COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Low gravity, hoppy, unfiltered Fromthe web site: Belgian and Canadian malt, European hops (Saaz and Styrian Goldings), and Belgian yeast. The yeast provides a slight refreshing tartness, while the hops are the subtle and classic European variety. About a pound per barrel of hops, of which 75% were for dry-hopping, and this will certainly mislead you. These hops do not dominate the beer nor overwhelm with bitterness, but they just sit there in the background, reminding you they are there to help the dry, refreshing finish. Sorry, that last bit got showy.

thank you notch you don’t fail to impress. Clear clean yellow color. The aroma is all wonderul fruity esters. Touches of lemon and cherry in there. The taste is earthy bits of grass and very dry. Sharp sharp sparkling bubbles. I could drink 3, 22oz bottles on my own.

22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquors for $4.24 after Wild Six discount. English pint shows me a slightly hazy gold. Very thin white head with mild retention. The nose is a pleasant Belgian yeast and grassy type hop aroma. Taste is real impressive for what this style is. Zesty yeast, light bready malt and a hop nuance in the finish. Light bodied. A session beer indeed!

A hazed blonde ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, smooth herbaceous malt with light fruity esters, and light Brett. In mouth, a light refreshing powdery malt with light fruity notes, not bad. On tap at Somerville Summerfest, July 14, 2012.

22oz Bottle, purchased a New England Wine & Spirits - Newburyport, MA. Aroma is a light chalk and flint mineral. Slight Belgian phenol hint. Flavors are clean and seltzery. Carbonic. This does not have any of the hopping they allude to in the description. The flavor is essentially a Belgian Blonde Ale, done Cincinnati-style (half beer, half seltzer). A light juicy phenol finish. I wouldn’t find the low gravity if there was some sugar to stand up against. Unfortunately, with a number of the Notch productions, I don’t feel the product delivers what the description promises. I’m always left with a rather watery beverage that doesn’t have much flavor. Super small session beer can be done well and stunningly (e.g. Pretty Things 1945 X Ale).

Pours deep gold into a Sam glass. Off-white head quickly recedes leaving scant spiders. Sweet yeast and banana aromas. Dry with nuts and hay front to back. Medium length bitter earth finish.

This low gravity beer is exactly what it says it is. The hops stand out nolt witht he strerngth of a well hopped IPA but given the lightness of th e beer, they dominate the taste and nose. It is a light beer and as such it surpasses th e macro entries but falls short of some other lights, i.e. the one dimensional Sam Adams Light, which has some maltiness. Nose: resin, Apearance: golden, hazy unfiltered, white foam, minimal head, Taste: lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, fizzy, bitter finish.
