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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Boring and a little bit of a stale finish. Nothing here to make me want to drink this again. Not even anything in the way of refreshign either.

Never seen or heard of this brew in the UK, so when I saw it on the tap list in the Burger Bar, Las Vegas I thought I had better get myself a pint and I did! A thin white head sat on top of the light amber body of the beer, it looked OK rather than awesome. Malts lead the way in both the aroma and taste with the hop content happy to balance out any true sweetness. Easy drinking and non offensive summertime brew, nothing to get excited about and although I enjoyed it, my taste buds were not required during the drinking of the beer.
