Draft @ CBBC. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Nose is of citric, lime hops and some toasted malts. Slightly drying, toasted malts medium-to-low bitterness, round mouthfeel. A bit of lemon fruitiness in the flavor as well. Drinkable slightly off-the-wall APA.

Cloudy dark orange color bit the brewer said it is usually clear and a bit lighter. Aroma is light, caramel malt and light hops. Flavor is smooth sweet and hop balanced, crisp finish.

On tap at CBBC, pours cloudy amber. Unexpected, but very nice bitterness that pushes through a solid malt base for a pale. Medium bodied with medium bitterness, on top of a light carbonation with a nice finish with a touch of bitterness to wrap it up. Overall another good drinkable beer for the Florida heat.

22 oz bottle. Foggy orange with a puffy white head. Nose is orange juice, lemon tea and dough. Medium light with moderate carb. Taste is citrus peel and pith. Nicely balanced, easy drinking.

Fresh bomber. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber color with a thick, fluffy head of eggshell to beige foam. Dense, solid walls of lacing coat the glass almost entirely. The nose is very bready, showing a clean, lightly toasted, dry cereal grain base that is balanced with a light dusting of grasses and mild citrus. Flavors largely follow suit, again coming across as balanced and mostly dry. Lightly peppery, grassy green notes cut through the dry, wheaty cereal and toasted white bread elements. Hints of pithy citrus lend further drying, bittering character. The body is moderate in both stature and carbonation, drinking easy because the heft seems more from well-attenuated and unfiltered grain malt than from laboring residual sugars. Good brew. Nothing fancy, just solid and balanced. Boring perhaps, but free of any off-putting qualities.

Via trade with Dchmela, a bonus extra local beer! The aroma is citrus, bread, caramel. The appearance is translucent amber, white head. The flavor is citrus, vegetable, caramel, metal. The finish is resin and metal. Medium in body. Not bad, not great.

Fairly fresh bomber. This pours a slightly hazy, dark golden amber color and topped by a thick head of off white foam that slowly recedes and coats the glass with lacing nicely. The aroma is based mostly in toasted, dry cereal grains and bready malts with hints of citrus and a touch of clean, grassy hops. The flavor follows suit and come across mostly dry and well balanced. The dry toasted cereal and bread malts form the base while some lightly peppery, grassy hops add some bitterness for balance. Hint of citrus fruit come through and add a touch of sweetness while lending to the bitterness from the hops. Medium bodied and easy drinking with moderate carbonation and just really well balanced. This is a nice pale ale that is pretty straight forward, but balanced and enjoyable either way.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Pours a murky dark orange with a nice sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing and sticks around a while. Aroma has a slight spruce bent to it - but otherwise is pretty neutral. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some light citrus notes, a bit of spiciness. Smooth drinking and a good companion to pizza. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp.

22oz bottle from smith4498, thanks Jason! Pours a somewhat hazed, deeper gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fruity citrus florals and grass with a bready pale malt backing. Some decent lemon, grapefruit, and orange notes with a slight sharpness. Flavor is similar. Lots of floral citruses up front with a bready pale malt backing and a caramel sweetness. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with some malt sweetness and a good amount of citruses. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but a pretty decent pale ale. Enjoyable enough.
