3.31/5 rDev -2.4%
Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is biscuity, malty. Taste is mild, some malts and grains, refreshing but a touch bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent warm weather beer, but just seems a little bit lacking.

12 oz. can poured into a DC Brau can glass. (the date on the bottom is: 4/10/14)
A: Hazy/cloudy/dirty straw color with no head at all or lacing.
S: Zesty blonde, that is quite mild and bland.
T: Starts with an interesting spice/herbal note but devolves into a watery mess. It is ok, but the body kills it.
M: Watery with a very even carbonation that is slightly rough.
O: This might just not be my style. It is pretty fresh, but just doesn't stand up.

Poured into a nonic pint...
A. Cloudy, straw gold. Finger or so of off-white head that bottoms out to a thin ring a little too quickly. Lacing is similarly spotty.
S. Biscuit, hints of citrus, lots of grass and graininess.
T. Lemon zest, subtle orange rind, then a big dose of herbal bitterness with a crisp, dry finish.
M. Light, refreshing, and crisp. Very dry overall with a lot of garb and an rather grainy feel with hints of fruit. Pretty good use of bittering hops.
O. This hits the right notes for an American Golden ale. It's got clean lines and a well-structured palate. Not much in the way of complexity, but the style doesn't really call for that. Carb is up a little higher than I'd normally like and it's got a slightly "grainy" feel, but this is a very solid example of a style that is easily devolved into "pedestrian." When it's hot outside and you seek something clean, approachable, and refreshing, you can certainly do worse than "The Tradition" from DC Brau.

From 04/25/14 notes. Had a few cans of this at 201 Bar in DC. Poured into a pint glass.
a - Pours a clear golden color with one to two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of grains, floral notes, fruity malts, biscuit malts, spice, cloves, and bready malts.
t - Tastes of floral notes, grains, earthy notes, biscuit, dough, bready malts, light fruits and must.
m - Light to medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink.
o - Overall a nice beer that is very easy to drink. Light floral notes and fruit throughout, very light on flavor but crisp and refreshing. Would have it again.

Pours a clear medium-light gold with a fizzy white head. The head has great retention and leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is mild, with some notes of green fruits, bread, and grass. The taste leans more toward the bread-y side of the house, but there's a nice grassy hops finish. The weight is just right, not too heavy but not watery, either. This is a solid beer. It's not going to blow the doors off, but for sitting around watching soccer, this does just fine.
