buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Pours a hazy orange with a small head. Pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of mild citrus and floral notes. The flavor seems to have a little of everything. Malt, hops, citrus.... Very very nice ale.

vyvvy (6124) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Pours clear medium dark orange with a moderate sized white head that gives nice lacing. Aromas is very balanced with semi-sweet malt and perfumey / floral hops. Medium bodied with fairly fizzy carbonation. Starts lightly sweet malt with spicy hops. The spicy hops become more dominant in the finish. Sharp and crisp beer, nicely done.

TBone (16580) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Bottled. Deep honey golden, small white head. Bready malty aroma. Bready, hoppy, lingering aftertaste. Very standard APA - balanced and drinkable one anyhow.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2006
bottle - Pours amber with a moderate head. Some lightly roasted malts and the hops make for a nice aroma. The flavor is well balanced with a dry, hoppy finish and the palate is medium bodied. Its not bad at all. Its a good session brew, though be aware that the flavor is a bit different for the classification of American pale ale. I thought it tasted much more like an ESB than a typical APA.

SGTHibbert (100) - Perry, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Heavy malt, caramel, and milk shocolate, moderate hoppiness of flowers and pine, oak, toffee, honey, syrup, and alcohol. Head was small, off white mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet and acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. Overall a very excellent Pale Ale.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2006
On tap 7/15 @ "The Second City" comedy theater in Chicago. Pours amber in color with a thin off-white head that diminishes rather quickly. Aroma has hints of a floral hops with some spices. Flavor is sweet and malty with a mild bitter finish. I found this well balanced and easy drinking since I had several pints during the comedy revue.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Pours a nice amber color with medium head and a little bit of lacing. A mix of flowery hops and caramel malt in the aroma. The malt flavor comes out when I take a drink. Easy drinking, nice on the palate.
