3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 12oz bottle. Thick, hazy golden-tan color. Big white head. Pretty attractive considering it’s advertised as their lightest offering. The aroma is sweet, with a touch of corn and vanilla. Very creamy, light to medium bodied. Quite refreshing, smooth finish. Certainly above par for your light offering, but has a slightly unclean taste that starts to pervade towards the end.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a cloudy, apple cider-colored body, topped by a small head of foam which diminished quickly. Looks flat. Citrus aroma along with light malting. Thin body, with crisp carbonation. Flavor is sweet and tart, with a palate of orange, spice, and malts. Aftertaste is bitter, and woody. The taste of this beer isn’t too bad, but it’s appearance and watery texture prove to be it’s undoing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange body with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Sweet honey and citrus aroma with just a touch of skunk. Pretty thin palate with medium carbonation. The flavor overall is sweet with corn, honey, and sweet citrus evident. There is a touch of spiciness towards the finish. Not a bad brew, but not very exciting.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Pleasant aroma of pale malt and honey. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a moderate white head. Leaves a few spots of lace. Flavor is slightly sweet, with some nice yeast complexity going on, but spoiled a cardboardy stale off element. Thin bodied, active carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden yellow with a thin white quickly fading head. Aroma of corn, sweet malts, lemon and grain. Taste of lemon, grain, barley and spicy. Somewhat of a spicy finish but fairly bland and thin otherwise.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a vibrant golden/orange colour with a medium sized white head. Plenty of carobnation, aroma is semi sweet of caramel and biscuity malts. Taste is relatively light as expected finishing off in a semi sweet honey flavor.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was thin and reduced almost immediately. My nose detected only a whiff of caramel and grassy hops. Light mixture of acidity and sweetness on the tongue. Malt dominated flavor of burnt caramel and toasted wheat bread. There were also some grassy hops and mild to moderate hop bitterness that peaked at 4 out of 10. Dry, grassy finish. Flashes of promise, but pretty blah.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden body with a small white head.
Smell: Faint aroma of toasted grains with an almonst indistinct floral hop scent.
Taste: Sweet, lightly-flavored maltiness and a soft, floral bitterness. Bland finish. That’s really all there is to it.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: Wholly underwhelming.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent light golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma reminds me of smelling a bag of light DME. Body starts fairly sweet and malty with a good amount of carbonation and some mild bittering hop presence. Fairly well balanced and very drinkable. Would make a nice session brew.
