2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet aroma. Light yellow/orange, barely cloudy. Very smooth, but crisp texture. Tastes of sweet malts, with a bit of honey and orange. Not a typical blonde ale. Easy to drink, but not as exciting as other beers. Doesn’t match Blue Moon, Honey Weiss, etc.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
aroma is extremely unpleasant rotted cabbage and bigger corn then most malt liquors. appearance is super pale polished straw. flavor is somehow at least neutral despite horrid aroma, mostly lighter and barely tolerable corn with metallic element as well. big disappointment from a brewery i enjoy. if i was more sure this was infected i would not rate it, however i think the beer is actually intact but just poor.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a thin white head. Smelled of white cake and light citrusy hops. A bit lemony. Light bodied and delicately sweet, bordering on watery. Tasted of lemon Pez candy and pale malt. Very easy drinking sessioner. Not terrible.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The Dan Journal #330. Tasted 3/16/10. 12oz bottle. Mildly hazy with a golden orange hue. Whispy layer of white head. Aromas of musty bready yeast. Somewhat obtrusive nose. Medium bodied and, once again, very bready flavors. Mild citrus backbone. Touch orange and caramel malts. Mild effervescence. Short finish. Mildly chalky. Overall mediocre.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured with rapidly disappearing head. Pee yellow. Low carbonation and rather watery looking. Citrusy aroma and rather bland taste. This would be a post-lawn mowing brew as a thirst quencher but I am disappointed that I bought a 6 pack of this without trying a single first.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden color, slightly hazy, with a thin white head. Aroma is faint with a hint of honey. Taste is mild, slightly sweet with a nip of coriander and citrus. Mild on the finish with a light to medium body. Pairs well with a light cream cheese on matzo crackers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle sent to me by alagnak. Pour is a cloudy yellow with a bright white one inch head that falls quick. Not too much lacing. Aroma of grainy cracker malt and orange fruit. Some nice yeasty, mild clove spice in there as well. A touch of flint and mineral present as well. Nice full clean nose. Taste is sharp acidic citrus (much more orange or lemon peel than the fruit of the nose) out of the gate, with some clove spice and then the cracker grainy malt. Like the nose, natural and fresh - very unfiltered taste. Palate is full, yet light and drinkable with nice carbonation. Finish features the mineral earthiness from the nose. Nice one, thanks for thinking of me Chris - this was right up my alley.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the OF, served in an icy pint glass. Hazy tan-orange color with a big, foamy head. Light and fresh lemony aroma and taste. Smooth and watery, somewhere between light and medium bodied. Some vanilla nuances in there as well. No real hop character to speak of. Light malt sweetness, light orange zest.
