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.

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours turbid orangy with dark straw bottom edge and frothy, well-retained off-white head. Nose is earthy hops, citrus, mild florals. Tastes hoppy, citric, somewhat earthy and caramelly. Finishes bitter.

MaltOne (389) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours medium gold, with a slight haze.Moderate white head. Aroma is mostly hops, with a slight citrus note. flavor is resin, citrus pith. Palate is quite dry, hop bitter is dominate, though a malt framework makes it smooth and drinkable. Crisp, refreshing. Good hot day thirst quencher. Nothing special.

Drat at Baggataway, Pours amber with tan head and great lace. Notes of toffee, light roasted malt, some hop aromas and flavor - grass, pine, light citrus. Decent hop bitterness on the finish but not enough hop flavor for my taste.

Crisp hoppy aroma. Floral. Deep golden color. Light carbonation. Thin, wispy head. The taste is a nice balance of hops and malt. Not as bitter as the label would lead you to believe. Balanced. Neither the malt or the hops is aggressive. A nice drinkable beer. Well made.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2006
Central Waters managed to make this rather pedestrian style quite palatable. Cloudy amber body under a thick, frothy off-white head. Aroma was of bread dough, citrus/pine hops, lots of malt, caramel. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Some sweetness to the taste, well-balanced, malt and hops. Very nice.

Got this one as part of the sampler at the brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Not particularly bitter for a pale, but pretty good beer. Dark yellow pour with a thin head, light nose of lemon and flowers, mild bitterness and hoppiness. Okay.

Clear copper with a white head. The aroma is of earthy hops and biscuits or crackers. Same flavors. Medium body.

Deep, slightly hazy copper color with a nice white head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by hops with a bitter finish and hints of caramel and grape fruit.
