Bottle. Closest thing to a macrobrew that bells makes. Pale ale but tastes like a light beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale pale hazy gold with a thin white head that quickly recedes. The light film that's left leaves minute amounts of lace. The aroma has a lot of lemon zest with small hints of a hoppiness and a little piny aspect. The flavor is overwhelmingly lemon zesty. And then it fades into a taste that you'd expect with a macro lager with a hint more of a hop kick

UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 [Bottle] perfect straw color, nearly opaque from the haze with a fluffy white head from the heavy carbonation. Aroma is slightly metallic, straw, grain, a touch of lemon zest and apple skins with a slightly sulfuric/skunky note that isn’t great. Taste has the same thing going on with a nice bite to the tongue. Grains, pale malt, sharp lemon spritz and a faint apple note. Hops are more vague, seem dried out and musty. Easy drinker and refreshing, but nothing too stand-out about it. Kind of vapid, but I guess its purpose it to be light.
[Tap] revisited on tap. Much more present lemon-lime character in the flavor, with a nice grainy underbody. Loses the sulfuric notes I often find in the bottles (wonder why?). Still nothing spectacular here, but it’s a much better beer on tap, going from quite mediocre to pretty decent.

12 oz bottle. Bottled 03/29/13. (Macadoodles) Branson, MO.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Sweetish fruity hops and mild bitterness in the aroma. Nice!
Very tasty flavour. Piny and resiny hops and moderate bitterness. Malty balance. Good one!

My first impression is that the taste is good, with bits of citrus. Then the finish is very hoppy and bitter - it gets worse as time goes on. It’s interesting but I wouldn’t want to have another.

Before even pouring this beer, I smelled the skunkiness coming from the bottle, and the aroma, once in the glass, is a blend of skunk, dough yeast, and a hint of floral hops; however, it looks very pleasing in the glass due to the hazy golden color with both a large white head and lots of dark, fine-grain sediment floating throughout. The taste is quite bitter upfront, but that fades quickly to let the slight sweetness and touch of sourness become apparent. Finally, the mouthfeel is a fairly nice complement to the flavor due to the medium body, average carbonation, slightly sticky texture, and a slightly bitter finish.

Picked up while on vacation in Michigan. I always try to drink local during my travels. This tasted better around the campfire, but at home it just is average. A golden ale that is crisp, with some hoppy bitterness.
