Pours with a nice thick head, looks good, nice and clear with a dark golden hue. I smell bread, along with biscuit and a bit of grapefruit and pine in the nose. Tastes of caramel with some bitterness and finishes dry. It’s a middle of the road American Ale, but a decent one at that.

Pours a cloudy orange with a smallish head. Orange aroma. The taste is a bit muddled. I like in some aspects, but overall this is not for me.

wheresyourball (481) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tried this along with the IPA and Summer Ale. This was probably the best of the three. Pours dark orange, with a hoppy nose. Flavor is hops and malt, with some floral notes. Dry finish. Ok.

Nice and drinkable. Somewhat refreshing and very pale. Nice to drink in the propper ambiance too.

Derek881 (996) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy, hazy, deep amber color with a large, foamy off-white head that had average retention, and modest cling and lacing. The aroma had a sweet fruity effect with ample malt featuring caramel and sugar, and a slight citrus note. Its taste was predominantly sour and fruity, with a barley grain character, and little sweetness. The body was a tad harsh with a thickish, dry feel, and low to average carbonation and life.

12oz into a pint. Pours a dark orange fluid amber medeling color. Taste is up front dirty hoppy bitter. Hops up front but then the medeling malts transpire to form this brew. A nice brew for the style, fresh full bodied ales are nice, especially in the cold weather. Spices transpire to fold into the mix joyfully as well. A for effort, B for product.
