3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is underrated, I suspect that people don’t understand it. Pours a nice deep canary. Great citrus, hoppy aroma, with a citrus, hop, yeast, fruity finish. Nice complexity. This beer deserves to be rated higher here.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled on 6/5/07. Poured bright golden with just a dusting of white head and lots of yeasties suspended in there. The aroma picked up honey, straw, and faint hints of vegetal notes.. not bad for what it is, but there are better styles out there. The flavor found semi-sweet bready, straw, and honey notes at the core, with just a hint of rye spicage.. dry back-end with light straw bitterness.. refreshing. Light-bodied with solid balance and a good overall feel to it.

Gravicask, one-third pint. Slightly unclear golden body. Naked surface. Discreet aroma of lemony hops. Sweet fruit-grainy flavour. Thin and rather unvaried (GBBF, 05.08.2009).

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I figured this for a lawnmower-type beer so I had one after mowing the lawn. Pours a yellowish-orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of rye and yeast. Rather thin-bodied, and to me it tasted like a macro with some rye thrown in. The rye aftertaste saves it from being a drain pour but this is still a below-average beer.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Lemongrass malt aroma. Medium yellow color with small head. Very light taste of rye malt is about all you get from this flavorwise with a mild hops finish. Nothing offensice - just very weak and bland.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet malty aroma , not to deep . The sediment mentioned below did not please my eye. Sorry. Introduction of beer flavour was sharp, but short lived. Some yeasty aftertaste mixed with hoppy bitterness. Unrefined quality, almost brutal to my palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Mohegan Sun. Pours gold with a nice creamy white head. Smells of citrus, rosey, some sweet malt, some sugar, hints of wildflowers, a touch of dry wheat. Tastes sweet and malty with some peppery splashes and a touch of hoppiness. Drinkable and sessionable.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium
yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (dough),
note of DMS. Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic, unclean. Light to medium
body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nothing of value here...DMS in
the otherwise vacuous nose, and poorly balanced flavor profile (devoid
of malt) with a disturbing aftertaste. Thumbs down.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Crystal clear medium gold with scant off-white head. Not much nose: sweaty, maybe. Light body. Almost watery. Almost corny mid-palate; just a hint of rye sourness, but only enough to let you know that there’s a flavor here that you wouldn’t ordinarily expect, so...it kinda seems like an off note. Not much finish. Company says it "tastes like watered down grain alcohol. The aftertaste is like rubbing alcohol."

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Surprisingly smooth and clean considering the style and ingredients. Nice easy drinking summer beer.
