355mL bottle poured a golden-orange color with a nice off-white head and some lovely lacing. Aroma of floral hops and toasted malts. Taste is nicely balanced between the floral and citrus hops and the lightly toasted malty sweetness. This is an awesome bitter. bigbish (715) - California, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Another tasty beer from Avery. Great malty flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. Good stuff. hayduke (5732) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Joint tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured and orange to copper color with an off-white head and good lacing rings. Nose of floral hops and malts. . Medium bodied wit a very smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is a very good balance between malts and hops with citrus and flowers. Bitter finish and more citrus. A simply delicious beer. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
(Bottle, party downstairs at Falling Rock) clear copper, foamy tan head. Nose of cherry, caramel, bit oxidized, and brown sugar. Taste of hoppy oils, caramel and brown sugar, creamy dry body. It’s quite thick. theisti (4238) - Kansas, USA - MAR 26, 2011
12 oz bottle purchased at Royal in KCMO. Pour is hazed copper golden with a big and noisy three inch off white head. The head is rocky and lasting. Aroma is caramel sweetness, along with floral honey and a touch of grassiness. Pretty sweet malty nose, but clean enough. Taste is the caramel honey sweetness right away, turning toward the floral, which is almost herbal in the back. The finish has some mildly spicy yeastiness poking through. Palate is medium to lighter bodied, very carbonated and the spiced herbal finish. After that clears, the caramel honey comes back out in the finish. The first bottle out of this six pack seemed to have an infection, this one tasted much better and cleaner.

On tap at the brewery in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice crisp golden color with a fluffy who’re head and some good lacing. Nose brings some nice bready malt and a bit of earthy and grassy hops. Taste backs off with restrained hops and a bit of dough. Feel is light and slightly bitter. Drinks quite well and was an enjoyable starting point.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a slightly cloudy golden like jue. A small quickly vanishing head. Aroma not real distinct, slight hints of alcohol. Taste somewhat watery, heavily carbonated with a slight hint of wheat or citrus hard to pinpoint. The first 4 I had tasted better than the one I’m having tonight. If you like ESBs this is worth trying. Not a high ranking beer on my list. jb43 (1695) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2010
(bottle, 3/28/10). Copper color with light cloudiness. Large off white head. Moderate grassy hop aroma with very light bready malt. Flavor of the same. Long duration. Moderate bitter finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Good lacing. Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Compared to most of Avery’s brews, this one is pretty tame. There’s nothing too special here, but a nice well balanced brew. This is a good beer served with dinner or lunch. EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange yellow pour with a light tan head. Malty aroma with nutty notes. Light pine and earth flavor with a very bitter finish. Unimpressed.
