On tap at Tupelo Honey Cafe in Asheville. Light gold color, with a small, off-white head and great lacing. Aroma of honeysuckle, pine trees, light brown sugar, and white bread. The flavor is sweet, with a fairly strong bitterness. Medium body, chewy, and a little chalky. This is not a bad pale ale, but nothing memorable or special, and not very refreshing or quaffable. Meh.

From draft at brewery. Pours a yellow straw color, clear with no head. Aroma was very light pine and citrus hops. Taste followed with light malt, finished bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the Chapel Hill brewpub. Homecoming! Pours a clear lighter gold. Webby white lacing. Neutral nose. Taste is almost nothing (?). Corn chips, paper, biscuit. Strange. Almost pilsner like maltiness. Inoffensive. Not on style whatsoever. Wrong malt and hop bill. Could be mistaken for pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the brewery. I have no idea why this is rated so low. It’s not amazing by any stretch, but it’s solid, cleanly hoppy and quite sessionable. It leans on the toasty, fruity side with a sharp grassy, piney hop bite. The finish is appropriately bittersweet. Solid for the style.

Suttree (6505) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Orangey brown, thin white head. Toasty, piney aroma. Malty flavors up front, Bready and toasty. Nice hop finish. Pretty simple, really, and a nice dinner beer.

On tap. Clear pale amber pour with a thin white head. Scent is citrus, floral and earthy. Taste is bitter with pine, citrus and earthy notes. Good

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Light straw yellow color, minimal white head. Nose of doughy yeast and a touch of piney hops. To me, it tasted more like a pale lager that had been hopped like a light pale ale. It left a stale, sour taste in my mouth.

Growler. This beer just smelt like skunk period. And the taste wasn’t all that much better. 0 for 2 on Growlers from this place.

bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2010
(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus herbs, grain, and grass. Flavor of hops (grass, citrus, herbs, some pine), light cracker, and caramel with a moderately bitter finish.
