Decent, quaffable light ale. Has a pleasant medium gold appearance with a slight head. The aroma has hints of mown grass with some hints of Saaz hops. Tart, slightly fruity flavor. A bit clingy and starchy on the aftertaste.

An odd tart, kumquatty aroma. Decent label, orange-amber beer, cool cap. Tastes very much like it smells, oddly fruit-tart. Medium long tangy, hop finish with medium mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber/copper colour with a super dense white head. Aroma of vegetables, malt, a bit of hops and some residual sweetness. Medium to Light-bodied; Slight fruity sweetness with a predominant malt character and a subtle hoppiness throughout. Aftertaste shows some drying character and a bit of a spicey finish. Overall, a sub-par APA, but not the absolute worst either. All-in-all, a decent beer, but if you want a really good beer by this brewery, go with the BackYard IPA! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 13-December-2003.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white head that quickly diminishes to nothing, leaving tiny bits of lace. Aroma is fairly boring and mild, mostly just sweet. Flavor is also quite boring, slightly sweet, with a tiny bit of floral hops showing up for the end. Body is quite light.

There is nothing fancy about this beer, but it is a decent beer to drink.The appearance was a medium sized ivory creamy and rocky head that consisted of fine-small sized bubbles.The body was slightly hazy and it had a lot of fizzy and lively carbonation.The hue was orange and this beer left a good lacing on the sides of my glass.The nose was malty, hoppy, fruity and citrus.The flavor was lightly hoppy, tart and it had a bit of an aftertaste.The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and light bodied.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured a small head os fine to medium sized off-white mostly diminishing bubbles that left a fair lacing and a carbonated transparent amber colored body behind. Its aroma is a nice malt hop mix and its mouthfeel is tingly with a dry sweet finish. The flavor is mild and overshadowed by the tingly mouthfeel. Underneath it there is a mild bitter malt hop flavor trying to come out and play ball.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Creamy white head, amber colored body, musty smell and somewhat bland taste. Not a lot of hops for a pale ale, but it was a good tasting beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale gold, with a frothy white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, with little malt presence. Beer is very light, with a slightly dry finish. Golden ales are wierd, because they seem to have some lager qualities. Slight nutyy yeastiness, mild american hops. Kind of dull.
