3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a mildly hazy straw color. The head is a three finger white shade. Fluffy in texture, it lasts a decent duration and leaves behind streaks of lacing on the glass.
S: About what I expected: grassy hops are at the forefront. I could use some more fruity esters on the nose. However, this one’s all about showcasing the noble hops, and that’s not exactly a bad thing.
T: The fruity qualities I was looking for on the aroma are thankfully more prevalent here. Some light notes of cherry, apple, and lemon lead to a nicely crisp, grassy finish. Nothing here rewrites the book, it’s just enjoyable and very easy to drink.
M: Appropriately light and crisp. It’s not entirely bone dry, however; but the light fizziness to the carbonation makes it one that could conceivably be chugged.
O: I like this one as simple refreshment on a hot day. It even has a modicum of substance to it - allowing it to escape the pratfall of mindlessness many brews of its ilk fall prey to.

Bottle. Clear gold with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is wheat, burnt toast, pilsner malt and green apple. Tastes like beer with light fruity notes. Thin crisp mouthfeel. Refreshing.

Not terrible as this is one of my least favorite styles! Very light & uninteresting! Not much left to say.

Bottle. Nose is fruity. Taste had some sourness with some nice malt sweetness. Maybe a little too sweet, but I like this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Birch & Barley. Golden with white head and decent lacing. Smells citric and crisp and metallic with a little cereal. Grainy and light. Just a smidge towards sweet (but not sweet). Would like it to be a bit crisper.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aromas, although not offensive, are not overly interesting. It’s primarily bread and grain. It pours a crystal clear yellow with a soapy, coarse white head which retains well and leaves above average lacing. The taste is a medium sweet with a light bitter. There’s lots of soft carbonation and an oily texture with a light body, so it goes down rather easily. The finish is kinda like a lemon scone, but more bready and grainy than sugary. There’s also some butter in there with some dry grass. The aftertaste lingers for a moderate amount of time and mostly consists of grains and cereal.

Although, not distinguishable in appearance, this is a refreshing brew. Crisp taste with a clean finish. Not bad.
