3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark gold/amber color with a white head and lots of lacing. The aroma is light, with mainly yeast and citrus. The flavor is similar to a pale ale, with hops and citrus being the strongest flavors, with some yeast and a somewhat fizzy body. A great beer name as well.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden color. Somewhat resinous hops aroma with some slightly grainy malt. Flavor starts with caramelly sweetness and continues to a very bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Brian! Pours a somewhat hazy orange-gold color with a small eggshell white head. Notes of sweet crackers, toasted sugar, marshmallow, orange and lemon citrus, hay, biscuit, and a little earthiness. Not much in the way of hops to speak of. That’s all right, though, as I’ve had plenty in this style that are excessively grassy, boozy, and bitter. This is none of that- dry, malty, and toasty. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not bad.
