I serve this on tap at home, an excellent beer, forms a nice head if poured down the middle of a shaker glass. this will dissipate, but it leaves very nice lacings, which should be recaptured by lightly swirling. Great Hot Wather Beer!

Straw colored ale, creamy white head. Nose held soft notes of florals, nutty earthiness, light citrus, and a kiss of underlying sweet malt. Flavor is basically a subdued hop / malt balance that mirror the aroma. Light to medium bodied, prickly carbonation, semi-bitter finish. A nice easy drinking APA…

Bottle. Poured a deep gold with little head and an obvious effervescence. A notably sweet hops dominates the aroma. My beer, which was withing their freshness date had a mild hop bitterness up front with a decent malt body. Finished crisp and clean. Nothing special, but quite drinkable.

Pours to an nice yellowish orange color with a white head that dissipates quickly...but nice lacing that stays on long. Fruity, hoppy aroma of bananas and citrus. Taste is slightly bitter, but has a good mouthfeel and finish. Would be good for the golf course, beach or other activities calling for several beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Summit’s Wayside Tavern (Snellville). I had this on 04/20/06 and I got to keep the glass. And the next glass, and the next one and… Anyway, 420 is a clear gold and it formed a bit of a head after I drank it down and swirled the glass. A little lacing was left on the glass as I drank it (them). The aroma is light and piney. The taste is of hops up front with a clean aftertaste. Good beer for a hot day.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Summits sandy springs for the 420 release party and came with a 420 pint glass. Pours a light copper color with a decent white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy- pine and citrus, slight orange resin, and a nice light crystal malt profile. Flavor is moslty hoppy with more c hop flavor and bitterness, along with a bit of light crystal malt, but finishes a bit too overcarbonated and or dry. Could ahve a bit more residual sweetness, but makes for an easy drinking nice summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber pour with medium white head. Nice round floral hop aroma. Sweet malts mixed in with the hops. Resinous although almost muted malt flavors, if that makes any sense. Malts are not overly assertive. Grapefruity hop bitterness to finish, very dry...too dry for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours a gold color with a moderate white head. Somewhat sweet floral aroma. Flavor is mainly malty, with some hop undertones, coming out in the finish. This is somewhat of an institution in Atlanta, and I’ve had it a lot, so it’s sort of hard to rate objectively. It’s a fine fallback beer that’s available just about anywhere in the city, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Very nice floral and slighty spicy
Appearance: pours Golden with a nice slightly off white head which lasted a while
Flavor: Malt forwad with some caramel with a nice hop bite to it.
Palate: Medium light bodied, opens with a hop bite which yields to caramelly sweetness and seems to linger a little while
Overall: Another good pale ale... very well constructed but I could not find anything outstanding about it. The beer was serverd way way too cold... I had to wait a while for my first sip...

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2008 On tap in Savannah, GA. Arrived at the table a clear golden amber with no head and left no lace. Mild aroma of malt and a few faint notes of hops. The flavor is very nice with solid malt up front followed by some moderate grapefruit hops. Light-medium bitterness that does not linger long. Crisp, refreshing finish with some breadiness in the aftertaste. Enjoyable.
Original rating 3/28/2006. 12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium gold with a moderate off-white head. Pleasant, slightly sweet aroma. Flavor is a nice combination of malt sweetness, good yeasty bread, a bit of citrus, with a pleasant hop finish. Not overly hopped. Very drinkable and enjoyable. 7-4-8-4-14=3.7
