Disappointing half-finger head that leaves no lace. The liquid itself is cloudy and dark golden color.
Slightly sweet, almost cherry-like, smell. Faint hop in the background.
Much stronger hop in the flavor profile, like a hoppy pale ale. Weaker pal malt flavors,. Proper body for the style, which is to say thinner than most pale ales. This is a very easy beer to drink. kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - APR 27, 2009
12 oz bottle. Dark gold pour with a medium fizzy white head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste of bread and malt with a nice slightly bitter hop finish. Reminds me more of a mild American pale ale. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 21, 2009
Good smooth beer. A clear orange-yellow hue with a white head that had some retention. Aroma was very malty with some nice bread malts. Hops were mild and floral. Flavor had a nice subtle sweetness to it that was refreshing. A good beer that wasn’t mind blowing but was done just right. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2009
12oz bottle-pours a dissipating off white head and hazy amber color. Aroma is bready/sweet light malt, light fruit, hint of herbal hops. Taste is herbal hops comes out first, then some spice hops with backbone of bready/light malt. Finish is herbal hops. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for picking this out. dmac (6584) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle from EZ Liquors. Pours a deep shade of orange wth lots of large clinging bubbles and an average to smallish frothy white head. Aroma is to grainy sweet like someone poured honey all over a piece of bread. The flavor is far more crisp then the sweet aroma would lead one to believe with a nice grainy prescence and a decent floral hop finish. Not the most complex beer out there but good enough to knock a few back.

12 ounce bottle from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a medium frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, grain, grass and a bit of corn. Taste is sweet malts, grain and a grassy finish. Medium bodied. nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2009
12oz bottle. The color is a tan-orange, which immediately strikes me as un-Kolschlike. The aroma is mild and sweet. Not a bad beer, just misses the style. Not unlike an Amber really. Hmm. Some interesting smooth malty tones going on, quite earthy. Almost more of a hoppy light Alt. Disappointing, especially if you are looking for a crisp, light beer. I think it’s about time team Cape Ann took a trip to the Rhineland. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a honey amber body with a white head. Some mild sticky floral notes, some earth and hints of hop bitterness. Some tea or tannic bitterness. BroSpud (2282) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Not bad, though not really worth seeking out either. Have not seen this one very widely available so thought I would give it a try when I did. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Slightly hazy amber color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is full of floral and bitter hops, some earthen notes, and a light citrus hint mixed with toasted malts. Smells more like a pale ale. Flavor is oddly tangy at the beginning but then gives way to a smooth and floral hop bite. The malts take a back seat to the bitterness as the hops roll through the flavor. Very mild however. The finish is bitter and earthy with some hints of grass. The bitterness lingers for a while. Not bad.
