Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. Itís a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

From the tasting notes. Bomber bottle. Pours orangey amber, thin head. Hop aroma of pines and general hoppiness, taste is malt and hops. Nicely put together, nothing special.

Amateur Blonde with less than impressive taste. If you want something with a soft body and a fading memory of a beer, this is for you. Not a complete dive, but a good beginning.

The beer has a golden amber color with a medium head. The aroma has some citrus and grass along with some malts. Taste has some earthy hops and a slight bitterness.

Poured from 6 fl oz bottle. Hazy orange yellow with very minimal white head. Mild hoppy aroma with some mild skunk. Dry hoppy taste. Quite piney, with some mild citrus.

Shared from a big brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a clear, light golden colour with substantial white foam, very long-lasting with lace. Strong hoppy aromas, some grains and freshly-cut grass underneath. A crisp, almost neutral malt flavour with strong bitterness balanced against it, resiny and citrusy hop flavours. American profile for sure, but not overwhelmingly grapefruity. It reminded me of Bells Third Coast Beer.

Smells hoppy/floral as can be. Thick amber color and small bubbly head. Tastes a bit tart at first then almost an skunky bitter aftertaste. Itís good but that aftertaste is not for me.
