2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle before the Zips game. Light citrus and pale malt nose. Taste is surprisingly bitter for something so weak with light cardboard and slight pepper overtones. Medium, bland body. Disappoints, even on a hot day, which is hard. As for the hype, the overemphasis on hops in the marketing does this beer a disservice, because there aren’t really any here.

Golden pour, white head. Off-citrus scent, but not much flavor to back this one up. Pretty smooth palate, with mild hop content.

"Beer of the month" tap selection at Red Door in Seattle. I liked it. Amber. Thin white head and lacing. Fruity melon aroma. I found a contrasting hop note that cut through the floral flavour. A tasty Golden Ale.

Tap at Mackey’s in DC. Poured a clear, light amber with spotty white lace remaining from a thin head to begin with. Caramel, Worcestershire sauce, slight bitter hops in nose. Taste is soapy, laundry detergent, Worcestershire sauce. Drain pour status if served in my home.

Doesn’t smell the best, a bit of butter perhaps. Looks nice. This is pretty easy to drink, with a good flavor. Nothing aggressive here, but this beer is one that could certainly convince people to branch out a little more, as it’s from newcastle and is quite respectable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured pale clear yellow with thin lasting head. Little lacing. Pleasant faint aroma, summer grass. Light body, light malt flavour, a bit of breadiness. Rather thin finish. This is not a bad ale, bur merely ordinary.

Had on draft at walnut grove restaraunt in wexford, pa. Poured a clear light copper color with medium foamy white head. Aroma is nice clean malts, with slight fruit and floral hops. Flavor very light and watery, nice creaminess to it, sweet, but light floral citrus hop notes without being bitter in any way shape or form. Very very clean crisp beer. Good for a hot summer day.
