On tap at the taproom. Bready, biscuity malt, but it's kinda dirty. Decently balanced. Boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear burnt orange with a white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and pale malts. Flavor of toasted, bready malt and dominated by more sweet fruits. A good pale ale on the sweeter side. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

12 oz bottle. THE single most foamy fuzzy froathy pouring beer to date. it took like 10 minutes to get it all out of the bottle. not much of and aroma. strong hop and wet paper taste. i see why it’s on "manager’s Special" at Lee’s Discount Liquor

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12 oz bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a two finger tan head. The aroma was a bit of sweet malt, with floral and citrus notes. The flavor was bland and watery, not giving quite the palate that the aroma suggested.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 13/20
zach8270 (3470) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy amber pour with a ton of fizzy tan foam. Aroma was very floral and sweet with a good amount of citrus mixed in. Flavor is equally as floral and citrusy with a good amount of grapefruit and hop flavors mixing with some apple skins and dry grass. Leaves a bitterness on the tongue that’s quite nice. The amount of foam mixes poorly with the beer and gives it a very odd mouthfeel.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of mild grainy pale malt and some grassy citrusy hops. Body starts about average with a faint malty sweetness and some citric tartness before a blander finish. Pretty drinkable, but at the same time mediocre. Needs a fresher, more assertive hop profile.

This looked good. Orange with a creamy head. Smelled ok. The flavor on this I found to be quite enjoyable. Hoppy and fresh, bubbly but not bitter really. I was greatly impressed with this beer. Judging by the other rankings I wonder if they are still working on this and I got a good batch.
