HonkeyBra (3358) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Bright, golden pour with a big white head. Aroma of mild flowers, caramel malt, some fruit, Flavor is fresh and clean, hoppy, delicious. This is quite believably a 30 year old recipe. And, more importantly, I can imagine buying this beer and having my mind blown. This is an excellent pale ale still. Light bodied, super heavy carbonation. Very carbonated. Finishes fruity and bitter.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours clear and a golden-yellow color, lighter than most American pale ales. Has a distinct hoppy-lemony aroma thatís begging to be tasted. This is a delicious beer! Itís not an American pale ale by any means. Thereís never a hop punch, and itís got a much more muted flavor, almost like a sharp pilsner. Thereís no caramelly sweetness thatís common in many pale ales, so you may not like it as much if thatís what youíre looking for. Itís got a robust flavor with a clean mouthfeel. This may perhaps

rocbyter (1896) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Light malt and grain aroma. Clear light golden color with a small white head. Mild sweet and a little bitter in the beginning with a slightly stronger bitter finish.

ADesenberg (586) - Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle: pours a nice clear yellow with just a tiny coppery hint to the color. It has a nice foamy off white head on it. Aroma... cereal. Some faint hop floweriness if I start to look for it. The flavor is where this one shines. I wouldnít call it exciting, but itís nice, clean and crisp. It drinks very easily and I could see how in its time this was a revolutionary beer, and for that it gets bonus points. Itís got a nice hop bitterness, without being offensive or shocking. Nice.

Sammer (1031) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Taste is lemon peel, grass, hay and grain. Decent, but nothing to write home about.

NJBeerman013 (1047) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours warm golden in color with an ample white head. Aroma notes heavy of grass, cereal grain, and light citrus. Very piney hops up front, light citrus zing, and smooth rich malts form a nice body. Clean and clear finish.
