Bottle from Once Upon a Vine North in Richmond, VA. Pours a reddish amber with a 2-finger head. Citrus and floral hops aroma. Assertive citrus and pine hops throughout with subtle caramel and rye notes. Full bodied, strong effervescence.

Thanks to Hogtown Harry for this one. The pour is dark straw with a 2-finger, off-white head. The aroma is caramel malty, with some honey, apricot, and pale malty honey. The taste was pale malty, with some crisp honey notes coupled with mild hops.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 A luxurious head of foam and thick lacing cover smooth caramel in delicate earthy, citrusy hop bitterness…Lemony tea leaves and oily biscuits… Subtle and balanced, bitter enough to be quenching…

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottle @ Victory Cafe. Dark amber body with a moderate creamy off white head (3+). Fruity aroma with modest hops and surprisingly noticeable alcohol, much more than it should have for such a low abv brew. Similarly fruity flavour is roughly diminished by a strong alcohol presence that is not particularly well integrated into the rest of the flavour. Average palate. Not a great example of this beer. Disappointing. 6/3/5/3/10 - 2.7
<P>July 2003. Had mixed experiences with this. One tasty too warm and too fruity, one perfection of a pale ale at St. Lawrence beer festival, and one unbalanced hop profile on tap. 4/3/5/3/12 - 2.7

Pours a transparent orange amber with a wispy-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fairly fresh citrusy hops with some mild pale malty sweetness. Starts semi-sweet with a decent earthy bittering hop balance before a drier finish. Pretty drinkable and true to style.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Nyk’s Bistro Pub, Montréal, QC.
Clear amber colour with small to average sized white head.
Caramel malt and sugary candy sweetness in aroma.
Mild sugary sweet and woody malty flavour. Drinkable but boring. No hops to speak of.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brilliant orange-amber with a moderate head. Fresh apricot fruit aroma with some green leafy element too. Initially modestly sweet and lightly fruity, but with a woody dry note in the finish. Surprisingly refreshing despite its complexity and very approachable. Fantastic!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This copper ale poured with a substantial beige head that lasted a while. The flavor is rather thin, but has some nice tasting caramel malt and a slightly bitter finish.
