Concealer (937) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Pours a golden orange with a foamy caramel white head. Smells of sweet citrus, pine, and some malt and mild spice. Flavor is sweet citrus and malt with some bitter hops and biscuit malt notes. Solid but nothing exceptional.

This one was the first one from Alaska Brewing that I tried and it was really good. Easy to drink from start to Finnish smooth not bitter. Would recommend.

maltman53 (432) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle pours amber with persistent white head. Citrusy aroma, followed by a light pale malt and not much bitterness. Overall, the structure is too smoothly mono-themed for me.

Bottle from jeanu. Pours copper with white head. Hoppy, grassy aroma. Taste is hoppy, slight malt bitterness. Good beer.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a bright floral and citrus with supporting tones of light bread which eventually settles on a caramel aroma near the middle of the glass. The beer is clear and oily with an amber hue and a white head that has a light, filmy retention and only a light lace. The taste is a medium / medium high sweet and medium bitter. It’s smooth with a light zip of a carbonation, and a medium body with flavors of bread, caramel, and oranges that finishes crisp with spice and sweet citrus. The finish is a bit waxy with a citrus rind character that mellows quickly and leaves an aftertaste of mild toast and citrus.

BOSSbrewer (2685) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber with a thick, rocky, foamy white head. Aroma is floral with some hints of citrus. Really nice aroma. Flavor is slightly hoppy in bitterness with a nice malt backbone. Smooth. Slightly sweet. Overall, a very drinkable beer. Really nice. Better than many of the ratings.

Freeride hey? Isn’t that a gay song by a gay band? So mote it be. When you want a real "free ride" right to the Big House stick with Blatz, and in no time you will be in the joint singing the "Clang Bang went the Big Iron Door" Blues. Overall this beer while not a mouthful of horse piss is also not a 40 ouncer of Blatz. So put that in yer pipe & smoke it.

jsnicholas (362) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle (12oz $1.80) Sort for a orange color with white head. Nice aroma. No real flavors stand out, its a straight forward Pale Ale. Little bitterness. Very drinkable, would drink again, not on the "regular" list.

zach8270 (3832) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2015
(can - 12 oz) Clear gold with a thick white head. Light hop aroma with some mild grassy undertones. Pretty standard but decent hop flavor with a very light bitter backbone and a slightly lingering hop finish.
