Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a hazy light to medium golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, citrus and grassy hops; a hint of caramel. Flavor follows, with biscuit malt, light citrus, mostly grassy hops, finishes with biscuit, grapefruit rind and bit of hay. Medium bodied. Nice robust flavor for a light beer and quite a nice lunchtime ale. Hits all the flavor notes I want for a pale ale. Good job.

A 12 oz. can with no visible date, but it being a summer seasonal that I recently received from a respected member, I trust it's fresh. Let's pour it in a 13oz. tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a lively huge two fingers of creamy white foam.

Smell- Cloves, pepper, some banana and yeast funk.

Taste- Bready malt, lemon zest, cloves, a hint of floral and some pepper.

Feel- Light but lively on the tongue with a very dry slightly bitter finish.

Overall- A light but flavorful low abv. beer that is appropriately named. A pleasant kiss of hops with a hint of spiciness and some sweet malt in back to balance it out. I could throw a six in my backpack and enjoy these by the stream or on a mountaintop!

Golden brew with plenty of foam in the Troubadour tulip. Very light and pleasantly fizzy. Some pine in the aroma. Lemony taste with a bitter finish. Clean and clear. Resiny aftertaste.

This makes a thirst-quenching gulp, but I wouldn't rate it as a particularly good example of what can be done in the near 4 percent realm. From the 12 oz can purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham.

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy white foam. Not too bad.

Smell: light malt aroma with refreshing citrusy hops. A solid shot at a session ale.

Taste: citrusy, herbal hops dominate the flavor. There's a little sweet malt underneath, but the balance here is definitely in favor of the hops. Bitterness is quite low, compared to hop character. it's not bad at all.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation. It's not creamy, but it is rocky and refreshing.

Overall: a totally solid session beer. This would be great for tailgating.

This is exactly what I've been looking for to take climbing in the summer... light & freshing without compromising balance & taste!

Thanks Two Beers!

12oz can purchased at Trader Joe’s in Spokane, WA, for $1.34 (from their singles shelf). No date on the can.

Poured a clear shade of amber-gold, with a good-sized, creamy white head that took it’s time dropping and left lots of foam and lace on the sides of a Sam Adams nonic pintglass. Lots of tiny bubbles and a lot of sediment.

Herbal, grassy and lemony in the aroma.

The taste is like the aroma. It’s “light” tasting, with a grassy, herbal hop flavor, with a little bit of lemon-like fruitiness in the background. Refreshing but kinda dull.

Light bodied, with a slightly watery mouthfeel.

Decent, but not terribly interesting. No date to prove it, but I think it was sitting around for a bit. Maybe a fresh one would be more interesting, but I think this is another beer whose brewers mistook Session Ale for Bland Ale.
