Had this on draft at Emerald Coast Brew Fest in Pensacola, FL and also in bottle prior to the event. Poured a nice orange-gold with decent head that didnt last very long. Aroma and flavor is hoppy. Has a bit of citrusy taste with a crisp finish. Mouthfeel is good as is the drinkability. Good beer.

Draft. Pours a darker golden amber with a medium, fluffy white head. Citrus hops dominate this brew. Body of a bready malt leads to a smooth finish. Great session beer to beat the heat.

This beer has some potential. While the palate is thin, it still have some malty character that gives a bit of oomph. overall this is a decent beer.

Thank you to Brentfeesh for the trade! Gold color with no head. Very earthy hop aroma, definitely more like the aroma from an English Pale Ale than American. The hop bitterness in the taste is almost completely subdued by the sweet malt, making it close to an Amber in my opinion.

Gold in color. Moderate carbonation. Hop aroma. Biscuity, bready malt body with some hops in the flavor. Very smooth and drinkable. Well balanced, if the flavors are understated.

A 12-oz bottle shared by Badgerben, pours an orangish-golden brew with a small off-white head that dissolves quickly with no lacing. Aroma of some carael malt, dark red berries, citrus hops and some mild spice. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a balanced flavor of caramel malt, citrus hops and some sweet pear. Finish is slightly oily, citrus aftertaste with some mild bitterness.
