Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 11/28

Pours bright sunny gold, see through, light foam ring. Grain, hay, earthy nose. Cereal grains. Taste is light, touch of sweetness, with a mild bitter close. Hint of citrus. Easy going, sweet, tasty. Honest beer, great midwest farm beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Sampled at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare.

Clear golden colored ale with a small white colored head.Smells a little of aspirin, other than that this isn't really aromatic.

Tastes of soda cracker malt and medium hop bitterness. Citrus hop taste on the tongue. Fairly standard flavor for a pale ale.

Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall just a "Middle Of The Road Ale." Nothing particularly memorable about it.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date of 01/26/2014 printed on the back label. My bottle is a bit different than the one pictured and is named Two Brothers Prairie Path Golden Ale, named after the Illinois Prairie Path which runs close to my house. My first time trying this beer from these guys, expectations are moderately high.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours a nice hazed golden orange colored body with some bubbles lazily floating topside. One finger of soapy white head. Looks good for what it is.

S - Smell is of wheat, grains, light corn, grass, honey, biscuit, and some faint lemon / lime zest creeping in the background. What's there is nice, but there just isn't enough of it.

T - Taste follows the nose: dry grass, grainy Belgian malt, honeyed biscuit, faint citric lemon zest, and some dirty herbal earthiness from the Saaz and Golding hops used here.

M - Feel is sticky, with light bitterness. Grassy and dry. Light-bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a simple, yet approachable beer, with a moderate 5.10% abv. Easy drinking and all, but just not entirely too interesting. Glad to have tried it, but I probably wouldn't want it again.
