On tap at Eccentric Café. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of noble hops, pale malt and a touch of floral hops as well. Taste has mild off-flavors with floral hops, sweet malt and finishes up semi-dry with very mild bitterness.

Yellow/orange pour. Nice head, unfiltered . Nose is slightly sweet with some hopping but all is very balanced and drinkable. I think this one would be a great summer session.

Tmoney99 (11069) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind as a session beer.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 À la pompe au pub: Facile à boire avec une tendance florale très appréciable. Rien de particulier à signaler.

deyholla (6973) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of light tropical fruit and grass with a backing grain note. Flavor begins with tropical fruit but finishes with hay and grass.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Draft pour on tap at the brewpub shared with a friend (Kalamazoo, MI). Pours a rich golden pour, a faint haze, but gentle with a small whitish head atop, dies to small film, laces minimally. Aromas are more fruity than the other version, touches of earth and gentle lemon, touches of orange, grass, florals. A sufficient touch of pale malt, bread, and mellow sweetness. Earthy overall, but a stronger nose than the previous. Initial is lighter bodied offering a lot less bitterness, gentle earth, herbal qualities, bready malts pervade with touches of mellow sweetness, pale malts, dough, and gentle biscuits. Middle is sweet yet thin. Finish is mellow and earthy, a touch of spice, bitterness is quite lacking, earthy gentle lilac, herbal qualities, touch of florals.

brew3crew (166) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Golden body with white wispy head. Smells like fritos. And yes I had this confirmed by others. Don’t know if its for better or worst. Tastes like a light lager. Very crisp and dry. Don’t know if I would go back but would have a full pint

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This one was listed on the chalkboard as a "Session Pale" at 4.6% ABV. The beer is a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Floral hops aroma with some malt behind it. Light body with flavors of mildly bitter floral hops, malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is slightly bitter with a hops aftertaste. Decent all around.

Third in the pale ale series. Better than two. Reasonable aroma... Faint floral hops. Taste is really clean, floral rather than citrus. Palate Is again rather clean. Not a strong ale but a good drinker. I think number one was the winner so far.
