Draft at Revolution. Pours a nice gold with white head. Fluffy and nose is floral. On taste, quite straightforward and soft, plenty of hops there to keep you interested. A touch sweet and grassy. Still, would be good come summer.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Gold with a white head. Light aroma of citrus. This is a very well balanced beer with soft malt and hops blending well together. Usually people have the Gold beer be a very light beer that everyone can enjoy...this one actually has a lot more flavor, which I like.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2010 Sampler at revbrew...pours a semi-transparent pale light orange with a soapy white head... Aroma of soft citrus and tangerine, a little soapy which doesn’t necessarily detract... Flavor again of soft citrus and pale malt. Very lighty carbonated. Somewhat thin and watery mouthfeel. Low to non-existent bitterness.

Light, slightly cloudy straw-gold without much head. Very pleasant fruity nose with a bit of sharp hop bitterness. Flavor is an excellent balance of crisp clean hops, grassy notes, and juicy, vaguely citrusy fruits. Highly flavorful. Thicker body than expected, tingly palate. Even top-quality breweries often play it safe with their "entry-level" beer, usually so that non-beer-snobs who tag along with their beer-snob friends have something they can enjoy. This is the first beer I’ve tried from this brand-new brewery, and with it they’ve put the world on notice that they’re not compromising for anyone.
