3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer is almost amber in color with a white head. Mild grass aroma followed by citrus peel and floral hops. A strong toffee and toasted bread smell to it as well. Just decent on the nose, sort of bland. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but still a bit bland. Light hop flavors of citrus peel, grass and pine. A light bitterness on the finish.

Strong citrus notes in the aroma with a hint of grapefruit dominating the initial nose. Medium body with decent color. Would prefer more hops in this style. Very nice name!

Not too bad. I liked it. Overall it was decent but from others who talked it up I expected more. I was tipsy by the time I had it but it was really just so so.

On cask at Rubicon. I’ve had this before, just never rated... Nice head with lots of lacing. Aroma is really orangey like its got lots of citrus hops. Very low Carbonation, not really all that bitter, but it is a pale ale. This is a really good beer I order when I know its on tap somewhere...
