Can. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was thick and white with good retention and lacing. Nice caramel, graham, light butter, and floral hop smells. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet without any significant bitterness. Caramel, graham, and floral hop flavors with a hint of pine. Nice.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
clear copper color, small off white head, a touch lacy. airy nose of malt and perhaps a touch of pine. flavor was very mild, perhaps some malt, maybe some hops. i took a couple sips and didn’t see anything here, then i tasted a strange metallic taste that did not fade. perhaps an infected bottle, but this sample was pretty poor. a flossmoor station mugclubber provided the sample at a recent tapping.

Bottled. Poured crystal-clear medium amber with a well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma was on the sweet side with caramel and redder fruits accented by floral and citrus character.. maltage became candied as it warmed. The flavor found sweet caramel at the core with fruits in the form of bitterness around.. some spicy pine and a touch of citrus too.. aiight. Light-medium bodied with decent flow across the palate.. a tad grainy.. spicy, refreshing finish.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark hazy gold with a white head. Grassy hop aroma. Slightly off taste, a little sour too, could be infected.

12oz bottle. pours browish copper with thin white head. Aroma is floral hops, caramel and touch of citrus. Flavor hops, pine, lemon and caramel malts. Body is a little thin but makes for a good session beer. A nice surprise for the singles rack.

Orangish color. Lots of piney hops in the nose. Great hop flavor and bite that lingers on the tongune. Even with all the hops, there is enough malt there to balance it out. Not quite as good as Muskie Capitals APA, but still very good. Hayward brewpubs know how to make an awesome pale ale!
