Aroma was sweet malts. Color was light gold. Taste was an unbalance sweetness to bitterness without much hop profile. jjgmd (2180) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Pours a hazy rusty golden color with a small white frothy head. Aroma is sweet and slightly malty. Malty sweet flavor but somewhat flat, very slight bitterness if any. Finish is short and dry. Watery ! A little disappointing from LLB, this will remain a stranger for me, unless I am very very thirsty to quaff it down.

Pours a hazy orange with a white head and a sweet, citrusy aroma. Taste is of balanced sweet malts and hops with some fruit notes as well, with a dry finish. Standard, light pale ale. tmoreau (4428) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2012
12 oz. bottle poured to a czech-pils glass, with a clear, orange/golden color, a nice layer of bubbles & cream, off white head foam, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was light cereal grain, fruit and citrus, and a slight bit of sweetness. The flavor added to these some medium & rounded hop bitterness, good carbonation, light to medium body, and a clean & crisp finish. Just on the fence from being a decent intro IPA. seymour (2057) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Tasted at the St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured an amber color with creamy off-white foam and some lace. Fairly typical, nondescript, hoppy pale ale aroma. Complex malt flavor with a restrained, tangy hops bitterness. Light-medium body, average carbonation, fruity aftertaste. Tasty and well-balanced, but not especially memorable.

Clear slightly dark golden in color with a thin foamy white head. Nose of biscuity pale malts and toast...very English and plain aroma, and I mean that in the best way possible. Taste was biscuity and citrusy, being both mildly bitter and mildly sweet. A perfect session pale ale with loads of pale cereal grain tones alongside a firm citrusy hop tone and some bready toast. The whole package is medium on body but also medium on flavor, being perfect for a casual sipper, citrusy and slightly rye-spicy. Nice pale ale essence with an everyday simplicity that’s slightly complex when you want to dive into it. Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2012
Tap @ Cardinal. Pours a white head, golden-light amber in color. The aroma is very "standard" for an american pale ale. Citrusy and fresh in the aroma. Generally a smooth drinking pale ale, like most others. All in all a decent ale. AndreaDel (56) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 24, 2012
bottle. Golden color and light white head. Nice fruity aroma, very dry mouth feel and very light body. Extremely drinkable but a bit too dry. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Pours pale yellow with a thin off white clumpy head. Nose is dust, floral hops, leather, malt. Sour maltiness in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel. Watery. Not much fun, and I really like most Left Hand stuff. gunnar (9214) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2012
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy gold/amber with a small creamy white head. Very interesting sweet fruity and flowery hop aroma with some green apples as well. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter fruity hops, reminds me of the good british ipa, nothing over the top, just good all over.
