UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 In short: A wicked hoppy-but-not-bitter aromatic low-abv blonde ale. Fantastic thirst beer.
How: Tap at the brewery, then a full growler the day after, then another full growler the day after the day after. I guess I loved that beer.
The look: Cloudy yellow topped by a small white head.
In long: The highly aromatic nose has pale garden glowers, fresh lemongrass, some bananas, grapefruits, more... Tastes is a slice of freshly baked bread, a few slices of smooth not-yet-ripe yellow bananas, freshly cut lemongrass, some dough, citrus fruits, light piney notes and even a bit of a rustic thing going on. Becomes more and more grassy (sun dried yellowed grass) the more I dink the beer with some tart grapefruits. Bitterness level in the low-medium range and there is a light refreshing tartness. Finish is rather dry and grassy. Just as good as Lawsons Three Penny Especiale that was launched a few months before Walden and only a few miles away from Hill Farmstead and Alchemist, and these two are my now my two best low abv pale ales. Summer was good in Vermont for low abv hoppy thirst beer lovers. Another beer Id drink every day, I drink so much beer now that I am prescribed pills to help with my failing kidneys and it says take with plenty of fluids and do not take with alcohol and I have no idea what to do.

On tap at TJs. Hazy yellow brown with brief white froth. Nose is toffee, pine, orange and grapefruit. Medium body with crisp biting carb; super drinkable and refreshing. Taste is lemon lime, a little pine and honey with a lingering bready finish. Great pale.

750 ml bottle from the brewery. Nice pale appearance with a cap of soapy head. Nose is very nice floral hops with clean pale malt. Taste is a vibrant array of hops and malt. Citrus, hay, cracker malt and light grassy hops. Light body with a dry texture. Finish is very clean and crisp. Perfectly balanced beer that I can drink all afternoon and into the evening. Damn Mr. Hill, that magic well water is working yet again! Excellent pale ale.

Dogbrick (12342) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours from a swingtop bottle a bright yellow-gold color with a thin white head that burns away steadily to an outer ring. Sparse rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and bready malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Well-executed low-ABV Pale all around.

This one poured a yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of tropical fruits, some resin and peaches. Flavor was similar, very light grain, big popping tropical hops. Very flavorful for the abv.

djd07 (13162) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Growler thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong pine, resin hop. Thin mouthfeel with nice light bitter hop, and a bit watery and easy to drink, very impressive.

On tap it pours a light golden color with a nice head. Aroma of citrus, hops and lemon zest. The taste has some citrus bite, pine needles and some resin. Full flavor with a refreshing finish.

ALIBALI (1278) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2016
Ein extrem satt hefiges und zutiefst fruchtiges SIPA, mit einer styleungewhnlichen, fast saftig anmutenden Textur. Die Grapefruitbombe. Spitze!!! 0,2/40 DKK vom Hahn in der MIKKELLER BAR Aarhus.
