Pale amber appearance. Good clarity. Lemony, zesty smell. Strong head that quickly dissipates. Tastes maltier than the aroma suggests. Hints of brown sugar. Not particularly hop-driven taste. Mouth feel is a bit flat.

It was ok. The flavor was a little too strong-not too malty, not too hoppy...just not good. Attempted to balance level of hops and malt, but failed ot balance flavor. Both are a little too overpowering. Highly carbonated .Can only drink 2 before stomach hurts.

A pretty good fruity ale. Coppery in color and a good standbay, but nothing too wowing.

Great burnt orange on the pour. The head dropped quickly and left a faint coat skimming the top. The smell was tough for me to nail...it was so faint. I think I picked up some caramel though. The taste was full but very smooth. A very tasty beer to be sure.

bottle. copper color with head that quickly goes away. Very balanced taste with good flavor. Had half this beer and then took a sip of my girlfriends Boddingtons and this beer made the Boddingtons seem dull, lame, and flavorless. Bitter aftertaste that i LOVE. i will continue to drink this beer. Cool label too.

Bomber. Pour orange copper, hazy with a dissapering head. Aromas of malts and caramel. Taste malty, fruity . Bitter but not overwhelming dry finish.

Darkish amber head with a little lacing and some decentish retention. Nose is chocolaty malts with hop finish—taste is much the same. Caramel and chocolate malts with hop finish, but malts are a little more prominent than hops. Very drinkable. Overall though a very balanced brew that is really, really tasty. Big time recommendation. Bought this in a half gallon jug, by the way, which only adds to its appeal.

Aroma: Hops, citrus, malts. Appearance: Hazy amber appearance. Taste: Nice balance of hop and malt. Strong, citrus, fruity hops took me first then the malts came over with some malty, caramel goodness. Fairly sweet, mild bitterness. Great sessionable quaffer. I really enjoyed this.
