Liht honey-colored with very ight lacing. Citrus and grass on the nose. Balanced, light hops on the palate; grapefruit dominates the flavor and the finish is loooong. A very nice Pale Ale

Beer #21 Asheville trip. Pale orange, slight haze. Nice aroma, grapefruit, slight pine, touch of biscuit malt. Flavor is a match. A very well done APA. Bit of a spicy note comes through as it warms - I now see that it used some rye, so that might explain this. Really liked this.

unclemattie (4187) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Tap @ Wedge Brewing Co. Cloudy, deep golden color. Flavor has hints of Halls Honey-Lemon throat lozenge. Aroma of floral hops, honey, and sea mist. Very crisp, refreshing. A bit thirst quenching. Perfectly balanced. <27 Oct 09>

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Poured a slightly hazy copper with a small but lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of fresh sweet malt,citrus hops, and a hint of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and nice crisp finish. They packed in a whole bunch of flavor into a small beer. Very good.

On tap at the Cask Beer Festival Atlanta. This was the best of the bunch. (21 casks) Closest thing to cask ale, anyway. 5% ABV says you dont have to brew to a high gravity to produce a good beer!

Gmku (294) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 7, 2010
Decent pale ale. Lemony. Light malt. Piny hops. Thirst-quenching and drinkable, but nothing over the top for me.

Really drinkable. Nice meld of medium hops, fruit and malt. Really like this beer. Nothing special, but I would drink this regularly.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Enjoyed a couple times at the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. It was nice to see there was at least a few cask offerings with sensible ABV percentages. Appearance: Clear, light copper body with a thin, bubbly, whitish head. Smell: Aroma of sweetened lemon zest with a backing of basic pale malts. Taste: Lightly grainy pale malts with a small pinch of powdered sugar. Hmm, there’s a peculiar and fairly distinct taste of green tea early on. Lemony hop character with a medium bitterness. Finishes dry and bittersweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: Simply a reasonably tasty, enjoyable pale ale.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. An almost cat pee hoppiness, light/medium malt, perfume on the nose. Medium malt, hard citrus, very nice finishing bitter. Medium bodied with aggressive carbonation.

Elwood (3190) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours a light gold color. Light florals and grain notes in the nose. There is a clean taste with notes of pale malt, floral hops, and a slight dryness. Nice and sessionable.
