This was a really great beer, with mild hops and flavorful malts. Definitely a great way to celebrate Philadelphia.

On draft at an Olive Garden in Willow Grove, PA. Dark golden in the glass, nearly amber. Fine white creamy head. Don´t know, why they iced the glass inside. Starts malty, light but definitiv present hop herb, light citrus fruity, pleasant light bitterness. And I added on my noticepaper the word crisp before I read it on the commercial description. Nice one!

Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, PA near, Philadelphia.
A fairly hoppy pale ale with a great citric hop flavor backed up by caramel and bready malt.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
A quite decent session ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 5-25-12 -
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The brew was served with a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. The head faded rather fast giving a light amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of bread, citrus and malt. The heaviest citrus is of lemon zest nature. Some other floral and spicy aromas are in the nose as well rounding it out nicely.
Taste – The taste is of a biscuit and malt up front and is mixed with some lightly sweet and citrus hop notes. Toward the middle it dries out more with some lemon and spice entering the taste. While the biscuit flavor lessen as the taste goes on, the lemon and spice flavors get stronger as the flavor moves to the end. At the end a bitter lemon and spice flavor are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – Light in body with a higher level of carbonation. Good for giving a refreshing and easy drinking brew.
Overall – Very easy to drink with a drier bitter lemon and spicy flavor. While the bitter that it leaves on the tongue is just so-so it is a good session brew for a nice summer day as it has good flavors (other than the bitter aftertaste) and a great mouthfeel.

Growler Mom brought home from Philly for me. Clear gold. Aroma of citrus, lemon zest, and a little pine. The taste follows suit with a some light bread/grain. The palate is light and clean. This is forgettable. There isn’t anything wrong with it but, nothing stands out either. Pretty plain.
