Finhead (1325) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2011
A cloudy orange pour with a white head. The aroma is mostly pine, but there is also a little citrus. The light body is an oily texture with average carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter throughout with no real contrast or backbone.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head and high carbonation. The aroma is piney and the taste has plenty of hop bitterness. The body has a moderate malt presence with a bit of sweetness in the middle but the finish is rather dry and bitter. This brew is packaged as an irish ale but more so resembles an american pale ale. But thatís not a problem considering itís a very nice representation of the style. I hope to see more offering from Wild Onion in the near future. If you havenít already, check out their pumpkin ale.

12 oz can. It pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy off-white head. The smell is pretty good, it has a nice bit of citrus hops. The flavor is decent but could be better It has a light bitterness to go with a malty base. The hops are basic with hints of pine, herbs, and citrus. It isnít a bad brew, nothing special however.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Tasted on 3/5/11 from a 12oz can. Pours hazy dark orange with a a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick and rocky lace. The nose is some pale hay and cereal malt along with a bit of grass, light resin and citrus fruit as well. The flavor is more bitter than the nose would have suggested starting off with a bit of malt sweetness, and moving into the grassy hay, citrus, and resin bitterness. The body is fairly light with average carbonation and a long resin bitter and orange peel finish.

12oz. Can: Aroma of hops, grass, light crystal malt, and a hint of caramel. Poured amber in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, and a few large, particles throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tasted of malt, hops, light citrus, light lemon. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Crystal malt, hops, citrus finish is dry. A decent APA.

LinusStick (2990) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Blah. A boring and one dimensional APA. Aroma was weak. Could pick up lemon and light malt. Pour was a decent hazy orange with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was a lot hoppier than most APAs and that was welcome. The problem was the beer was very thin, the bitter hoppiness seemed to turn to water after the swallow. There is an astringent bitterness left on the back of the tongue after each sip. Decent carbonation. Nothing I would drink again.

This can was courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks. It poured a hazy gold, with a foamy white head and moderate lacing. The nose is citrus and floral hops Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is mild compared to the nose, but gets better as the beer warms. Light biter finish. Quite decent.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy orange golden caramel with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of faint floral notes, light orange citrus and hops. Taste of faint floral notes, watery hops and citrus. Good intentions with this brew, but it sadly comes up short.
