Thanks goes out to Bitterbill for this brew.

16 oz. Bottle/Mini Crowler

Poured into a DFH glass a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden yellow/orange color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, some hops, little bit of citrus (orange, tangerine), kinda grassy. The taste is pretty nice, malty, hoppy, nice little citrus (orange, tangerine), grassy/wheaty, little fruityness, nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew, nice thirst quencher. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Thanks Bill!

not much to this very basic golden ale, my first beer from ten sleep. its not bad at all, its just woefully boring, and it seems well executed, its just not very inspired tasting to me. pale golden, super clear, and without a lot of head from the tap. aroma and flavor have just a little light honey sweetness to them, and a very simple pale two row barley malt base it seems, fermented down to almost dry with an essentially flavorless ale yeast, and not hopped significantly enough to matter. i get the light blonde ale type, the introductory craft beer if you will, and this is pleasant and refreshing and approachable in that context, but it lacks any real come back to it factor. i like the lightly floral complexion it has, and the extremely light body, but it feels a little under carbonated and never quite finishes with the briskness i often look for in the style. its supremely drinkable, i could pound a few pitchers of this no problem, but it doesnt command my attention or careful thought, and ends up being just another blonde ale type. fine and crushable, but little else.

From a 2 day old growler.

It is a bright, and completely transparent deep gold. A cross between a fizzy and soapy bright white head. A little bit of lacing and retention.

Smells ok. Not real enticing though honestly. Sweet, grainy malts with a subtle floral hop.

It tastes much better than I would have guessed. The almost fruit like sweetness is there, and probably the most dominant, but there is also a subtle, but consistent, bitterness from the hops throughout. The malt bill is very distinct. Fresh sweet grains like a Kolsch.

Body is still very light despite being malty. It is fairly crisp, like a Pilsner.

This beer surprised me a bit. I thought it was going to be a lot more like a Coors Banquet. While it does take on a lot of lager qualities, it still has some decent bitterness. It is a nicely balanced beer that is very easy to drink. I could see this pairing well with a lot of food and activities.

I bought a Howler of it at Liquor Shed in Casper.

A bright golden coloured brew that has about an inch of foam sitting atop. Some lacing ensues.

Light aroma of hops with an also light aroma of malt. Lightly bitter overall.

The taste is very nice and smooth. Nice hop profile that adds just a bit of pleasant bitterness to a slightly sweet brew that has just a hint or 2 of grain. This is really good and would make for an excellent every day quaff.

On the low side of medium bodied, the same for the carbonation.

Very very drinkable! A fine brew for my first try from Ten Sleep!
