Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of cereals and slight english hops. Taste is a bit fruity with some light cereals husk and not too bitter. Body is medium and carbonation high. Just OK.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber into a nonic glass. No born on date.
Aroma - Nose is primarily floral hops with faint malt/ cooked corn. Slightly metallic as the beer warms.
Appearance - Beige complexion. Thin band of white lacing coats the rim of the glass. Fluffy white head.
Taste - Sweet bread, toasted malt followed by fruit (apricot) and balanced with lemony, but more prominently, earthy hops. Empty finish.
Palate - Light bodied, lending to an unsatisfying overall experience. Within the style, 5% typically lends a more fuller, chewier body. This one leaves you hanging.
Overall - Used to go nuts for this stuff in college. A good a gateway beer, as its just interesting enough to steer you away from the usual suspects.

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small quickly diminishing beige head that leaves little lacing. Faint aroma of hay. Lightly bitter, average carbo, light to medium body and a brief lightly bitter finish. Not as bad as I suspected it would be, or shall I say, better than expected.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Winooski Beverage, 8/12/15
Aroma: The nose has grainy and bready malts, a little earth, some pale malt, and a bit of corn
Appearance: It pours an unclear amber color with a thin, beige head, and average lacing
Flavor: The flavors are similar to the aroma, some light sweetness and light bitterness
Palate: The feel is only okay in my opinion, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Fairly average beer for me. It’s not memorable at all. Isn’t close to the best out worst thing I’ve tried. Just very okay, average, and unremarkable.

Draft at our hotel in VT. Free so that's a plus. Clear dark gold. Corn syrup aroma. The taste adds fruit esters and light floral hops. Light crisp bite on the feel and finish. Not bad. Plain and easy.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at the source. Pours a clear Amber color with small tan bubbly head. Aroma was malty, vegetable, bready. Flavor followed the nose. Light body and texture, lively carbonation, and smooth finish. Not very good.

This is way better than its composite score. Really nice reddish orange pour with decent head. Aromas of fruity floral hops and sweet bread. Taste is hops first then malt in the middle with a slightly bitter finish. Really dig this.

On tap at the brewery. Wasn’t a fan of this one, with some unpleasant finishing flavors for me. Gonna have to step things up if they want to compete.
