2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours a hazy golden color with some lacing. It has pale hops aromas that feature a bit of resin and grass. The taste is fairly non deScriptive with the hops flavoring in that nothing really stands out. It has a high amount of carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Date: July 9, 2015... Glassware: Barley Creek pint... Occasion: sitting in between storms, enjoying thirsty Thursday with me, myself, and I... Appearance: a darker amber body than expected--considering its name--with little effervescence; off-white head pours thin but creamy, flattening to a reasonable quarter-inch; ling becomes sporadic but visible.... Aroma: pleasant lemon, citrus and freshly mowed hay; aromas are faint and suggest little malt presence or balance; some odd funk catches at the profile’s end, turning a decent allure to a debatable one.... Palate: smooth, fizzy at the throat and a bit warming; creamy at the start, with a little sizzle at the teeth--thin in the middle, with an equally soft aftertaste... Taste: lemon zest battles some earthy, malty undercurrents--both may be losing; light bitterness cannot create a strong profile, though the citric hints of grapefruit and melon give the tastebuds something to contemplate--not a pale ale with a vast array of talent; the faint hint of flowers at the back end does leave me with a desire of another sip... Overall: Not sure how proud Franklin would be knowing he adorned this bottle--Yards offered a much better brew for Ben’s image to plug; a decent beer to compliment chips or pretzels, but not much else to say...should I end up in Allentown, I would definitely try Fegley’s other offerings before coming back to this...

bottled - nice color but odd flavor. Is that hops? citrus? Not sure - almost tastes like stale hops but I may have an old bottle

A decent pale ale, nothing special though. Somewhat hoppy, but just average.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured golden-orange in color with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops and not much else. Pretty one dimensional and rough around the edges. Tastes "amateurish".

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep golden color with a pillowy white head which lingers. Aroma is pine, citrus, sweet maltiness. Taste is pine, grainy woodiness, faded maltiness and sweetness, a bit harsh on the aftertaste of biscuit and soggy grain. This needs to be smoothed out.

Mostly clear, honey gold with a big head. Standard longneck, comical label. Hoppy, very fruity kumquat aroma - tart and sweet. Malty, woody, medium sweetness, tangy. Mouthy with a sweet finish, which also has some grassiness. Thanks to LuckyDog for pulling this back from his Atlantic coast swing.
