Bottle at home. Clear darkish golden, good white head. Grassy hops, hint of something earthy on the nose. Clean, dry grassy palate with some hints of zesty hop. Nice refreshing summer brew, but nothing exciting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Bottled. Excuse me while I go all giggly. It may have been the company I kept or the mad dogs weather but this just scored all the way for me. Lovely light gold body, faintly floral aroma, tightrope balanced flavours (malts covered in liquid fruit) and a simple short finish.

Clear golden, small average pale head. Nice flowery hops on the nose, earthy grass, honey and grainy malts. Biscuit malty, flowery flavor, with mint and good herbal bitterness. Some citric fruits also. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation. Nice character and balance, pretty great for a Golden ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean gold colour, fine bead resulting in a good white head, lasts well down the glass. Fine aroma of fresh citrus fruit and vanilla. A well balanced palate has sweetish malt and nice acidity from the hops. The finish lasts well....nice beer!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, golden body with a short-lived, smaller than average white head that leaves some lacing. Moderate aroma that is quite sweet with fruity notes and some sweet honey. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitter, light dry and quite short finish. Some fruits and berries in the flavours, sweet honey in the back and some faint traces of sweet and overripe banana. Light bodied, a bit watery texture but still rather smooth, soft carbonation. Too boring and too sweet for such modest flavours and weak bitterness. Not actually bad, though.
