COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially kilned Crystal malt and a generous portion of American cascade hops are used for a refreshing, spicy aroma, and a long, dry finish. Great with food, it’s big, bold, and bittersweet. Named best beer in Ohio and winner of a Bronze Medal in the World Beer Championships. Four Stars-Great Lakes Beer Guide.

12oz bottle-A light orangish amber body with a huge white head and an aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of the same with a dry finish. Not bad but not good. Another Columbus overly carbonated beer.

Very drinkable. Nice balanced yet intense cascade hops. Not anything to get excited about, but a good example of the style. I continue to come back to it

[bottle] Light amber in color, clear. Aroma is pure citrus- cascade all the way. Crisp flavors, more hoppy citrus. Sweet malt flavors are a bit plain for me, (maybe its the specially kilned crystal), but this still remains a decent, drinkable beer.

Had this beer on 1/22/2006. This thing sucks, I open the bottle and it goes all over. I tried to pour it and it foamed up over the glass and just kept coming out of the top of the bottle. Color is a pale brown. Carbonation is not as high as you would think with the way it foamed up all over the place and the head dropped down to nothing. Aroma is a bit sour. Taste is light and tinny. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish comes on with a sweet caramel like taste and a sharp bitterness. It reminds me of a home brew that went bad. Overall its just bad, this is just one of the worst beers I have had.

McGarnigle (607) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2007
On tap at the Columbus airport. Clear amber beer with slightly tan head. The body is medium with lively carbonation. I thought this was only a moderately hopped pale ale. Citrusy, and somewhat piney. Dry finish. A nice crisp beer.

frankenkitty (2005) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Mid-amber with a small white head leaving light sheets of wet lace. Orange & dry tea notes (instant tea) in the nose, rye & more bittering late. Pleasant, bitter hopped flavor, light pepper & citrics before a sweetly citric finish. As per the menu, this one has a, "log, dry finish." Nice.

Note: Yes... the menu said, "log".

Gentle hoppy nose. Clear orange amber in color with a decent white head. Sweet hoppy flavor with a little bitter aftertaste. Finishes dry. A slight warm, frothy mouth feel. A pleasant pale ale. Not outstanding, but not uneventful either.
