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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Bottle from Festival Foods. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, sweet spices and malt. Light body with flavors of bready malt, coriander, citrus and mild hops. The finish is fruity with a sweetly spiced aftertaste. Decent beer overall.

Strikingly nondescript. It is just not anything that is worth trying, it is as benign as you can make a beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Bob for bringing this! Poured a hazy, ugly golden with about no head sticking around. The aroma picked up unpleasant (but not entirely offensive) vegetal and pineappley notes with a bit of pale malt behind. The flavor had a lot more pineapple than the notes, and less of the vegetal.. pale malt and bready sweetness at the core, with light bitterness surrounding. Lighter-bodied and sweet on the palate.. somewhat refreshing. This was the best of the 3 (that I tried tonight).

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Cheesehead YeAH 2007, thanks Bob (Skyview) for bringing these: Cloudy hay hue with a fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of grains, mineral, and a hint of tart fruit, weak nose. The taste has a light malt character with a hint of fruit and hop, no depth. The mouth feel is watery and thin. Arrggh...close to drinking water.

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..

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Random single picked up at Woodman’s for a buck something - pours a slightly hazy gold - nose smells fairly Belgian in character (so much so that I think that it is supposed to be a Belgian ale, not a golden ale) - esters of banana and pear, light white frosting sweetness, light grainy malt, light citric acid - the approach is very tart and acidic, so much so that I wonder whether this is infected or supposed to be like this - notes of melon and lemon rind - light grain - mild esters - finish of pear and prickly acid, even a light bit of funkiness - again, hard to tell if infected or intentionally tart - in situations like this, I assume infection - either way, some interesting aspects in the nose, but overall hard to enjoy.
