BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle shared by sonnycheeba. Pours lightly hazy copper with a medium, tight bubbled off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is minty, herbal and grassy hops with biscuit and meal malt. Flavor is moderate hops, lightly tart, medium bitterness, low supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium to light body and medium carbonation.

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Clear amber leaning towards copper pour with a pretty minimal head that doesn’t leave much lace at all. Spicy, fruity nose with caramel and earth undertones. Fairly earthy on the palate with a decent amount of fruit and spice. Enjoyable but might benefit from a little more carbonation.

snoworsummer (1858) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly, fizzy beige head. Tastes like light grains, light roasted malt, dry earthiness, and a hint of burnt coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Light aroma of roasted malt and toast.

JHeath99 (782) - - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle from a sampler box. Pours a transparent amber with a ring of off white head. Aroma of basic malts and hops. Smells almost like fresh unsweet tea. Taste is pretty much like the atoms but there is a more floral lingering.

Can pour. Cloudy amber with solid off white head. Nose is grass, pine and toffee. Restrained. Medium body. Malt forward. Some mild fruit cake. Easy drinking. Clean aftertaste.

Draft. Pours clear amber with nice white head. Nose is lots of bread. Taste is pine and malt. Very dry taste and aftertaste. Okay.

drfabulous (3824) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Malty orange body. Big hits of citrus in body. Light hops with some caramel. Ratings are too low on this one. Nothing wrong here.

Drank it with Erik at Solas Irish pub. Drank it out of a bottle. Aroma has light citrus notes and a vague graininess. It’s good but too light, a little bit watery. But it’s decent enough to order another one.

fernans (32) - Rhode Island, USA - APR 13, 2014
Sessionable beer. Doesn’t jump off the page but enjoyable. Some sweetness up front, very light on the his for a pale ale. Color is a nice amber, head disappears quickly.
