3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden-orange color (dare I say muted poppy) with a fluffy off-white head; itís effervescent and clear. Aroma is tangy, citrus fruity and sweet. Tastes sweet upfront, with prominent esters, a perfumy/floral note. Not sure which part of the tangy flavor/dry finish structure to contribute to the poppy seeds verses the belgian yeast (plus alcohol, hops, malt choices, minerals etc) but it works for me.
Falls between Between the three or four offerings that Iíve tried from Uncommon Brewers, this one seems to work the best overall, AND is closest to what would be expected from the beer style designated.

"this golden ale has a nice sweet, floral and herbal aroma, is light-medium bodied, and quite easy drinking. Nothing spectacular, but the sweetness and mellow belgian yeast go well together."

Really janked up can. Someone must have dropped it. The bottle shop owner didnít charge me for it, which is good because I thought I already rated it. Good karma. Rich honey and lemon nose. Cloudy amber, headless. Much less prominent honey flavor, applecore. A surge of dandelion, sudden but neither strong nor distinct. Raw potato finish. Despite the can being compromised, there was still carbonation, soft and unseen. Sessionable and unique.

Pours a murky, dark honey-golden color with a short-lived white head with a greenish hue. Green grape nose. Full mouthfeel that ends up feeling a little dry. Pickled corn that starts out mildly sweet but gets funky toward the finish.

Rated fr0m a can-full... p0ured int0 a glass, 0f c0urse. It had a slightly hazed yell0w b0dy with 0range tints, plenty 0f fast m0ving bubbles, and a m0dest (but sustained) creamy head. The ar0ma was faint - h0ney, grain, lem0n... kind 0f t0nicy. The flav0r, t00, was light - mildly sweet grain, a dash 0f lem0n, and a very mild earth and zest bitterness. Iím n0t really sure what the p0ppy added, but itís n0t a bad warm weather (0r s0 Iím imagining, in this p0lar Chicag0 Winter) brew.
