This was a gentle (in color and flavor), refreshingly citrus-hoppy beer with enough substance to earn good marks from me. It was a good consolation brew while watching the Pack get blown out at Lambeau, my wife and I being transplanted cheeseheads.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is truly "the one you want when you want one more". Never throws you a curve ball: Nice golden amber color, good white head, appropriate carbonation, thin-ish mouthfeel, good maltiness, and crisp hopping. Good out of a bottle, but it really shines on tap. I think of this as a mini Alpha King. The lower alcohol satisfies your craving for quantity, but the remainder of the beer covers quality.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with a mild hop nose. Long lasting white head leaves nice lacing. Flavor was also mild but hop dominated, body was weak, but overall a very drinkable beer.

This beer goes down easy with a decent enough flavor. Just wish it had more of a body to it. Iíll like to try their medium Ale next.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber with a smallish white head. Aroma of light hay and touch of citrus. Flavors of light toffee and caramel. Some citric flavors as well that distract from the little malt. A brew for the masses?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very plain dark orange ale. Fairly thin with some sweetness. Hardly any hops with a slight tinny flavor. Session is right. Well balanced.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Reddish brown with not much head. Flowery, grapefruity hpo aroma. Clean maltiness, crystal malt profile. Balanced hop bitterness. The hop flavour is nice, but itís lacking in depth. This is nowhere near a soft, murky maltiness expected in a mild, but is more of a lighter version of American pale ale.

Not bad for a "mild" ale or a session ale. Lightly hopped compared to Alpha King. But a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden amber with large bubbles in the frothy-around-the-edges head. Citrus/orange rind flavor and nose. A tad hoppy at the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden orange. Small, dense white head. Minimal carbonation. Aroma of citrus, hay and caramel. Weird mix of caramel, citrus and hay flavors. Supple with a mild carbonated body. Medium natured. Hoppy bitterness, juicy at times. English toffee malts clash a bit with the citric hops, even more so as this warms. Weird. Finishes with an increased toffee flavor and citric hop burps. Strange. This is supposed to be English?
