3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy apricot color with a huge foamy yellow-white head that faded fairly quickly and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy sugar, honey, pineapple, lemon and grapefruit. The flavor was sweet and tangy sugar, pineapple, grapefruit, bread and a hint of pepper. Long sweet pineapple and grapefruit finish. Medium body. Excellent!
Taste of Belgian yeast and light lemon drop. A zingy hop bite towards end. Pretty clean on palate and squeaky. Not too bad.

It pours a hazy golden color with some lacing. It has pale hops aromas that feature a bit of resin and grass. The taste is fairly non descriptive with the hops flavoring in that nothing really stands out. It has a high amount of carbonation. Dacrza (976) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Date: July 9, 2015... Glassware: Barley Creek pint... Occasion: sitting in between storms, enjoying thirsty Thursday with me, myself, and I... Appearance: a darker amber body than expected--considering its name--with little effervescence; off-white head pours thin but creamy, flattening to a reasonable quarter-inch; ling becomes sporadic but visible.... Aroma: pleasant lemon, citrus and freshly mowed hay; aromas are faint and suggest little malt presence or balance; some odd funk catches at the profile’s end, turning a decent allure to a debatable one.... Palate: smooth, fizzy at the throat and a bit warming; creamy at the start, with a little sizzle at the teeth--thin in the middle, with an equally soft aftertaste... Taste: lemon zest battles some earthy, malty undercurrents--both may be losing; light bitterness cannot create a strong profile, though the citric hints of grapefruit and melon give the tastebuds something to contemplate--not a pale ale with a vast array of talent; the faint hint of flowers at the back end does leave me with a desire of another sip... Overall: Not sure how proud Franklin would be knowing he adorned this bottle--Yards offered a much better brew for Ben’s image to plug; a decent beer to compliment chips or pretzels, but not much else to say...should I end up in Allentown, I would definitely try Fegley’s other offerings before coming back to this...

bottled - nice color but odd flavor. Is that hops? citrus? Not sure - almost tastes like stale hops but I may have an old bottle hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2014

A decent pale ale, nothing special though. Somewhat hoppy, but just average. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bubbly bottle... gold with off white head and prominent pine aroma. Resinous pine flavor with some malt to support. A job well done. jmm635 (1009) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Poured golden-orange in color with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops and not much else. Pretty one dimensional and rough around the edges. Tastes "amateurish". Voodoo (666) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with a pillowy white head which lingers. Aroma is pine, citrus, sweet maltiness. Taste is pine, grainy woodiness, faded maltiness and sweetness, a bit harsh on the aftertaste of biscuit and soggy grain. This needs to be smoothed out. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2014
