12oz bottle pours a clear yellow to copper color with a tan film across the top. Spotty lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a thin film.

The aroma is quite muted to the point where hardly some caramel grain sweetness is noticed. As it warms up, there is a faint buttery note. I dont pick up on any yeast, hop or alcohol elements at all.

The taste includes a mild bready grain flavor with a hint of fruity to citris hops. While it is very mild in flavor i am actually surprised to taste something other than the straight caramel grain that was the sole charcteristic of the aroma.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is crisp and easy drinking but really a mild brew even for the style. I would be hard pressed to find any real reason to return to this brew.

Enjoyed while at the brewery. Review from notes.

A: thin head on a clear bright golden with slight copper hue body.

S: breads, gingerbread, light orange citrus and lightly toasted caramel malts.

T: toasted caramel malts with a touch of spicy and herbal hops mostly in the finish.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbontion.

Overall: Drinkable like so many beers from this brewery however just not that imaginative and obviously made for the masses.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed 12 oz bottle out of a pint glass at Stoney River Steak House in Annapolis, MD.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a thin 1-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a non-existent lace.

S: Not a huge nose here – mild grains and hops with some hints of lemon and pine.

T: Slightly bitter flavor with hints of citrus grains and hops.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent golden ale – not my favorite beer from Clipper city – but it went down smooth and was easily drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a pale golden straw, clear, small head dissipates quickly
Grassy hops on the nose, bready malt. Very light yeast.
Very balanced, hops are light but there, and just barely cut through the very light citrusy sweetness leaving a light crisp finish.
Carbonation is a little on the lighter side. A touch more would add to the crispness.
Decent. A nice little session that would taste good on a 95 degree day.
