1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy, perfumey and a touch skunky. The flavor was tangy and tart lemon, windex, perfume and a bit of skunk. Long, tart windex finish. Light body. Not good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light golden from tap with a thin white head that leaves no lacing. A lot of aroma with big grapefruit notes on the nose. Nice floral hoppiness on the tongue which finishes neat and clean. Frankly i thought this was a pilsner at first which is a compliment since most blonde ales bore the shit out of me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear, blonde ale with a smallish white head but the many bubbles hold a thin white head. Lacing is intricate and white. The aroma is bitter and earthy and more inviting than anything else. The flavor starts with a refreshing bite and tastes like bittering hops and full, German, crystal malts. This beer satisfies in all the ways that you want it to right now.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from SL. The pour was straw to slight orange, ok head and lacing. The aroma was grassy, pilsy, faint wheat. The flavor was pilsy malty with some wheat elements (not sure it was really in there), assertive bitter grassy pine hops. The mouthfeel was full malt w/ hop bite, refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden into the glass, with an initially fizzy head that diminishes quickly to a ring, leaving light ring lacing. The nose is of deep pine resin. Tastes a bit like an American take on the German pilsner style. Lots of pilsner malt, some citrus in there, finishes with some pine. The body has more complexity and substance than a German Pils. Decent, goes down well during summer. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Grapefruit and spice flavor. Not usually a big fan of goldens, but this one was pretty good. A little strong on the sharp citrus flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent golden color, little head. Aroma is big and hoppy- nice and sweet with prominent floral tones. Taste is bitter like an IPA but sweet honey taste also present. Very refreshing, not too overpowering. As advertised good for summer. Active on the palate, mildly bitter aftertaste, definitely could drink a few on a hot summer day.
