Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of nice bready grain with good citrus hop notes. Soft bitterness that leaves quickly, really nice for hop lovers.

Draft to taster at RR brewpub
Hay and very light funk.
Yellow, very clear, white head, good lacing.
Hops, wheat, grapefruit. It’s too bitter without some good malt balance.

Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Hazy golden color with small white head. Some grapefruit, floral-herbal, grainy-malty. A nice dry golden Ale, but well... Not my style again.

3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian River’s “everything on tap” sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again?
Great body. Flavor is subtle. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow color, nice lacing. Arom ais light. Little bit of leon and grapefruit. Not much going on there. Flavor is maize, malts, little bit of hops. Would pair really well with tortilla chips or Mexican food, I feel.
