4.3/5 rDev +19.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 03/18/09.
Pours a bright clear golden color with a finger of bubbly white head. The head dropped quickly to a thin layer, decent retention. Aroma has green apple, subtle malt, and floral hop.
Taste starts with sweet honey and bready malt, which is quickly accompanied by a slightly sweet fruitiness. That is followed by floral hops and a very subtle grassy hop flavor. Feel is light-medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Very crisp, clean and dry finish. Very mild bitterness. Drinkability is very good - quite sessionable.
This would be great to have on a hot summer day. Very refreshing.

3.13/5 rDev -12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
This one pours a pure and filtered gold with a thin short lived white head that has no lacing of note.
The nose is is sweet with peppery spicy, some citrus and moderate hops. There are mild notes of floral and fruit as well
The flavor is dry malt with some biter-sweet hops that has a sweet finish. a light refreshing beer that is good but not great and has an acceptable bitter finish.
The mouthfeel is a bit watery but acceptable.
Overall a drinkable beer but nothing special.
