j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a just clear golden orange amber with a medium sized white head. Soft caramel, nutty malt. Medium bodied, light grain and a little tinge of metal. Caramel throughout. Light caramel on the finish and a little bitter, going very slowly from grapefruit to quinine on the finish.

Growler from pub. Thanks Catskill Bill! Hazy to clear appearance with a small white head. Aroma has great belgian characteristics. Right away almost has that typical Ommegang like yeast aroma and spice. Really solid. Flavor has a nice hop presence without being to bitter with a nice spice note. Also a bit green which I like. Almost fresh hop like with a bit of grassy tones. Very well balanced with the belgian yeast and german hops. Clean and smooth and really drinkable. Three pints went down like nothing. Could drink this all night.

Draft at VBC. Pours hazy gold with white head. Nose is pale malt, hops, citrus, florals, spice. Tastes of pale malt, lemongrassy hops, slight funk, florals, spice. Medium palate heft and good complexity.

Nice light pale with a moderate head. Overly floral aroma but very smooth and a slight hop kick. Enjoyed on tap at the source.

obxdude10 (2270) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2010
This pale ale enjoys a crystal-clear golden pour with a sticky and lacy off-white head. The nose is full of floral hops, caramel, bread, earth and some citrus. The flavors are dry and enjoyable, with notes of floral hops, earth, lightly toasted bread, oranges, subtle grapefruit and some lemon. The finish is really smooth, with more hoppiness, spiciness and dryness.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Had on tap at Victory A-pours a transparent golden color with a bubbly white head. S-the nose is quite strong, lightly toasted biscuit up front with a good citrus hop presence and light pepper spice. There is also some honey in the back to add a bit more sweetness. T-bready malts act as the backbone of this beer, the hop presence is mild but apparent in the back. notes of spice try to offset the sweet citrus and honey in the finish. M-this is smooth on the palate and quite syrupy. a little low on carbonation to help balance the syrupy texture on the palate. D-decent offering, a little sweet in the back but the pepper acts to try and balance that out adding a bit of complexity.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Transparent gold with a pond-scummy white head. Nose of paper, light grass, and pale biscuit. Flavor is similar, some light bitterness with fresh grass and surprisingly aggressive spices that create a light clash. There is also a honey sweetness that overrides some of the above niceties, and in all this comes off a bit too sweet and too Belgian, particularly the body where a bit more carbonation would go a ways to balancing out the sweet, syrupy body.

alobar (3561) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Pours a straw yellow color with an aroma of citrus, toffee, Belgian yeast. Flavor of citrus, toffee, Belgian yeast and a touch of lemon. Not sure how this is an IPA, but a decent beer regardless.

Slipstream (2479) - USA - MAY 12, 2010
On tap at the Victory brewpub. One of a series of fairly similar light ales that had the prefix CBC. It is called a Bavarian pale ale, a style I have not come across before. Light and sweet, with a nice nip in the finish.
