3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap in a New Belgium chalice. Chocolate brown color with a thin white head. Green coffee bean aroma. Taste is roasty and slightly sweet caramel malt with a big citrus hop presence. Lemon and like perfume fill the mouth. Medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy. This isn't a golden but they've got it labeled as Hoptober and it's surprisingly good.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Medium carbonation, dark gold/copper, some lacing. Aroma is nutty/grainy . Flavor, initial malt with medium hoppiness lingering at the end. The mix of flavors is too competative in this beer. If it leaned more in one direction or the other it would improve. Medium body. Nothing to write home about.

On tap at Kelly's. Very interesting aroma-very fall-y. Leaves, faint campfire, roasted nuts. Whatever that hop is, it's peculiar and good for this beer. Nutty malty.

On first pouring this one, the drinker is bombarded with grapfruit, citrus, and piney aromas. The golden, slightly cloudy ale drinks with a mildly thick mouthfeel tasting of oats and wheat. The finish is medium heavy witch continues to tease the drinker into another full swallow. I love this one.

Creamy and fruity. Hints of orange and lemon. Very smooth to drink and not overly hoppy.

Light yeasty aroma with hints of citrus and fruit. Respectable long-lasting white head with excellent lacing. Pours a clear gold with light carbonation. Light but surprisingly creamy body with a very smooth finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally reviewed: 8/24/09. Nice to see another NB brew on the shelves here. Pours a light gold with a big frothy white head on top. Great retention and it leaves some nice lacing on the glass edge. Smells like oranges, lemons, and candy.
The mouth is crisp and clean. Plenty of carbonation on this one. The taste is interesting. Pretty citrusy and hoppy. This is like a tamed down IPA. This is not bad. Itís not your typical "October" beer, but itís good. Refreshing and tasty.
