Ungstrup (29828) - 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 (11063) - 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 (8551) - 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.

Lowe1983 (1361) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, citrus hops, and slight fruits. Flavor is the same with a decent bitter finish with a nice blend.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 27, 2010
Nice hoppy floral notes with plenty of pine, too. Flavor is very similar but with a nice bite that isnít too harsh. Body is a bit thin but with it being a lighter beer that is expected. Real nice beer that is extremely sessionable.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Enjoyed on tap in an English pint glass. The beer pours a straw-colored to full yellow hue, with a moderately sized and fairly thick white head. Alluring west coast hop aromas greet the nose, and provide a promise of good things to come. Assertive bitterness greets the palate at the approach, followed by a restrained, but noticeable, Anglo malt sweetness, and a fairly bitter, nicely dry, nicely clean finish. Carbonation serves to lift the flavors and aromas, without making this fairly small beer seem insipid. Quite the opposite, it drinks like a brew with perhaps twice the abv. Overall, a wonderful session beer, and the craft movementís truest answer to the mass-market lagers. Excellent.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Draft. Pours golden amber with a white head. Fruity floral hoppy aroma. Well balanced flavor with pale crackery malty notes and floral hops. Tasty, drinkable, and sessionable.

alexsdad06 (5866) - Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Draft @ Jeanro Bistro. Pours a clear golden straw color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is surprisingly hoppy for such a low alcohol beer. Some floral, citrus and earthy hops. The flavor has a nice dose of the same hops (favoring the earthy slightly) with a finish that is toasted biscuity malt and mildly bitter. Medium bodied and more than met my expectations.

joeneugs (3471) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
An absolutely amazing bitter/mild, whatever you want to call it. It was awesome! The potent hop aroma jumps out at first, kind of like an IPA, but more earthy and subtle. The flavor is again earthy and bitter/citrusy and packed with flavor. The body feels bigger than it is, so before you know it youíre at the bottom of the glass. A perfectly sessionable beer for the hophead. I was more impressed with this than any other beer from 21st Amendment. I wish they would can this one.

JoeinDahlem (1333) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2010
Quenching and dry with a big citrus-hop aroma and flavor. A fine bitterness thatís lifted off the tongue by fair carbonation. Reset. Repeat. Tasty and highly drinkable. Excellent stuff.
