Bottled on March 5, 2009 A: Pours a very light yellow-grain color with about two fingers worth of head and plenty of carbonation. The bubbles are nice to watch through the transparent beer--wish I’d poured this one into my Sam Adams perfect pint. Excellent lacing. S: Sweet grains. Some hints of hoppy citrus. T: Much like the smell, the initial taste is sweet grains, with some light fruits in there as well. Ever-so-slightly bitter. M: Very light and crisp. Good amount of carbonation. No alcohol presence. D: Exceedingly drinkable--this will indeed be a great summertime brew.

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Pale clear straw-colored with a light lacy head. Fresh, grassy aroma with some spice. Lightly sweet but dry at the same time, light with a crisp taste. Some hops, some grass and a slight spiciness. Crisp, slightly bitter finish. Very nice light, refreshing beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrusy, crisp. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale gold, appealing and refreshing sight, with a nice clarity that’s almost transparent, well carbonated with a soft delicate foam. The aroma is mild and subtle, but I get instant signs of malt, a little biscuity and buttery, with a slight blueberry fruitiness and a very faint hop spice. It’s nice and soft on the palate with a gentle mouthfeel and plenty of spritzy carbonation. It’s somewhere from light verging on medium bodied. The flavors are very clean throughout, offering the briefest hints of berry-like fruitiness, my taste buds are still learning but I would guess something of a cranberry, raspberry and cassis mix, without being particularly assertive. There’s a mild hop bitterness in the finish, which does leave a slight flowery aftertaste, but the sweet maltiness comes though much more pronounced. A thoroughly enjoyable and refreshing summertime ale!
