snifter / dead copper body with a tight and white, thick and frothy, white head. smooth flavor and mouthfeel. i think it’s malty than hoppy. pretty and sweet with quiet bitters; floral, caramel, and a bit of grapefruit. a good session brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rather a typical American pale ale but with a strong green tea element to the flavor and aroma, complementing the normal floral hoppiness. Recommended for tea lovers.

Poured an amber color with a small head. Aroma of hops and malt. Flavor follows suit with a nice hoppy beginning and maltiness in the middle with a smooth finish.. Great session brew!

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 (draft) A great beer for starting out an evening, yet interesting enough to make an entire session out of it. Smooth and malty. Tastes like it should have a higher ABV.

To me, a great session ale, fruity, good hop flavour, a bit of a flowery thing. Quality beer

I had this in chicago on draft and loved it. Had it in a bottle outside of chicago, and didnt care much for it. Had it in a bottle brought back from chicago and loved it again. I guess if you want the true taste, have it directly from chicago. Has a bit of a bite at the end, but starts off smooth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle, best by 6/1/05) Large off-white head atop a clear dark amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, floral, pine, caramel, light lemon. Taste is medium sweet, floral, orange, caramel, tea. Watery light-medium body, light acidity -- a very drinkable session ale.

A very enjoyable all the time brew. Nothing fancy, just a plain solid pale ale with flavor enough to entice the taste buds, but not too overdone where you cant drink it while eating. nice citrus taste with a wonderful thirst quenching ability (rare in good beers, to me anyways). Overall one of my favorite regular brews to purchase.
