2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle sample. Pours a very pale clear gold with a large white meringue-like head. Aromas are grass, lemon, chalk, and bread. Tastes are sweet (I’d say a hint of honey), a little lemon, and a little grain/earth. Light bodied, creamy, little to no carbonation after the initial vigorous pour, short grainy finish. Too sweet and not very complex.

22oz bottle into a small tulip.
Slight hazy golden with a decent head.
Refined and appropriately mild beer.
Nice subtle flavors with both bready and fruity aspects. Aroma is notably more bready than hoppy. Excellent balance
O. Very refreshing and easy drinking. Super for style.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: It says ale on the bottle which I bet is correct, but let’s just say it’s a lager because it drinks like one. Pours cloudy golden lager yellow with a smallish lasting creamy head, a thin layer of retention, some lacing, not that many slow singular streams.
Nose: faint citrus grassy malt (lvl-2)-pungency
Attack: crisp fizzy smoothness
Mid-palate: mellow (lvl-5)-lager sweetness, fizzy crisp, (MAIN) malts, honey, mild lemon citrus
Finish: persistent honey sweetness, very soft hopped bitter malty sweet finish.
Summary: Drinks like a medium-bodied lager, like an upgraded version of the big company beers out there (Kokanee, Bud, etc.). Not terribly complex or deep, it’s a nice meal beer.

Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a golden yellow with bubbly white head. Aroma is crisp malts and lager cleanliness. Taste follows, more honey malt and less of the actual honey. Not bad.

So, I thought this was light, and would have been more refreshing except for a slightly bitter middle taste. Didn’t get a sense of honey, but then this is kind of nicely sweet and pleasant a drink. Earthy aroma, pale yellow pour, it;s not a bad drink for a slower sunday recovery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright, slightly hazy golden yellow with small, diminishing white head that does not leave lace. It smells wonderful, with honey, honeysuckle florals, and earthy, sort of dank barnyard aromas. The taste has a really nice, clean sweetness, balanced with some earthiness, a touch of hoppy zing, and biscuit flavors. It finishes sweet and bready.The carbonation is sufficient. And it holds up surprisingly well with some warming. It’s well-balanced, a successful combination of tastes.
