22oz bottle-shared by hbmason-pours an off white head and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is lemon, wheat/grain, soap. Taste is lemon, wheat/grain, spice-ginger. Soft carbonation. A tad thin, especially given oats were used. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #2800... Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Smells and tastes very perfumey, like dishwashing liquid... lemongrass, I guess. Good balance... a touch on the sweet side, but just barely. Light to medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. A strange brew, but not unpleasant. Thanks, Argo0, for sharing the bomber! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Golden pour. White head. Crazy aroma of ginger, lemongrass, limes and hops. Flavor is heavier on the lemongrass and ginger than hops. Damn this was a fun beer to drink for sure. sebletitje (10095) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2009

Pours cloudy golden, white head.
Aroma of lemongrass, hops with a fresh bitter hops nose.
Flavor, same as aroma, light lemongrass, thin bitter mouthfeel with hints of citrus, palate keeps some hints of spices / ginger. Tasty.

On draft from the source. Hazy gold color with light head retention. Nose is spicy wheat and lemongrass. This is a light bodied beer with notes of lime, ginger, yeast and a light spice finish. Simple yet refreshing. Spice and hops make this a thirst quencher, decent. ClarkVV (6759) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2007

Didn’t expect to like this one much, as I usually don’t like beers with multiple spice additions at lower gravities, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s not that the spices aren’t prominent; they are, but the flavor they create really matches the sticky, honeyish malts and they sink in to the pillowy, chewy body and then are dispersed about the palate by the ample carbonation. Quite homogenized, as well, not being starkly citric, spicy or herbal, but rather zesty and refreshing, with a moderate sweetness and a strong note of bubblegum that was surprising.
Aroma dosent seem to be too strong or complex, allowing mostly ginger with a shade of lime, and very little malt depth.
But the flavor is clean, the body soft, yet attenuated enough for its gravity and lacking of any flaws.
Hazy blonde with some stronger copper tints and a medium-sized white head that laces minimally.
I had this during my honeymoon. Tap at the brewery. Lemongrass everywhere, in the flavor and aroma. Crisp and refreshing, with some light sweetness.
