BeerInHeaven (235) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2013
I’ve drank this many times, can’t believe I hadn’t rated it yet. Pours a rich deep gold with a thick frothy head. Nice persistence and lacing. Aroma is citrus and hoppy. Tastes crisp, hoppy and biting. Nice finish with long nasal linger. One of my favs!

zymurgirl (1) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015 does not count
Bright orange colour, watery head is quick to disappear, vigorous carbonation. Aroma of floral orange with oaky notes. The flavour is tangy, dry and slightly spicy. Very refreshing and a solid example of its style.

tectactoe (3071) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle: Brilliant golden body with darker amber highlights. Hefty white head forms on top & simmers down slowly, decent lacing. Nose loaded with American hop aromas; leafy, earthy, lightly spicy, with a bit of citrus rind underneath. Small twinge of toasted cracker malts, baked bread, & yeast. Flavors of white peppery & ashy hop leaves, earthy floral notes, very light perfume, grapefruit rind, toasted grains, bread, biscuits, & a very small hint of sulfur near the finish. Relatively clean, medium-thin bodied, crisp. While there are many other beers I’d choose over this, it’s still a benchmark of the original style.

Aroma of grapefruit and herbs and spices. Tastes of citrus, biscuit, sweet fruit and wild flowers. Balanced. An old classic finally makes it to Ontario.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a light amber with a thick head. The aroma is some hops and bread. The taste is malt, bready, caramel, and hops. The mouth feel is full and creamy. It’s a solid beer and pairs well with pub food.
