COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of an English summer ale albeit with an American accent. It is unfiltered but has already settled bright. Amarillo hops were used but not as aggressively as we would for a pale ale and it is golden in color making it a nice refreshing ale with some citrus notes from the hops but it’s not too bitter

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2010
Draught, 5.0% at the brewpub. Weak grapefruity aroma, hint of vomit. Cloudy amber colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is slightly rough, perhaps there is a hint of caramel under there. Not bad, just anonymous.

i had a caramel concoction with an off white head yesterday at the chelsea brewery while trying to enjoy the blues and bbq fest. sign above bar listed abv @ 5.0 %. nice lightly sweet grapefruit and floral citrus brew with comparable malt. the beer is with good body, substantial as the carbonation is literally in perfect harmony with the brew. as i looked at the description and thought about the truth of it i realized that there was no reason to not rate this one quite highly. so very enjoyable!

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Cask at The Pony Bar. Creamy white head over a bright golden beer. This looks great. The nose is awesome. Soft fruity yeast over a bright berryish character. There is a light touch of citrus as well. A little bit of orange peel over a nice crackery character. Softly bready with a light resinousness on the finish. A very soft, fresh, perfectly balanced pint. Really tasty.

blipp (6359) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Draft at Ginger Man. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. The aroma has a wheaty/bready malt base with citric and floral hop notes. The flavor is on the light side, but it is very well balanced. Crisp hop notes and a lighter body make it very refreshing and enjoyable.
