Crisp golden ale with a delicate hop finish. This is our lightest ale and it is brewed with a bit wheat malt for body and Munich and Aromatic malts for and undertone of honey-like sweetness. Lightly dry-hopped with Cascade hops for that classic American golden ale aroma.

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at drewone's tasting.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is light and refreshing.

Hazy yellow brew with tons of white foam on a pillow-y white bubbles.

Definitely English. dry, bitter, and farmhouse-y. Not a mind blowing aroma. Nothing special, but nothing horrid.

Very bland and dry. Nothing stands out, but I wonder if this brew is significantly past its prime..?? Bitter, dry, biscuit'y ness is almost impossible to get over. Over carbonation is almost seltzer esque.

This brew is not horrible, but it does not excite me either. It's average and deserves to be rethought, perhaps it's the style that I just don't agree with...? Can't recommend.

Insanely smooth, crisp beer. Finds just the right balance of...well...everything. Not bursting with flavor, nor is it the most interesting beer I've ever had, but it's just really enjoyable. I could probably put back an obnoxious amount of this if given the chance (and following morning with nothing scheduled). I cant find anything wrong with it.
