Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Pours a cloudy burnt gold/amber with a thin layer of head. Aroma is very earthy and hints of grain. Flavor is hops, undertones of caramel and floral. Body is light with a fair amount of carbonation.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2008
pours a slightly hazy amber, thin white head. A slightly grassy aroma. A nice hint of caramel and malt up front; quite a bit of hops in the finish, but theres a bit of cardboard quality to it. Starts good, finishes a bit unpleasant.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
Bottled. My former local brew is amber in colour with a floral aroma and a sweet flavour balanced by citrus hops including hints of orange. Pretty good.

renffisch (891) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
35,5cl bottle @ home. Dark amber colour, little white lace.very malty nose with a bit of hop. Bit bitter and really not much else, sorry.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled at Monks Caf, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear pale amber colour with a low creamy white foam. Fruity and caramely aroma of mandarin, floral hops and grass. Medium-bodied. Caramel, straw, raspberry jam, flowers and mild orange-peels in the flavour. Rather clean mouth feel. Medium bitter finish of red berries, resin and wet grass. Pretty nice one.

lucke13 (91) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Pours a nice brown with off white head. Smells of roasted coffee beans, and tastes delicious. Some caramel, but mostly hops with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Easy to drink, not exactly a risky beer. Not as hoppy as a true pale, but still has some bite. Living in the Chi I will obviously drink more, but I wont be going out of my way for it.

BelgianBeerGal (4014) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 Draught in Chicago. Amber colored with a white film on top and some lacing. Almost no aroma. The flavor was caramel and sweet hops. Decent.

BabyJoe692 (109) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Draft. Pours amber in color with white head. Has a malty begining and a nicely balanced but hoppy finish.

gunsho (134) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2008
ehh. thats the review and the sentiment. not much to write here. its true that its well balanced and a good introduction to the apa which can kill newcomers with overt hoppiness but it just doesnt do much for me.
