Ericular (739) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours golden with lasting white head and decent lacing. Aroma is bread, hay and corn. Taste is sweet and corn with much less hops than expected. With the lack of hops and corn vibe, this reminds me too much of a Miller Lite with slightly more substance.

Bottle into glass. Appearance- Looks like a pale, head is there but doesn’t last forever. Aroma- biscuit, citrus with subtle floral/herb. Taste- much like the nose with a bit more orange citrus and mild spicy earthy hops. Palate- medium to light body with some bitterness and very clean. This pale is subtle but complex. The style is more of a balanced old/new world style. My favorite part is that it isn’t pushing the boundary of IPA and Pale. Aromatic and clean like a pale should be.

jcnielsen (2443) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared at Exira Beer Summit 2012. Thanks to bnielsen13 for sharing. Pours a golden color with big white head. Very foamy. Malty sweet, biscuit, almost corn aroma. Malty, bitter, bready flavor, not a lot of hops. Overcarbonated, and mouthfeel is tingly as a result. Not very good pale ale.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit III. Thanks to bnielsen13! Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a big white head. Herbal, veggie, corn, a bit tangy aroma. Tangy, chewy herbal, corny flavor. Not good.

piscator34 (2047) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of soapy citrus fruit, pear, and a bit of bready/toasty malts. Flavors are of white grapefruit, caramel, earth, weeds, and white pepper. Medium to light bodied with a firm earthy bitterness. A fairly standard, if somewhat rustic, APA. Solid.

theisti (3404) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 6, 2012
22 oz bomber purchased at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is hazed yellow golden with a one inch white head that falls with decent lacing. The aroma is floral, bread, hay, along with sweet malt. The taste is the bready hay and sweet malt, floral herbal hops behind that. The palate is light to medium bodied, low rough carbonation, and a bit of dirtiness in the finish.

Bottle: Pour is weird copperish colour fading to gold in the edges. Soapy white head. aroma is bready caramel and honey, fruity hop. Flavour is light bready, thin bodied, little herbal hop presence.

nbutler11 (1267) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2012
Bonus bottle from kbutler1 - thanks! Pours amber with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of lemon zest, crackers, and pale malt. Nice summer beer.
