3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home in Salisbury. Pours clear gold with a sturdy, off-white foam head. Some orangey citrus in the aroma, a bit of lightly toasted, bready malts. Light sweet flavor, some metallic bite, vaguely doughy malts, orange, dry pine needles. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderate bitterness to finish, some lightly earthy grass, bread. It’s alright overall, though not especially cohesive.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a golden color and leaves the same color body. With a one inch foamy white head, there is a nice spider webbed lacing speckling the pint glass. Some light carbonation is seen slowly rising. The smell has a good combination between the malts and the hops. The taste is even between the malts and hops. I would say this is very drinkable. The palate is about a light to medium with a good crispness lingering about it. There is nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is a decent brew, standard and solid, but for the price, I’m not sure if I would have come back to it.

Can courtesy of AirForceHops. Sweet pineapple, pink grapefruit, tangerine, and honey malt aroma. Hazy honey gold with a large white head. Orange peel and grassy hops, slightly astringent, and light fruity caramel malt flavor. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taken from my BA account, reviewed 3/4/12
Massive can into .75L stein thanks to caguiar (Thanks Chris!!)
Appearance; pours a slightly hazy orange copper color, with three fingers of straw colored head... Retention is good, taking several minutes to fall, and lacing is outstanding.
Smell; Peaches, honey and hints of grapefruit
Taste; quite similar to the smell with a bit of a bready quality to balance everything out, just a slight amount of bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel; on the full side of light bodied, with mellow carbonation, goes down fairly smooth, this is a very easy drinkin beer...
Overall; this is an exceptionally easy drinkin beer, i can definitely envision myself drinking this one all day at a party or some similar event, and the low ABV makes it a perfect candidate for doing so. Absolutely would seek this one out again!!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2012.09.28 - 24oz can in pint glass. Pours textbook gold, vigorous head, leaves sticky lacing on first pour. Aroma is mild, taste is mildly hoppy. Meh, it's a pale ale. OK, would drink again, but nothing special to me (as someone who is indifferent to pale ales in general).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to my buddy Chadwell! Dirty dark orange pour, 1/2 inch head and some light hops & bitter orange aroma. Flavor is a nice meld of caramel, almonds, some slightly sweet herbal hops and finished rich and malty. I’d definitely pick this up if it ever made it to MN.
