2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma of biscuit and citrus? Very faint. Brassy gold color with essentially no head. Thinnish in body with biting carbonation. The flavor is pale malt/bread, arguably citrus, arguably grassy hop. The finish is almost like having had water. Ok, light and crisp, but not a great deal of flavor. Still, it seems very drinkable. After awhile some bitterness builds in the mouth. For not much of anything, it is something.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mostly clear, sunshine gold brew. Small, frothy white head.
The nose is yeasty with leather and apricot notes.
Mild citrus and butterscotch flavors. A bit thin. Dry rye notes.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. I guess I'll go against the grain here and hand out a good score. Great beach beer! It is what it is... a very light ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well this one is not that good. Very clear gold pour with a small white head. Aroma is very grainy and malty...but in the macro brewed style. Flavor is off, weak, grainy, some malt and some odd hops. No good.

At the Old Toad. I like the taste of rye, and like it normally in beer, but it did not work out in this case. This beverage had head, lace, mouthfeel was creamy as if wheat, and good hops. Cloudy wheaty appearance. Just not all that tasty nor drinkable.
