4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2012-08-18. crisp orange body with a nice beige head and lace. 3+ Fruity citrusy hops, nice bitterness, very light leafy hop character. 7+ Hoppy citrusy lightly leafy character grows as it goes on. Average plus bodied palate works for it. 3+ Pretty decent, hoppy enough to be an IPA really. On tap, Old Forge brewpub
