2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours a beautiful crystal clear golden color with a small bubbly head that slowly becomes a slight sheen on the top of the beverage. There’s definitely something off about the aroma. It’s slightly skunky, slightly vegetal, and overall not very pleasant at all. I would almost argue that it has a slight lacto smell. I passed it to my girlfriend and she described the smell as "B.O. and urine". Maybe it’s infected?
The taste is a bit less offensive, but still not very good. There is a slight nuttiness and sweetness coming from the golden promise and a VERY slight hint of spice from the hops. The spice lingers a bit after swallowing, and veers off into just a hint of bitter in the back of my throat.
It pains me to say this, but this is going down the drain.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow in color with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malt, biscuit, and lemon juice. Nothing exciting about this one but I’m not generally a "summer ale" guy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty citrus. Excessively drinkable. The scent is to die for but it strangely turns to water in the mouth; the aroma is more than the flavor. For a summer sip it goes down easy!

Bottle. Nose is slightly bready with a moderate fruitiness and graininess. Almost a touch of diacetyl or something else going on in the aroma. Pour is very clear, yellowish with an orange highlight. Taste is a slightly sweet biscuit focused malty beer, with a light floral estery expression. A touch of bitterness keeps it dry. Refreshing and non offensive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, bread, light citrus, grass, hints of florals. Served cold this would deliver nice refreshment on a hot summer day, but not much character for an everyday beer.
