2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with small white head and minimal lacing. Not much to smell. Aroma has some lemon, grass, grains, and faint citrus hops. Body is light to medium. Mouthfeel is crisp with lively carbonation. Taste is almost nondeScript. This reminds me more of a kosch than an American Pale Ale. Although this might be an historicallty important recipe, it doesn’t do much for me. I’ve enjoyed many less expensive Sam Adams beers more than this one. Not bad, but recommended only for students of American brewing history. I will not try another 6-pack of this.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours hazy yellow. Not much on the nose, just a hint of lemon. Not much going on here. A small taste of wheat and lemon followed by some bitterness. More like a filtered wheat than a pale ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours sparkling golden with very little head. Faint bready aroma. Decent hop character with a yeasty bread finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and fizzy. Perfectly good pale ale, but not spectacular.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden hue, with a bright white head of solid, tight foam. The aroma is bright and citrusy. This drinks with a rich, creamy mouthfeel, with a snappy, sweet-grassy flavor. A bit "kolsch-y" if you ask me. Light yet flavorful and snappy. (#5006, 5/5/2013)

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Subtle floral hops with a little earth. Slight sweet malt. Clear, pale gold with moderate white head of various sized bubbles. Taste of dirt floor, slight corn and flowers. Have a slightly stinging bite half way through. Some moderate buttering. Slightly astringent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden peach color with a little foam and a little lace. There’s a midly beer like aroma and kind of a malty, slightly tangy beer like taste. It made me really crave a beer.

Excellent beer. More flavor than standard "lawnmower" beer. Hint of wheat, with a subtle hop finish. Most will enjoy.
