2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle via trade with Hellbilly. Pours an attractive gold, a touch cloudy with next to no head. Nose is kinda sweet, iced tea, malt. Mostly though, I get iced tea, not in a bad way, just in an omnipresent way. Taste is kinda similar. Virtually no bitterness, but there is enough hop character to balance out the sweetness in this one. This would a great canned beer, actually. Has some slipperiness in the mouthfeel, but overall thin. Not too shabby.

Bottle, thanks hellbilly. Pours slightly hazy gold, with a white head. Aroma is fruit and malt. Flavor is fruit, malt, and some hops. Would be a decent session beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of fruit, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is a bit thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bouteille brune 12 noces achetée à Phœnix. Liquide blond clair translucide. Nez malté avec une odeur végétale ou épicée (jus de tomate?). Peut-être un houblon américain. En bouche, idem au nez. Un peu différent pour une lager, mais pas mauvais. Peu de mousse et corps moyen. Pour ouvrir l’appétit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear golden orange pour with a vigorous white head which fades to a film. (my glass was too clean so the head didn’t stick around!)
this smells very dry... citrus, strawberries (yep!), grass, light yeast and subtly toasted grains.
the palate is crisp with a clean finish. the flavor shares the aroma’s profile... green strawberries, lemon, grain and grassy hops. there’s no lingering aftertaste and absolutely nothing ’off’. the medium body is smooth and contains the perfect amount of crisp carbonation.
great session beer... i drank this all day! 6/3/6/3/16/3.4

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a one finger white head that fades into a persistent soap scum topper. Nose is sweet malt and lager hops. Taste is light corn syrup, honey and grassy hops. Medium mouth feel. Not too bad. Glad to see this brewery bottling more of their line-up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tap at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. It has a mild, bready malt aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet, light malt with some good hops in there. It’s light but not watery and manages to be a pretty solid brew for what it is.

Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, straw, some floral hints, a touch of dry malt. Tastes of caramel, a hint of pepper, some subtle citrus, hay. Nice dry finish.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured amber from the tap with a white head. Mildly bitter with the taste of hops. Couldn’t finish the sample. Not impressive at all for a previous medal winner.
