ChainGangGuy (4770) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Lightly hazed, pale gold body with a bubbly, white head and some initial soda-like effervescence in the body. Smell: Soft, transient scents of soft malted barley and wheat with well-integrated hints of honey, meadow flowers, spice, and lemon wedges. Taste: Blend of light pale and wheat malts with a modest amount of tanginess and sweetness. Freshly floral, lemony hop character with ample bitterness to balance. Light acidity. Small, delicate sip of honey wine dashed with a bit of pepper prior to the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Fairly light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Would pair nicely with sauteed sea bass. Itís light and simple, but yet itís also pleasant and refreshing, exactly what I needed on this hot, sweltering summerís day.

LilBeerDoctor (3713) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of wheaty/bready malt, some light fruits, clove, and pepper. Flavor of sweet fruits and citrus initially with a bready malt finish. Basic but good. Very drinkable. Not too wheaty actually. Iím surprised by such low ratings of this beer, I found it very enjoyable. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a thin white head. Aroma of burnt grains, sweet malts, and hints of citrus. Taste very light and refreshing. Earthy, dirt, leaves, caramel, roasted malts and barley. A nice balance between malts and the subtle hoppiness on the back bone. Very enjoyable. One of the only Pale Aleís I have liked.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head that dissapates fairly quickly. Aroma is banana, descent lacing, medium body, and low carbonation. Taste is malty banana, some lemon, and a hint of clove peaking out. More malty than her sister Hop Sun. Good summer time beer.
