3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orangey hue and topped with a soapy white bead... Aroma of citrus and light grain. Not too much dorado... Same goes for the flavor. Crisp citrus minus assertive dorado. Medium bodied with semi-prickly carbonation. Easily drinkable but expecting more of a pronounced dorado presence.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma has a lot of earthy hops and slight bread malts as well; noticeable pine and citrus too. Taste is a mild balance of sweetness and bitterness. Light body, good carbonation, and thinner on the palate. A good brew, but nothing incredible about it overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Almost clear, dark golden in color, topped by a small white head. Lots of peaches, lemon peel and pine cones in the aroma, some room left for the pale malts. A fine bitterness supports, and overpowers, the sweetness. Pine cones, grass and some flowery hints. Soft carbonation, medium to full body. A really nice hoppy one. 130815
