Bottle. Poured an orange color. No head, no lacing. Aroma is floral, some citrus hop notes. Taste is rather crisp and clean. Nothing lingering to long. Medium bodied or lighter. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to goldtwins for this one. Pours dark straw, with a small, creamy white head. Aroma of malt, some hops, fruit, and rye bread. Tastes malty, dry, with slight hops and citrus at the finish. Medium-bodied mouthfeel, while crisp, and a finishing dryness, accompanied by hops and citrus.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Slight ryeness in nose, mostly cascade hints. Medium bodied, light on any flavor, somewhat bitter at the finish. Very average with no offensive qualities. The cascade in the nose is the best part!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hoppy yeast cracker nose. Dry, bitter, mild. Just mostly a dry, fairly flavorless, bubbly beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good pale. Poured a nice gold with a moderate white head and a good bit of carbonation. Great hoppy aroma that reminded me specifically of Sierra Nevadaís classic Pale, with a citrus, grassy aroma faintly reminiscent of an IPA. The flavor wasnít quite as great; nice and crisp but lacking the hoppy punch that I was expecting. Good mouthfeel, and overall, a really well-balanced and easy-to-drink beer.

Light, refreshing pale ale. Rather crisp and a bit of citrus flavor. Fairly unique version of an APA. Look forward to trying this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am continually amazed at home many beers are contract brewed by Frederick Brewing. The bottled version of htis beer falls into just tha category. Clear amber with a fairly dense white foamy head. The aroma is very pale ale, a bit of sweet bready malt a bit of citurs hops. The flavor is not bad at all, more complex than the aroma. Good firm maltiness that is balanced by a moderate amount of citurs hops. It must be the rye, but time and time again I have beers that contain rye that continue to exceed my expectations. Thanks GoldTwins.

Wow, I must be missing something...I tasted this, then tasted it again and could not pull much from it...tasted mostly of seltzer water to me.

Perhaps it was the tap I had this one, but man was this watery. This would be an esquisite beer, matching step for step the Sierra Harvest if it werenít so watery. I feel gyped. Good malt profile and well hopped. An APA lovers dream

Small light tan head, short lived, no lacing. Clear light copper color. Gentle, piney, citrusy hop nosewith the rye spiceyness showing up also. Med/light body. Mild hop flavors backed up with the dry, rye notes, lightly bready as well. Finish is dry, tangy. Nice APA. Thanks BC2
