3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can
Hiding in the back of the fridge after a week in Pennsylvania I thought this would be a good one to crack open fresh. A solid lawnmower beer is worth drinking once but doesn’t make me want to seek out any more of their releases. One is enough for now.
Aroma / Appearance - The bubbly heavy white head and transparent orange base combine well. Grass, oranges, and other aromas make it smell like a fresh cut lawn. The nose is a boozy orange slice.
Flavor / Palate - Light pine, grass, and then a weedy transition to a floral finish refresh the palate. The residual aftertaste hangs for a few minutes but is short lived. In fact it tastes a bit like alcoholic Sprite with a minor tartness.

Draft at Old Forge. Poured golden with thin head and a lot of lacing. Super fresh. I’ve had this before and never as impressed as I was today. Pine, grass resin, and little caramel malt. Tasty

Big Top, Roslyn 160z from variety pack: Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus, resin, pine. Taste is rather hoppy and bitter throughout. There might not be enough malt backbone. Lingering aftertaste. Still, it ain’t bad.

This is now my second favorite pale ale next to headwaters and without a doubt the best beer I’ve ever had out of a 16 oz. can. It’s got a medium body and well balanced malt profile, slightly toward the hoppy side with a pleasant citrus flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ever so slightly hazy golden copper coloured body with a hint of orange coming through and a soapy, large, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of grassy, herbal hops, a light citrus note with a definite metallic scent and a nice airy lighter note with some yeast noticeable. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic hops at first with a thinnish citrus and grassy note with not much malt at all and no sweetness on the tail end. Aftertaste still bitter from the metallic and grassy hops with a very pungent herbal note and a little citrus at the tail end. Overall, a nice hoppy water styled beer with a bit of a light body at the end, but a nice, very light and very pungently hopped beer - drink this if you want a lot of hops in the summertime. I sampled this sixteen ounce can, purchased from Wegman’s in Malvern, Pennsylvania on 22-September-2012 US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 29-September-2012.

From tap. A cloudy yellow, orange beer with a nice white head. Aroma is fresh of hops and some maltiness. Taste is a balanced with a great hop profile and a nice malt bill. A solid session pale ale. Nothing more, nothing less.
