3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Sierra Nevada. Clear golden colored beer with white foam. Has some nice floral hops and a touch of citrus to it. Sort of a drier malt profile with some cracker and a bit of bread. Slightly toasty. There’s a bunch of grassy bitterness to to it as well. Nice overall and sort of refreshing. Though maybe a touch on the bitter side.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at burger. in Santa Cruz. Pours clear golden with a fine white head. Aroma is pretty tame/lame. Grainy with lovely accents of dog food. Flavor is much better, albeit not very characterful. Cereal grains mostly. No trace of the ’bright’ ’floral’ hops they talk about in the description. Pretty standard blonde ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. The aroma is a bit floral initially, before a biscuity sweet maltiness takes over. A little spicy, too. Transparent golden body with a smallish white head present. Spicy, herbal hoppy flavors present to start. Light grassiness follows. Some toastiness comes though in the middle with some mineral hints. Very drinkable, crisp, and snappy. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on tap at the Sierra Nevada Mothership/Tap Room on 6/22/2011. This golden ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized fairly dense white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is cereal, grainy, fruit and sweet with some hoppiness. A medium bodied golden ale. The malts are cereal fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and citrusy. Very nice carbonation, lots of little bubbles.This beer has the sweetness and fruitiness of a golden with the hoppiness of an IPA of a pale ale. Interesting combination. Crisp and clean, light and refreshing with a nice dry finish. A great beer to sip on a 100 degree Chico day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
