COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bonafide Legit is a light bodied, honey colored Pale Ale. It is brewed entirely with Michigan grown and malted barley, and Summit hops. The excellent aroma is floral and has fruity characteristics. Earthy pine and notable herbal accents coats the entire mouth, which is followed by a big resiny bitterness that lingers into the dry finish.

Bottle thanks to Deyholla! Deep gold pour with a creamy white head. Nose is bright and pretty fruity. Nectarine and peach. Gentle citrus. Some cut grass. Balanced flavor. A bit of cake batter and sweet grain. Light citrus zest and white pepper bitterness. Zingy and quite drinkable. Suprisingly vibrant considering that I accidentally aged it in the rot box. Very good.

Onslow (1522) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Hazy yellow brew, white head that settles to small scrum but leaves nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, tart fruit, a little earth and ery little spice. Taste is rich and nimble, starts hop forward with a pleasant fruity resin. Emergin sweetness and light malt towards the middle of the swallow, with blooming hops and then ending with a very dry hops flourish, citrus, floral, earth and ultimately herbal and resin / pine. Really excellent.
