3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a copper body with a fizzy white head. Toasted malt, Hints of dried fruit and raisin like aroma. Almost a light candy bubblegum aroma. Flavor is a bit gummy with cereal notes, best when served rather cold. Hints of fruit and a note of soap i could do without. Not bad, i thought it might be a drain pour for a buck seventy five.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Usually not one for blonde ales, but it was still refreshing. Clear bright golden, thin white head. Mouthfeel is light (duh) and hops definately around. Aroma is hoppy, taste is a little fruity.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Definitely more malt character than I expected. Had a slight hop character in the flavor but finished with mostly corn. Not a bad light beer but again, not a good beer. Not worth another purchase.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle into English pint glass. Pours a translucent golden-tan with a thick, carbonated head. Aroma is sweetness and unenthusiastic hops. Flavor is some sweet maltiness, some additional sweetness that I canít quite place, and stale grains. The palte is dry and thin. Overall, itís a light beer, so I think it deserves some credit for exceeding that company. It does not, however, need too much credit as a golden or blond ale. Someday someone will give me a good reason for NAís and light beers, but that day hasnít yet come.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from brewery. Clear light amber with large white head. Light caramel malt and graininess, crisp and dry. Grainy flavor up front with a caramel like sweetness and finishes dry with banana and subtle sprite undertones. Medium to light body that is hotly carbonated upfront and finishes thin and watery. Not as bad as some light beers maybe but all that enjoyable nor refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: Straight golden ale with smallish fractional top.
Nose : Snappy, crisp malty nose, hint of honey malt. Overall quiet light.
Flavor/Palate : Thin bodied , grainy character with some stickiness at finish. Lacking freshness and clean execution. Bland, lacking refinement. Brewing such light, gentle beer its mot easy task.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark golden color with a fair to significant white head sustained by a constant stream of bubbles. Has a crisp clean aroma of hops, malt, and perhaps corn. Taste is a watered down sweet caramel malt with minimal hop bitterness. Tastes good and would make a great summer quencher, but not much going on for a micro. More like a mid-level quality macro, bu not bad at all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold color with a thick frothy head that disappears quickly. Aroma has a bit of a caramel malt and some cereal grains. Flavor is malt and grains with just a hint of earthiness. Light bodied with mild carbonation and a nice malt finish. Kind of like a light version of Special Amber

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2007 16 oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was two fingers high and white. It reduced to a thin ring after a minute or two. Aroma was of paper mache and subdued husky grain. Dry on the tongue with a distinct onion note and cardboard flavor. Not a good beer and well overrated at the 13th percentile on the day I rated it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear copper with thin, somewhat weak, white head. The aroma is sweet lightly roasted malts, light dark fruitiness with sweet citrus and grape juice. The flavor starts with a little roasted maltiness but then cascades into a potpourri of fruitiness with cantaloupe, pears, granny smith apples, sweet Concord grape jelly, boysenberry preserves and hints of citrus. Seems like they took a thin amber ale and added lots of fruit juice to it.
