3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 A 12 oz bottle of Troegs Amber Ale-While pouring a pint glass, shows lots of carbonation. Clear amber color with a full head. Smell the hops. A good, crisp ale! Would be nice if the dating was easier to find and then read. Of the 6 bottles, only 1 was legible enough to determine it was bottled Oct ’04.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep mahagony color with a small white head. Aroma is very malty and not as hoppy as I would have expected or liked. I get some faint yeasty aromas as well. Flavor is malty up front followed by a very light dose of hops. The finish is tart and lemony. Pretty nice beer. Should be more hoppy however.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer rocks! World Class brew!
Holy shit! Another fine Pennsylvania brewery! California better start watching out!
This light copper/amber colored beer has a small, creamy off-white head. Mostly diminishing with very interesting and nice lacework.
The aroma is of Spruce, Juniper (Gin)... ok, anything evergreen! Also, black pepper and lemon make an appearance in the nose.
The flavor is very mild and pungent. Fun Spring/Summer beer.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation.
Lengthy, lightly bitter, crisp and clean finish.
Excellent Summer beer!
