Golden orange with a white head. Medium sweetness, light cereal grains, some mid-level citrus and fruity hops. Real nice mouth feel on this. Easy drinking, nice tasting, refreshing. Perfect for warm weather drinking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Nothing unpleasant, but nothing noteworthy, either. Caramel malt with the slightest hint of citrus hops.
Appearance: Clear golden color with a minimal white head that quickly disappeared.
Taste: Nothing much here--lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Well balanced, but almost to the point of no character.
Palate: Medium Body, thick texture with lively carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.
Overall: Itís a decent beer, drinkable, but nothing so standout that Iíd recommend it to a friend or seek it out over something else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden color with a thick off white head. Light bready nose with hints of a citrus hop. Some light fruityness, apple, apricot over a bready malt backbone. Harsh grassy hop finish. Uninteresting pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another beer I sampled while on vacation in the OBX. The beer had a very clear gold-amber color with a very thin white head that had short retention and light cling. The beer had a malty caramel aroma with some touches of fruit, and grainy hops. The flavor was sweet and malty, with some caramel. It was wet and low in carbonation and fizz, with a thin to medium body; not particularly exciting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden amber with a thin off-white head, with decent lacing. Some sweet hops are in the aroma, along with malt and honey. It has a very sweet palate with taste of honey malts and hops with a very mild bitterness. Overall a well balanced beer. I need to visit the brewery, as I live in VA!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright, clear, intense citrine without much head. Sweet, malty/graham aroma. Biscuity, light hopping, slightly astringent, muted woodiness. Finish with a sweet woody caste. Drinkable, but unremarkable. On tap, Capital Ale House, Richmond.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
pours deep gold color with white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity and hoppy. Flavor is assertively bitter with an unpleasant harsh edge, almost metallic. If you can ignore that there is some decent malt but overall not my favorite.

Beautiful thick golden color, aroma is slightly sweet and is followed by a very smooth flavor with a hint of fruit. Excellent all around experience!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost my favourite colonial beer. It has a good hoppy bite, is not too sweet and has a well balanced flavour overall.
