Poured into becker pint glass; clear yellow-orange with a thin white fizzy head that sticks as a disc of foam with some small lacing. Smells of pale malt with some light crisp grassy hops, very appetizing and clean. Taste is delicious; clean bready malt with a perfect crisp slight hop finish. Tasty beer, and sessionable as hell at 4%.

The reviews for WYLD - an organic beer - are all over the map. I am the I LIKE IT camp.

A: Poured from orange can into a wine glass, an extra pale yellow-amber with a fast dissapating white head, lots of lacing, lots of carbonation. Looks good.

S: Very unusual, buttered bread with grapefruit marmelade. For me this works. Pleasant and plenty of interesting, appetizing aroma. A little hop stink and soapiness as it warms.

T: Again, original - this is NOT DALES PALE (my fave beer), much milder, low alcohol, fruitier, less pine and bitterness, more doughy bread. A creamy, citrus, bright, light flavor. A bit of background malt, bread, butter.

F: Well carbonated, refreshing. Makes me hungry. Good summer beer, comes in cans, organic, sustainable, this is a recommended first of the summer day, right after sweating, kind of beer. Sessionable, low alcohol. A winner, glad I got the 12 pack. Will share with friends, will but again.

Excellent medium-gold colored body with a thick, blocky white head; sticky lacing. Foral and pine scents; musk melon. Warm malt flavors; fruity esters; soothing hop bitterness; light, warm bread. Medium bodied; smooth; semi-dry finish.

A smooth and easy drinking beer with excellent balance of flavors and subtle taste complexities. One of the best tasting, low alcohol content beers I have had in a long time. An excellent session beer contender if you're looking for a tasty yet mild beer in that category.

A. It is a completely opaque caramel color, with a big foamy head and lots of lacing. Some bubbles can be seen.

S. There's a very, very mild yeast scent.

T/M. There's an apple taste there. It's an extremely carbonated beer. There's a bit of a pear undertone. A mild-ish finish.

O. I'm not sure where they were going with this beer. It's just tangy, but there's not much of a flavor or an idea there. It's not horrible, but this is definitely a beer to pass on.

Pours very pale orange with a one-finger foam head. No lace nor retention beyond a skim.

Light malt and grapefruit/hop notes are primary.

The hop profile sells this one. Big juicy grapefruit rind here, with a touch of fruit overall. Malt is a bit bread, transitions to a cracker note as it dries out. Rind and bitterness come in to finish. Nice drinkable hoppy ale.

Medium bodied, maybe medium light. Decent carbonation.

A nice hoppy brew that is a bit out of balance on purpose. The lighter malt makes this easy to drink without foregoing all elements of flavor. A nice little APA -- I'm surprised and will have this again.

Pours a light orange amber with a slight haze and some bubbles coming up from the bottom. Very scant head of white foam that fell quickly to a thin film and ring. Some soapy wet lace. Nose is very light. Gentle citrus and noble hops. Floral and herbal. Some cracker and biscuit on the nose. Soft hint of melon. Drinks really well. It's an earthy cracker malt that starts you off and travels the palate quickly. The citrus, not tart and not really sweet either, make the drink mouthwatering and thirst quenching. It drinks quickly and very light with a watery mouthfeel and some spritzy carbonation. Settles in back with a slight bitter and herbal.

This was a nice very low abv pale ale that gives the all day ipa a run for it's money. This one is the winner with certified organic ingredients and a light refreshing taste that doesn't taste watered down. It has a mere 120 calories per 12 oz serving and that makes it very attractive. The noble hop character is not loud with intense fruit flavors but it is strong in it's own way and earthy. If it's a touch off balance it towards the malty side and has plenty of cracker on the back palate. Drinks very easily and great for a hot day.
