COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fathers of our nation were very fond of a good tankard of ale. Dozens of Philadelphia breweries lubricated the age of reason, moving men toward an egalitarian philosophy, a rational government, and enlightened experiments in science. But things weren’t perfect by any means - The Liberty Bell had to wait out the British occupation of Philadelphia by hiding in Allentown, and poor Mr. Franklin had to routinely wait out beautiful weather to "wet the kite twine so that it can conduct the electric fire freely." Alas, let’s raise a pint, and hope it is always sunny ... wherever you are.

Aurelius (5590) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Mostly clear, honey gold with a big head. Standard longneck, comical label. Hoppy, very fruity kumquat aroma - tart and sweet. Malty, woody, medium sweetness, tangy. Mouthy with a sweet finish, which also has some grassiness. Thanks to LuckyDog for pulling this back from his Atlantic coast swing.

MattShizzle (618) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle - from sampler pack. Light copper color - cloudy. HUGE head. Clean, slightly hoppy aroma. Pretty good. Hoppy, but definitely overcarbonated. Not the best flavored hops, either.

keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Nice pale for the warm days. Pours clear amber with a thin head. The aroma is mostly citrus and a little pine and some sweet malt. The flavor follows with a very dry and refreshing finish

snoworsummer (6158) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours clear medium brown with a frothy white head and lots of lacing. Smells nutty, malty, bready, slightly sweet. Tastes malty, nutty, and like apricot. Sweet and a little tart. Light body and low carbonation.

sonnycheeba (6439) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Growler. Pours mostly clear amber with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, light caramel, light floral notes, light dates, and some faint toast. Flavor is bready malts quickly followed by sharp hop bitterness and some light stone fruit esters; dry finish with some lingering grapefruit bitterness. Medium body and low carbonation.

3.1
Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Has a bit of a citrus aroma. Taste is a hint of hops, some citrus and spice. Pretty average

3.5
kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear gold body with a small creamy white head that had pretty good retention. Big floral and citrusy hop nose with just a slight caramel malt base. Very clean and fresh smelling. The flavor is a little less clean, the malt is a bit too cereal grain like. Light bitterness with some citrusy notes. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, lingering bitter finish. Not bad, gets better the more you drink, the bitterness tends to linger and build, covering the cereal graininess.

3.7
blipp (9790) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. This was a weird beer, I can’t imagine this tasted how the brewer really intended. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it. Pours hazy golden orange with a big off white head. Light flowery and fruity hops, pale and bready malts, some light rustic yeasty and earthy notes, and a floral finish. Odd, I don’t think the weird, almost saison-esque (but not really) yeasty notes are intentional, and the hop profile kind of tows the line between american and english pale ales. But it was well balanced all around and really quite drinkable. I wish a had another bottle to stick on the fridge for a couple months, because I bet whatever the hell yeast got into this to make it so interesting now is gonna make it pretty awful in due course.

3.3
callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Slightly hazy golden-orange body, solid white head, spotty lacing. Light citric and grassy hops, light cracker and bread. Flavor is pleasant and simple, with a similar profile to the nose. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, a little thin, light bitterness.
