4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - Fruit and some spice. Smells crisp and fresh with just a tinge of alcohol content present. Smells better as the glass empties.
Appearance - Clear and golden with a nice 1 finger head that persist throughout the majority of the session. Light in color to match the summery flavor.
Taste - A medium amount of bitterness for a blond ale, but absolutely welcome. The hoppy scent is aided by the hoppy finish that lingers. Bitterness leaves a fresh taste that persists, but not too hoppy to resist throwing back a few. Tastes floral with a sweet caramel malt in the background. No off flavors I can recognize.
Palate - Light and playful on the palate. Bitter finish that lasts, but isnít unpleasant. Light body, overall lighter beer with the perfect amount of carbonation and flavor for a summer day.
Overall - Great beer that fits in well with hoppier golden ales. Akin to Victory Prima Pils in the bitter light ale sense, but clearly a different family of hops. Will be drinking this again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Single bottle. Dated enjoy by Aug 2, 2016.
A: Pale yellow pour with tall frothy head that retains well. Little visible carbonation but clumps of lace .
S: Herbal hop scent with slight dry bready note.
T: Grassy hops half bitter half sour. Malt note also seems sour but not in a good way.
M: Low-ish carbonation makes the light-medium body seem lifeless.
O: Canít believe I donít like this more. Maybe a bad bottle, but probably not a repeat purchase.

Pours a slightly cloudy, pale yellowish gold with a thin white head. The aromas are very clean light fruit & bread. Nice and even light bitterness, and smooth body with some light fruit & grain coming through in the taste. Clean & easy drinking ale.

Pours a vibrant yellow color with a floral aroma. A simple malt flavor with a light fruitiness to the beer. Refreshing and tasty with a minor malt aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Protein-impregnated, grainy, strawy aroma, mild citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of lemon zest. Taste is slightly dry, citrusy hoppy, minimally strawy, pale malty basis, hints of lemon zest; rather light, monotonous and slightly watery.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a somewhat cloudy straw color. About one and half fingers white soapy head. Itís a runny head, but thereís good retention, and runny lacing.
Aroma is earthy hops. Thereís plenty of citrus and grapefruit. I smell some grains, but the hops are quite powerful, it drowns out most everything else.
Taste is hop forward. Citrusy and lightly malty. Thereís not a lot to say about it, but I donít think it is mean to be complex by any means.
Mouthfeel is light body. Itís very light, refreshing. Maybe a little unbalanced, too much hops and citrus and not enough malt. But highly drinkable.
Overall, this would make a great summer beer. I love the label. This would make an amazing beer to sit and watch a baseball game. This reminds me a lot of a pilsener, and thatís okay, because I like pilseners. Yeah, this one is worth a try.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
BB 22 DEC 2015. Poured a clear golden colour with a two-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation moderate with fine to medium bubbles. Aroma with sweet malt plus citrus/lemon and hints of hops; all moderate and none over-powers the other. Taste subtly of lemon followed by a very slight bitterness. Light body. Crisp, refreshing, clean, light and smooth but a bit bland. Very much like many other macro-brewed golden ales.
