COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A best-of-breed English Style Summer Ale, this tail-wagger’s already fetched a real name for itself in competition. Our premium barley rolls over with domestic and imported Golding hops for a delicate bitterness and cold, wet nose.

Pours clear blond with small head, aromas are light, taste of roasted malts, solid golden ale muck better than a major golden ale

"delicate bitterness" as stated by the brewer is translated here into boring, sissy beer. Funny name, boring beer. they make better, so you can skip this one."

bottle from whole foods park city. pours golden with no head. Doesn’t leave much lacing in glass. looks a bit like cooking oil. There’s a slight hop note on the tongue but otherwise nondescript. Boring interpretation of a shitty style.

This bottle is six months old so I'm not so sure it isn't skunked. My review on this one is inconclusive.

Bottle. Honey barley malt and herbal citrus peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Honey and barley malt flavor. Watery palate. Okay.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Soft grassy, floral citrus and sweet cracker malt. Lighter orange color. Minor bitterness but mainly the smooth biscuit malt found in English blonds. Crisp and not as light as it seems at first. Nice session beer, not much else.

Patrickctenchi (3934) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours clear, medium gold with a short, white head. Barley malt, lemon, grain aroma. Grassy, crisp, grain flavor. Fairly mediocre.

I like it. Nice golden with a smooth golden taste. Nice fuggles. Easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Clear golden color with a bit of creamy white head. Good retention and ots of sticy lacing. Nose is mild with bicuit malt and grass. Lightly herbal. Tastes sweeter than the aroma would suggest and adds a crisper floral element. Nice amount of malty sweetness and it holds onto the florals without being overly sharp. Refreshing.

Pours a nice lightly hazy straw color with a small well retained head that leaves good lacing on the glass.

Aroma has a lot of raw grain, some maltiness… very mild leafy character, yeasty and in a way a touch metallic.

Flavor is mild, not bad though… it’s got a nice touch of leafy happiness…. some light but zippy enough bitterness, and a little bit of bright malty character. It’s more or less on the dry side of things, and I sure don’t mind it.

Really it’s pretty watery, it’s thin and not especially well served by the low carbonation… although there is a zippy sharpness to it that is the mouth feels saving grace.
Decidedly not something I’d go after again, although it’s enjoyable enough and not offensive in any way.
