Super fresh sampler pack these babies are best by 3/2012...this one pours a brilliant bright clear golden hue with a full thicket of egg shell white head. Frothing head dwindles down leaving layers of intricate lacing. Layers of cereal grains, light fruit notes, and floral hops come across my nares a very pleasant herbal grassiness as well. A perfect clean drinking gold ale really, nothing else to add other than damn it's refreshing and it's good cold and doesn't hurt to let it warm up. This is like the most solid homebrew gone pro brewer beer ever, simple flavorful and nails the style guidelines. A true session ale at 4.5% abv packs a nice amount of flavor into a poundable format, I've never seen this stuff outside of the sampler packs. Lighter bodied ale with ample sturdy carbonation really packs in the flavor and definitely pulls off an enjoyable beer in a style that most beer geeks don't give much attention to.

A- Pours a beautiful gold with a 1/2 inch head that simply does not go away. Drank the entire glass without the head dissipating. Leaves little bubbles but not true lacing. Amazingly clear with tons of bubbles rising throughout.

S- Light earthy and grassy hops and lightly sweet malts.

T- Just like the smell with the hops coming through enough to make this a very enjoyable, if not robust, beer and the caramel sweetness tasting just right. Theres also a light fruitiness here that plays really well with the soft grassy hops and sweet malts, yum.

M- Awesome, lots of carbonation and light body make it extremely drinkable.

D- Tastes good, not too strong and I could have a bunch more but there isn't too much excitement. Easily a sessionable beer if not bold enough to be an every day one.

Mix a sixer, into a pint glass. 3/29

Pours bright golden light bottom to top. Some white foam settles out. Citrus malt nose, sunny. Taste is a light sweet malt, backed by a lemony tart. Smooth and flavorful, modest carbonation. Bright and sunny. Good beer to change seasons.

A: Clear gold with medium white head.

S: Some caramel malts and citrus fruits. fairly clean.

T/M: Nice floral hop bite with a resonating fruity sweetness at the end. Clean finish, nice effervescent bite enhances the slightly watery texture at the end.

D: A nice beer to relax to. Definitely high on the drinkability scale.
