2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours yellowish-gold with a small, white, fast-fading head. Aroma is not very robust-- I get mild yeasts, honey, and some faint floral notes and thatís about it. Taste at the beginning is not sweet, not anything really, followed by a hint of bitterness, and a finish of, well, not much. Palate is light, a little heavy on the carbonation. Not very exciting, but would serve as a good refreshing drink on a hot summerís day. Wouldnít seek this one out.

Aroma is slightly gritty grains, yeast with slight overtones of bananas and fruit, hard to place what kind. The flavor is fruit (raspberry or cherry), bananas/cream, yeast and a bitter finish. Surprisingly complex for a Golden Ale, Iíll have to try this again.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. First reviewed 2/16/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
In the glass, Prairie Pat is a golden amber color, mostly transparent with a bit of haze and several floating pieces of floating particulate matter. A 1 cm creamy white head is not very impressive. The head fades rather quickly and leaves a light ring of lace.
There is not that much going on here. The nose has faint notes of sweet malts, noble hops, and a bit of honey, but that is pretty much it.
The flavor is delicate, but it improves on what I was expecting from the aroma. Light bready malt provides the backbone to support Saaz and Sterling hops, which impart a floral, spicy, and herbal quality, and giving it just a bit of fruity depth. There is a bit of honey at the finish, giving it a pleasant sweetness. This is more light and simple than strong and powerful, but itís not bad.
Can Two Brothers trademark this mouthfeel? Bubbly yet smooth and creamy, with enough carbonation to keep each sip very clean. Light to medium bodied.
Although not the time of year for it now, I could see myself having a few of these on a hot summer day out at a BBQ. There is just a little more going on here than 312, the light ale I normally find at such gatherings. Delicate, but not one of the more enjoyable beers I have had from Two Brothers.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A smooth easy drinking ale. Low hops somewhat sweet. Not overly complex but good. The best thing about it is that it is gluten free and actually tastes like a beer! Check out the info on the two brothers website before drinking if you are gluten sensitive. I imagine most folks on Rate beer arenít gluten sensitive but you may know someone that is and misses beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at witts. Poured golden with finger of white head. Not a fan of much from two brothers but liked this. Fresh fruity smell. Slightly bitter and hoppy for this style but really smooth. Would have it again

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear gold with as much head as you want which quickly disappears. Aroma is a light beer alcohol aroma and flavor follows with a bit of a sourness. Dry in the back of your throat.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery. Bright golden pour that appears very still in the glass. Aroma of Carmelized sugar. Taste is cereal malt followed by a blast of Saaz and Golding hops, followed by white bread malt. There isnít the sweetness or smoothness youíd expect from athe Belgian yeast. Thereís also a lot of flavorsint the glass but unfortunately they arenít tied together at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at RNH. Hazy golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is lightly dusty with a touch of light hoppiness. Softly fruity and a little bit crisp. Slightly bready malts. A nice, simple session ale.

Draft at RnH with Brendan, Andrew, Streets, and Bloosh. Pours a bright orange body with no head. Aroma is light fruits and grains. Mouthfeel is spritzy with notes of citrus fruits, grainy malts, and a light sweet spice. Eh.
