3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice blond ale. Typically I hate English beer, but this was a nice surprise.Aroma was pretty weak. Light grain, grass and malt. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger head and plenty of rising bubbles. Taste was delicious. Sure, it wasn’t very big but for this ABV packed a ton of flavor. The flavor was mostly cold bubbly water in the front but a nice light malt and toffee backbone. Toffee?? In this light of a beer?? Very odd but nicely refreshing. A little caramel in there is well. Not sweet in the least. Nice carbonation. Will drink again

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Skunk, pecan, grassy noble hops, and a touch of honey on the aroma. Clear golden, thick head. Pecan initially, honey at midpalate, peanut butter finish. Light body, low bitterness. Interesting transitions and very nutty for the style. Fair amount of character. Lower quality than a typical British golden ale, but not really that far off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, with slight lacing, over a clear, light gold (SRM 4) body.....nose is toasted malts with cereal, biscuit, toast, light herbal tones from the hops, no esters....taste is cereal forward, with toast biscuit notes, dry throughout, light herbal hop and final mild bitterness, no esters.....mouth feel, medium body, minimal acid, crisp finish. Balance throughout is towards the gentle malt back bone, with toasted cereal dominating. The hops are a soft balance to the malts. This is a crisp, very light refreshing beer. The style is mild, light, and minimally hopped, with a low alcohol level. As such it will be poorly rated by the average taster. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pale gold pour with a 2 finger, soapy to creamy bright white head. Aroma is sweet cereal, a little apple, butter, fruity and spicy hops. Flavor is butter and cereal most of the way until a finish that folds some spicy hops, fruit and a little earthy foliage into the mix. Light to medium body, slightly slick on entry, light, spritzy carbonation and off dry, sort of mineral water finish. Meh.

12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: two fingers white head, golden yellow color, clear, Aroma: molasses, barnyard, cereal, light floral. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation, lasting light bitter finish, slightly dry. Taste: nice molasses sweetness into a slight tannin bitterness that lasts for a few seconds. Overall, sort of impressed, very drinkable, nothing special, but a good drinking beer.
