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 isn’t 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.

Overheard: "There’s a burning house in the Falls with your name on it." "It’s probably vacant."

Not very good. Tastes like a big brand beer with generic flavors. Nothing really stands out.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is doughy, grapefruit, perfume--all kind of mild. Pours hazy pale yellow with a medium white head that falls after a minute into a skiff of foam. Taste is much more bitter than I was expecting; also has a bit of tartness. Tastes more like an American Pale than a Golden Ale. Crisp, refreshing, highly carbonated. Nice beer. BTW, it expired two months ago, but it seems perfectly fine.

"More pilsnerish to me than I was expecting. Nice floral crisp hop presence and light grainy sweet malt for balance. Refreshing and tasty though not a standout."

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A bit bitter for my taste. Very hoppy if that's your thing. I've had it before and remember it tasting different.
