I have had this many times, and canít belive I have not rated this. Clear amber body, foamy and creamy off white head. Hop nose that is not over whelming. Nice crisp hop taste, dry bitter finish. Nice brew here.

Very nice! The warm, cloudy amber color proclaims it as a beer worth your time. Head is thick and creamy. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, without bitterness - not complex, but robust and pleasant. Smooth as fine silk, it is a very drinkable ale that would probably make a good introduction to craft brews for someone who is used to macro-brewed lagers.

This is an excellent beer. Love it ice cold in the summer. Iím normally not a fan of hoppy beer but this one I love.

Nice orange, some-what hazy appearance, the head minimal, its a relatively hoppy Pale but not too bitter. The finish is somewhat sweet and smooth. A very unique but pleasant Pale Ale. Better on tap than out of the bottle.

bottle from Decaturstevo. Clear orange with no head. Mild hop/malt aroma. The taste was a good balance between the hop and malt with smooth mild hop finish. Easy drinkin beer.

The beer pours orange with a thick light tan head. The aroma is somewhat sweet and quite fragrant with citrusy hops. The flavor is malty sweet and stands up well against the sizable dose of hops. Most of the hops hit you in the form of aroma and flavor - not a whole lot of bitterness. The finish is long and somewhat hoppy. There is some yeast in the finish, too. The mouthfeel is bubbly and kind of thin. Overall, a nice session beer.

For the Southeast US, it isnít awful. Amber with a light haze. It has a slight grapefruit taste but itís barely there. It has potential for a summer drink. Nice clean taste. 420? heh.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Thanks to quagmite for the bottle. Slightly hazy orange with a small head. Aroma of citrus and grass hops, and sweet caramel. Doesnít quite measure up to the best of the style...less hoppy character. But it tastes fresh and crisp. Light body.

Deep gold with thick beige head, citrus hop aromas leaping out. Nice woody malt backbone holds up well against medium bitterness and grapefruit tang. Playful carbonation through medium-light body. Well balanced malt, hops and mouthfeel. Excellent pale ale!
