Good. Basic CCB pale ale but with prominent orange peel. Makes it just unique enough. Not much beyond that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Tap at CCB. Pour hazy yellow with white head. Lace well to the glass. Taste orange, hops, zest and lemon with some bitterness at the end. Good beer! Ill drink more.

markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Another step in the road to CCBs session beer dominance. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is a nice floral, grassy, and citrusy hop profile with some lemongrass and orange in the front. Flavor is similar with some nice citrus character all over- lemongrass and all manner of nice hoppiness. Light to medium in body and lingering hop punch in the finish.

Draft @ the brewery. Pours dark golden color with off white head. Aromas of citrus and oranges with some malts. Sweet oranges and grapefruit flavors with minimal maltiness. Medium body with average carbonation.

burg326 (3889) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2013
On draft at CCB, poured a light orangish yellow color with aromas of orange, orange peel, light hops, and some more citrus. Flavors are the same, light, refreshing, great citrus flavor, easy drinker, a solid summer beer.

Cigar City Lue Gim Gong pale ale has a lot of complexity, but light flavor overall - kind of like a light IPA. Nice mellow floral and slightly citrusy aroma. Light amber color with a quickly dissipating head. Several floral hop flavors with a slight citrus note. Not much bitterness on the palate and hop flavors linger. Lue Gim Gong is a nice light hoppy beer that isn?t in your face.

bierkitty (167) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Clear amber with a small head, Pine and orangey citrus hop aroma. Clean and dry. Hoppy without a lot of bitterness. Really yummy, We were too late to get a growler or more would have gone home with us.

As a Florida Cracker there probably isnt a better beer I could review first, except maybe CGs Florida Cracker. Im fairly new to this reviewing of good beers and developing my palate, so take it for what its worth. Appearance is super clear yellow gold with slight head. Aroma brings me back to youth peeling not quite fresh grapefruit and oranges from my backyard trees. Nice tingle of citrus tones then just skirting on the border of hops to confuse with an IPA. Judging the palate is still developing, but I feel that it tingles around the mouth for a nice light delayed subtly fizzled sensation. Overall, my expectations were met, and brought me back nostalgia of my youth (If you read the history on the beer Lue Gim Gong was very important to the citrus industry in Florida, 100% Valencia!) I would like to be more familiar with the "American Oak" taste mentioned in description to see where that plays in the taste.
