Medium copper pour, nice, soft white head. Sprucey aroma with some sweet cake mix thrown in there. Well hopped flavor - nicely rounded - not too bitter. Fruit presence is more peachy and necrtarine like than grapefuit. Some nuttiness makes its way in as well. Clean even mouthfeel, somewhst sticky. Rather enjoyed this one. . Thanks to Aurelius for saving this out of his Ale-in-the-mail shipment.

From bottle poured a nice amber color with a good amount of head. Nice flavor of hops with a quickly fading aftertaste.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a nice thick white head with good lacing. Unfortunately for me the aroma is all sweet corn butter and grass clippings as is the flavor mixed with a bitter bite in the finish. It did not make the journey well. Must try closer to the source.

crazyvin (1963) - New York, USA - MAY 10, 2007
copper body thich white head, which faded down to a thin coating. Aroma was somewhat piney but also had a strong corny note. Flavor was sweet with some hops. Somewhat over-carbonated.

Bottle poured a clear copper/amber color with small head. Aroma was sweet caramel with buttery diacetyl fermentation notes. The flavor had a mild bitterness with a big diacetyl taste just like others tasted.

Fruity aroma gives way to a hoppy taste. It has a sweet beginning and a bitter finish. Very dry. Worth a shot.

12 oz bottle. Nice floral hop aroma. A little darker than some pale ales at a light copper color. Decent amount of hop flavor and nice malt flavor as well. Relatively balanced although a bit towards teh extra pale ale/IPA in terms of bitterness

Has a very intence disirable diactyle flavor. After taste is a welcomed hop flavor.

Aurelius (4229) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2007
Mixed American and UK hop aroma on sweet caramel malt and diacetyl. Big poofy head, bad label that looks like somebody’s kid sister got hold of the graphics software. Grapefruity, moderate sweetness, somewhat overbrewed, a bit tangy. Medium bitterness, lightly brothy. A garden variety New England regional. Medium body, finishes out with a medium-long super-brewed hop thing. Needs work. Ale in the Mail selection.

Pours a light brown color with very little head. It is very clear looking. The beer smells a little like citrus with a hint of florals. This beer is a little bitter with touches of grass and flowers. It also has a bit of a dull, wheaty aftertaste. The beer has a light body with a light fizz.
