COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Derek881 (1036) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a pint-type glass to drink. The beer had a pretty cloudy amber color with a small-to-average foamy white head that had short retention, and modest lacing and cling. Its aroma featured notes of sour pine and earthy hops, along with a floral effect, and some caramel malt. The taste was a slightly sour-grainy blend with a mix of hops and caramel malt for balance. It was a somewhat wet beer with lower carbonation and fizz, and was a bit watery without a dominant mouthfeel.

Pours clear Amber from 12 oz with thick white head. Faint malty aroma. Sweet, mild bitterness, no dominant secondary flavors. Light on the palate. Overall average beer. Not very tasty but no off flavors either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really beautiful hazy mahogany/copper orange. Biscuity and toffeey on the nose, follow by some zesty, lemon and grassy hops. Taste that biscuity malt with a good dose of hops that finishes clipped and clean ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
