The bartender in Chicago described this brew as "one of [his] staple ales." I wasn’t too impressed, however. The hops was a bit overly bitter. Don’t get me wrong--I like bitter if it’s done right. I just didn’t think it balanced out well with the rest of the brew. An OK pale ale, but I’d have others first, for sure. reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 Copper pour from 12oz. bottle. Crisp and clear, an excellent session beer. Nothing too brazen, nothing awful. gpekar (497) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Poured a clear bright copper color with a tall foamy beige head initially. The head reduced to just a film rather quickly. The color of the beer was so nice I still gave it a 4 for appearance even though the head hardly lasted at all. There was a mild caramal malt aroma with a lesser amount of citrus hops and just a hint of an earthy peat scent. There were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The beer has a clean crisp taste and slightly dry. A caramal malt flavor is mild followed by a mild hops bite. The hops lingers into the finish which becomes very mild.

Drank from bottle at Marriott Airport St Louis. Tough to tell aroma. Taste is pretty simple: bready malt, some sweetness and metallic flavor, but kinda boring.

Boring beer. Pours a light copper with very little head. Smells of some malt, but not much transfers to flavor. Very thin and mostly bland. Not bad, and quite drinkable, just not very interesting.

From tap. Pours copper with decent head. Aroma was bread, citrus and spice. Taste was a mild malt and hop combo that was lacking. ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2013
On tap at Johnny’s Pizza. Pours a clear dark amber with a foamy white head. Tons of lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma of pale malts and vomit. Taste is of straw, grain, pale malts, caramel, and bitter hops. Bitter finish fsbw21086 (481) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Earthy and citrus flavors meet to create a medium bodied very drinkable ale. Bottle in oak bluffs ma biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Poured a dark orange color with decent white head that stayed a while and left good lacing. Has a nice spicy hop aroma to it. Flavor is a nice blend of hop spicyness and maltiness. Mouthfeel is a velvety pleasantness. I really enjoyed this beer and would have again. Drinkability is high.
