hazy copper, frothy white head, lots of lace. nose of caramel, malt, trace of citric hops...mild nose. caramel and malt at the forefront of the taste, followed by a nice, if mild, hop bitterness. medium bodied, mild bitter finish. enjoyable, sessionable brew.

Pours a medium cloudy yellow from a 12-oz can. Hoppy aroma, smoother flavor. Nice and well done, although perhaps a bit mild? I can’t really complain about that when the flavor is nice like this, though. Well-balanced hop selection.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2011
From Notes. 12oz can from Old Chicago poured into a shaker. Appearance is a cloudy rust orange with a bright white head. Aroma is strongly of floral hops. Taste is medium bitter. Light bodied with a thin texture, it has a long bitter finish. Overall, this beer is quite good. Something I will definitely try to but and drink again.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Clear golden pour with a frothy white head and drippy lace. Aroma is caramel and light hops, dare I say a little sweet tea?. Decent I guess not enough hops but drinkable

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2011
12oz can thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with a fresh grapefruity hoppiness. Starts with a decent light malty sweetness and a clean bittersweet hoppy balance before a smooth finish. Very drinkable and refreshing, but nothing exceptional.

bseribeer (128) - Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Very approachable Pale from my local brewer. Big hops and citrus aroma, almost as strong as an IPA. Pours a cloudy golden with a thick, foamy off white head. Taste is lighter than the aroma, but in no way disappointing. Grapefruit and hops with a crisp, clean finish. Good carbonation on the palate. Enjoyable pale from Wild Onion and definitely would drink again

12oz can. Poured a cloudy golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of lots of pine, floral, some earthiness, and citrus. Tastes of citrus, pine, and some toastiness.
