2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
16oz Can. The pour was a clear pale yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that reduced down to a medium film with a small collar and had fair runny lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, grassy hops and a funky cheesy yeast with notes of citrus and some kind of adjunct.
The taste was lightly sweet with a bready malt backbone and a slight graininess from the start, becoming just a tad citrusy with a very mild hop presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow, with an lightly bitter American adjunct finish.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet slightly creamy texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall this was a brew with a very mild flavor, which is typical of an American light ale. Although it was not a bad beer by any means and would make a good light session brew for those hot summer days... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of celery and hair spray / ammonia.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Finally a Renegade brew that’s not swimming in diacetyl, so kudos to the brewery for that. Sadly there are other off notes instead in here, although thankfully they aren’t all that strong. Still unfortunate, though, because if the chemical and vegetal flaws were cleaned up, it would probably be a decent quaffer, albeit not terribly exciting.

Good cream ale. Little corn, very minor fruit...apricot? Other than that, lawn mower.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz can. Pours hazy straw yellow with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.
The aroma is subdued - sweet bready honey malts.
The flavor is sweet honey malts with a light bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with very low carbonation.
Overall, uninspiring but not offensive.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Hazy and effervescent honey gold with a thin white head. Aroma is butter, cosmetics, a fresh coat of paint, sweet potato, sweet boiled carrots, strawberry rhubarb and magnesium hydroxide. Thin, watery, flabby texture. Silty yeast texture. Tastes of caulk, paint and honey butter with sweet romain lettuce in the finish. Not crisp, not clean, not easy drinking, not sessionable.

I am probably being overly critical of this beer - it would probably be great on a hot day. Like most American blond ales, it is a non-craft beer drinker's craft beer

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
8/18/12 notes: Draft, brewery. Pour is clear, with a small white head. Mouthfeel is clean, slightly more heft than a typical light lager. Aroma is mildly spicy, and flavor has upfront pop of passionfruit with a bready and clean finish. Interesting and successful for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is bright golden in appearance with a one-finger white head and decent lacing. Dough, biscuit, straw, light citrus, and grass in the aroma. Taste is pretty smooth with no real "off-flavors;" bread, light fruit, and dough with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Nothing to get excited about; but a very approachable beer.
