Draft at Fynske Øldage. Clear amber coloured with an off white head. Aroma of fruits, hops and pine needles. Flavour of fruits, hops and pine needles. A bit watery. I prefer thhe bottled edition.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Draft @ Fynske Øldage. Light hoppy nose, with some grassy notes. Copper colored body with a small white head. Light bitterness in the flavor, grassy notes, way weaker than the bottle version IMO.

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Pours a copper color with very little head but decent lacing. Floral hoppy aroma with some notes of pine and citrus. Well balanced flavor has nice hops bitterness and an oak character. Slightly sweet malts leaves a light taste of caramel. Medium body and finishes dry with lingering floral hops on the palate. Goes great with most types of American food.

awebster (165) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Good, drinkable beer. Good body, nose and dry finish. Good quality beer. There’s an appetizing bitterness to the beer, it’s good to have before a meal.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Wow! I can’t believe the differance a little bottle conditioning does. This beer is really weak and watery compared to the bottled version. A very mediocre American Pale.

Good beer. Hoppy, with some fruity nuances. An good pale ale, in the class of Sam Adams and Saranac PA. Very tasty and easy to drink, if you like this type of beer.

Sierra is a very refreshing but not wholly aromatic with medium body and hoppiness.

MrBrewski (42) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2005
draft (of course) Pours amber with a medium white head with good lacing, pick up scents of white bread and a light hop. First taste is a medium hop APA with a touch of citrus (orange) balanced by a slight malt sweetness. Clean finish hoppy yet sweet. Very refreshing and a goood example of an APA.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [draft at MacGregor’s - Rochester, NY] And I thought this stuff was only good out of the bottle. Nice golden color with a white head. Very floral and full hoppy aroma with hints of pepper and some sweetness. Rather sweet flavor at the beginning with a nice grainy and hoppy middle and a very nice peppery and floral hop finish. Quite tasty and refreshing.
