3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is very grassy and citrusy, with notes of lemon, pine, and light malt. Drinks very light and refreshing. The noble hops dominate the palate, but balanced well with malt. A very refreshing beer. I can definitely see myself drinking this on a hot day. Not bad.

This beer was exceedingly hoppy but in a nice and crisp way. The aroma was very strong and the flavor followed through. Very nice mix of the noble hops. Nice and enjoyable for a hop lover like me.

I got to vote on this beer at the 2009 Blues & Brews in Akron. I was pretty exicted to see it pop up in all the major beer outlets in the area. The aroma is floral hops. The pour is a rich golden yellow with a medium sized white head. The taste nice and mild hoppy. The hops are not over powering, but give nice floral, citrus and some pine flavors. The finish is clean and dry. This is a very enjoyable beer.

Found this one bottled in Wasco, Illinois. Clear, champagne bubbly medium yellow pour with a thin but foamy white head; floral, grassy and spicey hoppiness balanced with a bit of nuttiness; flavor is complex, nice bitterness but balanced; slightly dry finish. Very highly drinkable but not overpowering in any particular way.

golden and clear with large white head. moderate carbonation for style. spicy and floral hop nose. firm bitterness followed by a brief oxidized skunked flavor followed by some spicy hops before a fair degree of residual sweetness for the style. a nice version of the style, i imagine a fresher or better kept version would be very nice

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours pale gold with a soft head that disapates quickly. Smells very grassy, grainy, and slightly floral. Tastes citrusy sweet, grassy, zesty, and somewhat like honeysuckle. Hints of caramel on the side of the glass as the lacing dries and gets warmer. I don’t think you could possibly make a better pilsner without overpowering with odd flavors. This is strongly balanaced. All the crisp, refreshing drinkabilty of a pilsner and slow sipping hoppiness of an IPA. An excellent hybrid, if that is their attempt.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Weak weak weak beer. Almost bordering bad, there just isn’t anything here... Thin light weak body that washes away into nothing and leaves sponge water on the swallow. Completely average ale, it tastes like a mass lager that should be available anywhere. Not a fan of this one and honestly, I was surprised to see it coming off Sam Adams shelves...

Shared by turdferguson. Very nice translucent light pour with a foamy white head. Nose and flavor both bursting with a delicate fresh Noble hop character, bready malt, tad grassy, citrusy notes. Very tasty.
