My good buddy Chris brought this back from Wormtown for me (unexpected, this guy is the best!).

The look of the beer as it sits in my pint glass is a clearish golden color with a head that dies a super quick death. Leaves no lacing. The smell is fairly light and soft with light malt scents. The taste is fairly good with a belgian yeastiness that surprised me. A hint of bubblegum on the back end. The mouthfeel is light and leaves a mild after taste.

Overall, the best part of this beer is its name. Then the flavor. I really appreciate this gift growler but I will probably not seek this brew out again.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - A typical clear amber/straw color with barely any head and minimal lacing.

S - Very light citrus along with a nice hoppy aroma along with just a faint hint of yeast.

T - Solid citrus and hops. Really liking this alot more than say, this years Sams Summer. Its creamy, light, and simple.

M - Your typical summer ale with heavy carbonation. Nothing special here.

D - Again, typical summertime ale. Dangerously drinkable. Could swig this back all day long if allowed. Wish I could get this in a 6/12 pack.

Had on tap @ Prezo in Milford, MA.

A: 1 finger fizzy head fades semi quickly over mostly clear golden pale yellow color.

N: Semi yeasty actually, with some light malts, a little lagerish almost. Semi sweet, with a little wheat, a touch of lemon grass and citrus.

T: A nice lager taste with creamy and toasty malts, some wheat, a little light fruit, and a touch of yeast. It adds some citrus and lemon grass again, with some juicy mouth watering flavors, and a crisp clean taste. There is also a touch of light hop bitterness.

M: Lighter body with decent carbonation.

F: Dry finish, with lingering yeasty lager flavors, some wheat and toasty malts, touch of sticky sweetness. A little floral hop bitterness hidden in there as well. It's got a nice finish as well, lighter, crisp and clean, and very refreshing.

Growler picked up at the brewery.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" off-white head over the almost clear golden brew. Pillowy head falls slowly, with fleeting lace that leaves small chunks now and again. Aroma is lightly sweet, with an almost tart undercurrent. Taste is balanced sweet and tart, with a citrus hops close. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. A good summertime brew.

3.35/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Slightly unclear gold color with soarce but constant champagne-like bubble streams. thin head and moderate to no lacing.

S - Smells of wet two-row and lime peels.

T - Light easy and simple. A summer beer for teachers. not too much to think about here. mild malt and lime, it couldn't be simpler.

M - Very wet and refreshing mouthfeel. Soft, creamy and foamy that vanishes in the finish.

D - Anyone could drink this all day if they were a B/M/C drinker but the more adventurous palate will soon crave other flavors.

Ordered a "Blonde Cougar" on tap at Peppercorn's this past Saturday. Served in a standard pint glass. Golden yellow color with a light body. Fluffy, soapy looking head. Smell had a hint of spice to it. Taste was good. Mellow citrus flavor, with a dose of hops. Mouthfeel was appropriate for a blonde ale, smooth and easy to drink. The combination of all these factors come together to form one good beer. This will be a big hit during the warm summer months. I am glad that I was impressed with my first taste of Wormtown, as I will definitely like to try their other brews now. Good job and good luck.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Hazy golden yellow. Very very attractive color. The head is kind of lacking - not too big, not much retention, and little lacing. Buttt...it is a blonde ale afterall.

S - Floral citrus and yeast. Some hops in there as well.

T - Follows the nose but pretty mild tasting overall. It's very very refreshing, however, and it fits its description as a summer ale.

M - A bit light. Definitely not too light or "lacking anything" at all, but a bit light. Carbonated well and well crafted overall.

D - Very very drinkable. I have a growler and it will be perfect for this night. Sessionable, light, refreshing, and pleasant. Glad this place just opened down the street. I'm impressed with what I've tried so far from Wormtown - it's ambitious and my money's on it getting even better in time.
