Tallahassee, Fl - Momo’s Pizza - on tap. Pours alight golden with little to no head. Brief hint of mint and fruit cocktail aroma. Flavor is mellow with some pears. light graininess, a hint of fruit cocktail and a hint of honey in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of spritziness to it which sits nice.

Yellow, mostly clear, nice dense white head. Clean, sightly corny aroma. Maybe a little grassy, was well. Dryish palate, some corn, some grass. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap from Momos in Tallahassee. Rating is after the fact - so sparse on details. Crisp thin bodied - easy drinking. Grain, honey and seemed like pepper in the finish. Little bit of tropical fruit. Fairly thin overall - but pleasant enough on a hot Florida day. Go Gators.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
6/19/10. On tap in a pint glass. Clear golden pour with a fuzzy yellow head. The aroma is grainy and a bit pukey, but overall quite light. The flavor is big corn chips with a hint of sweet and plenty of dryness. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Oldsmar Tap House...poured one of the most intriguing colors I’ve ever seen, a pale pink-tinged golden color which was most enticing. Nose had hints of some mild grain with a touch of honey. Heavily carbonated which seemed to work quite well with the brew....flavors consisted of very light toasted grains, honey and some odd berry-like notes. Good, sessionable brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear, pale, yellowish-golden color with a small, wispy head of off-white foam. A thin, soapy wash glazes the glass, breaking apart into small, scattered spots of lace. The aroma is simple, yet clean, showing a base of fresh cereal grain along with notes of creamed corn and flaked oats, with just a faint smattering of floral hops. Flavors follow right in line, again showing basic, clean grains, most prominently corn and cereal, with a touch of honey sweetness and a tiny dash of peppery petals. The body is on the thin side, yet balanced in terms of carbonation and crisp on the finish. Easy drinking, inoffensive little session brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… Clear, light yellow lager with a small, wispy, white head. The nose is of honey, grilled corn and warm, spent mash. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Flavor-wise, notations of pale grains and honey predominate. There’s some really decent bitterness here, but the folks in Gainesville stay true to style with grainy sweetness standing out. Finishes crisp, snappy, and then moderately sweet, but fairly coarse.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ CCB. Poured an extremely pale yellow color with a thin white head, looks odd. The nose is malt forward, with some earthy hops, light grain, and honey. Medium to thin body with fizzy carbonation and a slightly watery mouth feel. Flavor is mostly honey sweetness, some grassy hop notes as well as some more grain or cereal. Finishes with more honey.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at redlight. Pours a clear golden yellow color topped by a small, foamy white head that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of honey, cereal grain malts, corn, and some floral hops add bitterness. The flavor follows the same way the honey and cereal grain malts adding good sweetness to go with the floral hop bitterness. There is some light fruits and spice that peak through as well. A touch thin on the body with lively carbonation that leads to a crisp, dry finish. This is an easy drinking cream ale with a nice sweet flavor. Really easy to drink on those hot Florida days.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at FBG Fest 2010. Pours almost transparent gold with a big white head. Nose is honey, slight malt, and some grain. Flavor is a bit watery with edges of carbonation lifting up some of the honey flavor. Interesting, but it is a mild cream ale that is decent overall.
