From the Bottle at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 10/10/2008
Very fruity aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy and fruity pineapple flavour. A little dryness in a crisp and bitter lasting finish.

Bottle. I was told that this beer is exclusively brewed for the liquor store Beverages & More! Despite its origin, this beer is pretty good. Some peach and mint in the nose to compliment the hops. The flavor has a nice spice and good balance. For the $3.50 I paid for a six pack, this could be the best value I've ever seen.

A strange hop aroma, but not in bad way but a different way. Honey gold color and some nice head just like my bitch. To tell the truth this doesn’t taste much different than Coastal Fog’s amber. It is lightly hopped and has a slight caramel character. Maybe a touch of vanilla and a spice flavor of clove. Good stuff to drink numerous bottles too.

Cheap 12 pack box of 12 oz bottles at BevMo, Fresno. So... low expectations, that were met with surprise. Pours a darkish amber orange. [English style?] Aroma was light, but not bad smelling. Nice creamy head that lasted about half way down [slow drinking] Taste was OK, malty with some hops. Not too bad for a summer beer, I’m thinking. Not sure about it’s true origins, some speculation that it’s contract brewed?
For the price, it’s not bad.

Similar to the amber ale with the addition of pale hops. Has earthy tones in the front and some pale bitterness in the finish. For the price, you can’t beat this stuff.

Med gold color, medium head. A lighter tasting pale ale, not very bitter, yet with a nice hop finish. Mild malt flavor, good malt/hop balance. Full flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
