3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at smallbar Division. Pours an obvious gold with a sticky white head. Nose is lightly hoppy. Some resin and citrus, but mostly quite malty. A bit muddled, really. On taste, still seems a bit meh. Some citrusy hop notes and some biscuity malts. Not a whole lot going on and not enough to keep me coming back to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, yellow, and fizzy with a small white head. "Fresh" smell. My nose detects a bit of lemon, fresh cut grass, floral hops, and barley/grains. Lightly sweet with medium bitterness. Light body, thin, kind of fizzy. I found this pretty refreshing on a hot afternoon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very pale yellow with active carbonation and an angel white head. Aroma is sharp but with hay-like overtones. Taste is deceptively hoppy (in a pleasant way). Malty sweet blended exceptionally well with hop bite leaving a very crisp dry finish. Lingering taste has notes of bitterness and sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a straw golden with a succinct, tight, and solid white head that fades fast sadly. Grassy hops, bready malts on the nose. Flavor is very dry and slightly juicy, some more grass, some cracker-like malts. Not too sweet, but also very light bitterness. A great balance and easily drinkable. I like the taste of my mini-burp. Always a good sign. Best summer seasonal I’ve had in some time. Victory!!!!!!!&

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2012 Nice floral hop nose with crackery malts, light sugar and a touch of lemon. The taste is quite dry and lightly bitter, with snappy, bright and crisp malt, light lemon and floral hops, a touch of hay and clean yeast. Light to medium body with moderate, but gentle carbonation. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.
