Light amber with a forthy white head that collapses rather quickly. The aroma is earthy. The flavor is a bit neutral for my liking, bitterness dominates, not enough malt to provide some substance. Mouthfeel is too light, also what flavors there are drop of to nothing very quickly. A definite dissapointment.

Pours a nice orange color, clear with a nice white head that stays for a long time. Aroma was hoppy with a hint of citrus, kinda faint though. Nice malty beginning to the taste that quickly turns to a good bitter end. Very smooth going down and leaves a slightly tangy or something aftertaste, this wasn’t a very pleasent aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2005 5/10/05 Re-Rate: Tap at Bryant Lake Bowl, MN. When I ordered it I did not realize it was the same beer as Yellow Snow, although the bar tender told me that after he saw me rating it. As good as I remember it. Good, hop aroma with salty, sour hops. Cloudy dark gold. tastes like it smells. Bitter. Nice. I need to get my hands on a keg of this. 5/22/04: Doughy, somewhat hoppy citrus aroma. Cloudy light orange (ok, dark urine yellow). Small, white head that is mostly diminishing. Excellent lace. Nice flavor with moderate hoppiness. Very nicely balanced. Definitely has session qualities. This is a summer beer with oomph. Very nice doughy finish. Super enjoyable; I would love to have a keg of this and drink it all night.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Had when called ’Yellow Snow Ale" Hmm, again I thought that I already added this one. This is pretty good overall. Kick of hops in the nose and taste with a perfume ish aftertaste. Easily drinkable. Interesteing story, one of the local beer places had orderd a good amount of this stuff and it just sat there in the fridge for quite a while. They claimed that it didnt sell because of the name. Well, you always were told not to eat the yellow snow. But this should be an exception.

I’ve had several encounters with this pleasant ale since the Rogue beer night on the upper east side. The yellow snow pours a nice golden-coppery hue with an off-white, foamy head. The lacing was negligible. The aroma was grassy with touches of honey and cascade hops lingering in the background. It was quite refreshing to the nose. The taste was reflective of that. It starts sweet with a the slightest of carbonation, which enhances the flavor. The hops come as an aftertaste on the palate with hints of pine. A very nice session drink

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2008 Pours a cloudy yellow. Aroma is huge! Nice hop and berry scent. Flavor is not quite outstanding as the scent but you get hops and some berries in there. Good brew!

Bottled. Fairly good, bitter, spicyness... but there was something a little unpleasent about it. I’m not really too impressed.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Rerate from a just delivered bottle to Whole Foods in Cary, NC. Pours hazy canary with a medium head. Aroma of bready malt, some fruity hops, and honey. Tastes hopcity, with a firm bready malt presence, and some fruitiness, including berries, apricots, and peach, in the finish. Well balanced, extremely complex, with a clean, crisp finish. You must try this stuff. As pale ales go, it’s at the upper end of the scale.

Poured a huge foamy off-white head. Settled down quickly but nice lacing. A hazy copper golden color in my glass. The smells to me was of fresh cut hay (that’s a good thing). I get a bitter start with a mild malty finish. Nice beer.
