12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Dark orange hue, normal clarity with almost fully diminishing off-white head. No lacing. Aroma was very dull, watery, light fruit (grape). Sweet light fruit taste up front with more of a light spice finish.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss 26th anniversary snifter glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Purchased: July 18, 2015
Consumed: July 18, 2015
Poured a honey, caramel, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white rocky head, which thinned out rather quickly. A few bubble streams coming up from the bottom along the sides. Poor lacing on the sides. Below average-to-poor retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Smelled honey, caramel, sour fruit, pear, apple and earthy notes, ending with sharp peppery cloves. (Smell - 4.13)
Taste pretty much follows the nose, although not as good. Got pear, apple peel, light apple juice, caramel, sour or slightly spoiled fruit, honey, pepper and candied cloves. (Taste - 3.75)
Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.38)
This was only my third kind of this style, so I’m not going to compare. This beer had its moments, but something just didn’t work out as soon as it hit my lips. Great value for $3.99 a 6-pack though. (Overall - 3.75)

Nice light spring beer. Not foamy and a light malty gold color. Good bridge beer between an Irish ale and a wit.

Drank from a sampler glass at the Electric City Craft Brew Fest! Pours a hazy amber color, with little head. Slightly sweet aromas. A decent beer, I was hoping for more by South Hampton... The girl service was cute and knowledgable tho!

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Deep reddish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, cherry, and light citrus. Taste is not overly sweet but certainly malt forward with caramel and brown sugar upfront and tropical fruits that help to balance the overall flavor. This is an enjoyable and approachable enough session beer.
