2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Steamworks. Clear copper appearance with a thin head which leaves some lacing. Seems more like an IPA, with it’s distinct hoppy taste. Aftertaste was a little too rough for my liking. Overall an average that I would like to try again for a second opinion.

500ml can pour. Pours a murky golden brown with a light peripheral white fluffy head. Nose is caramel, toffee, and a bit of orange. A touch of slight orange peel sweetness flavour-wise. A little bit of astringency in the finish. Crisp. Not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy translucent golden appearance with a mid sized beige head containing commendable retention. Olfaction consisting of notes of sourdough bread, caramel, and citrus. Mid bodied for a pale ale. Citrus hops present throughout, particularly during the finish, as well as a malty caramel body. Hops are rather monotonous and could include more fruit and the malt could certainly be more flavourful as well. Not atrocious, nor ideal.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, citrus and tart. Taste is sweet light malts, passion fruit, grapefruit, and light sweet malts. Finishes with a nice malt/hop balance. Smooth execution. Not overly complex but enjoyable. Appearance is a clear orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

500ml Dose. Hellgelbes Bier mit leichtem Orangeton. Hoher fester Schaum. Schönes frisches Aroma nach Mandarine und Grapefruit, Basilikum und Zitronenschale. Antrunk unreife Honigmelone und Citrus. Dann sehr kräuterig, Hopfen und etwas Pinie. Der Geschmack ist vollmundig und lange anhaltend. Ein sehr frisches und gelungenes Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark straw color, almost golden with an orange hue, and some explosive subtle activity. Lightly creamy white half a finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with strong legs.
Aromas of citrus, caramel biscuity feel, and fresh floral spices. Flavors of quality grains, bitter citrus with a lemon and lime feel, a hint of coriander, and really sharp herbal and floral hops. Highly grassy, low on sugar, but highly sour.
Smooth slick light to medium body with perfect amount of carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with a highly spicy and astringent citrus tongue coat, thick grassy feel with a hint of sweet roasted malt.
Overall a good craft boosting complex tasty favors with an overly strong bitter citrus feel. Good freshness but a little vinous and boozy. Promising beer with a good look and body while missing some balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: the foam waves a quick “hello” and then dashes underground into evening golden arms of wheat and cold amber.
Aroma: A neck of perfumes ringed with pine needles and ice. Bitter apples and unripened pears scowl from a distance. Paper wrapped doughy grain bread hums a wholesome tune beneath.
Taste: Only a tinge, or afterthought, of hop bitterness. There is a sweet, even numbing, tingle in the aftertaste preceded by orange slices powered in a thin layer of icing sugar. The orange “lemonizes” slightly, even grows a thin grapefruit rind skin. After twenty minutes smooth, if shy, pineapple slips into the picnic brunch.
Mouthfeel: Unfortunately the foundation is a bit waterlogged, though it does not detract from the aromatics and lilting sweet citrus taste. Carbonation is near non-existent, and yet no flatness ruins the feel.
Final Thoughts: Most memorable is the lightly electrifying, sugar tongue sparks from the aftertaste. The leather rimmed perfume-orange bouquet is also difficult to forget.
