T: sweet caramel, buiscuit, over taken by distinctive simcoe hop flavor. Outstanding.
M&d: light to medium bodied , light carbonation. Good drinkability, not drying.

This was on clearance....spring beer on sale at the end of summer, so maybe ratings could be a few points higher if fresh. Sort of a pale ale-copper ale hybrid. Light gold to copper appearance. Flavor of light caramel malt, slight citrus, and decent hop balance. I’ve seen similar harvest ales that come out in fall.

Very dry. Bitter with grapefruit zest, an earthy and woody quality. Dry bitter citrus, classic Simcoe hops through the finish.

Peak Organic Simcoe Spring Ale is a nice well-balanced pale good for any occasion. Bright amber pour with a fluffy white head. Moderate floral aroma. Taste is an enjoyable mix of pine, florals and fruity notes with none of these overpowering the other -- just a nice blend. Simcoe Spring Ale is a nice quaff for Spring, Summer or anytime!

Draught @ Albion. Slightly cloudy dark orange with small foamy off-white head, light grassy hops aroma, low carbonation, yeasty taste with moderately piney hops flavor, medium finish. Leaves much to imagination I’m afraid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Earthy citrusy aroma with slight diacetyl. Bready malts
Pours a hazy golden color with small disappearing white head
Earthy, floral hops with citrus notes, bready biscuity malts.
Medium bodied with medium CO2, lingering hopiness.
Enjoyable pale ale. Similar to their original pale ale. I'm not sure which I like better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold. No head aroma is pineor ward, a little tropical fruit thin taste. Finish is thin, simcoe is tasty but not a lot going on. It’s a good thing I like this hope variety.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is bright flowers, pine and honey. Nice.
The taste has dry bitterness throughout, a touch of sweetness in the middle.
The texture is crisp.
Great aroma and a good flavor.
