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.

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 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 medium 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. Honey and grains finish it off and stick around in the aftertaste with a notable corn flakes taste.

Flavors of bread soft wheat clean pleasant soft citrus and some floral notes. Golden pour thin head and lace. Flavors of light bread and a little wheat. Light orangey notes herbal after that and a light crisp finish with moderate residual sweetness. Not bad.
