Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

transfer from BA review on 7-24-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a two finger billowy white head. The head fades moderately fast leaving a nice level of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma was a nice balance of lemon citrus and cracker notes. The lemon was the strongest of the aromas but other aromas of a light pear and graininess were there as well giving a refreshing smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and grainy flavor with some lemon flavors upfront. As the flavors advance they gain a grassy and rather earthy hop flavor. As the taste moves to its end the earthiness gets stronger and with a slight increase in the lemon a lightly bitter and crisp taste is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light with a carbonation level that is a little above average. The two are good for the citrus and earthy flavors of the brew as well as for creating a more crisp feel to match the lower abv of the beer.
Overall – The lightly bitter grass, lemon, and earth flavors at the end of the taste was actually rather nice for the brew and made for a nice drinking summer beer with a bit more earthiness then most.

Pours a light yellow with no head or lacing. The aroma is of rich yeasty wheat rolls with little hops. The taste is of bitter pine sap and wheat. Yummy yummy!

It looked ok coming to the table at the CharlesTown Casino. But the first ara left me unhopeful. New Castle Brown being my least favorite beer ever I was hoping this would be palatable. Barely. I think they made a blonde as close to their brown as possible. Pass

Clear gold pour,thick white head. Nose is light roasted malt, hint of hops. More sweet than bitter. Middle is, for lack of a better term, syrup sweet. Finish has just a hint of drying hop bitterness. Decent summer offering.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was basically a light to semi-dark yellow/blondish color. Light transparency allows some carbonation to be seen rising at a moderate pace. There was some light lacing trickling into the beer.
The smell had an earthy dry light nutty aroma to start but ended up letting in a fairly aromatic fruitiness surrounding it.
The taste was mainly sweet with a fair allocation of the fruitiness to coincide nicely. There wasn’t any aftertaste nor finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The sessionability was there. The carbonation was good.
Overall, I say this was a decent golden/blonde it’s just not a standout.

Clear gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus and toasted malts. Light biscuit flavor with a slight citrus finish. Light and easy going. The citric notes were a bit too intense without the required bitterness to help it fit in. A bit sweet in the back end. Decent.

12 oz bottle. Orange and clear appearance with a small, frothy white head and light, lingering lacing. Pretty mild aroma, toasted malts, light hops and light toffee notes. Similar flavor, crisp, lightly bitter and easy to drink. Average body. Not too bad.

Dark golden body, good white head and nice lacing. Strong aroma of malt, some hoppy grass aroma and cardboard. Taste is dry, somewhat bitter with very strong malt notes almost whiskey like.
