12oz bottle. I’ve had this previously on tap at the Pub on Passyunk East. Pours pale golden, with a medium sized ivory head. Aroma of grain, lemon, grass, and earthy hops. Wheat and grain hit the palate first, Which are then joined by hops (amarillo, I think) and hay. Long, moderately bitter finish. Nice summertime beer.

12oz bottle-pours a rich white head that laces and gold color with lots of effervescence. Aroma is lemon, grain. Taste is lemon/spicy hops (Amarillo and Continental) up front with some bite, secondary grain/light malt-sweet/husky. Enjoyed the first half more than the second half, but a very nice beer. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for picking this out.

Had on draft. Poured a clear, golden color. Aroma was grassy with faint sweet grain smell. Taste of herbal hops and a decent malt backbone.

Very drinkable, Philadelphia Brewing Company makes good beer at affordable prices, golden clear, large white head, a bit heavier than a typical "session," crisp and thirst quenching, hint of raspberry somewhere over a light hay malt. Surprising, good for the hot Philly summer

raymow (1396) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2008
bottled - Very good, highly drinkable beer. A bit hoppier than I expected (but definitely in a good way). I’ll be drinking this one again (of course it doesn’t hurt that it’s also nostalgic since I grew up in Kensington).

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy golden/yellow with a medium foamy/bubbly head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of hay, horse barn (but not in a funky lambic way), grainy bread, malty with a touch of some citrus. Flavor of cereal grains, grassy, hay, lightly floral and citrus notes. Some hop bitterness and flavor that lingers around. For some weird reason I was getting blueberry pie out of the flavor. No clue why.
