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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a golden color with a small white head. The aroma was tangy basic lager without a whole lot going on. The flavor was tangy, bitter and had a light floral hop presence. There was a long bitter and tangy finish. Eh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice blond ale. Very sessionable Aroma was decent. Light malt with a earthy hoppiness. Pour was a medium cloudy gold with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was nice and hoppy. More so than any gold/blond that I’ve had. The hops dry the mouth in the aftertaste and has decent carbonation.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
hazy gold with sediment and a crazy fluffy white head that built over the rim of the glass like soft swirl ice cream. dry wheat aroma, nearly offensive. Not much body, not much character, sour pickles jump out and offend me. next!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A local brew for me. This is a good beer. I don’t get the lower rating for it. Pours an amber blond. Definite hop tingle on the back end, but very pleasant.

Not one of my favorites. Nice white head and good lacing but too bitter for me.
