pours out yellow without any head at all. taste is sort of rich and malty, fairly smooth to drink too. crisp finish. good if it was hot outside, or you just felt like drinking a 12 pack of something. not bad, not the best, but certainly drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rich yellow color without much head, indeed, even appearing flat relatively soon after pouring. Dry aroma, some hops obvious in a straw way, but also suggesting something floral. The flavor jumps out a bit more sweetly with some malt life, with a palate that matches with a bit of thickness and oil, but still the ending is mostly dry with a hint of metal in the bitterness. Overall the effect is not very satisfying, being both limp for lack of carbonated zing, and a bit off-putting in the flavor dimensions.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, a little floral. A light to medium bodied blond ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of honey flavors. Hops are slightly spicy and for a blonde ale it is fairly aggressively hopped. It is light flavored and refreshing, It would be a decent choice for a beer on a hot summer day. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
No aroma. Thin head, yellow/gold. Malty, full mouthfeel. Balanced, lasting bitterness. Good, but certainly not unique in any way.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The after its escape from the 12-ounce brown bottle resides in the Nonick glass a cloudless amber color with the head upon the pour moderate in size, semi creamy in texture and the color a winsome light tan, the resultant lace a fine coating surrounding the glass. Nose has a pleasant malt sweetness, a touch of fresh plowed dirt, fresh and pleasant to the senses, start has a mild sweetness, the malt decent and the top light to middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is pleasantly carbonated the hops adequate for the style and the aftertaste droughty, a nice drinking beer that lies easy on the palate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle-pours a nice golden yellow hue with a small white head-wispy. medium carbonation coming up the center of the beer. noble hop, grassy aroma with touches of honey. flavors are light, crisp and mostly grassy. noble hops then finish slightly citric. To me, this is one of the better ska beers. This beer had some decent lacing as it went down. Nothing offensive about this one compared to some of their other offerings.
