12 oz. can courtesy of queenholly. Hazy amber / gold color with thin white head. Nose is pine resin with some bread malt hiding underneath. The flavor is pine and weak citrus hops with bland malt. Backbone of the beer is toasted grain / corn. Light resin finish.

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a small head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt is somewhat weak. Taste is dominated by some light caramel malt with no discernable hops presence. Full body with some medium to low carbonation. I guess this one is OK but nothing truly extraordinary.

jgb9348 (5430) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Copper colour with orange highlights and an off-white head. Nice aroma of hops, malt and even some nutmeg. Medium-bodied; Strong medicinal taste initially, followed by some malt and stale hops. Aftertaste has more astringent taste and a sort of hoppy ending. Overall, a good beer...needs some work though! I owe a large thanks to Mabdoney for this one...cheers Matt! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle on 02-November-2003.

ben4321 (5358) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Charleston Beer Works, 12/8/12

Aroma:†The nose has lots of sweet malts, some caramel, fruity notes, yeast, and toffee
Appearance:†This one pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color, with a foam laced off-white head
Flavor:†The taste is pretty sweet, with some fruity notes, and a slightly metallic bitterness
Palate:†This beer has a medium body, with a soft carbonation, and a lengthy, off, metallic finish
Overall Impression:† Overall, this one was not a favorite for me. It is missing any of the wanted citrus or resiny hop bitterness that one might enjoy in this style. Also, it just doesnít come off clean at all, and the metallic feel takes away from the enjoyment. I didnít hate it, but it was a mediocre at best example of the style for me.

Bottle, itís just your typical malty hopless pale ale with a dry bittering finish. Falls into the sea of mediocracy.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Draught. Clear coppery gold with small off-white head cap. Balanced, straightforward slightly metallic earthy aroma. Crisp refreshing nice hop kiss at finish. Good mouthfeel.

burg326 (5199) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a light orangish color with aromas of light fruit, some caramel and slme biscuit. Flavors are the same light fruit and citrus linger on the palate a decent pale ale overall.

jkwood04 (5165) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 16, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, dough and cereal, and pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pale ale, but not the best.

ClarkVV (5129) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2004
2004 bottle @ the gathering. Deep yellow-gold, mostly clear, small white head. Aroma of metal, hay, floral hops, sour yeast. Flavor is metallic and hoppy, very flowery and bitter, with no malt to speak of and then a watery death for the finish. Medium-light body, over-carbonated. Canít find much use in drinking this.

travita (4715) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2008
On tap in South Carolina. Amberish in color with a decent beige head. Taste has a crisp hop character. Decent pale ale. Light hoppy smell with a good balance of some malts.
