3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from a six pack purchased from Kroger. We bought it for friends visiting for the weekend, and they liked the beer a lot, but not the label. Plenty of comments on that. Anyway, this one pours a cloudy yellow-gold with an inch of white head. The pils malts provide notes of crackers, bread, and grains, along with hops that are subtle, with grass and citrus. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Good blonde ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to DrSilverworm. Hazy amber-gold pour with a small head that fades to a ring with big bubbles. Aroma is a nice mix of cereal grain and cocktail fruit juice. Taste is big and juicy which is a great surprise. Great juicy fruit cocktail-like taste is front. Big spicy and floral hop finish with a mild bitterness. Grainy malt is noticeable throughout as well. Smooth soft carbonation pairs well with the spicy hop bite. Really good beer but Iím thinking this should be labeled a pale ale. And I hope this new Belma hop gets more use at other breweries.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at 101 Beer Kitchen. The beer pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and a touch of citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Faintly hazy, with a foamy white had. Smells citrusy, like mango, I suppose and a little bit toasty,. Dry, woody flavor, with some piney, bitterness. Lingering finish
