Draught at 2006 Craft Lager Festival. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is citrus hop, malt (straw, hay), yeast (dough). Medium sweet dough and yeast flavor, grassy, hay and straw, dry citrus finish. Light bodied and refreshing palate.

Tap at the brewpub. Light yellow and hazy. Nose of lemon, oranges, citrusy and very tart. Taste starts off soapy with some light citrus flavors. Astringent and fades on the end. Very light body. Not that good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 On tap 2 the brewpub. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of Pine-Sol and citrus, light herbs. The flavor was more Lemon-Sol, with minimal bitterness in the finish. Light body with light carbonation. Gah! This beer almost seemed promising nosing it, but just became another household cleaner afterward.

On tap at brewery for GABF 08. Clear orange pour. Very light citrus with little else going on. Flavor was kind of like a kamakazi...strange.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was white with good retention and lacing. Smelled citrusy, but there wasn’t much else. Slightly sweet on the tongue with subdued toffee. The description on the menu mentioned that there were some herbs added at some point, which I guess were responsible for the strange green leafy note that was difficult to get a handle on. Light and refreshing, but not that great.

Light golden bronze with a crisp wisp of head. Piquant, herby/woody aroma with a hint of citrus. Pleasant herby flavor with honey-lime finish. Quite an enjoyable, quaffable, refreshing herbal brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2006. Clear gold. Nose is an odd fruit and herbal/medicinal mix. Taste is grainy but still with some medicinal notes. Light lemon comes through, citrus peels, light spice and grassy notes. Body is light and crisp. Mild carbonation feel to it. Ends with more herbal/medicinal notes, grains, and citrus. This was different....

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The thin head compliments its pale honey color. The smell was this beers’ most interesting asset - hoppy sweetness, sugar, a glimmer of lemon, slightly reminiscent of a Belgian Trippel. But the intrigue stops here. An initial sudsy, soda-pop taste yields into a nonexistant body flavor. Heck, even Pabst has a "taste," albeit a frightful one. The aftertaste fizzles on the tongue like a bland amaretto liqueur. Overall, this beer lacks any captivating flavors. It is a reasonable "sipper" beer, decent for a thoughtless occasion.

Pour is golden yellow and clear with a dense off white head...totally citrus (not hoppy citrus, but sweet) nose...taste like limeade...how could someone even finish this???

On tap at the Wynkoop Brewery 9/27/06. Pale gold, extremely clear, thin white head. Aroma is really nice--citrusy and grassy...sassafras like, with some honey. Flavor--very light, honey, vanilla. Some residual sweetness. Interesting flavors - very nice. Overall, definitely a different kind of beer...but I like it. Lots of honey and herbs.
