Bottle. Musty aroma, clear, gold, lots of carbonation. Crisp with a finish that lingers and is a little stale. I am not a big fan of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a soft and clean straw yellow with a sticky white head and nice lacing. Grassy and lightly citric nose, some wet hay and bready malt. Pretty hoppy flavor, spicy bitterness. Notes of hay and fresh cut grass. Nice and clean, light bodied with a dry finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a quarter inch white head that lingers. Taste is of malt, grass, hay, dust, citrus and some hops. Has a nice aroma that is similar. Has a nice full body and finishes rather clean. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A pretty good summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. These guys’ lagers have been pretty boring, so hopefully this is different. Clear golden appearance with a fluffy, pearl white head. Grainy, straw, somewhat dry, a bit musty aroma. Cracker, grainy pale malty, hay flavor with some light vanilla notes. Easy enough to drink but boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cool looking bottle but not impressed with the beer. Citrusy hops in the nose as expected, but that is mixed with a lot of grainy malt and bread aromas. Similarly, in the taste it starts crisp but ends with a bland grainy aftertaste, that is actually a bit watery. Waste of a good bottle design.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Of course you beat me to this rating Beau! 12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white frothy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grassy hops with pale malts. The taste is pale crackery malts with grassy hops. Medium bodied. Decent, but kinda bland and why breweries think summer = less flavor is beyond me. Summer sucks enough already, at least give us something decent to drink.

Draft at Vabf2012:Weak grassy nose. Clear golden, thick head. Light body and flavor. Toast and malt notes. Refreshing, but weak.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pale straw, thin haze, large fluffy white head, vibrant carbonation. Pale straw and grassy nose. Sweet mealy grassiness up front. Not terribly dry or crisp, but at least sweeter than others. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Sweet grassy finish, a bit of sweet straw and hay. Not bad, average, not too crisp, but at least sweeter than others.   Thanks Dallas
