This medium-golden ale comes with a hint of lime along with its grassy aroma. It has a well-rounded taste with all the elements in good balance, including its medium texture. A good pale ale, drinkable without effort – thanks to Brian Bearden for the gift bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from brentfeesh. Thanks Brent! Appearance is a translucent copper with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is very hoppy. Taste is not quite as hoppy as the aroma but still has a nice refreshing flavor. Finish is hops and a bit of bread. All in all this is a great pickup if you have the opportunity.

Bottle. At a bar in Huntsville, Alabama. Dark gold, hoppy and a little unbalanced. Best thing that I’ve found in this bar though. Worth a quaff.

12 oz bottle. Light gold slightly hazy. Nose is very sharp with a light hop profile. Taste has a very light hoppy flavor, a bit metallic and sharp. Some malt notes. Dry and very bitter end. Medium/light body. OK but just one is fine with me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Kirkpjr for this one. I poured the bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass and it produced a finger worth of white head that trailed of to a nice lace the body of the brew was a clear straw yellow in color
Aromas of citrus and floral hops are very strong in this one. The flavor has some thing going on I just cant pin point out it is very bitter and lemony but there is something else there that is very unique. It almost comes off as an IPA more than a Pale. There is not to much in the way of malts in this one.
Medium bodied with good carbonation and a dry finish.
It sure was a interesting brew to drink. I could have had more if it was available and the drinkability was good
