Had this one bottled thanks to Slothgar! Very nice floral and citrusy notes, lightly malty but not overpowering in any one area, very smooth and mild finish. I liked it. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Reviewed at Doe in Heat.
Pours an extremely light gold with a short lived white head. Tiny bubbles are going crazy in the glass.
Has a sugary malt scent, not much by the way of hops.
Taste is list ang sugary with a hit of lactose. It is very carbonated.
It’s hard to find words for this brew, it is ok but nothing exciting really.
Serving type: bottle

12 ounce bottle from Metcalf’s (Hilldale) in Madison, WI, served cold in a pint glass. Very, very pale gold, light bubbling and a light cloud of yeast in the body, large fluffy white head lasts a good while but does diminish to a thin ring....some nice pale malts in the nose but also unfortunately a little soapy touch which however does mostly fade in a few minutes; also a hint of wood smoke...lightly to moderately sweet body, it’s all malt without a trace of bitterness, that smoky tinge in the nose results in a very faint toastiness at the finish...body is extremely full and juicy, but not at all sticky or hard to drink, with good natural carbonation and a nice light yeasty-bready quality. If the nose were only a little fresher this could be spectacular; as is, merely a very much above-average example of the style. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2008
On draught at the brewery tap room in Plover, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden light blonde brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a film top. Aroma of golden grain malts, fruity pear and apple character, with some noble hops. Taste is light bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of golden grain malt, noble/grassy hops with a touch of apple. Finish has a semi-dry pear fruit aftertaste with some mild bitterness. Neat packaging idea by placing one bottle of Buck in Rut with five Doe in Heat bottles. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to nuplastikk: pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some earthy noble hops. Starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with mild pale malty sweetness well-balanced with a crisp herbal hoppy bitterness before a drier finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

Seen this one and reminded me of my hunting back in the day. Decent lemon zest aroma. Hazy yellow bdy with decent head. Flavor was better than aroma some sour lemon zest and somewhat soapy. Easy drinkable brew while playing cards on NYE 09
