Pours gold with a little head. Sweet honey taste, this is a light beer with a smooth finish.

a pint at my local. Was worried this would be a super sweet girl beer but was happy with how subdued it really was. Cloudy yellow color with no head. The smell was not so much honey as grassy and a pollen smell, like walking through a field. The taste was a light malt. A little plain but might enjoy it more once it gets warmer outdoors.

Exceptionally thin, I think, the thinnest beer I’ve ever had from an American microbrewery. Pours a watery pinkish amber. Flat: almost no head. Overall though, pleasing. Fairly aromatic, with tones of apricot, fairly hoppy, a bit grassy. The honey barely comes through at all: it’s not sweet, and there are no more floral qualities than an average beer of this hoppiness. Moderate bitterness, little sourness, dry finish: good flavor overall. I still can’t get over the lack of body of this beer, it’s so watery to me, I can’t quite make sense of it. I love the flavor though. I can see this really hitting the spot on a hot summer day, or if you’re rather full from a big meal, and you want a light beer but want something with a lot of flavor. But I think this beer would be a lot better with richer carbonation and just a little bit more body.

Pours golden yellow with decent lacing. Aroma is of straw. Taste is mellow malt at the start finished with a slightly peppery bite and ending with a well-balanced mixture of malt & hops.

Draft at pony bar with streets, Andrew, and Brendan. Pours a golden amber body. Aroma is light sweetness. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with standard golden ale notes and some sweet honey.

Long Trail Pollenator is a crystal clear golden ale with a thick, dense, white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a fruity, grassy aroma with a touch of funk. It’s medium bodied, soft and a little slick. The finish is a little chalky. It’s lightly flavored and very well balanced. A light, green bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. There’s a little bit of lemon, perhaps. It’s very easy drinking.

This beer was pretty bland and tasted like sugar water. The only thing that it did well was get me excited to have a hoppy beer to wash the taste out.

Rating number 57! Yay!!! Draft at Paradiso Georgetown. Bright clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of white pepper. taste is bitter and straightforward.

Bottle/12oz - Catching up on some old ratings from notes for earlier this winter. Pours a golden yellow in color with a medium bright white head. Aroma is of nutty wheat, some bready yeasts and honey. Flavor is malty with grassy hops and some of the honey. Finish is medium bitter and lingers a bit. Easy drinking...

RGDave (115) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap, Old Mill Tavern, Chester NJ. Clean lines. Beer pours yellow-golden with a lively head, and a nutty wheat aroma. Attack is smooth, body is relatively thin, but with a nice bitter aftertaste - easy-drinking spring offering. This went well with tavern fare.
