Beautiful copper color. A weak aroma, very easy drinking beer. A hint of floral at the end, nothing sweet for a spring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (10214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2015
(St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training Game at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, FL) Draft... Pours clear and copper with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is toasty and a touch bready; otherwise, it’s bland and nondescript. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is toasty with a moderate measure of bread-crusty bitterness, but otherwise it’s as mundane and lifeless as the aroma. Finishes with light notes of grapefruit and bread-crusty bitterness.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is an attractive copper-light amber tone with a modest, lingering cream colored head. The aroma is full of sweet caramel malts and a low hop character but a touch of peat moss around the edges. Light to medium body. Sweet roasted malt sweetness in the taste offset quickly by a dry bitter finish. I found it to be drinkable and one I could easily have again.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2015
12 oz. bottle purchased at Beer Store, Nashua. Clear Amber color with very fast diminishing head that didn’t leave much in the shaker glass. Aroma is mild toasted grain a weak grassy hops.

The flavor is light toffee with a very mild level of hops coming from herbal or a grassy note. The body and texture are watery thin. This style is rather boring and bland overall, this brew does nothing to change my opinion of the style. I’m fighting back a yawn.

superspak (3618) - Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear golden copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced citrus hop and bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, toast, biscuit, light caramel, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus hops and bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. All around good balance and robustness of citrus hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
