Fruity hop aroma. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance pale and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a bitter malt finish. nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2011
The aroma does not make one think that anything special is coming. It’s got grassy hops and a dull clean maltiness. The appearance is deep gold with a small head. The taste makes up for a lack of aroma with a big sweet malt punch to balance a robust hop quality. The palate is thick and smooth. Overall a very good beer!

On tap at CBBC. Pours clear gold with a big white head. Nose is malt, caramel, grass, hops, and citrus. Flavor is sweet caramel, malt, bitter grapefruit, and citrus. Medium-bodied with lingering bitter citrus in the finish. Nice pale. BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap at CBBC, pours cloudy amber. Unexpected, but very nice bitterness that pushes through a solid malt base for a pale. Medium bodied with medium bitterness, on top of a light carbonation with a nice finish with a touch of bitterness to wrap it up. Overall another good drinkable beer for the Florida heat.

Draft @ FBGBF ’010. Pours hazy deep gold with copper core and off white head to go along with a little bit of spotty lacing. The aroma is faint with just a sense of malts and little else gong on. The taste is kind of refreshing with citrus hops tartness moving into sugary maltiness. I’m not sure what this is but I’m not sure it’s a pale ale. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2010
