This is probably the best beer I’ve ever had that’s this low in alcohol. Pours cloudy yellow with good lacing. Smells like hay and dirty farm hops. A little bit bitter, a little grassy. Very full palate. On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2012
32oz growler, fresh, from a good friend. thank you... pours a semi-hazy, wheat beer like pale yellow brown hue, consistent throughout, and topped with a ore than adequate fluffy frothy white head that eventually reduces down to a milky film.... firm grapefruit and citrus focused nose. a fair bit juicy to boot which enhances the aroma more ... flavors are not absurdly hop dominated, held in check, but still a very integral factor into the entire equation. crisp with lemon citrusy zest and a biscuity malt and pale grain backing. both work well in harmony with each other. quite a bit a flavor packed into such a small brew with 40 ibus overall. lighter bodied, refreshing hoppy goodness without being overdone and perfectly quenching. a touch of bitterness on the backend to provide an additional aspect while offering a touch of dryness to boot...really hoping the small session beer movement continues to see its deserved attention. i would love to have this at my disposal throughout the year, and not only during the summer months. an anytime type of brew. well crafted and executed. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at 2012 Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales. After an onslaught of Saisons the metal band fired up and the hoppy beers came out. This dank-nosed juicy C-hop piece quenched my thirst and desire for hops. Fat, sticky resin nose followed by a dry, light and balanced body with green hoppiness and a nip of minerals. Clean, delectable and forward. Reynolds314 (3462) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Session ale perfection. So light and refreshing with great citrus, grass, and dank hop flavor that doesnt result in much bitterness. Very lightly malty and drinkable as all get up! j12601 (12736) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2012
On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours a hazed glowing gold with a medium sized white head. Crisp musk, light dusty hops. Hoppy up front, musk, soft wheat. Soft and gentle, light musk into hops, dusty. Lovely session beer, could drink this all day. Gently musk and a light hop bitterness on the finish.

On draft pour. Great golden color. Medium to light white head. Nice well balanced light abv pale ale. Great biitterness. Well made. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2012
My beer should be this beer. Light bitterness and a huge hop presence, with some nice vaguely honey-esque malt. Amazing, especially given the ABV. orangesol (987) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Growler shared by Deuane at the very end of Campground Brewdown.
A - Pours hazy pale yellow with a frothy one and a half finger tall white head leaving sticky lace down the entire glass.
S - Smells of pungent grassy hops, dulled tropical fruits, pine resin, touch of sweet pils malt with a light breadiness. The hops work well with the base.
T - Starts off with some bready pils malt quickly giving way to hints of citric zest, resin and a surprisingly low amount of grassy hop bitterness. There is still plenty of hops in it but they are nicely subdued, allowing this one to be incredibly drinkable.
M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Subtle chewiness with plenty of hop bitterness, nearly balanced to perfection.
O - This one tastes like some of the other HF pale ales, even tho it is a blonde ale. The hops and base blonde work very well together, combining with the low ABV to make this one very easy to consume. This is a really awesome beer. czar (9172) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2012
