Pour is a hazy copper color with a white head. Aroma is slight pine with a juicy citrus. Some orange, almost tangerine with a hint of grapefruit. Taste is more citrus orange and slight grapefruit. Not too bitter at all, nice and crisp with a slightly lingering finish. Body isn’t too light for 5.6%

Pours a hazy golden brown with a whit foamy head. Aroma of orange and citrus fruit. Taste starts slightly caramel then dries up with a bitter offset. It never gets truly bitter. It remains balanced throughout. Very smooth with a clean finish.

It’s got a but of lager "skunk" to the aroma and that sneaks into the taste a good bit as well (see the likely reason below). Overall, it doesn’t suck, but it’s not exactly good (again, below). I can tell this has some nice hop and malt character and it’s actually well-balanced for what it is. That skunk, thankfully, isn’t highly-prominent, so I can enjoy it at least.
This is a beer that I likely wouldn’t try as I’m not the biggest New Holland fan, but Mainstreet Liquors in Countryside, IL had it on sale for $4 for a 4 pack, so I decided "well, it may not be super-fresh, but let’s give it a try anyway for that price!" I picked the one that was furthest from the blazing sun at the front of the store....really great place to put beer, but that’s why it’s on clearance, right? Overall, worth the $1 a bottle experiment.

12 oz. bottle bright back from Eric’s Michigan trip. Thanks bud. Dirty copper color with thin head. Aroma is earthy and herbal. The flavor seems light dirty earthy hops with low bitterness that finishes abruptly. Light floral and old lady perfume notes. Medium body that leans on light. I tried to like this, the bottle was rather fresh. The herbal and floral notes just didn’t work for me.

On tap at Dexters, pours a clear gold with a thin white head, aroma has a small touch of citrus and tropical fruit, subtle but nice, flavor is light citrus hops with a smooth finish, just kind of boring and one note

Bottle. Pours amber with a small off white head. Citrus aroma. Classic pale ale bitter citrus flavor. Very crisp. Big bitter mouth feel. Plenty of drinkability, but nothing to get me excited about. Not a huge PA fan so nothing against this beer in particular. Nothing offensive.

bottle. some fine suspended sediment in a orange beer under a small, frothy, white head. candied fruit aroma. some nice robust pale malt adds sweetness and character to the malt flavors with a fruity/floral hops. lightly sweet but somehow has a mostly dry finish. medium body.

2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color and appearance is nice, golden honey color with some cloudiness. Almost no aroma which was a bit strange. A touch of caramel, a touch of hops in flavor. Decent but not my fav on this 3rd coast tour.
