can: this is awesome.. exactly what I needed and pairs perfectly with what Iím eating. A sessionable pale ale with plenty of bitter notes, but without much of the plenty hop component, but lots of spice. Perfectly balanced, smooth and finish is compeltely clean. Awesome. will probably pick up a 6er of this next time.

12-oz. Pours crystal clear medium amber with plenty of rising bubbles. Nice sudsy off-white head that really sticks around. Big bold fruity nose, lots of mango and pineapple over a big wash of pine. Creamy, soft body, almost watery, lightly carbed. Toast, caramel, pineapple, and pine on the mid-palate, delivered delicately due to the lightish body and subdued carb. Very refreshing and approachable. Brilliant name, brilliant concept, brilliant execution. Great beer.

wow, definite surprise here. excellent beer, like a pale ale almost. pours a light crisp amber orange with a small white head and nice lacing. its a nice and biscuity malt profile, very light, and a light but prominent hop profile. excellent stuff, great drinker. this stuff has been seeloing like hotcakes, and i see why. excellent brew for non beer geeks as well.

Completeley blown away with this beer, not saying itís the greatest but an actual craft producing a session beer with some flavor, sorry full sail. I like the light malts in this with some bitterness, somewhat esb like. Very crisp and easy to drink, maybe itís the can, but this is definateley something to reconsider when pounding some beer at a raider game. Will pick this up again, and good to see 21st make something for the 8+ beers drinker.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Clear amber pour with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of bitter hops and a trace of dark fruit. Flavor is light, but hoppy and just a touch of sweetness. The low ABV is a great idea and they pulled it off very well with this one.

Very nice hoppy pale ale aroma, strongly citrusy, biscuity malt, floral, grassy. Starts with light biscuity malt, finishes crisply with grassy, herbal, citrus hops and a gentle bitter bite. Only thing that brings this down is that it comes across very watery, particularly on the finish. Still, a very likable beer with a nice, clean flavor.

6-pack from Chuckís. I guess this works great as a "session" beer but it just doesnít seem to have all that much taste. Nice citrus aroma and enough hops to give it a bitter kick, but I sense very little of the "malty presence" indicated in the tagline. Meh.

Poured a golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma and flavor was a lot more hoppy than I expected. This one blew my mind. Along with Stone Levitation Ale, this is one of the best session beers out there and can only help fix their reputation of being considered second-rate.

12 oz. can from Full Throttle Bottles. Transparent copper/orange color. The head was fluffy, but it is now thin and wispy. This has a very pungent grapefruit citrus hop flavor. Iím loving the fresh aroma of this beer. It has a strong malt flavor -- much stronger than expected. It has a very subtle grapefruit citrus hop flavor. I canít believe that this has been classified as a bitter. It is carbonated, but the body is very light. The malt flavor(s) donít come through that much. There is a bit of malt sweetness, but itís nothing in comparison to the citrus hop flavor. Overall, Iím fairly impressed with this offering.

Altogether a very drinkable beer. Hoppy but not to the point that it destoys your tastebuds. Good amount of malt but i didnt feel like there was a good cohesion of flavors. I kind of got hops upfront, malt in the middle, watery aftertaste
