Pretty nice balance of hops and malts, but not overly spectacular. However, I give it credit for drinkability.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Re-rate: the last few I have had have been horribly metallic and just bad. I will only take a few points off for now, but if I get another bad one, I will have to take it down further. based on some other ratings it looks like this just isn’t as good anymore. I also think it is one of those beers that has to be drank fresh cause it can go downhill fast.

Foxbush (1483) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2006
A friend gave me this pale ale. The head was white with lacing. The color was clear copper. The beverage was very inviting. The texture was smooth but the bitterness was thin ,with some citrus. The beer just failed to wow! me. I have had other flying dogs that were much better.

WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours deep copper, tiny bit of amber. Very clear. Nice, creamy off-white head. Hangs around a little while, laces nicely. Aroma is of some sweet malts, a little bit of hops, not very strong. Flavor is good and very nicely balanced. Good bitterness with some malts to balance it out. Not a lot of hop flavor, but it was more pronounced as the beer warmed. Palate is light to medium, a little bit of a creamy feel, good amount of carbonation. Good, not great APA. Very drinkable session PA. I like it, but there are others I like better.

beerlover82 (220) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2006
Deep amber with almost no head and poor lacing. Slightly malty and sweet aroma, taste. A little thin-bodied. Very refreshing on a hot spring/summer day after mowing the lawn, but so is the cheap mass stuff.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Amber clear with a short lasting beige head. Strong hoppy nose, tasty light caramel. Toasty nuts and lovely grapefruit / citrus. Clean hoppy ale. Refreshing.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2006
From bottle. Copper pour with white head. Sweet malt and lightly hoppy nose, with a metallic undertone. Initial flavor follows nose, but thin, and then disappears. Some bitter in the finish. Not especially good, but this was one of my gateway beers.
