Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, brighter golden with a well-retained, sticky white head. The aroma picked up honey-kissed bread and lemony notes, with accents of grass and hay.. very fresh and well-balanced. The flavor found similar stuff.. mostly bready malts at the core, with lemon zest, grassy bitterness, and fairly salty character around.. salt, earth, and lemon zest on the crisp, refreshing finish.. tasty stuff. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. clean, crisp, and refreshing.. excellent example of the style.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear to slightly hazy orange yellow pour with white head, aroma has notes of lemon, grass, slight earth, touch of earth, slight biscuit and bread as well. Taste is a mix of toasted cracker, biscuit, some slight bread, some yeast, lemon, finishing fairly bitter and spicy.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of citrus and honey. The flavor is a smooth decent Blonde: citrus, some earthy grains, light bitterness in the finish. Some almost tropical notes at times, the lengthy dry earthiness is a bit rough. Decent.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that some some night retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light spicy and grassy hops, and a hint of pear. Taste is light to medium bodied, fruity golden grain malt with a short lived spicy hop flavor. Finish has a quick sharp bitterness, a hint of white pepper, then a toasted golden grain malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. Much better than your standard lawnmower beer. This summer ale has a nice flavor profile

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle. A bright white head tops a medium gold colored brew. This smells faintly of citrus, but it is hiding behind a relatively doughy nose. There is also a note of peanuts. The taste is like sucking on an orange peel while eating peanuts. There is an ever present raw potato vegetable twang through each drink. Still, this is a decent, middle of the road golden ale.

Pale yellow color with a medium head. Bready, wheaty aroma. Kind of a honey and wheat flavor. Dry finish.
