1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 Had this at the Sacramento Brewer’s Showcase late last month. Tasted fairly acidic, one-dimensional, not very palatable. Hazy, sweet, just overall bland. I’ll pass from here on out. Reminded me of an Eye of the Hawk knock-off of some sort. Perhaps that is what they were going for, hence the name and all. Fail.
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland. Bottled 7/26/14. Aroma is mostly honey and graham cracker. Moderate sweetness. Not much else happening in the nose. No hops detected. Transparent golden body with a medium, fairly quickly dissipating white head present. So this starts out with a bit of a husky, tannin like flavoring. Lots of grainy, cereal, and light toastiness in the middle. Finishes with a little ethanol and a mild bitterness that is due in part to the ethanol. This is an absolute malt bomb that’s totally once dimensional and quite bland. Crafty_Bastard (7) - Roseville, California, USA - FEB 12, 2014 does not count
A light, refreshing beer, but lacking complexity, body, and flavor. It drinks like a good light beer, and is great for an afternoon refresher. Mild hop flavor, clean palate, short finish. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Off the tap at the brewery. One finger of head on a cloudy straw colored body. The aroma was all grain and lemon, which was nice. The taste was balanced and rounded mixture of lemon and a healthy dose of malt. The texture was softer with moderate carbonation. A BIG and drinkable ale.

This is a pretty GREAT beer from a local small brewery. One of the usual kegs we get for parties. Very smooth for how strong it is. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 On tap at Beach Hut Deli in West Sacramento. Not much aroma maybe some light fruit, flavor is light and almost lagerish. Very light fruityness. Poured a golden Amber color. Thin but prevalent head. Palate is kind of light and fizzy. Rerate- had this again, much fruitier this time, kinda like passion fruit very good! I think I was a bit hung over last time ;)

On tap at the brewpub. Pours light amber with a modeset off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a carbonated hoppy finish. Lots of ingredient, lots of flavor. BlackEyePA (573) - USA - FEB 25, 2012
Poured at Sac brewers showcase. Decent beer. I dont remember too much about it but I remember it being ok. Overall not my fav but a good sessionable beer.
