bottle-pours lite copper with a fizzy white head. carmel malt dominates the nose with touches of leafy hops. a bit of oxidization as well. earthy and leafy hop flavors with some carmel malts-pretty boring and not good. i didnt realize this was made by gordon biersch-the label said some company in new york. i dunno.. anyways, not very good!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle brewed in Utica, N.Y. with an expiration date of Apr 04, 2010. The pour is golden yellow with a decent fizzy white head and pretty good lacing. Light but noticeable floral hops are the main aroma with a dash of malts. The taste is bitterly sharp with a hopped finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled in a 12oz bottle from Costco in Mtn View. Overall a very weak brew. Flavor is not very smooth or well crafted. Pours with a white head and color is yellow and clear. Overall decent for the price but prefer the amber and german.

Pours pale golden with little head, aroma is spruce citrus and pretty good. The flavor is a decent Pale ale, some malt but the hops also come through.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 12 oz bottle into Grolsch lager glass. Smells like Sugar, cheap grain. Pours deep golden with a medium head and excellent lacing. Taste is just slightly piney; starts sour, ends bitter. Itís more grainy. Medium carbonation. Overall, a very grainy pale ale. Iíve had worse, but Iíve had better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is by far the best beer in the case. Orange-yellow color with a white head on it. Smell shows some signs of hops, a little yeast, some malts. Taste is smooth, sort of bitter, little bit of grass and straw. Not a bad beer, this is something I could drink whenever. If they sold this by the case I would buy it.

Thanks to John for the bottle. Poured clear lighter orange with a short, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and lesser bready notes with fresh floral backing.. simple and well-balanced. The flavor found sweet pale malts and a touch of honey at the core.. moderate floral and peppery bitterness around.. spicy and refreshing on the finish. Lighter-bodied and crisp on the palate.. very easy-drinkiní with no complaints from me.
