COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing pale ale was created to be consumed while enjoying the bounty of the Bay and protecting local waters. Gold in color with a light body and pleasant hop bouquet of traditional noble German hops blended with the intense citrus of American hop varieties.

Underwhelming beer a hint of hops and citrus on the nose, looks good amber color with a lasting white well laced head. Watery feel without much taste just a hint of hops, no lasting finish.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This is a golden yellow brew that has a nice hop aroma. It has a small white head and is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation

kramer (5348) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Can. Clear gold body with a frothy white head that left some nice lacing. The aroma is just lightly hoppy with some floral and citrus notes over a light crackery malt base. The flavor is pretty light on the hops, minimal bitterness, floral and perfumy hops, not much in the way of citrus. The malt is on the drier side at least, with minimal sweetness. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft gentle carbonation. Not a stand-out of the style, drinkable enough though.

Pours an orange color with a foamy head. Notes of plastic, faint skunky hops, and orange citrus. Very muted.

reggiedunlop (3410) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Pours clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has slightly sweet straw. Flavor follows suit...some slightly earthy bitterness but this is pretty malty. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/straw. Meh.

Great pale ale that stays light and crisp and doesn’t linger around too long.

jcos (1664) - Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Can over the summer. Just like other beers form this brewery, very good. Nice amount of light bitterness.

EithCubes (5206) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Can. Pours clear golden with very excited but sparse carbonation and a medium sudsy off-white head. Nose is honestly more malt-present , touch of lemony citrus. Taste clean and clear, medium bitterness and very much like a Pils, snappy in its crispness, but too sweet and slightly metallic, too mineral-heavy and the chalky aspect is very off-putting. Hops themselves aren’t stale, really, but dank in the direction of spoiled. Medium-full body and just not enjoyable.

guzzler67 (1550) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bright amber/gold appearance with a large white head and very good lacing. Earthy, whole grain aroma dotted with herbal hops. Orchard-like flavors turn more bitter with a mild ciderish note in the aftertaste. Crisp, medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lasting finish.
