good beer to enjoy on a hot sunny day, very smooth going down, the taste was suprisingly decent.

Pour more of hazy straw color (red or amber to be seen). Aroma and taste were super heavy on malt (and skunkiness). Not sure if I got a bad bottle, but just not very tasty. Not amberish. More like a pils, but not that great for that even.Disappointment.

Pours...not amber. Light straw gold with one finger of head. Nose is super ass-y, lots of biscuit and cloying honey notes. Wayyyyy too much of the biscuit malt in the flavor, like drinking wet grain. Lots of toasted malt flavors and bready notes. Medium body with a soft carbonation and hops like wet hay.

Much cloer to a pilsner in my book. Refreshing on this hot ass day at Eabf. Toasty corn and grain. Grassy hops. Good session

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Really nice amber ale. The beer smells of bready and caramel malt citrus hops in the orange range. The beer is a hazy deep gold to orange with a big dense white head. The beer tastes of bead, caramel and orange hops. There is also some light butter like richness. The body is medium with an incredible smoothness. Very good.

cheap (3943) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Really nice presentation out of the glass. Big head never fades but goes craggy. Reminds me of orval for some. Wow that head looks so scrumtious. Lots of co2 in ther yummy. Taste has a nice bitterness that builds but never over the top. Sizzle really adds to the taste bud sensations. Good overall beery experience.

Bottle. Don’t like this one --- astringent and skunky. Maybe it was an old bottle bought in Florida, but others from brand have been fine.

poured into a pint glass on tap. Pours a medium amber color with a small head. nice aromas of malts and some hops. While on the simple side, it is nice with solid depth. Medium bodied with a decent and smooth feel. A bit lacking on the mid with some flavors of malts and blood oranges. A nice brew. Very drinkable and pretty straight forward.
