Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average andd a decent amount of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Grainy and lightly bready malts. Some toastiness and light neutral malt sweetness. Barely perceptible earthy hoppiness.
3.0 T: Tastes like the nose. Mainly grainy with some breadiness. Toasty with a moderate sweetness and light earthy hops.
3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Perhaps a touch too much carbonation. Neither very creamy nor crisp.
3.0 D: Not bad, but screams average throughout.

A very good example of the style. ours amber with a small head, The aroma is floral, earthy, and a bit of hops. The flavor has a great beer base with an assertive hop profile. Crisp and clean on the finish. DocLock (10841) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012

Pale golden color. Great lacing. No head. Dank hops in the aroma. Taste is very hoppy. No citrus but lots of grass and pine. Very easy drink. I liked this one and could make it an all day session-er.

12 oz bottle. Average color and aroma but very good taste. Would definitely have again Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/27/09. Poured into a mug. Pours a clear dark orange with a thin off-white head on top. Retention was lacking. Left very little lace. Scents of earthy hops, light orange, and biscuits. Full crisp body. Flavor was a little harsh and overly spicy. Bitterness was lingering and charring. This wasn’t the best representation of the style. It was decent, just not my thing.

12oz bottle. Rating #120. Dark amber with a little gold to brighten it up, nice sticky white head that left some good lacing. Nice piney aroma with a little sweetness. Above average bitterness, a little tropical with some more pine and a nice malty sweetness. Tasty stuff. (2296) hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2012
