RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours orange with a spotty white lacy head. Aroma of wheat bread, pepper, grass, lemon and orange. Tastes of bread and grass with something tangy about the flavor and the way it lays on the tongue, but it’s not citrusy really. The finish is toasty and has more citrus flavors. Really drinkable, easy going and light. Hits the tongue in a really mild way. Not bad.

DeweyDell (159) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber color. Mild hoppy aroma, nicely balanced with sweet malts. Flavor is the same... mild, balanced. I actually had this on tap last week, and it was more flavorful and fresh... It’s not a huge beer, but it’s good and very drinkable.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours clear, filtered, pale golden with a small bubbly white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is very biscuity with a light touch of sweet malts. Taste is lightly bitter, smooth, malty, kind of tasteless but not in a bad way, if that makes sense. Light to medium bodied. Short finish. This would be a nice session beer. Not very flavorful or anything but a nice easy drinking brew.

A very good American micro-brew. If you can find it on tap even better. It’s a good outdoors beer.

Good dark yellow/orange pour with a white head. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes. Nice citrus taste with hop bitterness that lingers. Very nice beer.

emacgee (4611) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours a clear amber with a frothy thick white head. The aroma is sweet, shows caramel, some citrus and light hops. The flavor is sweet, a tad thin, fairly one dimensional, light hops that add a mild bitterness. Finishes easy.
