2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours a clear gold body with a small frothy white head. The nose is bready and cereal grains with no hops at all, rather bland. The flavor is dry with a Cheerio like grainy malt, and a touch of doughiness. Very light hop bitterness on the finish. A bit of an odd fruitiness on the back end as well. Mouthfeel is light bodied and clingy with soft carbonation. Doesn’t do anything for me, not very clean.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear coper color, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is fizzy sweet wheat that adds a little tart caramel before fading to a light sweet finish. Neat and clean, very understated, but also very weak. However, better than Bud Light, et al.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a rather clear gold with a thin white head. Grainy, and sweet on the nose. Medium bodied, grainy, soft sweetness. Easy drinking, sort of basic brew pub blonde, but not crappy like most. Nice crisp grain on finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Purchased on 7/28 with the new printed label. I miss the old paper labels...
A - As the name may suggest...a dirty blonde body. Nice and clear with a lot of rising carbonation. Small one finger high white head. A fair amount of lacing.
S - Quite inviting. Toasty malts, grains, light citrus and piney hops, and a bit of sweetness on the finish.
T - Starts off with some pine and fruitiness and finishes dry with toasted grains and a lingering sweetness similar to that found in a adjunct lager. Mouth feel is crisp and well carbonated, but a bit thin.
O - Nothing amazing or ground breaking, but a really easy drinking and palatable beer with flavor. The kind of beer you’d want in a cooler on a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Portsmouth Brewery. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, slight dough, and some grassy hops. Flavor is similar to the nose. A nice starter beer overall; light in body and mild in hops.

22oz Bottle from the gift shop
Pours a slightly cloudy deep golden straw with a smallish bone white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smells of sweet bready malt, is it pilsner malt? Grassy, citrus, and floral hops lightly counter the sweetness and there is a light sweet fruitiness in there as well. Taste holds a sharp tartness as well as some sweet almost honey like malt that quickly fades into a floral citrus bitterness. Earthy bitter tart sweetness lingers at the end of every sip. Medium body and carbonation level with a sweet tart mouthfeel. I guess this is a decent gateway type beer, but I find it a bit sweet for my tastes without enough hops to counter. I could drink this if I had to, but its not my favorite P-brew.
