Very light bodied pale golden colored ale. Slight hop malt flavor is seriously lacking depth. Rated 8/14/08

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer pours the expected straw-colored golden hue, with a moderate to large and dense white head. The nose brings characters first of some tropical fruit (perhaps a New Zealand variety of hop?) along with the more familiar earthy and herbal notes of traditional continental strains. The palate begins with a slightly grainy/bready note of malt sweetness, before moving into a noticeable bitterness, and a slightly fruity finish. Overall, given the relative simplicity of the style in terms of flavor and scent, I’d say this is a well-brewed version.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden amber pour with white head .... aroma of fruit/spice and some breadiness .... taste of some spices, pilsner malt, a hoppy bite and some yeast .... a decent brew on a warm spring day but nothing spectacular

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was slight grassy hops and and bland malt. Flavor was basic pilsner malt, maybe some adjuncts, and the slightest bit of bitterness. Not good but nothing too offensive

Had this one on draft downtown in Philadelphia. Gold pour, aroma of malts but slightly hoppy. Clean and refreshing but still flavorful. Not overly complicated, not the best thing ever but nice for the price.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slight haze on a pale yellow. White rocky head. Clean sterile aroma. Decent amount of CO2 makes it pleasanat. First taste is interestingly bitter, like a pale ale that wants to be an IPA er something. I’m not a hop lover but this hop bitterness along with the CO2 almost makes it enjoyable. Shades of orval here? Chewing on green grapefruit rinds is the finish which leaves you hangen on the end.
