20110206 12oz can from Wine World. Medium amber color with lofty, lasting, sticky beige head. Aroma is earthy and hoppy with some vegetal notes (celery, parsley), mild florals, mild pineapple. Body is pretty thin even for a lighter session ale (not that almost five percent is particularly light) but a nice change of pace from the typically sweet lighter ambers and APAs that I’d usually turn to for this kind of fix. Lingering leather and earthy bitterness with a kick of spruce and slight citrus acidity. Easily quaffed, and I like the intent even if the beer isn’t particularly inspiring.

lamas (1412) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Can. Mine says 4.4% ABV. A clear copper pour with a nicely sized antique white head. A pungent aroma of grapefruits, pine, orange rinds, and some floral qualities. The smell is surprisingly strong given the relatively low level of alcohol. The palate is fairly thin and crisp. A touch of semi-sweet cereal grainy maltiness upfront in the taste. A decent amount of citrusy hoppiness at the tail end leaving a moderately bitter finish. Another solid sessionable brew from 21st. A big surprise considering the 4.4% ABV.

OTRihtnsgbt (28) - Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2011
UPDATED: APR 2, 2011 Great citrus hop aroma with some nice biscuity malt notes in the background. Fruity on the palate with a nice dry and bitter finish. Incredible session beer, love the 4.4% ABV with all that flavor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a golden amber color with a large foamy white head that faded quickly and produced good lacing. The aroma was faint tart vague fruits. The flavor was dry and bitter with a sour off notes and touches of vague fruits and nut. The finish was long, tangy, tart and citric. A bit thin in body. Disappointing.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft. Pours a golden amber body with an off white head. Herbal body with soft grass and shrub notes. Light citrus, rather hoppy for a bitter. Nice session ale.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 On tap at Rustico a few weeks back. Pours a nice golden apricot that was fairly light. Nice white head and some lacing as it went down. Smell is really nice strong citrus hops coming over just a tiny bit of underlying malt sweetness. Taste is similar and blew me away for a bitter. Incredible how much flavor has been packed into this uber-sessionable beer. Super hop flavor without too much accompanying bitterness. Mouthfeel really hits the spot in this regard, as there’s enough bitterness--and perhaps a bit more--than is needed to counteract the sweetness, and the hop flavors really jump out. This is one exceedingly drinkable brew. Hoppy, sessionable beers are right up among my favorites, and this one is near the top. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-29-2010

Drake (9500) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy pale amber color with a thin creamy head. Good head retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, apples and toasted malts. The taste is earthy hops, nuts, caramel and a floral hop finish. Medium bodied. Very drinkable. Nice beer.

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Draft. A golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of hops and grapefruits as well as light notes of spices. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of hops lending it notes of grapefruits, straw, and spices, leading to a dry and bitter finish where the hay note lingers. The body is light.

Tmoney99 (11362) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very good beer.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Pale amber pour and a thin tight white head. Nice, lightly hoppy nose with orange peel and some grapefruity citrus. The body is surprisingly full-bodied with a nice malt sweetness balanced by assertive cascade-type bitterness. Nicely perfumy with some light floral notes as well. The bitterness seems to fade as you dive through the pint, but it never gets tired. Pretty easy to knock back a few of these bad boys.
