.A slightly bitter start and a smooth and dry finish. I was very impressed by this beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I found this at the Party Source outside Cincinnati for $11.99. It’s not a bad price though I wish it were available in bottled form so I could have tried the other three releases as well. I may go back at some point for one of the others whenever I am in the region again.
Aroma / Appearance - A one finger bleach white head danced on the surface of a golden transparent body. Wheat and honey crisp form a basic but enjoyable presence.
Flavor / Palate - Honey whole bread has been liquefied and converted to an alcoholic form. Fading fast it does provide a short bit of flavor before dissipating. This is the definition of a lawn mower beer - light on the palate but with enough complexity to make it worth having a few.
