Itís the perfect beer for Spring. Prost!

Not much in the aroma. A nice orange hue. This has a great first crisp bite. The beer is quite nice. Light yet with some Carmelly list flavor. Pleased.

12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Steinís in Rathdrum, ID. Pours clear gold with a medium collapsing off-white head. Aroma is grainy, SweeTarts, lemon rind, bready. Taste is lightly bittersweet, bready. Carbonation and body are medium. A nice, simple, easy-drinking brew.

Bottle from union beer house. Pours a darker golden color. Aroma of cidery malt. Taste is grassy and floral with hops with an incredibly crisp finish. No lingering bitterness and not overly malty either. I like it. I would get a sixtel of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1760) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 9, 2013
A bright brown with a real fluffy white head. The nose is malty with a crisp lager yeast character and some lightly peppery hops. There is an immediate burst of light bitterness. This then gives way to a real buttery popcorn sweetness which subsides giving an interesting bitter finish. Very drinkable, a great addition to their line-up.

Cybercat (3489) - Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Comes out of the tap an attractive clear amber with a decent pale golden-tan head - not thick, but that is apparently an artifact of the pour. Malty aroma has notes of banana, grassy hops and spice. Flavor has notes of malt, hops, banana, horehound and a snipped of cloves & cinnamon. Smooth, satisfying texture has a persistent fizz and leaves a hoppy, fruity finish. Long live the Columbia hop!

weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Smooth texture, mild hop flavor. Medium amber pour with a thin white head. Good mix of malts and hops - this one may be one of the better "session beers" Iíve had.

Dark Orange with a fairly clear appearance and the carbonation appears fairly moderate; Lacing is also fairly abundant.. Aroma has some fairly strong yeast & barley notes backed up by a mild Pils-grassy scent. The flavor has a strong yeast & barley profile backed up by a hefeweizen-like spicy zing. Body is moderate in weight and the carbonation is fairly mild. A decent and drinkable steam beer, but the spiciness I couldíve done without.
