Smells up front a little funky, wet hay rotten cumquats. Pours light and golden with little head. Taste a little hippy and barely funky. Leaves no lasting taste wish it tasted more like it smelled.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Farmhouse in Burlington. Clear golden pour, average head. Really nice for the style, with a nose of floral and leafy hops mixed with good citrus notes. Flavor brings more bright hop character, with light lemon and tangerine, grass, and leaf. Mouthfeel is crisp, light bodied, and drinkable. Good session brew.

Overall, one of my favorite breweries. This beer is no different. Citrus hops and grassy/ malt flavor. Crisp finish, well balanced. Worth the try!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is hoppy with citrus and grassy hops. There is enough malt to add balance but it’s not a mostly malty beer aroma. The appearance is light gold with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitterness from start to finish and a touch of yeast at the very end. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall not that impressive but it is what most people are looking for in a summer beer.

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.
