Floral, bready, and caramel aromas, with some mild, dusty notes. Clear bronze, with a fairly lasting, off-white head. Clean and well balanced, with toasty, nutty malts and earthy bitterness. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean finish.

"Aroma and flavor a light pleasant mix of cereal and grassy hops. Delicate bouquet, maybe a little toast. Good job on the style though probably not good enough to go back to."

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear amber color with a one finger off white head that has a moderate level of persistence. The head fades after a few minutes of time to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of a more grainy smells with some lighter roasted malt and bready smells. With these aromas are some lighter notes of a more citrus and floral hop smell mixed with the lightest amount of a caramel sweetness.
Taste – The taste begins with a more bready flavor mixed with some caramel sweetness. There is a little bit of a roasted malt flavors come more toward the middle of the taste along with some hop of a more grapefruit citrus variety. At the end, more hop flavors come to the tongue, this time of a more grassy flavor, which in the end leave a lightly hopped and crisper malty flavor to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather nice for making a crisp and rather easy drinking brew as this one is meant to be.
Overall – While not a flavorful powerhouse, it does have a nice easy drinking and refreshing taste with just enough complexity to not be boring, but not too much too take away from its more session like (at 4.7 % abv) and easy drinking qualities.

12 oz bottle on lake Murray The ale poured a clear light amber with average off-white head. This was an ale with full flavor of malt with some spice. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The ale finished with a slight sweetness. This was a nice Spring Ale for the river or lake.

Aroma is grass,fruit... Very lagery. Quite tame. Flavor is floral, lightly spicy, uninteresting. Boring_ and not something I’d drink again.

Red brown pour. Aroma of caramel, creamy. Tastes creamy slight grassy hops like a british pale ale. Tastes of roasts, caramel. Creaminess to palate - I like the yeast used here. the columbia hops are not very prominent. Seems like they’re there just for bittering.

Pours more gold than anything with white head. Some light hop pine and a bit of malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Decent, but average.
