Pours a darker clear golden color with white head. Citrus, floral and biscuit notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean. Very nicely done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
A delicious beer that is very crisp and refreshing. Nice flavor on the initial sip, but no weird aftertaste that lingers on the tounge.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pretty gold with a medium sized white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is of hops. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is hop forward with a malt backbone. Slightly bitter on the finish. Hopheads will like this one. Pairs well with chicken off the grill.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearence - Pours to a nice rocky head light amber color. Aroma - Strong spruce that covers any malt aromas. Flavor - Piney very dry and bitter the hops override any malt flavor. Mouth feel - astringent. Overall - It’s has to strong of a piney hop profile for my tastes. Not very drinkable.

pours a golden to amber color with a nice fluffy head. the aroma is caramel, flowers, citrus, and like fresh east kent hops. The flavor is floral up front followed by caramel, and a slight bitter finish. I dont get any of the spicyness or pepper. Overall this is refreshing.

Interesting aroma. Could tell it was brewed with a good bit of hops but stronger sweet malt flavor. Hard to place what beer style this is. Had on Superbowl night from variety pack
