Nice malt and hop balance, a taste of carmel and a wonderful cleansing of the tounge, a good sesson beer. I wish I had more.

ARH (433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aromas are mellow caramel and citrus. The pour is slightly hazy, light caramel brown, with a slight effervescence. It’s topped by a soapy orange head which reduces down to a thin, filmy layer with a thin ring and light, random lacing. The taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. The texture is oily thin with a medium / medium light body and a light amount of average buzzy carbonation. Flavors of caramel, nuts, and bitter citrus finish the beer with a light butter and burnt toast aftertaste. It’s very smooth and easy drinking.

The body has a deep orange amber color with a slight haze and is topped off with two fingers of creamy off white foam. This head settles down to a thin cap that makes some nice lacing on the glass. This one is full of big citrus, floral and pine hop notes with just a little sweet malt underneath. Just like the nose its flavor is full of wonderful citrus, grapefruit, pine and topical fruit notes. A light base of bready malt seeks in here and there with a slight caramel sweetness. The hops run from the fount to the finish and bring plenty of hop bitterness that slowly fades off the tongue. The body has a medium feel with soft carbonation.

Sampled at Great Canadian Beer Festival. Grass, lemon zest and grapefruit; sharply dryhopped. Clean, super bitter. A bit thin -- lacks a good malt base to carry the heavy hops.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The brew is served a rather golden amber color with a nice two finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is biggest of a pale malt smell with a good showing of a bready aroma. Along with these smells is a light fruity sweetness as well as a moderate showing of hops with both a pine and floral nature being there. Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat sweeter malt taste with some lightly toasted bready tastes as well as a light fruit sweetness of apricot and orange that were detected from the nose. As the taste advances the sweeter fruit gets replaced by a more caramel like sweetness with some hops coming to the tongue with a grapefruit and pine like nature being the heaviest. Further along to the end of the taste, a floral hop taste comes to the tongue as well as a bit of the sweeter fruit coming back to the taste to leave a rather pleasant, moderately hopped and slightly sweeter pale ale flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both are nice for the more moderate blend of hop, malt and sweet and make for a very easy drinking feel overall. Overall – A quite easy drinking and enjoyable pale ale. Nothing crazy out of the ordinary, but rather tasty none the less.

Scipio (703) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a darker, reddish amber with a medium, thicker looking, though quickly fading white head. A fresh aroma consists of grassy hops, light pine, caramel, orange, and honey. The taste is dry, a bit sweet, and with some slight bitterness. The main impressions are a combination of grass and pine. Some candyish flavors and, apple, and hints of grapefruit are found as well. Medium in body, slick textured, and with above average carbonation. I find this refreshing to drink. Pretty solid effort here.
