På fat. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Dofter av tropisk fruktighet och karamell. Karamell, kåda, grape och apelsin i smaken. Något svag sötma, fin beska. Fyllig kropp.

bartlebier (2420) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2013
(US backlog Sep 2012) Draught@Capital City Brewing, Downtown DC 12/09/2012. Somewhere between a UK bitter and Magic Hat’s interpretation of a fruity IPA. Rather flat carbo. Ok but forgettable, bar and service enhancing the anonymity of their brews. 70/100

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Gingery orange colour. A quite poky (abv-wise) APA, drifting more into IPA territory. Good clean Mouthfeel. Plenty of pungent hops throughout. Some spicy, tangy notes on the palate. Maybe some orange peel. Slight residual sweetness on the finish but not too stick. Very solid.

At grill. Fairly clear. Slight haze decent aroma. Really good tasting crisp brew. A little astringent but I actually thought this was not a downer. Crisp finish. I could hang out at the bar and drink this for a long time.

Huhzubendah (2809) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia. Th beer is transparent and light orange hued with a quarter inch of head. As the head recedes, it coats the glass with lacing. The aroma is a balance of malt and hops, with subtle notes of candied fruit. A bit sweet, with a light bitterness in the back. Light bodied but not thin with appropriate carbonation. Simple, drinkable. Overall, this was ok. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-29-2012

Tap at the Shirlington location. Clear rich orange pour with a spotty head. Earthy and floral, good caramel malt backing. Pretty solid brew.

On tap at Capital City. Good pale ale aroma and taste. A little on the muted side. Was looking for a stronger hop presence.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Clear orange amber with a short-lasting white head. Tastes like caramel, biscuits, fruits, orange and lemon. Very lemoney, yet somewhat light bitterness in the finish. Lemon taste remains for a while. Medium-bodied, somewhat sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Good pale ale.
