3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - at drowland’s 7/7/12 going away tasting party - thanks to Tim and Rachel. Light gold pour, white bubbly head. Aroma is rather odd, but enticing, initially reminds me of BO, but it grows on you and ends up to be similar to rising dough. Flavor is toasty and bready, some fruity accents reminiscent of peach preserves, some raisin-like sweetness in the back end. Thick enough mouthfeel. Very flavorful Cream Ale.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Madison Co-op in Seattle. Nose has mild berry hop aromas, light graininess. Flavor has pronounced peach hop flavor, substantial textured barley flavors - good malt profile for a pale beer - very nice lingering dry bitterness in the finish. Palate is light and bubbly. I believe I could drink a keg of this in a sitting and enjoy every drop.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours blond with three fingers of fluffy white head. Smell is light fruity, sugary almost. Taste is a bit tart, almost a bit of the lager taste, hard to put my finger on it. Very carbonated and thin body. Good for the style.

On tap. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are clean, bready, grassy with mild DMS. Flavors are sweet, floral, bready, corn bread with a hoppy and slightly fruity finish. Really good for the style (one of my favorites). Lively bubbles, light and dry.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Flasche) Es hat ein helles, klares, fast Zitronengelb mit einer weißen, feinen Schaum. Das Aroma ist stark citrusartig und leicht lipulinig. Geschmacklich ist es kaum bitter, außer ganz leicht im Abgang. Er ist schlank und etwas langweilig aber retronasal ist das Hopfenaroma gut schmeckbar. Im Ganzen etwas langweilig aber sehr süffig.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very clear orange-golden beer, metallic, with no head left but a white rim. Rainwater nose, garden herbs, moss. Rainwater, grains and pale malts - dull. Very watery body, if with a creamy texture. Oh well... then again, my sample was probably not in the best of condition.
