brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap @ Pi Pizzeria. Clear orange colored beer with a tall white head. Aroma is big on pale malt, bread, and toast. Some caramel, a light orange hop aroma, flowers, and grass. Subtle pine. Flavor is malt forward and sweet. Lots of caramel, toast, and biscuit. Good floral hops, some orange peel, and mild bitterness. A bit of an estery quality on the finish. Mildly grassy.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Tap @ Pi STL. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a creamy, khaki head. Somewhat spicy, sweet toasted cracker, light citrus, a bit grainy aroma. Dried orange, somewhat fruity but dry flavor with a very nice toasted husky taste. Nice stuff and worth seeking out.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Draft pint at Pi on Delmar. Pours a mostly clear orange-gold color, a little too dull and browned to be called amber, with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toast, husk, nuts, and just a bit of earthy, floral hops. Flavor of toasty caramel malts, nuts, earthy hops, bread, yeast, and a little tangerine citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Nice take on a style I haven’t really tried much, save for Anchor Steam. I liked this one a bit better, though.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
On tap at Pi in Dc. Served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a moderate golden color with a good white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries some light grain and perhaps a touch of fruit. Flavor is likewise pretty tame without very much going on. Light-medium body with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish, though the body is just a bit chewy. Average.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pint at Bottleworks. Clear and coppery with an off white head that leaves some lacing. This is nicely hopped with European hops. Some spiciness. Also floral and fruit. The hop notes ste mot huge but sre nicely complex. Malts are well balanced. Some biscuits. This is well hopped for the style and I approve.

radagast83 (4655) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Tap at Churchkey - nonic pint glass. Poured a slightly creamy golden color with a thick white head. Aroma was crisp fruits, grain notes were very present in this one. Pretty refreshing - fruit notes, some grain.

vyvvy (3999) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours copper / brown with a small off-white head. The aroma has toasty malt, dry caramel and an overall smoothness. Medium body with mild carbonation. The taste is quite dry, bready and crackery with toasted malt, light spicy hops and some minerals. The finish has more spicy hops and there is a lager like smoothness to the malt. Nothing fancy, but a pretty nice beer.
