Leafs93 (1884) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus and grass. Taste is sweet with faint hints of bitterness. Light bodied and very easy to drink, a lawnmower beer and sessionable. Unfortunately a little bland for an APA.

cmacklin (422) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a medium, creamy, short lived off-white head. Grainy aroma with hay, bread and a hint of fruit. Sweet, mild grain flavour with caramel and a dry, slightly sour finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Nothing special.

dalekliz (899) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of grains, citrus hops, brown sugar, malt, yeast. Taste has a bit of a bitter hoppy bite that gets watery, with bready yeast, grass, malt. Lingering watery yeast and hops. Very drinkable.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Wood, fruity hop aroma with notes of bread. Appearance is gold with an average head with below average head retention. Flavor consists of fruity, woody/spicy hop flavor with notes of bread and caramel. The beer is oxidized. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is medium. Overall, it's a below average pale ale. The beer tastes oxidized and there is still 2 months left till it "expires." Plus it tastes watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1327) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours orange-yellow with a one finger white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of biscuit malts, pine, sweet malts, and some metallic notes. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some vanilla, herbal hops, and grass. Has a medium-light bod with a semi watery mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, medium-short finish. Overall, a rather mediocre XPA.

guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Clear yellow appearance with a small white head and light lacing. Subtle biscuit-like aroma with some herbal hops in the background. Flavor of toasted malts with a modest amount of spicy, herbal hops. Medium to light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel and an average length finish.

A pretty mild-mannered pale ale. Goes down easy, not overly hoppy or piney. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"another average offering - nothing bad. nothing stands out. a little cereal malt, a little sweet, and a bit of floral and bittering hops, but not very aromatic."

Bottle. Muted nose. Average carbonation. Straw yellow color - not my favorite. All beer flavors are mild and muted. No off-odors or flavors. Pleasant, but definitely not one I’d buy in the future.

Faint caramel malt aroma. Taste is a plain mild hops with a bit if a grass malt taste. Nothing special.
