Very interesting - nice citric hoppiness combined with an almost minty or tingly rye malt. Crisp, refreshing. A nice one.

Perfect score for the look... penny-colored to perfection. Unremarkable, but presented so well that I am hard pressed to find one negative thing to say. Maybe that in itself qualifies as remarkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strange light pale brown with a orangy glow, kinda coppery, looks like a dark honey or thin maple syrup. Finger high head of off-white creamy, bumpy foam. Smells of fresh citrus fruits, not to sour, dull orange and peachy, very nice. Taste is smooth and pale of malt, caramel malt, with a short hop twinge, very clean and mellow. Fairly sugary sweet but dulled, short lived with a small creamy tang, quite enjoyable. Medium bodied, with a smooth creamyness feel, nice. Major drinkability, its one smooth, lighty creamy, yummy, mellowy sweet ride.

Crystal clear, amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Decent retention; excellent lacing.
Caramel, maple syrup, bubble gum, floral hops and butterscotch in the aroma.
The flavor is malty and chewy up front. Decently balanced with lightly bitter hops on the backside. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
Short, bitter-sweet, dry finish. I'll go against the grain and say "I really like this one."

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A refreshing light copper ale with a crisp fresh hop flavor, very smooth and drinkable, no offensive aftertaste. Medium to light in body, it is a good beer served with food.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sunny but hazy amber-yellow. Terrific bishop’s collar of lace at the top. Nice to look at. Some nice sweet and biscuity barley malt smell. Mild hop presence. Pleasant but not much to speak of in terms of variety. The taste is pleasant, sweetish barley. Minor citrusy hop that adds nice balance. Has a hoppy pilsnerish quality. A fine example of a light ale with a citrus kick. (Similar in many ways to Erie Brewing’s Mad Anthony.) The feel is creamy and medium bodied. Nice bod. It’s quite quaffable. Light but not watery; hoppy but not bitter.

Bottle--Small head with a dark gold color. Lacing stayed with the drink throughout. Slight caramel favor with no bitterness at all. Gotta go with the other comments that it’s very drinkable. Good stuff. 1.49 Pettys

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 I have been rather fond of a couple of the beers from this company so I was reasonably optimistic going into this one. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a bronze color with a large yellow-tan head. The aroma is sharp with floral and fruity hops. The flavor is nice nutty malts with a moderate but not overpowering floral and lightly fruity hop presence. The finish is nutty. A nice beer overall.
