Kroger bottle. This one better be good. I’m irritable and could go for a good beer today. Aroma is meh. Light citrus, malt. Flavor is also meh. Very light, watery citrus, honey, roasted malt. Boring. raymow (1602) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
bottled - cloudy golden color. Slight hop and malt aromas. Decent hop flavor. oobawa (1301) - Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2017
Fairly weak pale, missing much of the sticky, Pacific Northwest Cascade hop loveliness they crow about on the label. Starts almost like a straight golden ale, apple esters and bright, biscuity malt adding a fruity, bread-n-butter front, only to see a mild floral bitterness round out the middle. Finishes dull, the hops adding a touch of piney bitterness but mainly rounding out a middlin’ beer. Texture’s a bit light, nose leans towards bready malt. Makes me appreciate Sierra Nevada Pale Ale all the more. LearninBeer (578) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2017
The aroma is a little hoppy - spruce. Pours a clear light yellow/orange with a small white head mostly diminishing and good lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is light, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. A good beer. malvrich (319) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle filled 6/2 so almost 5 months old. Tulip.
A: Pours a finely hazed orange gold with rapidly falling bubbly head but lasting ring. Active bubbles and falling sheets of lace.
S: A light scent of pine and sweet tangerine zest.
T: Bitter pine quickly overtaken by bitter/sweet orange pith and flesh. Lingering pith, zest bitterness along with malt toast.
M: Light thin body with crisp carbonation and dry clean finish. No resin.
O: Not exceptional but a very nice pale ale widely available and well priced = easily recommended.

Drink from bottle. Smell of citrus, hop, slight malt and fragrance. Taste well for summer, fresh and light with Citrus sourness. Slightly IPA bitterness, not best but not bad. I feel a bit underrated here. hman43 (1540) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2016
It pours golden with an off white head. It is clear. It has aromas of citrus, grass, and bread. It has a sweet taste with citrus and grassy flavors. There is also a fair amount of breadiness about it. It has a moderate feel to it and finishes moderately bitter. Overall, it is a sweet ale with citrus and malt flavors in balance. DarkSong (374) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2016
It pours a orange color with a small white quickly vanishing head. It has a caramel & bread aroma. It has a bready taste with a touch of bitterness and maybe a little orange flavor. I enjoyed this beer.. OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2016
Faint citrus nose and taste. Nice malt to back it up. Nice easy drinking summer type ale that is not overwhelming. Made for the masses.

Poured from bottle.
Aroma of malt and some hops.
Appearance is gold Amber with slight lacing.
Tasting floral and grassy hops with caramel, malt and a wee bit of pepper.
Palate is just right in carbonation - good drinkability
Overall, a good choice. Could be decent session brew.
