COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing pale ale was created to be consumed while enjoying the bounty of the bay. Gold in color, light to medium in body, and a crisp finish with hints of citrusy American hop varieties.

Voting day, and I elect this bottle. Pours very light in color, yellow amber, fizzy, and downright macro-looking. It has a nice fresh airy aroma of light citric hops, and the flavor holds up to the promised. Exceptionally easy to drink, crisp, clean and very well balanced. Nice to see people brewing good ’regular’ beers and not always pushing for monster ABVs and knockout flavors. (#4816, 11/6/2012)

Poured from big bottle. Aroma of hops. Toasted malt, hay. Nice lookin clear gold with puffy white head. Lots of hops in flavor, pine with floral and citrus as well. Dry malt, wheat, hay and citrus. Dry, refreshing feel. Well done.

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Glad to get to try this. Medium gold, clear, nice white head lasted. Aroma was light biscuit, hint of earthy malts. Flavor is a match, with a faint hint of grapefruit hop mixed in. Nothing spectacular so to speak, but totally solid. Nice beer. Probably would match well with a grilled striper too.

Bottle shared by Ed, thank you sir! Hazy golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of grass and flowers. Taste is bitter grass and lemon peel. Very nice.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Serving: 22 oz. bottle. It pours a hazy light yellow with a slight white head. The nose has nice grassy and citrus notes. The flavor follows suit with grass, light lemon, and pale malt. Light in body with a pretty clean finish. This brew is in the same vein as Victory Summer Love and is a great session brew for the warmer months or just a solid daily drinker. Very clean and very nice.

Bottle. Gold bodied with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is spicy hops, floral hops and soft citrus notes. Taste is toasted malt, grains, floral hops, grass, spicy hops and light buttered biscuit. Body is medium with a bubbly, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more spicy and floral hops, toasted malt, light caramel, grass, citrus and biscuit notes.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to Drake: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a fresh piny and grassy hop nose with a light malty sweetness. Starts with pretty good fullness and clean pale malty sweetness and a zesty herbal hop bitterness before a drier, smooth bittersweet finish. True to style and quite drinkable.

On tap at Rustico during the Devil’s Backbone NoVA launch. Served in a taster glass. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. Good spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries a pretty good dose of American hops and a light touch of bread in the background. Flavor is nice and hoppy, though not at all over the top. Body is light. Good hop bitterness. Nice drinkability.
