Aroma= very light biscuity malt, with suble hopping earthy
Appearance= yellow to light gold, ok head and carbination
Flavor quickly fading maltiness into an interesting earthy/dirty hop flavor coupled with possible yeaty notes
Palate= med light, I was a little disappointed here
Overall= an ok beer. I probably would not buy it again, sort of lifeless, possibly a transition beer for masses.
Poured into the closest thing I could find to a pint glass... frothy 2 finger head.. the brew is a crystal clear straw color.
Nose is wheat and a little bread.. maybe some grassy hops, but I could be imagining things..
Flavor has more toasty notes and an unexpected caramel quality that is lite but definitely present.. the body is a bit thin with the bubbly carbonation.. Travlr (24307) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Draft at the source. Clear yellow color, solid sheets of lacing. Aroma of light lemon. Taste has subtle citrus. Plain. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from trade rated using backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat malt, mild sweetness, light caramel, mild citrus, yeast, fairly clean. Not too bad for what it is. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013

A: pours yellow golden with less than a finger of off-white foam which immediately falls to a sheet of the same with bordered rim. excellent clarity. No lace.
S: Sweet and malty with some banana esters and some wheat tones. Really nice for the style.
T: Again, sweet, with malts and wheat tones. Again, some banana esters. Some corn tone as well.
M: Light bodied with moderately light carb with a semi dry finish.
O: Good beer. Really sessionable, would love to see this one in a can.
Serving type: bottle

12floz/355ml bottle to a Blue Moon glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Pretty yeasty and malty. Not much going on. Maybe the teeniest tiniest hint of spice.
Appearance: Translucent, slightly hazy bright yellow body with a small-moderate white head. Pretty nice lacing.
Taste: Interesting. Bready, a tiny bit of spice, but there’s this flavor I just can’t place. It may be yeast, but it may be kind of fruity.
Palate: Light bodied, slightly watery. Short, malty finish.
Overall: Pretty decent brew. Nothing makes it particularly memorable, or remarkable, but it’s in no way a bad beer.

Bottle to shaker. Poured a gold color. Smell is wheat, buiscuity, malt. Taste is light and simply. Ok beer, too simple though. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - NOV 27, 2012
On tap. Yellow with a lacing white head. Scent is caramel and wheat. Taste is same with a hint of spice. gramity (1638) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a thin and lacy white head. Citrus and floral nose, light body, medium carbonation. Lightly sweet toffee taste with a dry finish. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for a 12oz of this one. Cheers, Dave! Pours a somewhat hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Nose is sweetness- I get grain, and I am thinking corn, too. There is also some slight fruitiness. Flavor is similar- sweetness to the point that makes me think about corn, slight banana, and slight grain. A bit syrupy in the palate with some mild bitterness into the finish. wasabi1200 (15) - Montana, USA - FEB 8, 2012
One of my favorite beers. I poured one this evening after a workout and it’s going down smooth. I adore the aroma of this beer - so rich. Initially, to me, it tastes slightly bitter but follows with honey and caramel. This would be one of my favorite aftertastes in the wide world of brew.
It’s a cold winter evening in Montana and I’m settling in.
