COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach,orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Great brew. Pours a nice dull burnt orange with sediment, head, and lacing. Aromas of bright citrus and tropical fruit. Similar flavors with some tang and citrus bitterness. Yum.

16oz can shared by JohnGonk. Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of off white head. Aroma is very herbal and lemony. Reminds me of Liptons lemon ice tea. Taste is the same. Lemons, orange zest, tea leaves, and herbal hops.

From 16 oz can to small snifter. Excellent aroma; high clarity; lots of citrus/fruity aroma and flavor; dry. Weak spot: mouthfeel.

The beer pours great with a nice amber color that passes some light through it, has a nice white head that thins out but lingers around and leaves good lacing on the glass. The smell is decent with bitter malty flavor with a resin hoppy finish. The taste is great with a nice bready bitterness, a mild malty flavor, and a piney finish. The mouthfeel is great as the beer is well carbonated and the taste leaves you dry and bitter. Overall, a solid english bitter with a great finish and flavor to it.

Can, thanks to one of my co-workers for bringing it into town. Poured a nice, clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was very light, caramel malts, not a whole lot of hop notes - enough to balance out the malt. Very light otherwise. Flavor was light caramel notes. This one was very drinkable and while it’s perhaps not robust or bold, the sessionablity of this one, with it remaining clean and enjoyable makes it quite a feat over other similar beers that retain a metallic or sickly element to it.

Pours a dark gold almost copper tinged with a small white head that fades away to a wisp. Almost smells like an IPA. Very citrusy nose with slight hints of spice. Smells good, but I’d call it abnormal for the style. Starts off slightly citrusy, but not anywhere close to the nose. Light spicy bitterness invades the palate much earlier than normal, but never gets too intense. Very even bitterness all the way across the tongue. A very bready almost rye like as well sweetness hits after the initial hop burst before fading into the bitterness as well. Mouthfeel is very fairly light with good carbonation levels. Very easy drinking beer. Definitely a bitter beer, but never gets close to the palate wrecking ways of an IPA. Everything about the flavor is exactly what I would expect from a bitter. Another very good job by Surly.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2013
Can. Some restrained citrus, herbs (maybe sage), and light blonde raisins. Dull brown color with a thin head like pancake batter. Light caramel / Brit-style maltiness comes through, with some metallic notes / finishes with a dose of hops, then balances, and then disappears. Thin-medium body. Good, low-alc, session stuff.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer, small off white head. Palate is light, superfine carbonation. Neutral malt. Slighy floral note and light orangey citrus. Finishes softish and semi dry. Mild minerals. Flirting with bland but okay.

Pour at Surly during the RBSG. Crisp clear yellow in color with a white head. Nice bitterness. Not overbearing. Refreshing and clean. Easy drinking session brew.
