an excellent beer for you and that chick you are hitting on who ’hates beer.’ but you really shouldn’t be hitting on a chick who hates beer now should you?

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 This is perhaps the best light ale I’ve had in a long, long time. It’s a light golden beauty with a hoppy nose. The flavor is flowery with hops and sweetness. Incredibly smooth, and like they say it’s not overpoweringly bitter, either.

Very light bright gold with a nice yeast-in-suspension body and a dense white head. Slight fruity aroma. Plenty of flavor with evidence of various citrus elements. Nice but not overwhelming malt profile. I honestly looked at this beer and thought that I would not like it. Never judge a book by its cover!

a pretty good translation of the style. Doesn’t quite nail the chewy bite in the finish. still a good warm weather brew.

A person I was with described this in terms of "the first caught trout in a spring cast". Well... It is true this is a very good beer. As light as any light beer, good head, but whoa! what an aroma of orange and bubblegum, with similar flavors. An astringent palate, interesting citric notes. A worthy beer.

Golden and hazy with a thin white head. Light floral aroma. Smooth light hint of lemon. Very drinkable with a bit of a dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think mike oberdorf said it best: "WHAAAAA?" An average of 3.92? This was mediocre at best. Actually, it tasted like a slightly less hoppy version of their BPA. I thought it was a golden/blonde ale. A Kolsch? I highly doubt it. I’ll be happy to take this beer down a peg or two.

Draft. Pale golden color with a thin white head. Fresh hop aroma with citrus and some grainy notes. Fresh hop flavor with a citric finish. Refreshing.
