Aroma for this beer is light and hart to pick up. Cooper color with plenty of carbonation. It’s head is light, but does stick to the sides moderately. The taste is decent, nothing spectacular.

Bottle at home. Very average pale ale. Lightly hopped, light malt, fruity, dryish finish. Not bad but certainly not memorable.

GranvilleTim (1776) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is hops. Nice malt base with earthy hops. Middle of the road beer, ok tasting. Don’t get the 420 comparison. Sporadic lacing.

vipinvelp (2690) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Forgot and thus the beer was served in a frosted glass, even the foam froze. Light amber, small foam. Light hoppy aroma, all killed by the cold. Nice bitter taste. (New Orleans 201505)

tmoreau (2829) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2015
On tap at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL. showing a presentable layer of soft white head foam that reduced to a persistent ring & film, and left some sheet-like lacing on the glass. The nose was mainly perfumed, floral, and herbal, with maybe a bit of citrus on the back. Ditto on the taste, including a lingering, deeply earthy and herbal hop bitterness that I never would have guessed as Centennial & Cascade initiated. Medium bodied with decent carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish. Interestingly hoppy and sessionable.

ianclayton (2) - Lakewood Ranch, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015 does not count

mike67 (892) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2015
On Tap at Longhorn in Dalton, GA. Pours orange with fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of ripe fruit, bready malt and hint of hops. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal hops, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. OK brew.

Light clear gold with a thin head and lots of sediment. Smell is floral, perfume with some citrus. Taste is clean, saltine cracker flavor with some hop crispness, some catty/savory character and a hint of caramel malt.
