Very fruity and citrusy smells coming together to form a sort of tart pungency. You get a bit of spicy hops followed by the cereal, bready sweet malts and then ending with the fruity tart citrus hop flavored bitter finish. Very delicious beer. Its a very creamy rich beer for a lighter pale ale style. You can tell it isn’t an American style Pale Ale but still has enough hop delicious flavor melding together to create a unique Pale ale.

geologyguy (631) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2014
slightly citrusy hop smell, taste is a bit hoppy with good amount of citrus hop flavor...not too much...perhaps just a bit too much? smooth maltier flavor upon swallowing...finishes hoppier...decent, just a tad too bitter for me...

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a bottling date of Feb 27, 2014 back when it was probably snowing and freezing. And now it is May and this has a nice cloudy amber pour with an off-white head that lingers and laces. The caramel malty sweetness comes forward loud and clear in the aroma with any hop bitterness way in the background. It is sweet like the style recommends. The body is medium and smooth. The taste is also quite sweet and roasty with little to no bitterness filling in the blanks. It is a good representation of the style, which is pretty traditional.

574deadzone (984) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottled May 15, 2014 (nice). Pours a clear darker gold with a thick beige head that settles to a thick ring and film, leaving lots of hanging, dripping soapy lace. Nose involves some toffee malt notes, subtle floral and spicy hops, and some darker bread character. Fairly sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, softer carb, a bit oily, with a bready doughy crisp bitter finish. Well made, drinkable brew. Easygoing, yet has some substance to it.

marcus (6304) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours dark amber with a nice off-white head and a bread and toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with moderate hop bitterness. Refreshing and easy to drink.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle provided by Liz. Pours clear bright copper with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma is floral with slightly roasty malt. Med body or nearly. Flavor starts roasty malt followed by a low dose of mostly floral hop. It’s bitter and finishing towards dry. Drinking good.

cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours light gold with a huge foaming white pillowy head. Aroma is bready malts and some floral hops. Also some stale woody earthy notes. Taste is a bit stale, probably my fault for having something a bit dated. Floral notes and bready malts.
