On tap at Jackie O's.
More of a cloudy yellow than an amber.
Almost a wheat flavor. Fairly hoppy finish.
Decent drinking beer, but not u to the same standard as their other offerings.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a somewhat cloudy brownish-orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; a nice balance of hops and malt. Average on the palate. A solid easy-drinker, and appropriately coined as their "gateway ale".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasted and had good lacing. Good complex malt and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good session brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Light amber pour with a thin white head. Nose is clean citrus hops on top of lightly toasted malt. Simple and straightforward. Taste is clean--more clean citrus hops, toasty bread malt, and a nice herbal hop finish. Pretty grassy on the finish. Over carbonated, but it fluffs a thin body up.

Sampler flight on tap at the brewpub (Athens, OH). Pours a richly amber pour, touches of orange glow, firm haze and deeper orange hues come into the fold. A frothy offwhite head dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are touches of toast, biscuits, and bready malts. Gentle kiss of citrus, orange and mellow florals. Touches of earthy hops, gentle sweetness. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, firm bitterness of lemon, florals, and grass. Touches of grass and florals grow, gentle toasty malt, biscuity and pale grains, cereal and wheat bread elements. Middle is sitll firmly bitter, lighter bodied with a good drinkability and firm hopping for the style. Touches of toast, straw, and grass. Firm hopping lingers on the palate,e arthy and dry. Nice beer at 4.5 ABV.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the public house on 12/23/11. Clear amber pour with a thin beige head. Malty nose with piney and citrusy hops. Malty and caramelly flavor with pine, grapefruit and spicy hops all the way through to the finish. Can’t believe I’ve never rated this one before, but it was nice to try it again. A nice sessionable hoppy amber.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright amber colour, very little head, light foam. Somewhat fresh-smelling, sweet caramel aroma, light iron. The body is light with a slight sweetness towards the middle. The caramel fades into a hoppiness that barely exists. At least it’s slightly clean tasting.
