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

Crisp blonde coloured body with a soapy, large, dense tan head that leaves an ugly lace. Aroma of light hops, light sugars, light malt, a touch of flowers, some jasmine and a minor amount of yeast. Light-bodied; Assertive fresh hops up front that don’t have any depth or body, a little sweetness behind and a very mild malty finish - very bland and unsupported. Aftertaste bland and clean with some floral notes, a tiny amount of hops and a little fresh fruit flavour. Overall, a pretty weak and mild beer - good for the size, but bad for the taste and quality of the beer. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at BevMo in Walnut Creek, California on 19-March-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 22-March-2011.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
Bottle. Dark amber with nice white head. Slightly dirty citrus and floral scent. Strong hops on a soft biscuit malt. Long grapefruit finish. Some woody notes throughout. For a session I might have gone lower ABV but it is a nice drinker.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 13, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2011 Had again and while still good, this is really pretty dry, almost a bit too much. First rating 4.5 Other than a fairly indistinct aroma this beer is awesome. Great hop flavor throughout with a nice dry hop finish. A good malt flavor as well but this is good enough that they should take it off of seasonal and make it a regular.

Floral hops are strong in the nose. Slightly hazy golden-copper body is topped by a generous, fine bubbled, white head that lasts throughout and coats the glass with lace. Deliciously malty toasty flavour with a nice complement of floral and spicy hops and fairly pronounced bitterness in the backend. Medium body with wonderful fine bubbled effervescence. Enjoyed on tap at Portland Craft.

From a 22 oz bottle enjoyed in Jackson Hole. Pours a hazy copper with a thick off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of tropical fruit and citrus. Bitter finish.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2009
22oz Bottle... Poured a hazy amber with a big whit head. Hops and big malts on the nose. A mild bitterness from the hops with some citrus-like and was quickly balanced by the roasted/toasted malt and caramel notes. Very refreshing and a good session ale. Straight forward but well made.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is pretty light to me, and I only get some grassiness coming off it. Taste is actually fairly bitter, but has a nice bit of toasting coming through on it. Pretty decent drink.

The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: pours gold witha white head. Aroma is pine and some fruitiness. Taste is lightly bitter. Easy drinking. Pretty standard. Bitter aftertaste. Not blown away.
