750 c&c from Wine & Cheese. Pours hazy orange gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is sort of lightly oxidized floral. A bit woody. Med body. Flavor is a rather biting hop. There is a woody/oxidized note, but it seems to work well with the spicy/biting hop. There’s a lot of flavor here. Pretty dry, and nicely bitter.

The beer smells a little old but still looks nice. A lot of flavor for a lower alcohol beer. A tad bit of old staleness to the flavor but still nice. Definitely need to try it fresher.

Leafs93 (2069) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours gold with a small white soapy head. Aroma is grass, earthy, pears and floral. Taste is sweet with a light hoppy bite. Soft carbonation leads to a very soft mouth feel, very smooth. Overall a very nice and refreshing golden ale.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle from wegmans. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is sweet mango, orange, a bit of booze despite low abv. The taste is sweet fruit, big grapefruit and orange from the hops, a bit cloying but not bad.

Shared from a big corked bottle into schooner glasses. It poured a medium orange amber colour with sudsy beige foam, lasting with lots of fine Belgian lace. The Le-Brewery brewmaster was trained in England, equipped with an estery historic Northern English ale yeast, and now crafts his beautiful brews in Normany, France. Malty, biscuity, very nutty, caramelly, with hints of toffee, dried apricots, black plums and cherries, currants, citrus zest. Overall, it reminded me a bit of a familiar Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, except a bit sweeter, with a more complex presentation like a Belgian Dubbel, and open-fermented in Yorkshire stone squares. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, lingering multi-layered aftertastes. Well-crafted, delicious and refreshing.

kramer (5770) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body under a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is slightly sweet with bready and light caramel malt. Just a little bit of fruitiness and light hops. The flavor is on the sweeter side, caramel and bready malt, light yeast influence. A little bland and boring overall, but I suppose that’s the style more than anything. Mouthfeel is a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Not the best beer, but no problems finishing a bottle.

ruigo (2128) - PORTUGAL - AUG 22, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours a light hazy golden colour with a persistent lacing. Aroma is malty, choppy and light orange. Medium carbonation. Flavour is fruity, sour and bitter. A nice combination.

thornecb (5404) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Sweet caramel and euro hops aromas. Soft and thin with sweet sourdough and mile nutty grass upfront turning to dry earthy hops in the lasting finish.
