3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft (notes from mid 2011). Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had pale malts, grassy, with some mild piney hops. The flavor had bready pale malts, grass, light pine, withmoderate bitterness to the finish. Pretty tasty for a 3.8 beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Jackie O’s. White board: "Golden ale with a nice hop profile."
Pours a dark straw color with a good white head and a bit of lacing as it makes its way down the glass. The nose carries through some nice citrus and pine notes along with just a touch of malt. With the flavor, the malt is there more in the body department, as the flavor is mostly a nice bit of citrus and pine hops. Feel is light and crisp with a slightly-bitter finish. Really tasty and a very enjoyable experience.
Serving type: on-tap

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Okay so my opinion has slightly shifted. I had this classified in my head as a single hop pale ale, but a golden? Hazy orange pour with a lush white head maybe some i dont really remember. Thin body (hey its only 3.8%) Grassy hops, light pine and h20. Decent I guess, but it Needs more hops. Maybe an experiment with a single hop beer, hop bursted? would yield much more pleasant results. Super quaffable

This poured a semi cloudy golden to light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lighter pale malt, some butterscotch and bitter piney hops. Flavor was much the same as the aroma, very light and watery, some buttery notes and medium bitter chinook hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap into a sampler glass. Appearance is a light yellow with white head. Aroma is like that of an IPA. Tastes like an IPA too, but just not as pungently hoppy. Light bodied and super easy to drink. I wish more low ABV beers had this much flavor. Way to go guys!
