3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 12/03/2012. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a medium straw color with decent clarity. The head is a four finger white color with lowish retention for the ABV. The center of the head retains itself more thoroughly than the edges. Lots of patchy lacing, too.
S: Thereís the typical grapefruit aroma expected from Cascade hops, along with some lemony esters. As it sits in the glass, the crackery pilsner malt shines through slightly. Not an assertive aroma, but itís likable enough.
T: The taste is very simple, but the few dimensions it features are pulled off well. Initial lemon and grapefruit flavors, before being finished off by lightly sweet maltiness. A very good blonde ale, though hardly extreme or mindblowing.
M: It could be a little less watery in general, but this is so easy to drink. Hell, itís practically a chugger. The light body and dry finish only help the drinkability.
O: Who needs Bud Light when you have this? This isnít designed to be a Zombie Dust wannabe, itís designed to be drank by the six pack, or with a good meal. Very enjoyable as long as you donít expect explosive flavor.

Decent pale ale, some bitter hop notes primarily of fruits, apricot almost. Malt body heavier than youíd expect, but not bitter enough to be an IPA.

Meh followed by yuck. Some promising features but then metal flavors all over everything. Maybe skunked, but got two other beers from this brewery (canít image Utah ships out much beer) at a bottle shop and they were fine. Pass

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a yellow hue w/ large fluffy white head. Big fresh hop aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet and a light to moderate bitter finish. Tastes are floral, clover, citrus, and grass. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel, and clean finish. This may be one of the most enjoyable 4% beers Iíve ever tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine & More in Cherry Hill. Labeled a Four+ Wildfire. Pours a hazy straw with a towering white head that grips the top of the glass and stays there all day long. Mildly tart aroma with yeast and a little citrus. Pleasant and slightly sour apple flavor up front followed by malt and backed up with plenty of hops. Thin texture and a very dry, very crisp finish. This reminded me of a thin version of Duvel.

Aroma: Spicy floral aroma with some sweet citrus.
Taste: Bready and grainy malts upfront, with light notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon and herbs. Light bitterness.

A perfumed pale ale nose, this beer is lightly hopped and made for drinking. Soft on the palate with little bitterness.
