look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Listed as Ice Nine Golden Ale on the bars chalkboard. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a nice clean, clear, bright golden yellow color with about 1/4 inch of bight white head that had moderate retention and very light lacing.

The aroma was about what you'd expect from a Golden/Blonde ale, good grainy malts and some nice balancing hops. The taste was the story, nothing showed up on the tongue that wasn't apparent in the nose.

The body was full, but just slightly sticky at the finish. Drinkability was very good, this would make for good cookout/camping beer. According to the breweries website, this beer is brewed for an annual street fair and rarely leaves the brewery. Worth trying if you see it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

appearance - generous head, golden in color, transparent

smell - not too much there, maybe some light wheat notes

taste - fairly mild with some hop and wheat notes, has a bit of a skunk to it that's not amazing but it's subtle

mouthfeel - decent carbonation, medium body, light beer, session style

overall - a decent session beer, nothing bad, nothing great
