MrBunn (2509) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2014
On tap at Eccentric. Clear gold with a thin head. Aromas of floor cleaner and Country Maid Lemonade powder mix. Flavor is flat out powdered lemonade with some resin on the tail end and a little pepper. Interesting but I probably could have done better for rating 2500.

deyholla (7007) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2014
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has rich citrus with a touch of resin and a grain backbone. Flavor has more sweet citrus with a grain backbone and a bit of bitter grapefruit coming through.

tap. Deep golden with small head. Citrus hops with lemon verbena. Very delicous. Lemon flavor really fits well here.

On tap at Bells. This gets a solid whatever. Either you love it or hate it they said. No, it’s just a passable pale. Lemony no doubt. The lemon balm comes through enough to hide much of anything else. But it’s a pale ale so I’m not big on them anyhow. Plus the lemon thing isn’t my cup of tea. Ok beer.

tectactoe (2337) - Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Tap @ Bells: Super cloudy, sunburst orange with a soapy white film & collar. Aroma of moderate grapefruit, floral hops, light herbal lemon tea leaves, & faint soapiness. Light, crisp taste. Mild candied grapefruit, floral hops, lemon tea, mild orange peel, cracker malt, verbena. Nice & light, slightly floral finish. Really tasty, drinkable pale.

Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells nice and hoppy with notes of citrus and a mildly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, with more lemon, and a pleasant mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Savor 2014. Lots of lemon in the aroma and taste, medium light bitterness, really enjoyable.

Solid beer. Aromas of earthy lemon and other citrus. Lemon really came through in the taste. Was very fresh and crisp. Loved this beer.

koleminer20 (744) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2014
On draft at the Eccentric Café. The pour is a orange-ish copper. There is no head to be found and the pour is relatively still. The aroma is hoppy with tangerine and a little lemon zest. Then flavor is very similar. There is a light hoppy finish on this. The mouth feel is thin, somewhat adequate with a nice citrusy finish. There is a dry hoppy tone which is nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oily orange pour with small amount of offwhite head, thin film. Average carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, crisp finish. Light on scent, smells like a bit of creaminess with lemony hops. Hard to tell though since it’s so light. Flavor is flower and almost doughy (a better descriptive word is available I am sure), I presume from the flower, resinous and/or citrus hops, crisp lemon flavor on finish. Nice, crisp and light ale that has unique flavor due to verbena.
