Had this beer on-tap in a pint pot at the alehouse in Mukilteo.

Appearance: pale orange hue with a finger of creamy white foam. There's just a touch of haze to the body.

Smell: mild malt with a touch of citrusy hops. Not bad, but it's a bit lacking in intensity.

Taste: nice pale malt with the tiniest touch of raw grain flavor. Hops are mildly citrusy and bitterness is moderate and balanced. Strangely, I get a hint of green olive at the beginning of the flavor. Weird, but tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation. Not too bad.

Overall: this is an interesting-tasting golden ale, and I find it quite quaffable.

On tap at Jake' Bistro and bar in Steilacoom, WA. Served in a pint glass.

A pale gold color and clear. No head was served on the beer, and no lace was left behind

Smell is a grain aroma, with a floral perfume scent.

Taste is a dry vinegar flavor. It tastes (and smells) a little like a lager.

Mouthfeel is lite and dry. Minimal carbonation.

A very drinkable beer, but not real remarkable in any way. Not a great thirst quencher.

Aroma is pretty grainy, two-row and crystal, with a bit of hop aroma mixed in. Clean with no fermentation aromas.

Nice golden color with a solid pure white and lasting head. Head leaves a serious amount of lace on the glass. Really a great looking pint of beer. It screams, "Drink me now!"

First flavor is grain. A lot like cheerios, a little sweet, and a little nutty but mostly cereal. Light hop bitterness which is appropriate for a light blond ale. There is also some fruity esters particularly in the aftertaste. A little tiny bit of grassy hop flavor. Nice refreshing and easy drinking flavor.

Body is on the low end of medium but I wouldn't call it light. Very nice delicate carbonation level.

A very nice easy drikning, or chugging to quench your thirst summer beer. Not something I go for very often but a nice job.
