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.

DocLock (11112) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours chill hazy golden with 2-finger white head. Nose is dry spicy florals, Saazy hops, lemongrass, white pepper. Nice, complex nose here. Tastes floral, very hoppy and spicy, crisp, white peppery, with Saaz hops, lemongrassy notes, pale malt. Finishes crisp, lively, hoppy, floral and spicy. Really good, and would be a pleasure to session on a hot spring/summer day.

blipp (9794) - 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.

Svesse (8831) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2012
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 31 March 2012) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of citrus, grass, tropical fruit and passion-fruit. Malty, hoppy taste with citrus, grass, pale ale malt and a generous grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Could have been a bit thin, but the fresh and generous hop character makes it quite enjoyable.

3.9
FROTHINGSLOSH (8184) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2013
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!

3.2
Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a tall, fluffy cap of sticky white head. The aroma picked up lemon rind and dusty earth over soft pale malts.. not a whole lot going on, but it was alright. The flavor opened a little tart and bitter, with lemon leading.. soft pale malts and a pinch of honey at the core.. lemon zest and grassy notes around.. finished tangy, with lots of residual bitters. Light-bodied and crisp on the palate.. higher carbonation.. very drinkable and kinda refreshing.
