3.24/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale gold with thin, fizzy, somewhat sticky, white head. Head retentiion is moderate and gentle carbonation can be seen within. Decent lacing as well.

Smell: Lager yeast, sawdust, and some honey. Sawdust is definitely there, and not pleasant. EDIT: Sawdust smell fades after a while.

Taste: Honey, lager yeast, spices, and possibly some banana and/or vanilla. Piney hops come in for the finish, and aftetaste is crisp and mildly bitter (also a bit sour from yeast).

Mouthfeel: Light body with copious amount of carbonation. Feel is mildly creamy and quite spicy.

Drinkability: Seems to mellow out (in terms of carbonation/spiciness) as you drink more of it. Not a very special ale, but I may buy it again just to support the local brewery.

A-Bright,clear golden straw yellow with a medium white head that reduced to a thin film leaving spotty lacing.

S-Light earthy hops and a corny background...not very aromatic.

T-Not bad but somewhat disappointing. I was thinking that this would be a bit more hop forward due to the name....wasnt expecting a brew that is so dull. Nothing like some of the other reviews...must be MUCH better on tap and at the brewery...must not translate well when the volume is bumped up.

M-Medium-light body with a pleasant zip from the lively carbonation. Crisp and refreshing...a nice summer BBQ brew.

D-Not what I had hoped for but overall not bad...this is more like a craft brewers rendition of a macro-lager. Certainly drinkable but nothing earth shattering!

Picked up a case of 22s at my distributer. The beer inside the bottles in no way resembles the other reviews I've seen, maybe a contract brewer screwed up. Beer is a crystal clear straw color with no head and light carbonation. Tastes and smells like a gennesee.

If I had payed more than $16 for the case I would be pretty pissed. As it is I'm just disappointed.

Northeast style, with a Fresno atttude.

Pours an opaque golden orange. There was some head after the initial pour, but it quickly vanished into nothingness.

Hints of vanilla merging with an orange sweetness dominate the scent.

Tastes of orange cream, with a mellow hop bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking.Minimal carbonation. Add a sultry summer evening on the porch, and you have a winning combo.
