3.13/5 rDev -8.5%
A - Poured with a clear, golden yellow body with a lot of carbonation racing to the top...a two finger, white head formed and slowly feel to a thin cap...patchy lacing was left behind
S - Pale malt is very present with underlying sweet notes from some honey...very grassy as well
T - The flavors are very sweet but it doesn't come in until the middle...first the pale malt starts things off light and flavorless...the sweetness comes in at the middle and has a lot of raw sugar and honey supporting it...a the end there is a grassy hop presence mixed with some citrus rind...the two don't mesh well together
M - Light bodied...crisp, weird bitterness, sweet
O - I wasn't a big fan of this one...if it focused more on the honey flavors and toned the sweetness down I could have managed it...the hops and grassy flavors were a little disappointing

3.33/5 rDev -2.6%
Served on-tap in a plain pint glass at The Iron Frog in Simsbury, Conn.
A: Hazy, golden amber color beneath a thin veil of bubbly carbonation that left little lacing.
S: A slightly sweet and metallic, funky wheat and adjunct tang with a hint of citrus and hay.
T: Decent amount of bright, malty sweetness up front with traces of honey, clove, citrusy, grassy hops and cooked veggie/floral bitterness. This leads into a slightly bittersweet and grainy finish with some lingering, sharp hop resin.
M: Thin-medium bodied pale ale with enough grainy malt to even out the traces of spicy hop bitterness. Still light in the satisfaction department, though.
O: Not a terrible beer but still one that teeters on the edge of a forgettable, pale, spring/summer ale below 5% ABV. Not nearly a pale wheat and not enough hop character to call it an APA. Grainy, spicy and light.
