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.
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 (961) - 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 (12341) - 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 (1004) - 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". merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2014
