nice session beer. pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. metallic nose of lemongrass (not crazy about the aroma...) but the taste is a well-balanced mix of hoppy and malty characteristics, with butterscotch and spicy hops coming to the foreground. finish is long and bitter, slightly astringent. mouthfeel is initially buttery but dries out as the hops flavor comes out.

Drank at The Continental Midtown in Philly. I was suprised how well it went with all my food. It wasnt anything mind blowing, but had just the right touch of hoppy bitterness and sweet citrus tang that refreshed my palate.

12oz bottle from some good folks at Swarthmore College - thanks, Steve! Hazy straw colored pour, with a modest head, not much retention. Aroma is fairly anonymous, a slightly fragrant yeast tang. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, some hops in the taste, but I do appreciate the dry finish.

A lovely Kolsh style ale.Good balance and easy to drink. Just a well made thirst quencher. A perfect stepping stone for your friends who drink macro rice beer.

So far, I’m not really impressed with much from Philly Brewing Co. And this offering falls short of impressive, as well. This blond ale pours a bright and clear golden color with a decent-sized white head. The head leaves a nice amount of lacing around the glass. The nose features some grassy and citrus notes, but the flavors are otherwise bland. There isn’t really much to write home about with this beer. The flavors and body really left a lot to be desired with this one.

Pale straw colour. Aroma is of lemon/orange citrus. A touch of straw. Quite sickly sweet with an overabundance of sweet orange peel and maybe even some coriander. Bleh… truly awful.

THOUGHTS: A really nice session beer. A truly unique flavor too. Not my favorite types of flavors, but very memorable and distinct. I will probably get this again, but probably in the warmer months. Should make a great summer refresher. Fairly British. I would have guessed by the name it would be more German. It tasted better on the cold side. Not a sipper. Drink it before it gets too warm. My bottle said 4.5% ABV. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a cloudy, dark yellow with a small, white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was light to moderate straw and toasted malt, moderate floral and perfume hops, lighter grassy hops, light to moderate earthy yeast, tea and a little citrus. The initial flavor was acidic and slightly sweet, while the finish was acidic, sour and slightly bitter with and average duration. There was mostly citrus and yeast, along with a little toasted malt and some hops in the finish and a little tea also. The light to medium body was slightly creamy with fizzy carbonation.

tap at Silk City- for some reason, the last time I had this beer, it was soooo good and refreshing. I don’t understand how it became so good, but it did. It is the usual, cheap craftbeer, that should replace yueng at everybar in philly. pours golden clear, nose is strong hoppy character, some pine, some light spicy citrus notes, some breadyness. taste is quite a rounded hoppy flavour that is worth every penny of $2.00, It is a gold standard for session ales.
