UPDATED: DEC 16, 2016 Bottle. Orange-amber with a thin but foamy top; wispy aroma of a hop flower, the flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer. Well done. (#2816, 4/22/2007) ben4321 (6769) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Charleston Beer Works, 12/8/12 Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Aroma: The nose has lots of sweet malts, some caramel, fruity notes, yeast, and toffee
Appearance: This one pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color, with a foam laced off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty sweet, with some fruity notes, and a slightly metallic bitterness
Palate: This beer has a medium body, with a soft carbonation, and a lengthy, off, metallic finish
Overall, this one was not a favorite for me. It is missing any of the wanted citrus or resiny hop bitterness that one might enjoy in this style. Also, it just doesn’t come off clean at all, and the metallic feel takes away from the enjoyment. I didn’t hate it, but it was a mediocre at best example of the style for me.
Pours hazy orange-amber-gold with a creamy light tan head. blutt59 (6585) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2012

On tap at CHS, orange golden color with slight foam, aroma is hoppy citrus with flavors of sweet tangerines, piney caramel and good sour almost salty finish BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Thanks Matt for the beer: Orangy amber hue with good frothy light brown head and good lace. Aroma hinted of buttered toast, piney and floral hops, mild fruit and spice. The taste starts smooth and sweet with nice malt presense. The finish added a touch of pine and bitterness, hint of spice as well. Overall, this is a quaffable brew that you can drink two or three of in a session.

Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a small head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt is somewhat weak. Taste is dominated by some light caramel malt with no discernable hops presence. Full body with some medium to low carbonation. I guess this one is OK but nothing truly extraordinary. jgb9348 (6511) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Copper colour with orange highlights and an off-white head. Nice aroma of hops, malt and even some nutmeg. Medium-bodied; Strong medicinal taste initially, followed by some malt and stale hops. Aftertaste has more astringent taste and a sort of hoppy ending. Overall, a good beer...needs some work though! I owe a large thanks to Mabdoney for this one...cheers Matt!

Pours copper wit a thin tan head. Smells of caramel, some earthy splashes, spicy. Tstes peppery and spicy with some earthy notes and a dry finish. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a clean golen orange with a good head and nice lacing. A nice not to grassy hops and malt aroma. Beer had a smooth creamy palate with good smooth carbonation not fizzy at all. A good taste of malt and hops with a lingering bitter that I like much. A really good beer for the style. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle, it’s just your typical malty hopless pale ale with a dry bittering finish. Falls into the sea of mediocracy.
