12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope market. $1.59 HUge out of control head on a gentle pour..when it settles daown its a clear golden ale with a large thick white head. Aroma, grassy,doughy slight grapefruit hop, nice enough. Taste grassy,some semi sweet malt, slight bitterness in the end. Palate is thin well carbonated and good for drinking in quantity. Overall average but the low alc and calories make this a good choice for summer bbq drinking

A - Pale, amber, medium lacing

T - Tastes like a non-alcoholic beer. Some malt. Hops are wanting. Watery.
M - Thin and watery. Medium carbonation.
O - Nearly a drain pour. Like the label and the environmentally-friendly efforts of the brewery, but this is a fail.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a medium straw color with decent clarity. The head is a four finger white color with lowish retention for the ABV. The center of the head retains itself more thoroughly than the edges. Lots of patchy lacing, too.

S: There's the typical grapefruit aroma expected from Cascade hops, along with some lemony esters. As it sits in the glass, the crackery pilsner malt shines through slightly. Not an assertive aroma, but it's likable enough.

T: The taste is very simple, but the few dimensions it features are pulled off well. Initial lemon and grapefruit flavors, before being finished off by lightly sweet maltiness. A very good blonde ale, though hardly extreme or mindblowing.

M: It could be a little less watery in general, but this is so easy to drink. Hell, it's practically a chugger. The light body and dry finish only help the drinkability.

O: Who needs Bud Light when you have this? This isn't designed to be a Zombie Dust wannabe, it's designed to be drank by the six pack, or with a good meal. Very enjoyable as long as you don't expect explosive flavor.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Look: Very pale yellowish orange with a big light and fluffy white head. Appearance reminds me of a saison.

Smell: Very light citrus on the nose. Lemon and orange notes.

Taste: Flavor is almost non existant. Some biscuit like sweetness and an ever so faint citrus taste. Very light but highly carbonated. A small amount of grassiness.

I should have checked the bottled on date before i purchased because i didnt notice until i opened said bottle that this particular beer is about 10 months old already. Not sure how much hoppiness it's lost in that time. That being said i could session this on a warm day easily.
Plus it's organic.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, making it $1.67 for a single 12oz brown boittle. It has a bottled on date of 1/26/12 on it, so this bottle is about 10 months old now.

The beer poured a slightly hazed pale gold color with a half finger of white head on top that dissipated in less than 30 seconds and left only a few small spots of lace. Not that attractive to look at.

Pine, citrus, and tropical fruit smell with subtle bready malt underneath.

This mostly has a citrusy hop flavor with a bit of pine hop bitterness. giving it a 29 IBU rating. What malt there is is on the dry crackery side rather than sweet.

Light body with higher than average carbonation.

It has decent flavor, and with the low 4.0% abv you can have a few of these without feeling much, but they are not anyhing that I would describe as WYLD or exceptional.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a simple pale and biscuit malt scent along with a mild hop nose. It's light with a touch of bready character. The taste is decent. It has a smooth pale and biscuit malt character. It's light and refreshing, yet full flavored and highly drinkable. It goes down easy with a touch of hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a no frills pale ale that's certified organic and quite delicious.

I enjoyed this beer, just enough hops in a pale ale to make me happy. it came inside uinta's mix pack that someone had recomended at the store i purchased it from. this was my favorite beer from the pack and would definatley get it again. nice from hop to it that fades to a pleasent malty finish.

Beer #25 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

Don't know why, but I've held off in trying this one numerous times. I think seeing the rating on it may have jaded me from giving it a shot earlier on.

This is actually fairly good. It is mellow, in comparison to the really out there pale ales that a lot of people are making. A heavy malt base supports a clear hop influence, but not to the tone that you come to expect for the style. I don't really hold this against the obnoxious interpretations of an apa, to be honest. I am letting this stand on its own, and I can say that it is a good pale ale. Not quite as rounded as I would like, but it works. Carbonation is a bit high and biting, but it doesn't really matter.
