A subdued aroma of caramel and floral hops. Pours a clear gold color with a short lasting white head with great lacing. A pleasant taste of caramel slightly sweet with a medium body and a mildly bitter finish. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2015
On tap at Bandito Barney’s. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is toast and citrus. Taste is a little more toast, light pine, and a little citrus. Atom (2593) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Enjoyed at a lake front bar in chicago, pours a murky Amber/orange with a large khaki head. Sweet fruity hop aroma, berries and lightly tropical, mild spice and solid caramel malt. Taste similar to aroma, light spicy hop bitterness well balanced with caramel malt backbone. Straightforward and balanced, pretty nice. RobertDale (6977) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 29, 2015

This crisp, fresh and fluffy Pale Ale showcases inviting straw-like cereals upon which herbal hops add zest.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam covers the misty blond.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-Drinkability on this one is as high as a good Pilsener’s.
-I don’t know if this beer is always in prime form like it was that day, but it can sure be a beaut’ once in a while, at the very least.
On tap at the brewery.
Some citrus aroma. Pours golden with ok head. Light bitter finish. Easy to drink. Tap at a pizza place in Chicago. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2015
At Day of the living Ales. Way better than that disaster of a hop #6142 or #6001 or even #5248, and let’s not mention, #4548. What I did like was that it was piney and herbal and grassy depending on when in the drink. Nice. Serving: Caskscarletfire65 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015

On tap a Fizz. Very easy drinking but rather thin ale. Not too flavorful. Serving: Tap
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Draft at Fado in Chicago. Average pale ale with grassy hops and obvious honey notes. Dry, perfumey finish. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
On tap @ Goose Island O’Hare. Hazed golden pour with white foam. Really grassy hop nose. A little bit of citrus character and some leafy, floral hops. Kind of soapy. Fair amount of bready malt as well. There’s a lot of bready, malty sweetness to the flavor and somewhat of a muddled, unimpressive hop character. Mostly just dominated by the grassy hops. Lightly bitter.
