Transparent gold, low effervescence, large bubbled white head dies fast. Heavy grass hops, lightly dusty, corn. Flavor is less hoppy, more corn and grain, earthy bitter, dry finish accents quality, more grassy noble hops in the end.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Victory. Golden with ample white head. Absolutely amazing smell of Noble hops, earthy, floral, natural perfume, spicy. Although malty, rather creamy and sweet the flavors are divine. Just into medium bodied. Can hops this good be grown in the USA?

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks like a pale lager, smells a little nicer than one, but tastes amazing! This is a deceiving beer, bright orange with no head and timid aroma. But the flavor is fantastic. tastes like candy with a bitter grassyness. It’s different and very good. Very nice

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Lots of malt, cereal and bread, mostly.
Appearance: Clear gold with a thick, white head.
Taste: Medium sweetness balanced by a light bitterness.
Palate: Light-medium body; crisp, clean texture, decent finish.
Overall: Really nice, clean beer. The 6.7 ABV isn’t readily apparent, and the beer’s smooth and well balanced.
