3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Finger of head. A cloudy, light straw colored body.
A nice citrus (lemon and grapefruit) smell.
A great lemon bitter taste from beginning to end. A real summer lemonade. Ends with a sweet note. Great balance.
Crisp and clean texture. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
A really good summer brew. On the lighter side as a blonde but has great flavor.

Soft citrus aroma. Gentle golden colored body with a soap bubbled head that fades quick. Mild bitterness complimented by a subdued creamy malt character with citrus notes in the background. Has a tart finish that is refreshing and light.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy gold with a fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruit salad, lots of guava and papaya, sweet and fruity. Taste light and well balanced, lemony, and crisp. Slight over-carbonation prevents the palate from being truly smooth, but overall a great summer beer.

"Great for what it is - a tasty hopped up 4% session brew. Soft citrus peel and tropical fruit in the aroma and flavor. Sure goes down easy. Reminiscent of new belgiums hoptober. Good stuff."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-23-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The brew pours a nice crystal clear golden amber color with a billowy 1.5 finger white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is grainy and bready with hints of a grassy hop smell. Along with these aromas are some light citrus and floral notes.
Taste – The taste begins with a smoother malt and biscuit taste. As the taste advances it gains more and more graininess with some flavors of a light lemon and grassy hop coming to the tongue. By the end the grassiness gets quite a bit stronger and is joined by a bit of a haylike flavor to leave a crisp bready flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin and crisp with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are quite appropriate for the more grainy and grassy flavors of the brew and make it quite refreshing.
Overall – It is a rather refreshing brew overall but nothing all that out of the ordinary. A good go to for a more session style on a nice warm day.
