3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Served a cloudy golden-orange color with a half-finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel and light biscuit malts with some citrus and grapefruit hops.
T - Starts off with some citrus and grapefruit hops with some caramel and light biscuit malts. Through the middle, some more biscuity malts come through with a bit of bitterness. The finish is a mix of grapefruit hops with some sweet biscuit and caramel malts.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really nice biscuity malt profile with enough hops to balance. Very sessionable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at RR. Pour was a light orange and amber with a light white head and lighter retention. Lots of hops mainly, tons of citrus and floral. Light malt and spice. Bitter? More like hoppy as hell pale ale. Light English influence with the floral bright hoppy flavor and light malt body. Big citrus and light hop bitterness carried this. Light body, a bit thin, mild carbonation. Did not get much English out of this but this was very drinkable and very refreshing. Reviewed on: 08-17-2010

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Russian River. Pours a chill hazed orange with a small, white head. No lace. Starfruit, watermelon candies, strawberry candies, something else sweet medicinal in the nose. Taste is neutral, a bit suddy, mildly bitter. Clean and very neutral to near bland. In a way it tastes like flavored tangerine seltzer water.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ RR. Hazy, honey pour with a short white head with good retention and heavy lace. Nose is light malt. Light body and moderate carbonation. Light toast, biscuit, citrus hops and almonds. Finish is short, dry and leaves you wanting another sip. A bit drier than many English bitters, but very good. I’d have no problem drinking this the whole evening.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery. Aroma of malts and some hops...not really much though. Appearance is a light tan with off white head. Taste is very understated and fairly bland. Not much going on with this, although it is still a decent beer, it is my least favorite from RR.
