To borrow a word from the brewer’s own description, I think "balanced" is a nice way to describe this ale. It may not blow your socks off, but it’s an agreeable, smooth, and drinkable beer that’s sort of like an old friend. A fine intro to American pale ales.

Hazy amber colour with an off white head. Malty and fruity aroma with a light caramel sweetness and a hoppy citric note. Malty and fruity flavor with a light hoppy fruityness and a dry finish. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2006

Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a off-white head. Light caramel, spicy, fruity aroma and a thin dry, fruity taste. Light body with a sweet thin dry, perfumed finish. madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light beige head.. Sweet and light caramelly aroma. Flavour is sweet and a bit boring. Watery and thin. Has not much to offer in the end.

Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Sweet flavor with aromas of malts, caramel and hints of spices and sweet liquirish. Light bodied. Quite boring. joergen (29234) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Cloudy amber coloured with a white head.
Sweet aroma of fruits, spices and hops.
Flavour of fruits, spices and hops.
Hoppy finish. ABUSEDGOAT (2854) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Hazy amber body with a moderate to large head. Aroma is very fruity, lotsa light stuff in here. From peaches to oranges. Also notes of caramel, citrus, grapefruit, and some grass. While I thought the aroma was quite promising, this has a very mass produced taste to it. Light acidity and easy to drink, but didn’t live up to my expectations after the aroma. OK I guess. It’s a shame there were a zillion 6 packs of this and thier new Impy Stout was sold out. This beer definitely has the Southhampton Secret Ale thing going for it. ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Pineapple, spice and grapefruit aromas, some sweetness; well balanced, light bodied though flavorful; lightly bitter finish, fresh citrus and spiced hops; toasty and toffe leaning malt base. English bitter or APA, I don’t care, this is a very solid session brew. drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2006
The epitome of an average beer. Pours an orange/amber color with a good white head. Aroma of citrus with some sweetness. Flavor is nicely balanced between the hops and the sweetness of the malts, although the malts win out a bit. Very drinkable, but not particularly impressive.
