Slight floral and pine aroma, and pours a slightly hazy orange with a full, long laster white head. They decided not to hit you over the head with hops, with the flavor being a strong piney and little grapefruit in the background. Actually goes down reasonable smoothly for all that going on. some people might find the taste muted, but I prefer to say its well balanced. Worked for me.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. The aroma is really light; some malt and hops. The taste is your basic PA, but with some nice pine/hops. Fizzy and a little bit bitter. Overall, missing a stand out flavor. OK.

I agree with last reviewer with the character of the aroma and flavor and palate. I dont agree that carbonation was distracting and I dont detect this dustyness he speaks of but, JoeMcPhee is right. Its not a bad beer, in fact, its a good beer.

Tap at d.b.a. Hazy golden-orange beer. Aroma is lightly lemony with a soft orange and bready sweet malt aroma. A little bit honeyish with a soft earthiness. Lightly floral yeastiness as well. A dusty and fairly carbonic character that is a bit distracting, but overall its not a bad beer.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle - Sweet honey fruity aroma. Golden colored beer. Its a good beer, but something seems off. Carbonation level is good, but there is an odd bite. The flavor is fruity and bitter and not holding together well. I like the beer, but know this brewer can do better.

Goodgrief (2010) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Dec. 2006 - I guess if it werent for boring beers, we wouldnt know the special ones when we drank them. This beer seemed muted...flavor was weak and not crisp or hoppy in any way. Typical citrusy/pine flavors. Thin mouthfeel. Oh well.

Pours orange/amber/brown with a good amount of off white head. Nose is orange piney hops. Flavor is a kind of odd mix of bitter, orange-ish citrus, and hops. I cant say it seems really balanced. Full bodied, sure. But balanced? No. Too much bite. Feel is kind of thick and doughy. Nice enough carbonation. Overall, the odd flavor profile here kind of drops the drinkability in my opinion. I mean, hey, theres no balance here where there should be. Ya know? Just seems to be lacking.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle. Golden body, big rocky white head, citrus and yeast (!) in the nose. Metallic notes at the start, honey, moderate bitterness, perhaps some citrus in the finish.

Bitter burst of citrus and honey initially, then settling to an utterly forgettable McPaleAle.
