2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a short, white head, rapidly diminishing. Light aroma of sweet malts, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Tart, sour rotting apple taste in the finish. Clean beer, except for the off-flavor in the finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Badger in Beloit. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a thin white head. Below average head retention. Aroma of toasted grainy malts and a lightly sweet finish reminiscent of graham crackers. Faint herbal hops as well. The taste is tart malts and citrus hops. Some green apple and a bit of toastiness. Thin-medium bodied. Fairly boring but not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at O’So’s new location. Lighter yellow pour with a thin white head. Grain and wheat on the nose. Thinner palate but not too thin. Taste is grain, wheat, and a touch of lemon. Sessionable.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed on a nice early July Thursday night. Appearance looks pretty watered down, pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of light yeast, slightly grassy, lemony, very summer like. A previous review stated pineapple in the nose and I agree. Taste of apricots (wasn’t expected at all) and pineapple, very fruity flavor, slightly tart, definitely goes down crisp with a very slight bitterness. Actually pretty decent stuff, not sure if I’d go back to it at all but I’m happy to have given it a shot. Also, this is reminiscent of Austin Homebrew’s Golden Ale recipe for mini mash, so if you like this beer and want to start homebrewing, get that recipe and it’ll be similar to this brew.

Pale and watery. Nothing significant about this beer at all. Light in nearly every aspect.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from our trip through WI/MN. Need to get through these. Pours a golden glowing pour, good haze, touches of golden orange glow on the edges. A good healthy carbonation and small whotish head that dies to a ring clinger, light lacing. Aromas are crisp cereal grains, touches of orange and lemon, light spiced yeast is gentle. Quite grainy and cereal bready malts overall with touches of grass. Initial is lighter bodied up front offering some bready malts, cereal grains, and light grassy qualities. A touch of tart oranges and lemons, a bit fuzzy on the palate. With a nice citrusy sweet tart influence. Some paper and grass comes in more in the after presence on the palate. It’s an interesting beer, perhaps a touch old, papery with an interesting tartness. But still clean Ok, a strange beer..
