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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler. Pours a lightly hazed pale gold with a thin-moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Aroma is sharp grapefruit hops and not much else. The flavor begins with weak malt followed by grapefruit pith. Soft mouthfeel despite all of the hoppiness. Light bodied. So so.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at MASHOUT 2010. Pours a light pale golden straw with a nice lasting sticky oily white head and good lace. Aroma is a nice blend of hoppiness, you donít really get the full-on citra although there is some decent pine and citrus in there, light lemon as well- with almost a grassy mineral citrus and mint thing going on like crystal hops- some spice earth and orange oil. Flavor is nice crispy bready light clean malts to let the hops shine through- more oily citra, grass, spice, herbal and flowery all in one- slight slick oily soap as it warms too much, but the crisp clean malts and light mineral keep it easy drinking. Nice summer beer for sure.
