Poured gold with a big, foamy head. Floral aroma. Taste is lemon rind and grass. A little lacking on the mid-palate, but a decent pale ale.

Very disappointing. Iíve had 2 bottles purchased from different stores and both had the similar bland taste of a weak pale ale. Couldnít tell the age of the bottles as I couldnít find any dating information on them. Although the ale is not of a drain pour status, I canít find any reason to purchase it again. If nothing else, I do like the label design - simple and straight forward.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a large frothy off-white head that took for ever to settle. Head like this makes me hope thereís not an infection. The nose seems OK though, some light citrusy hops over a slightly sweet and toasty caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty unexciting, lightly bitter citrusy hops with a toasty malt base. A little sweetness, but itís pretty well kept in check. Finishes with some minimal bitterness and some husky grain. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. About what Iíve come to expect for the style, rather bland and boring.

boxofrane (2120) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Draft at the tower. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma is on the floral side with light pine. The taste is medium bitter, light citrus.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow gold color with small frothy white head. Aroma of piney and grapefruit hops, with a malt background of musty and slightly damp dried grains. Taste brings a crisp clean and semi-bitter bite of the hop notes - floral, pine and grapefruit, all backed by a slightly musty malted grain presence. Lighter side of medium bodied, slightly over carbonated.

12oz bottle, easy to drink hop flavored brew. I thought it was an IPA, balanced, good flavors, true apa style.

Beerathon (1171) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Easy drinking pale that satisfied the hop head in me. Nice crisp malt bill with piney hops (although a bit of a soapy finish).

Pretty standard pale ale. Dark amber color small,thin,white head. Aroma is very hoppy and earthy. Good hop flavors and a touch of malt.

callmemickey (2791) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Amber body, thin white head, spotty lacing. Light grapefruit and floral notes, soft pale malts. Medium to light bodied, gentle carbonation, light bitterness. Simple, but pleasant.

Goudblond, minimale witte kraag. Aroma van grond, naaldboom, citrus en hop. Smaak is lichtbitter. Weinig body, waterig. Matig...
