12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a white head. Somewhat sweet nose of biscuit and orange, a bit bready. Citrusy orange and light grapefruit flavors, some light caramel. Nice spiderweb lace. Good pale. jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Light orange in color, somewhat of a head, didn’t pour a full glass as I was sharing with 3 others. Not a huge nose, just a basic smell of hops. Overall a pretty average pale ale. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Pretty weak. Pours a pale orange color with a medium sized bubbly head. Smooth hoppy and dry taste with a short finish and medium body. Nothing really special but still decent. Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle: Another above average from Founders. Not nearly as good as their Harvest Ale, but a good pale ale. Pours with a full head and aroma of hops. Flavor is a little light for a pale ale in my opinion, but not bad. Citris is a little too weak. Good beer. illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2007
12oz bottle. Big, off-white head, excellent lacing. Nice influence from the cascade hops, elements of citrus, pepper, orange peel. Packs a bit of a punch at 6.2%. Seems almost like an IPA, but it’s too smooth in the finish. That said, I definitely like it. Good offering, very good for the style.

hazy gold small head not much by way of lacing. Bland aroma. citrusy flavor with a bitter finish axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Pours a medium cloudy, orange body with a soapy white head. Aroma is lemongrass and black pepper with some mild citrus. The flavor is quite peppery with notes of citrus and a little floral taste. Very dry finish. emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Trade with dra19. Pours a soft amber with a huge thick white head. Very profuse head, doesn’t make any sense. The aroma is light sweet citrus, lemongrass, very light aroma. The flavor is a bit dry, mandarin orange peel, highly carbonated, Cascades aparent. Light macro taste, very light but distinguishable. Dry finish and a fairly lasting waxy finish. aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Trade with dra19. The color was light orange with a lot of carbonation. The head was thick, foamy, frothy, and off-white. The aroma was citrisy and hoppy. The flavor was cascade hops, a waxyness, light citris and floral. The palate was average. The finish was clean. TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2007
3 of these bottles I bought were all fizz. Horrid buttery/diactly taste on those. The other 3 were ok. Not bad, but not great. I’ll have to get ahold of a fresh sixer...
