3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at the brewpub on 12/3/06: Pours a slightly hazy bright golden with a wispy-lacing thin white head. Lightly sweet pale malty aroma has some floral citrusy hoppy notes. Body starts with good light sweetness and smooth mildly bitter grapefruity hoppy balance and a touch of honey. Very drinkable and refreshing with lots of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap poured a clear golden color with a good lasting white head. Aroma was mostly citrus hops with a hint of malt sweetness. Taste had a brilliant hop presents with a good balance and small alcohol notes. Overall a great pale ale but not much of a blonde.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden appearance. Lemony hop aroma. Light palate, mild in body, strong citrussy grapefruit hop bite that takes over. Interesting twist on the golden style. Also tasted the cask version that displays the grapefruit citrus just as well but the smoothness and warmth lessens the harshness a little allowing a little balance from the malt.
