2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Surprisingly smooth and clean considering the style and ingredients. Nice easy drinking summer beer.

nothing real special here besides the cool tap handle. Light tasteless & basically boring

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."

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.

2.1 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is rye bread, malt and floral. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet citrus with a crisp finish. Easy to drink, a good blond ale from Redhook.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pours light golden, large frothy white head, subtle carbonation, with very sticky lacing.   Aroma of malts, maybe some wheat/rye, and light citrus notes.   Flavor is malty, yet rather wheaty.   Full mouthfeel, medium bodied.   Finishes light, fairly crisp.   This year is much better than last years.   A good summer offering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Rerate Kind of musty, but some decent buttery notes redeem it. Original 3.1[/I} Believe it is now packaged as "Sunrye" - similar to the ESB now being called Amber Ale. Decent lacing head, cloudy appearance with a lot of sediment swirling around. Bit of a bubblegum, banana aroma to it. Treating this as a wheat beer - but I see now that it as considered a blond ale. Bit of a hard to pin down odd twang to the aftertaste - not unpleasant - just different. Flavor - very dry, bit of a hoppy undertone.

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.
