750 ml. capped bottle. Pours a medium,well retained, tiny bubbled, off white head, with minimal lacing, over a slightly hazy, light amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is toasted malts, with biscuit, toast, light herbal floral tones, balance to the malts.....taste is cereal, toasted malts with bread, biscuit, leading to light herbal, pine finishing bitterness, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, light of medium body, minimal alcohol, light acid, with high carbonation. This is a pleasant, nicely balanced example of the style. It is not complex, nor very interesting as a style, but falls into the category of "the easy drinking pint". BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Transfer from BA review on 4-8-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a hazy orange amber color with a small head of white foam floating atop the brew. The head fades rather fast leaving a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of some honey and a bit of a grainy smell. Along with these smells are some caramel and citrusy aromas of grapefruit and some orange. Overall very mild and light. Taste – The taste of the beer begins with a rather crisp and smooth bready taste with hints of a caramel and honey sweetness and a lighter hop flavor of a grapefruit nature. The grapefruit grows stronger as the flavor moves onto the end becoming the predominant hop flavor of the brew. The grapefruit never gets too overpowering however, always staying in pace with the malty flavors of the brew. The malty flavors upfront are of a more bready flavor transition to a more grainy like flavor with a bit of a hay-like flavor more toward the end of the taste. With a little bit of a grassy and herbal flavor also joining the taste at the end, one is left with a crisp but somewhat citrusy and grainy flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness, creaminess, and carbonation for a brew of 5.2 % abv. It balances the citrus and grainy flavors of beer nicely and makes for a rather refreshing brew overall. Overall - A rather refreshing beer for the most part. I am glad however that I tried it on tap as I paid $ 5.00 for a pint, where if getting a bottle I would have been rather disappointed at spending ~ $12 for a “lighter” beer of its nature. Refreshing and nice but not worth the big price tag for a bottle. Try it on tap if you get the chance.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2014
The appearance is deep gold with a little head aroma is a balance of malt and hops the taste is right for the style the power is typical. Overall decent but a little underwhelming anniversary.

jsmerig (1294) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a hazy golden amber with a nice silky head. Aroma of biscuit and plum. The taste is lightly malted upfront followed by a quick drying sensation mid palette. The finish is deeply bitter, without a lot of hop aroma or flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (4660) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Clear deep golden under a thin foamy white head. Strong aroma of earthy pale malt grains, toast, and light tree fruitiness, and a funny little wheat ale yeastiness. Smooth blonde flavor with a dry grassy bitterness, some light toasted biscuit, a warming alcohol note that doesn’t play too sharp, and some more pale gold grains. Ok, just a nicely assertive blonde.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2014
This beer is a slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, yeast and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of bready malt, earthy yeast and citrusy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
