Amber pour with a white head and lots of white lacing. Some floral and citrus hoppiness in the nose. Nice taste, citrus is there, some rind-like bitterness. Not much orange to this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Town Hall Tap. Amber-brown-orange body. Steady creamy beige head. Nice citrus edge, smooth malt backbone. Some English Ringwood in the aftertaste. Woody toffee. Good, but relatively standard brewpub fare. Leaning into the medium dark malts more than most US Pales. OK.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Pale amber in colour with moderate carbonation. ARomas are of citrus dish soap, and pine needles. Tastes of pink grapefruit, tropical citrus fruit, and pine firewood. Medium bodied, and hoppy without being overly bitter. A nice session beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at THT 1Oct2012, Amarillo hops, Yum. The citrus from the hops dominates, and its tough to discern the orange additions becuase of these hops, so to me it tastes like a well hopped APA. which is good because I love well hopped APAs

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Town Hall Tap. Light brown color with low carbonation. Very nice hop aroma. Flavor is dry hops. I do pick up some citrus, but not orange specifically, and I think it is coming more from the hops than orange peel. Still, this is a solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Town Hall Tap. Pours clear ruby-gold, 1-finger thick white head, fine lacing. Nose is spicy hops, citrus; a bit generic-smelling, if thatís possible. Flavours of bright grapefruit and orange, nice spiciness, somewhat "juicy" in the mouth, which I always like. Tart and bright, and effortlessly drinkable, if a bit forgettable on the nose.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marmealade Sky is a easy drinking 4.9% American Pale Ale brewed with Amarillo hops and sweet orange peel. Both of those ingredients come through really nice. This one pours a dark amber color with a small one finger head. Slight lacing throughout the glass. The orange peel in this brew is what comes through the most. Lemon and grapefruit from the Amarillo hops come in next but the peel is the key here and it really gives off a nice and inviting aroma. A strong caramel malt backbone finishes it off.
The taste is really more of the same. Iíll first say that this is a fantastic sessionable beer. Definitely a different take on a Pale Ale. Iím finding myself stepping away from the stronger IPAs these days and really enjoying the smaller abv Pale Ales. They can be just as hoppy and refreshing as a 7% IPA. The citrus is first up just like in the smell. Something I didnít really pick up in the smell was the presence of some grassy notes. I did pick it up in the taste. The beer is rounded out by the lemon and grapefruit and caramel malt. There really are a good amount of hops in this brew. Itís noticeable with the very bitter aftertaste.
The mouthfeel is medium and creamy. Goes down like a good APA should.
