look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A finger and half of head on a clear, straw colored body.
The aroma is grain with metal. Not great.
The taste is average: grain, mild bitterness and mild sweet finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A mild drink overall without any offensive notes... or redeeming qualities.

12 oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a miscellaneous large glass at our rental condo at Turtle Bay, North Shore, Oahu. Came in a variety 12 pack.

Clear golden in colour. Bright white head is 3/8th inch on the pour but quickly recedes to a few thin islands of foam with practically no lacing.

Noble hops are at the front of the aroma with hints of herbs, malts, sweet corn and lemon.

Noble hops blend with caramel and sweet corn at the start then noble and herbal hops dominate the wet finish.

Medium bodied with little carbonation, but has a bit of an oily quality and it's a bit cloying.

Nothing special, but paired with some salty snacks it's ok.

Bottled 7/24/12.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, biscuit, and some fruity notes. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick and a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is a bit strong but drinkable.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Hazy golden color with a half a fingers worth of quickly disappearing head. Minimal amount of lacing.

Smell- Pale malt and grass aroma.

Taste- Slightly sweet malt flavor at the start that is quickly overtaken by a moderate hop bitterness and faint notes of booze.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. It felt a tad syrupy at times with a dry finish.

Overall- Boring and uninspired. It was drinkable but utterly forgettable.

On tap at Hopmonk, Sebastol location. A decent serviceable blond. Slightly yeasty "dirty blonde" flavour which was fine on a 26 degree Fall day. A bit funky as a result, but I was expecting something cleaner and a mild hoppy ale. Significant retained head on light blond body. Carbonation above average.
