Hazed golden color with a tallish white head. Decent lace. Pale grains and floral hops along with some resin candi scents. Tinny feel, I some how feel like I have a piece of metal in my mouth. Some wheat and grain flavors. Just not clean tasting to me. 5/11

Pint can: Pours slightly cloudy gold with a tall, craggy , off-white head. Scent is almost non-existent.....a little grass, a bit of malt and grain. Taste is......well....like soap-rinsed-grain. Rather metallic.....not enjoyable at all.

I bought a single can of this pale ale on a whim because of the name. It turned out to be not quite as good as I had hoped, having a sweet citrus taste but not much hops or overall balance and character.

Bottle. Light malt and citrus hops aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Stale barley malt and light citrus hops flavor. An ale that tastes like a pale lager.

16oz can from Armanetti’s. Pours a cloudy, orange-yellow colored body with a finger-width, foamy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is sweet pale malts, grain, and a touch of caramel with a very light floral and grass. Flavor is similar. Sweet pale malts up front with some grainy bread and a light caramel. A light grass and some floral fruits before this finishes a bit cloyingly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Short aftertaste following a light body and a medium-light, bubbly carbonation. Overall, a pretty weak APA. Not out of balance, but a bit cloying in the finish with barely enough of a hopping. Eh...

16oz can 11/10/11 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-46° in Lager Glass-Pours a slightly hazy orangish golden with a two finger white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and malt. Taste of hops, malt, citus, grass, and grains. This medium bodied brew is not bad. I was expecting worse but a rather hot summer kinda day brew.
