On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Not much on the nose, subtle grain and crackers. Medium bodied, grain, crackers, a hint of grainy yeast. Grainy on the finish. Easy drinking, but not my thing.

Bomber at home. Clear deep golden with a foamy head. Aroma is of crackers, lemon soap, sweet grass. Light bodied, bit of sweet honey, some cat piss from the Cascades, mildly hopped finish. Really nicely done for a simple style.

Bottle at the Libertine November bottle share. Pours a light golden with moderate white head. Aroma is bread and slightly sweet. Taste is a run of the mill honey and slightly hoppy ale. Nothing really bad but nothing good.

Hops have held up for a couple months to make a good American-European style golden. Good summery drinkable stuff.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet malts, toffee, popcorn, and mild flowery hops. Not that good, but not quite awful, I guess.

Draft at revolution. Big white head, dissipates quickly. Not detecting much on the nose. Lots of carbonation. Crisp hop is there but not big at all. I think I’m getting some apple. I do quite like the mouthfeel. It may be a bit thin, but it’s nicely balanced. This is good, not great.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2016 On tap, poured into a shaker. Honey and fruity, sugar sweet aromas are most noted with hints of biscuit late. Overall, fairly mellow aromas. It?s a clear, oily honey color with an even, fuzzy and foamy, white head that reduces to thin ring and only leaves a light lace. The taste is a medium sweet start followed by a light bitter finish - both of which are fairly mellow. The medium light body is oily with a soft, fuzzy carbonation. A candy citrus is picked up on the palate with notes of honey and cereal. Lemon, grains, and spice finish it off and stick around in the aftertaste with a notable corn flakes taste.
