3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Clear golden with a medium-sized white head that is partially diminishing. Lightly grassy nose with subtle grapefruit and orange zest, vanilla cookies and whole wheat biscuits. Mild bitterness initially that increases rapidly through the initial flavor profile, bringing notes of leather, bittersweet grapefruit, dried straw and a quick, bright almost ginger zing. Medium-bodied with a nice carbonation. Flavorful and quaffable - I was very pleased.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Clear medium amber with a 1/2" head cover, wide bands of lace. Taste starts with wheat malt, adds quite distinctive authentic honey in the palate (unmistakable taste, with the cloying sweet that accompanies it) before turning slightly bitter for the finish. It should satisfy, but somehow doesn’t blend the tastes together very well.

A quaffable warm weather brew, readily available at the l0cal supermarket. It p0urs a clear yell0w b0dy, quite bubbly, with a m0dest fizzy head. It has a warm fl0ral and lem0ny ar0ma with an underlying pale malty sweetness. The flav0r is lightly t0asty, s0ftly sweet, with a small twist 0f lem0n and s0me s0ft fl0ral bitterness. Nice.

Draft at Union Station bar, whatever they’re calling it now.Thin draft head., a mild nose with toasty malts. Solid ale taste without the extra sweetness that I sometimes get with a blond ale. Helped, no doubt, by its palatable dose of American hops. Light ale esters, tickley carbonation.

Bottle picked up at Binny’s and drunk in Japan after my summer 2012 trip home. A gold pour with a light white head. I’d wanted to try some local Chicago beers & I think Revolution had just started bottling then. Overall, it was a decent ale, the flavor profile was closer to a hoppy lage with less fruitiness than I was expecting. Clean, well-made but ultimately a bit average. A beer for everyday drinking as opposed to special occasions.

Bottle - clearing up some backlog. Bit of a gusher on opening. Pours hazy butterscotch with a large off-white head that eventually dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is honey, grain, corn. Flavor is the same, light sweet, bit of mint, grass - not a lot of Cascade character. Highly carbonated, medium body.
