Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with kmweaver. Pours a hazy light orangish amber brew with a thick creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film. Aroma has a pleasant sweet citrus peel scent with caramel malt, some orange and flowery hops. Taste is slightly carbonated, smooth, medium bodied with a citrusy bread flavor. Finish is lightly sweet, citrusy with a lingering dry bitter aftertaste. I agree. I must have this the next time I order hard shell crabs in Baltimore. afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2009
On cask, served in a nonic pint glass. Hazy gold with a large creamy head. Lots of English fruity character, some grass, and a bit of citrus as well. Maintains balance throughout. Nothing spectacular but I had no problem polishing off 20oz of it. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 9, 2009
THOUGHTS: It was OK., but nothing memorable. A little British. It got better as it warmed.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium amber with a small, slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was light caramel malt, moderate floral, herbal, grassy and earthy hops along with some lemon. The initial flavor was sweet and acidic; while the finish was sour, acidic and bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, earthy and grassy hops, some lemon and honey. The medium body was like watery syrup and then it was dry with a fizzy and tingly carbonation and a dry and light to moderately astringent finish.

Pours an amber golden body with a white head. Nutty bready corn flavors some earthy bitterness. Crisp thin and watered down. eh. adrian910ss (2572) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle picked up at a bottle shop in MD with Tim. Pours a nice clear coppery gold with a small white head. Aroma of light fruit and tangy hops with a hint of candied sugar. Taste is mildly tangy with hints of citrus, hops and candied sugar. Not bad.

This is a Pale Ale work of art. Watched a sixtel of this disappear at a party of mostly non-beer-drinkers! Smooth but not simplistic this PA gives a LOT of bang for the buck. Has become a staple around the WII system and seems perfect for a football/baseball/soccer tailgate. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Aroma of some citrus and pine. Taste is flavorful almost juicy. Well balanced and good hops. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells earthy with some tea hints. Tastes doughy and lightly citrussy with some earthiness and a hint of pepper on the finish. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Citrus, bread, and metallic aroma notes. Golden, frothy white head, and carbonated. Citrus, floral, bread, and metallic flavours. Medium body, with bitter finish. llcooldave (1212) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Hoppy aroma right out of the bottle. Piney/soapy aroma. Slightly cloudy in appearance. Amber in color with a touch of copper. Light and bubbly on the palate, flavor is a nice clean upfront bitter hops. Definitely has floral notes to it. Finishes clean. Overall this is a nice find. I’d drink this more often if it was available down here in Texas.
