Scipio (700) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours a bright orangish red with a full slightly off white head. Aroma contains has a good presence, but actually gives a more soft impression. Pine, orange, grass, and some bready notes are here with none of them really being dominant. Taste feels more grassy than anything else. Lemon notes and hops are easily tasted. Pine and some bready malts are in here as well. LIghter in body, thin in texture but not watery. Bitter throughout tasting with an easy aftertaste of pine and hops. Pretty good overall. A very nice beer.

Cloudy orange-gold with big, foamy, white head / Bright nose of orange and pine / Medium body, somewhat fat and resinous, mild hopping / Mostly subdued flavors of grain, honey, pine, and vague citrus / Fine but unremarkable.

AirWolfie (10) - Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Decently flavored. floral and citrus flavors. Fairly drinkable. Floral and citrus up front and light piney taste afterwords. Not to heavily carbonated almost lightly. Leaves a slight bitter aftertaste in the mouth. All in all a decent beer for the season.

Scrapersnbeer (1481) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2012
Mild citrus hops and chalk aroma. Bright orange, thick and murky looking. Medium bitterness with some metallic background. Lighter body, but still a bit filling for a session ale. It’s just okay.

fidelis83 (1953) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours cloudy gold with beige floaties and a 1 finger, creamy white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, floral and citrus hops, biscuit and light hay. Flavor is caramel, toffee, sweet malt, cereal grain, toast, sweet floral and citrus hops, with a biscuit, caramel and grapefruit finish. Palate is light bodied with a dry, but slightly slick entry, neutral middle and off dry finish. Moderately carbonated. Pretty decent APA.
