HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
12oz bottle, courtesy of - I think - ImperialJohn. Quite a hazy orange-deep amber pour, huge lasting fizzy white head. Only modestly hoppy aroma (more light resin and some dry herbalness) - lush cereal grain though, very nice (7+). Taste is pretty meh - less grain, some alcohol, a bit of metal .... ehh. Farly thick, somewhat undercarbonated, a little harsh in the finish - half decent, would have it on draught.

Patrickctenchi (6371) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Pours hazy orange-amber-gold with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is malty, caramel, orange-peel, pine. Flavour is soft caramel with an easy hop bitter... Deep pine, resin. Very pleasant.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2009
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.

ClarkVV (6215) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2004
2004 bottle @ the gathering. Deep yellow-gold, mostly clear, small white head. Aroma of metal, hay, floral hops, sour yeast. Flavor is metallic and hoppy, very flowery and bitter, with no malt to speak of and then a watery death for the finish. Medium-light body, over-carbonated. Cant find much use in drinking this.

Boutip (6131) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2008
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.

ben4321 (6071) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Charleston Beer Works, 12/8/12

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 Impression: 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 doesnt come off clean at all, and the metallic feel takes away from the enjoyment. I didnt hate it, but it was a mediocre at best example of the style for me.

decaturstevo (6022) - 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.

jgb9348 (5989) - 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! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle on 02-November-2003.

Ernesto987 (5832) - Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle, its just your typical malty hopless pale ale with a dry bittering finish. Falls into the sea of mediocracy.

burg326 (5411) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a light orangish color with aromas of light fruit, some caramel and slme biscuit. Flavors are the same light fruit and citrus linger on the palate a decent pale ale overall.
