Light spice which probably comes from the added minerals. Very light floral and random fruit in the nose and flavor. Enjoyable.

Draught at SPH Brewpub. Nice amber colour with a very lacy head. Light spice aroma with notes of hops and fruit. Drinkable indeed. I have had several growlers of this one!

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Draught at Waterfront Ale House, Bklyn. Amber with a frothy white head, leaving sheets of lacing. Straw and grainy malt aroma with a light fruitiness. Flavor of sweet cereal malts with notes of light citrus and grass. Couldn’t really note any mineral additions. Mildly bitter hop finish. Nothing exciting, but very drinkable nonetheless. A pretty good session ale, if anything.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Tap @ SPH. Pours a more golden color, which is a surprise for the style, with a small, lacy white head. Aroma is caramel and malt, with a slight detectable hop and rye as well. Taste is caramel malt, with a grainy characteristic in the middle and a nice aftertaste of hops. This is a great example of the style, and a nice offering from this absolutely fantastic brewery.

Seemed like it used a swet caramel malt. I liked it a lot, though it had more hops than I’d like.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2007
On tap. Supposedly 4 days fresh! Poured a light to medium and clear orange color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, floral and a trace of spiciness. Tastes of citrus, caramel, and lightly spicy. Nice and hoppy. Glad I had a chance to try this one so fresh!

On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a large foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of floral, citrus, cereal grains, sweet malts. Flavor of hops, citrus, grains, pine, some grapefruit. Nicely done bitter.

This is a good, refreshing session ale, if that’s what you’re looking for, but I couldn’t get excited about it. Solid but undistinctive. Nicely hopped rom the opening taste to the aftertaste, some subtle flavor notes that I frankly couldn’t identify. After I finished, it occurred to me that this is what Sam Adams Boston Lager should be -- it would be a great intro to craft beer for a novice.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2007
on tap, SHPH night, Blind Tiger. Golden/light orange in color with a medium head. Aroma is floral hops, caramel, with notes of fruit. Taste is fruity, orange, with a good amount of floral hop character. Lightly bitter finish that lingers nicely. Haven’t had that many of these but seemed to be pretty well made.
