Had this at a fish fry and I donít know if it was the fish or the beer, but they both were great. Nice Pale Ale with an amber color and very smooth finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An above average ale. A few samples have been a bit yeasty/cloudy. Nothing particulary wrong or right with it. A fine all around session beer, but nothing in need of a critical tasting.

This beer is barely noticeable. The aroma is non-existent, the color is nothing special, in the taste is average.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is sweet with nodes of fruit and citrus. Has a hazy light amber color with a small white head. Has a very malty character with hints of coriander and nuts. A nice slightly bitter and fresh finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very hoppy notes, and initial flavor. Overwhelms a lot of the malt flavor, which seems unusual in a beer with a caramel hue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was not as bold as I expected; subdued, malty and pleasant. A fine looking deep orange and amber beer. The head was fairly minute/thin. Lighter on the palate than expected -- buoyant almost, a bit thin and rather crisp. Flavor is malty, a bit of bread, and a definite citrus lingers. A fine beer but certainly not exceptional.

Very orange with a small head. Slightly carbonated, with a very strong hop aroma and taste. Excellent ale. Had from the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 This is a great session beer. Beautiful and aromatic with hops on the nose but not too much. Itís got a fruity aroma steeped in citrus and floral with honey and cereal overtones. The color is a a bit towards light bronze. Very cloudy. The taste is similar to the aroma with a nice balance of hops and malt that leads towards a slightly bitter fruit and medium cereal flavors.
Overall itís an easy drinking beer that can be enjoyed year round and goes well with lots of foods.
