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!!!!!!!&

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Bottle shared by ryan. Pours clear and golden with a fluffy white head and a good amount of carbonation. A very nice looking pour. Flavor is dry and hoppy with a bit of funk. Very dry with a bit of citrus. Really nice summer beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma, with hints of citrus and wheat. Pours a clear light amber with a dusting of white head that quickly fades. Light flavor with a touch of grassy hops and thin malt flavor. Easy drinking, and accessible, but a pretty average beer overall.

Yellow and fizzy. Aroma is mild lemony citrus, and taste is the same but with a weird minerality that creates a spicy, mildly hoppy buzz into the finish. $6/pint.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.89 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a crystalline, light golden body with a smallish suds layer.
Smell: Cleanly grainy, with notes of simple garden flowers, light citrus, and a pinch of piquant white pepper, though it grows ever more lemony as it warms. So I say let this sucker warm up a smidge.
Taste: Lightly grainy malts, with no more than a bit of sweetness imparted overall. Floral, peppery hops with a bit of lemon rind and, for just a half second, some fresh Valencia orange juice. Moderate pinch of hop bitterness, too. Dry, relatively crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Works for me! Am I a terrible person to suggest this tastes like a light golden ale version of the Prima?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a fizzy white head. Big grassy aroma, bright sweetness, lovely bit of alcohol, really nice. Flavor follows, very much like Half Acre Gossamer, bright and grassy, citrus, very light malt base, a bit more astringent bitter than gossamer, light vanilla, really well done here. Medium/light bodied, clean glassy, fizzy carbonation.
