Pours a hazy amber/gold with a thin white head. Smells of sweet sugar, some grassy hints, spicy. Tastes dry and vegetal with some dry hints on the finish. I’m not sure what this is trying to be. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle. Pour is light golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of hay, crisp malt, and stale hops. Flavor is very similar and earthy with stale hops and a crisp, light and dry body. A fairly clean brew, but could use a few tweaks. Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Bottle pours clear light yellow with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma faint and yeasty. Taste a bit watery and mediciney with a tingly slightly sour finish. Palate a bit sour and fizzy.
This beer is pretty popular around here. I’m guessing you could put down a lot of these pretty fast since there isn’t much to it, and it is a change from the more common beers but not unpleasant. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Pours clear yellow with a smallish white head. The aroma is dry grains with hay and just a hint of hops. The flavor is very seltzery with an off putting artificial sweetness that really kills it for me. The aroma was a little promising, but ultimately a disappointment. deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with minimal white head. Visible carbonation rising through the beer. Aroma is weak with notes of wet hay. Flavor is weak as well with a slight sweet fruit notes and overly sweet grains.

Dark, clear pale yellow, white quick foam. Aroma is a strange fruity, sweet malt. Taste is odd spicy, estery, lightly sweet, heavy and syrupy. EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Tasted at Beer Dabbler event in St. Paul. Flavor was better than expect. Nice and bright, better than other simple golden ales I have tasted. patrick767 (4095) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2009
bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a fizzy, quickly diminishing white head. The aroma is of grainy malt with some fruity ester notes. It has a very sweet malt flavor with bubbly carbonation and a light, watery body. There’s no discernible hops. Like probably everyone else who’s rated this beer, I have no idea why it’s called a farmhouse ale, but no matter what style it really is, it’s not very good.

Pours a pale golden, slightly hazy with a small head after an aggressive pour, the head races to go away and what sticks around floats atop the beer is a spotty fashion. The aroma has some bready notes with a very mild vegetal thing. The flavor is dry and mildly bready with some very muted fruitiness and is altogether boring. fidelis83 (2496) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Pours slightly hazy straw gold with a 1 finger, creamy white head that fades to a ring pretty quickly. Aroma is wet hay, dried grass, light fermentation, light floral/planty hops. Flavor is sweet grass, hay, thistle, light cereal grain, baby corn, a little apple peel and a nondistinct fruity note. Finishes fairly clean with light apple, a hint of bitterness and some light earthy mineral notes. Palate is light bodied, dry and crisp, with a medium carbonation level. Pretty good for the style, though it is pretty weak and somewhat basic, it doesn’t have the odd, greasy palate that alot of Golden Ales seem to have.
