Brilliant golden ale with inviting citrus fragrance of late added Golding hops. The fine hop and light malt aromas carry through to the palate to give an ale that is full but refreshing and with a clean bitter finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2010
Single bottle by from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s Beverage Depot: This pours a brownish orange body with a skinny head that quickly vanished without a trace. The aroma is light - dirty malt with some orchard fruit and a hit of metallica. The flavor is a bit cleaner but still finishes on a note of metallic bitterness. Not something that ’d knowingly repeat.

thegreenrooster (4030) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is almost a little yeasty fruit but not much after that. Flavor is some grainy, dirty malt. No hop profile to be found. Nothing redeaming about this.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Pour was light golden with a light crisp malt and slight hop aroma. Flavors were real mild and crisp with some slight citrus hop character accompanying the crisp light malt. Smooth and an alright brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6827) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-caramel color with a huge tan head. The aroma was tangy, malty and bitter with a light caramel note. The flavor was tangy, malty and sweetish with a lightly bitter and fruity undertone. Medium finish. Medium body. Of note according to the label and company web site the bottles in America are being brewed at High Falls in Rochester NY.

halfonit (1326) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Pours darker than I’d expect from a Golden/Blonde Ale. This brew pours an amber/dark brown color with a thick off white head. Aroma is full of sweeter malts up front with some caramel, wheat, slight hops, and a little brown sugar. Flavor has a lot of the same characteristics as stated above. Leaves a malt finish. Nothing really special.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Tasted 3/4/10. 12oz bottle. Pours filtered with an amber ruby hue. Layer of off-white head. Aromas of fruity esters and mild faint hops. Touch sweet caramel. Medium bodied and rather soapy. Bready malts and soapy hops. Undertones of candy and toffee. Toasty and dry. Decent.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Golden pour with a fizzy white head. Dry and light aroma of malt and some wet grass. Flavor is much the same. Light and grassy with a very mild sweetness hiding under it all. A bit watery and thin.

Alphadelic (2169) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Moves like saliva. This is geniunely terrible. Sour, sweet, grossness. This doesn’t smell of anything hop like. Malty and limp.
