Flight at the tap room. Clear medium amber with a good sized white head that lingers. Light toffee and pine with some floral notes. Light malt base supporting a medium bitter middle that fades through the finish. Medium- mouth with average carbonation.

Ferris (8012) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft - Pale malts, light hops and some biscuit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Biscuit, hoppy bitterness and a pale malt sweetness. The sweetness and dry finish donít work for me.

stevoj (2952) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bitter and dry, pours out a hazy medium golden with small tight whitem head. Faint aroma of malt, hops kick in late at the taste and finish. Sharp and tangy palate.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2014
16oz can. Amber color with a small, foamy white head. Aroma is a mix of caramel sweetness and citrus. Initial impression is big on sweet, toasted malts. The longer it sits on your palate it eventually gives way to a muddled citrus and floral finish. Well carbonated with slightly dry texture. How can I not like a beer that pays homage to the good old days of Drapes, Malts and DMac?

Poured a clear orange color with aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, citrus, light hay and some light malt. Flavors are the same a nice grapefruit, zest and some malt. A solid pale ale overall.
