2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from phaleslu. Thanks! The beer is a clear copper with a white head of foam. The head fizzes away very quickly. The aroma is papery and a little white peppery. Some spice esters come through, but just faintly. The taste is moderately bitter, but mostly sweet. Bitterness kicks in toward the finish. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Don’t know why the head didn’t stick around any better than it did.

Draft to taster at Rivertown. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, doughy bread, yeast, bubblegum, hints of banana, light spice, too thin, weak finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just an honest blonde ale with nothing too special which makes it so special. Easy to drink alone but not overly done so it goes well with food as well. Slight peppery taste on the tongue while drinking and a slightly fruity aftertaste. This will be my new summertime go-to ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Foggy, peach-gold with a thin white head. Bad, plasticky label on a squat 12oz bottle. Sort of a wit-like aroma - orange/citrus, zesty malt, some spice, light vanilla sweetness, some tang. Effervescent, with vanilla cakey and sour citrus themes. Body is lightish and the mouthfeel is fizzy. Bitterness kicks in on the back corners of the tongue and in the finish. Finishes out with kumquat impressions. ABC, Bull Run.
