Bottle. Nice golden, hazy pour with a frothy top. It’s got a nice fruity aroma. This drinks quite nicely, too ... with a decent all-lager base, but a citrus-fruity hop flourish, too. Nice beer. (#5767, 10/2/2014)

Transfer from BA review on 10-13-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy orange-copper color with a one finger foamy white head. The head fades slowly over time to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of hop smells consisting of some grapefruit citrus, earthy, and floral aromas. Along with these smells are notes of some sweet citrus of a tangerine nature as well as some caramel and bready aromas. Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and caramel flavor matched by some hop flavors of an earthy and grapefruit citrus nature. As the flavor advances more caramel as well as a lighter fruit flavor comes to the tongue. Along with these flavors other hop tastes of a floral and even more grapefruit nature comes to the tongue. Some yeasty flavor develop during the taste and combined with some pine hop flavors as well. With the sweeter flavors of the brew dwindling a bit more toward the end and with a surge of the grapefruit hop flavor, a rather crisp and nicely hopped flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for the style and create a great easy drinking feel overall. Overall – This is a fantastic brew for the style and the price. Pound for pound, this brew really packs a punch. It is a very good go too; that is for sure.

Lager body with a hint of hop flavor at the end. Nice well balanced lager, however a little boring.

Beerman6686 (4676) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
This poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was of grassy and earthy hops and light pale malt. Like strain with a handfull of buffering hops thrown in

callmemickey (3005) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Clear golden body with a medium sized white head and spotty lacing. Citrus, stone fruits, florals, and that bready lager quality that lets you know this is in fact a lager. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth, forgetable finish. Halfway decent for what it is.

Tap at Jekyll in Erie. Pours a hazy light amber with a thick layer of cream colored head. Aroma of malts. Taste is crisp, malts again but nothing offensive.

sonnycheeba (3745) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Tap. Pours clear gold with a thick pillow of creamy white head. Aroma is pale malts, corn, light floral notes, and faint orange peel. Flavor is dry malts, medium hop bitterness, faint citrus esters, and faint corn. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

snoworsummer (2440) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Draft in Erie. Pours hazy amber with a thick, creamy off white head. Tastes like creamy, buttery, nutty hops. Light body and low carbonation. Light aroma of musky, nutty grains.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy, yeasty and bready with a bit of pine and vague fruity hops. The flavor was tangy, sweetish and malty with a bit of pine and sulfur. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Look- clean golden orange with thin head. Nose- some very faint hops. Flavor- muddled hops, crisp maltiness. Pretty average IPL.
