Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a white fizzy head. Aroma is sweet sugar, easy floral hops and light malts. Flavor is dry, peanutty, light earthy hops, and malts. Not very hoppy but pretty flavorful.

Clear medium amber with a persistent head and splashes of lace. The taste is a crisp, clean caramel malt, followed with a light, but clear, hop finish. Doesnt sound like much, but it makes a fine, easy-drinking brew. Dont expect the world, just a good easy-drinking beer. Recommended.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent hazy orange looking color with a slight transparency about it that allowed a fair carbonation to be seen rising. There was less than a fingers worth of head. The smell was based around some light sweet pine with just a tad of light sweet caramel malt. The taste was mainly sweet around the piney hops and sweet caramel malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Theres nothing off and theres nothing spectacular about it. Overall, an everyday APA worthy of having again and would probably be a pretty good pizza beer.

Pours a deep golden color with a small head.

The aroma is lightly sweet with a nice citrus forward fruitiness. Very clean smelling, not particularly brilliant but nice smelling.

The flavor is spicy, fruity, and dry with a nice hop bitterness, & some light citrus character. The maltiness is crisp and clean, and particularly noticeable. All together the flavor is perfectly balanced, Everything is in its right place.

Im guessing this bottle was about as fresh as possibly because this was pretty nice tasting. I can see how it might not last so well if left too long on the shelf.

Golden pour with some head. Aroma has a slight impression of hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is light citrus, a bit of poop, and some maltiness. Its ok.

bottle, very old notes - Pours light copper-amber with a quickly fading one finger head. It has a mild hoppy aroma. The flavor is sweet malt with a little caramel and perhaps a touch of citrus. Its bland and not very crisp. Mediocre to average beer.

12 oz twist off capped bottle sent to me by my winter 2009 Secret Santa. Pour is ever so slight haze golden yellow with a one inch white head that falls with big bubbles and some light lacing. Aroma of some faint orange and vanilla sweetness, along with only a whisper of dusty toasty grain. Taste is the dustcy tasted garin malt up front, followed by a sharp sweet orange fruit and bitter orange peel, finishing with a bit of a cardboard dirtiness. Palate is medium to thin bodies, above average carbonation, and a lingering wet cardboard aftertaste. I think there is a decent beer in here somewhere, but its lost in the dusty cardboard - perhaps too much travel or age? Even still, its an easy drinking beer and I had no trouble finishing it. Thanks for sending this one my way Santa.

sampled on tap during the tasting portion of their tour, i didnt take much notes but almost all the beers tasted extremely similar. i found this to be nicely hopped with a toasted biscuit finish. decent.

Yellow with quickly diminishing head. Citrus mixed with pine in the aroma. More of the same in the taste. Nice dry sweet fruit finish. Solid APA.

12/01/2007: U.S. Pale Ale has a "pretty" (according to my wife) golden color. It is extremely clear and has a moderate level of carbonation and a fluffy off-white head. Sweet honey malt and some floral hops blossom out of the aroma. The flavor is adequately hoppy for an American Pale Ale. There are lots hop flavors including floral, pine, and hints of grassy and spicy hops (noble-like) along with some honey and pale malt notes throughout. The body of this beer is medium and it is smooth and pretty soft and mellow on the palate. Overall this is a solid American Pale Ale. It is quite flavorful and refreshing without being too heavy, hoppy, or bitter.

12 fl. oz. bottle from buckybeer. Thanks Mark! Rating #18 for this beer...
