3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold, off-white head. Light aroma, a little hoppy. Strong bitter, more like an IPA than a pale ale. Grapefruit and floral flavor. Bitter finish.
355ml bottle. A crappy pale ale, watery and thin in flavor, hint of citrus, some stale malt. Frank (4259) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2016
This is on the mild side for the style but it is pretty tasty. It’s cloudy orange w/ a long lived white head. It smells of citrus, pine and mango and has a nice juicy consistency with mild carbonation. The best beers of this style really have a much more vibrant fruity hop nose to them and I could deal w/ a bit more bitterness in the finish but this isn’t bad overall. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Thus is a nice slightly cloudy copper colored beer. It has a small white head and a nice hippy aroma. A good pale ale

Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy white head. It smells just lightly hoppy with some light floral notes over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is a bit thin and weak, minimal leafy hops, light bitterness, fairly thin caramel malt base. Not quite the malt bill that does it for me, it comes across as a bit sweet, with a slightly husky note towards the finish. Lighter bodied but still a bit clingy on the finish with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a little bland and thin, even for an APA. sturmthis (1195) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2014
On tap. Cooper/ dark orange color with thin head. Slight grapefruit and malt aroma. Taste is similar and ends bitter. Decent.

Bottle. Dark straw pour with off-white head. Nose is corn flakey pale malt, not much else, Tastes of pale malt, mild hops, and a watery finish. can8ianben (1602) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Crisp and refreshing. Pleasant hop aroma and dry bitterness. Almost a pilsner-like quality to this one. Cakes (498) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
12 oz bottle.
A darker looking pale ale. A little "beefier" - more filling than most pale ales. Not at all watery. I think that the reviewers have been rating this a little low by the look of their scores. This is not a run of the mill pale ale. A nice caramel flavor with euro-pils malts to create a rich amber look. A foamy head with nice lacing. A good looking beer. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma smells like a biscuity lager. The taste is biscuit, dry, light grain, almost no hop. This blows, honestly. jjgmd (2294) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small wispy head. Nose is grainy and somewhat malty. A bitter grainy taste without much in the flavor department. Finish is bitter and ends rather boringly. Quaff Score 6 / 10
