Served in a shaker pint glass at Sheffield's.

The 2011 Bachelor Party Extravaganza rollicks forth! This offering pours a clear pale gold topped by a half-finger of solid white foam. The nose comprises light grass, sweet flowers, light biscuit, and a squeeze of lemon. Everything comes off as meek and is easily o'erpowered by any bit of food in the background (damn crowded beer garden...). The taste holds notes of light buttery biscuits, light lemon zest, grass, and a sprinkling of minerals. Again, everything's meek, coming off as a light lager masquerading as a blonde ale. The body is fairly light, with a moderate carbonation and a sorta watery feel. Yeah, it's light, kinda thin, and kinda fizzy, but it seems to work here... Overall, a pretty weak brew, though I guess I could see new craft converts gravitating here for something that isn't too o'erwhelming. Beyond that, though, there's plenty better out there.

1/2012:
Trying a single of this again to see if my tastes or the beer has changed at all. I heard they moved production to Minhas, and it says so on the label.

Bright gold, slow ascending carb trails. Ample head of foam, thin collar of lace around the edges. Retention is pretty good, the skim breaks only after the first couple sips.

Biscuity aroma, slightly sweet and a touch grainy like macro lager.

Flavor is similar, mainly doughy biscuits and sweet honey. A light bitterness in the back end that lingers well into the aftertaste. A bigger sip gets some grape esters from the yeast, which remind me slightly of malt liquor, but there's a distinct dry grassy hop character that builds. Easy to drink, light bodied and a little bland. Overall a basic session beer that seems to have gained some slight nuance. Still would choose any of their other beers over this though.

Thanks Aaron for sharing. Review from written notes.

Pours a pale straw gold with a flurry of bubbles that swarm to the surface. Tight cap of white foam, some spotty lace but nothing substantial. Retains a head for a good five minutes though.

Soft grainy aroma, vaguely grassy from the noble hops, pretty nondescript but inoffensive.

Flavor is very light and fleeting like a macro lager, very mild toasted grain with a hint of honey. Body is watery and flaccid. Plain and inoffensive, seems more like something to cook with. No unique characteristics to make it stand out from the rest unfortunately. More of a transition craft beer for a regular macro drinker, very little here to hold the attention of craft drinkers.

A: Pours clear, pale golden yellow with a small, fizzy white head which slowly dissipates.

S: Noble hops very obvious.

T: Kind of skunky, honestly. Almost a plastic flavor at the beginning....

M: Some malt presence, but fairly light bodied.

D: I've been very impressed by the two other beers that they've rolled out so far, but this one is not a favorite. Kind of bland. Stick with lizard and vulture.
