COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2010
On tap at the brewery - Deep amber pour with a big white foamy head. Flowery and lightly tropical fruity hops on the nose, with light, caramel malt in the background. Tastes sweet and fruity, with light lemon and a bit of grassy hops on the finish. A bit flat, however. Medium-bodied and slick in the mouth. Smelled good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

probably the lightest most sessionable apa I ever had. light pine hops and light malt in both the aroma and flavor. flavor is a littile stronger in the aroma but kind of a watery body.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2010
Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready, slightly fruity and wooden as well as slightly herbal. Flavour is quite much the same. A rather dry pale ale which probably is near to it’s best before by now...

milewide (1386) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Weak grain aroma, and nothing but grain in the taste. Did have some lingering hop bitterness---that wasn’t in the aroma or taste. Light amber color, and thin body. Not a memorable brew!

arminjewell (5716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Pours amber with white head, aroma is citrusy with a bit of malt. Taste up front is orange and lemon, tangy, and heads into a bit of bready/caramel sweetness that bitters a bit at the end. Not a bad session beer.

Goblincat (379) - Westland, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Nice light hoppy aroma, begging to be tasted. The taste is smoother than I expected, with much less bitterness than I thought it would have. Real smooth, but overall nothing stands out flavor-wise. Quite drinkable overall.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 30, 2009
12 oz twist off capped bottle sent to me by my winter 2009 Secret Santa. Pour is ever so slight haze golden yellow with a one inch white head that falls with big bubbles and some light lacing. Aroma of some faint orange and vanilla sweetness, along with only a whisper of dusty toasty grain. Taste is the dustcy tasted garin malt up front, followed by a sharp sweet orange fruit and bitter orange peel, finishing with a bit of a cardboard dirtiness. Palate is medium to thin bodies, above average carbonation, and a lingering wet cardboard aftertaste. I think there is a decent beer in here somewhere, but its lost in the dusty cardboard - perhaps too much travel or age? Even still, its an easy drinking beer and I had no trouble finishing it. Thanks for sending this one my way Santa.

Light orange-yellow, whitish foam. Herbal hoppines, metallic, light sweet aroma. Taste is caramel, sweet metallic, drying, herbal grassy hop finish.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 4, 2009
12oz can. Pours a bright, clear, apricot-golden color; thin off-white head with light retention and patchy lacing. Light, slightly hoppy aroma showing citrus and mineral bitterness, lemony with a touch of honey; quiet, crisp nose. Medium mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation, good levels of acidity on the edges; lively, citrus and mineral hop character at the forefront, showing some juiciness and solid bitterness; not bad, and reasonably drinkable, but just not enough clarity in the hop presence and a touch too light. Lasting bitterness: minerals and lightly toasted malts.

Bottle from I remember not where. Pours amber/gold with a slight white head. Very light aroma of pale malt. A little floral hop. Medium body with average carbonation. Flavor is light caramel and something floral. Tasty little thing.
