On tap at John bonnet Tavern, clear golden color, not much head or lacing, lots of grape notes and very light and refreshing, like a hopped Pilsner

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was surprisingly hoppy for what this beer is, nice notes of fruity citrus hops. Flavor was a little let down compared to the aroma. Flavor was mlid fruitiness, a nice blance of malt, but not too sweet and then a surprisingly lingering small bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this one at the ratebeer Pittsburgh gathering. Poured a dark yellow with a decent white head. Aroma was very crisp, lemony citrusy hoppy..yeah all of those are related. Still good. Taste is subdued, but this is to be expected from this style. Very clean and refreshing. Mouth is medium in both body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a growler at a ratebeer gathering this beer poured a hazy yellow-golden color with a small white head. The aroma was light with fruity and floral hops and had a faint nutty undertone. The flavor was sour, tart and nutty with a lightly fruity hop presence and a touch of caramel. The finish was medium length sour nut. Decent.

Tap, sample glass (4/08). Cloudy golden color. Hoppy bite in the aroma, spicey, with honeydew and some grapefruit. Citrus, and honey on the tongue, light light sweet aftertaste of buttery satisfaction (toffee?). Overall decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Allison Park. I was able to try this one fresh before it was put online. This have a very nice citrusy melon aroma. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a white head. Medium bodied with a nice refreshing texture, and somewhat soft carbonation. The malt profile is of light toffee, wet grains, and honey with a flavorful but non-aggressive citrusy bitterness. Slight acidity on the finish. This is an interesting take on the style and is very enjoyable. If there is such thing as a lawnmower APA, this would be it. Best beer of the night.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 Recently had this too, at the RBtasting 2009. On tap at the Marzoni’s in Allison Park near Pittsburgh. Very nice beery aroma, sweet without the hint of alky strongness. Ubiquitous pale yellow color and appearance. Swirling carbonation visible within. Has a very slight haze. Friendly and light on the taste buds after the session begins but during the commencement I thought I had an inkilng of bitterness on the palate. Below avrage carbonation. Good finish, well mannered and not offensive in the least. Not bad Marzoni! Nice session brew even tho it is above 5%, you’d never know it.

Growler, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a hazy, golden-yellow color with an orange tinge; thin off-white head with patchy fine-bubbled lacing. Very sticky, wet citrus and floral hops in the aroma; some honey. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: slightly relaxed carbonation; chewy, zesty citrus hops at the front of things; a lively acidity that helps the lightened carbonation from the growler; pleasant yeastiness and some honey at the core; pretty tasty, lively american pale ale. Medium finish, showing wet malts, honey, and breadiness; a touch of lingering citrus.
