COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal Release Series. Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. Its a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

riversideAK (6252) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2011
Nose is floral, lightly citrusy with notes of biscuit and toasted malts. Pours golden, decently lasting head and lace. The flavor is dry and biscuity, toasty, with mostly floral notes and light citrus. Dry and light, easy to drink. Decent, but not that interesting to me.

Draft at RnH-West. Clear gold-orange with an almost coating lace. Light aroma of some citrus, pale malts, and some grass. Flavor is similar. Light sweet, light bitter. Soft mouthfeel, fairly dry. Pretty solid.

jgb9348 (5984) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Crisp blonde coloured body with a soapy, large, dense tan head that leaves an ugly lace. Aroma of light hops, light sugars, light malt, a touch of flowers, some jasmine and a minor amount of yeast. Light-bodied; Assertive fresh hops up front that dont have any depth or body, a little sweetness behind and a very mild malty finish - very bland and unsupported. Aftertaste bland and clean with some floral notes, a tiny amount of hops and a little fresh fruit flavour. Overall, a pretty weak and mild beer - good for the size, but bad for the taste and quality of the beer. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at BevMo in Walnut Creek, California on 19-March-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 22-March-2011.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2011 Had again and while still good, this is really pretty dry, almost a bit too much. First rating 4.5 Other than a fairly indistinct aroma this beer is awesome. Great hop flavor throughout with a nice dry hop finish. A good malt flavor as well but this is good enough that they should take it off of seasonal and make it a regular.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle: Orange color with a white head. The nose is hoppy and fresh, lots of citrus pine notes and a light medicinal or lotiony malt note. The flavor is clean with more bitter hops and dry hops, but that lotiony thing isnt going away and it adds a twang at the end of the finish. Good, but doesnt build on you.
