4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - This beer has a clear golden body with a 3/4 inch tight white head. Small patches of lacing.
S - Grassy hops with notes of straw, oranges, honey, floral spice on top of a sweet malt base.
T - Starts off with a green grassy bitterness that turns to candy grapefruit sweetness. A prevalent malt backbone adds character that blends and balances all the green together. There’s some tartness towards the end that adds good dimension. Finishes dry and spicy.
M - Light to medium body average carbonation.
One of the best I’ve had of this style. Love the hop profile and the malt is actually what makes this a winner. The burps taste like leafy green hops. Top of the line.

Golden pour with a white head. Lots of cattymess, pine, herbal. Strong bitterness. The cattymess and bitterness seem overwhelming. Typical I enjoy bitter styles but this seems putrid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Herbal, grassy, mountain river, earthy aromas. Herbal, earthy, cracker, hoppy flavors. A hop forward golden ale, but not too hop forward, still feels very much like a golden. I enjoy the New Belgium throwbacks. Even though this isn’t a favorite of mine, this would be a good camping beer. Could easily drink quite a few.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very mild slightly sweet aroma, pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Very interesting flavor, with a touch of sweetness from the wheat, and a hint of spice from the rye. These combine with earthy hop notes to come together quite well. Medium bodied, with a slightly slick mouthfeel from the oats. A very nice change of pace from the Marzens and pumpkin beers that usually come out for Autumn.

what a nice surprise, especially being a sale beer! aroma is very well balanced light citrus and earthy hops and malt. soft on the palate, and tasty, even though the hops come through a touch more in the aroma than the smell. Very very nice seasonal for just over a buck a bottle. recomended. 10/18/09-had on tap for the first time. even softer on the palate...near perfect body for the style, and still very tasty and aromatic."
