3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kris Wines, London, shared with Slothez. Golden pour with a slight haze and a mid sized off white head. Aroma was earthy hop, herbs and a dash of citrus. Light bodied. Mid-range hop bitterness in the flavour, which had sweet malt and further citrus notes. Somewhat on the thin side of the tracks. Drinkable, but largely unassuming and forgettable fayre.

Pale yellow pour. Not much head, but some small lacing. Not much aroma. Slight hoppy flavor, not much bitterness. Nice bite from the carbonation. Finishes clean.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Armanetti’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed while watching an unnerving week 11 NFL Bears game. Appearance a bright orange with a thin white head that laces to the glass. Aroma mostly of caramel malt, slightly bready, a bit of hops, smells nice. Taste is crisp, retains the caramel malt, slightly chewy, medium body and lightish carbonation. It’s a solid beer, nothing really stands out with it, nice balance.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle that poured a plae golden color with a large frothy white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops a little bit of lemon zest is present. Biscuity malt.
Taste is the same. Some sweet biscuity malt, followed by some mild grassy and citrus hops. Small slightly metallic aftertaste.
It’s a smooth drinking beer, with some lively carbonation. A little watery. Drying finish. Not a bad session beer but nothing I’d ever seek out again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got a free bottle at the Brew’s Best Beer Fest on my trip to Vegas. USDA organic with a bottled date of 09/30/11. Pours a slightly lighter golden colour with a frothy warm cap that stays a while and creates patchy and fluffy lace. Beautiful fresh aromas of hops (mostly cascade) giving out grapefruit and pine scents. Then, you feel the light 4% alcohol average. Very light mouthfeel and taste. Mild hop is still present, but not much bitterness with a quick wet finish. A overall really nice light beer for those who are looking for this (kicks Coors Light ass).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a light mix of citrus hop and some lemon zest. There is some sweet biscuit malt in the background as well.
T - Sweet biscuit malts with some citrus hop and light bitterness. Through the middle, some bready malts and some lemon come through. Finish is a mix of biscuit and some lemon zest.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Smooth and very crisp.
D - Very drinkable. The flavors could be a bit stronger, but this is a very sessionable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a clear bronze body with a huge rocky head that left chunks of lace pasted to the glass. The aroma is a sweetish blending of grainy malt and lightly tart citrus scents - range and tangerine. This balanced blend continues into the flavor followed by a soft hop bitterness. Pretty decent.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Chips Wine & Beer. It pours a nice coppery color with a medium head of tight, off-white foam. The nose is on the hoppy side. A little pine, grapefruit, and grass. Perhaps a bit stale. The flavor is watery with a straight grain and very watered down pine hop note. Thin body with very aggressive carbonation and a somewhat dry finish. What starts off promising leaves you wanting. Very mediocre.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Tons. Hazy yellow-orange head with about a half inch of white foam. Grainy aroma with some light citrus and herbal hops. Citrus, lemon, floral hops with a grainy backbone make up the flavor. Mediocre brew, but not bad by any means.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ 15th Ave. Hophouse... Poured amber-orange with a white head, nice lacing. Mild body, decent carbonation. Earthy, danky hops with a strong malt sweetness that was a tad overpowering. Some sips it seemed soapy, some sips contained herbal, tea-lead spiciness. Short, faint finish. Low bitterness.
