JDBaker11058 (1316) - Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Appearance: clear copper, with a solid two-finger white head and a ton of rich lacing everywhere. Aroma: solid whiff of slightly toasty, bready malts, with notes of earthy, garden fresh hops. Taste: malty and slightly metallic, with juicy citrus hops balancing with resinous pine against the sweet and toasty side . Finish: smooth, not very long, with floral and citrussy hops lingering, but not overly bitter. Notes: On tap at teh DFH Alehouse in Gaithersburg. In the vein of an English ESB. Im not much of a pale ale fan, but this was extremely drinkable.

Pours a light amber. Aroma is of hops, floral and honey. Nice hop notes. Known as their more accessible beer but still has a Dogfish taste.

This was my first beer from back from lent. Im finding my palate is much more sensitive to hops, so this seemed hoppy to me. But it had a goot fruity aroma and a good mouth feel. Good beer to usher back the beer drinking.

Very good beer! I am surprised people gave it such a low rating. Its a relaxed, good beer. Not too strong in any way or another, light enough but has plenty of flavor and sweetness. Give it a try if you gave friends that like nice beer but arent to Snobbish.

Pretty pedestrian for dogfish head. Not a ton of aroma but the taste is nicely balanced. Not a bad session beer.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap at DFH Alehouse Falls Church. Pours a clear gold. Moderate foamy white head with good lacing. Aroma is grass and floral hops. Flavor is similar. Not hoppy like youd expect from a pale ale. Drinks almost more like a kolsch. Not great as an APA, but a nice session beer.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2011
On tap @ 1702 - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a thin white head. Flavor is light malt with a hint of diacetyl. Diacetyl? Flavor is also light toasted malt. Hardly any hop presences in this beer. Older keg? Maybe. Light to medium body. A boring beer.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2011
355ml bottle. Poured a golden-orange with off white thin head. Aroma was grainy/nutty, moderately hoppy. Flavour was a sharp hop bite upfront with hoppiness throughout. There was also a distinct malt nuttiness with a bit of skunk. Pretty good but not as outstanding as many of DHs beers.

Bottle. Smells of honey, hops and hay. Tastes pours a nice gold color with a thin head. Taste is sweeter then id expect. Not bad, not great. Nice to ftry a sessionable beer from DFH.
