Clear golden with orange highlights. Aroma of some light spicy hops as well as light cereal - pale malts. Taste is pretty clean and crisp, with a light honey sweetness and some light floral/spicy hops. This was well done, enjoyed it.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Eric. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a large white head. The aroma is honey and fruity/spicy hops. The flavor is smooth, spicy hops, lots of hops here, oranges and light bitterness. Some honey and toasted malts.

Christian (11219) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2010
Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of spicy and citrus hops. Dry citrus dominated hoppy flavour with medium bitterness. Must be something in the American brewing style that delivers the citrus.

alexanderj (3324) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle; poured a slightly hazy, dull gold color with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma of german malt, bread, flowers, spice/herbs and something akin to wine. Flavor had something that reminded me of some gruner wine I had in Vienna for some reason; not sure why. Pretty dry and bready, with some herbs, but more flowery/earth in the finish. A pretty easy drinking brew overall, that is actually quite flavorful for the style.

On tap at the Hopyard. Hoppy aroma with lemon and orange peel. The flavor is the same with apples. Strong hop presence with hay and a grassy finish. Flavorful and refreshing. Nice.
