A: poured into a snifter. pours a nice slightly hazy yellow with an orange hue. nice ample white head on top. good retention and a really good amount of lacing.
S: Aroma of fresh cut grass and flowers. Nice corn malt aroma, along with a wonderful floral hop smell. some hints of honey and citrus.
T: Not like any Kolsch I have ever had. Such a nice floral and citrus hop flavor, but the malts are light like a Kolsch. Some hay and slight corn flavors, along with a hint of honey. Really interesting flavors.
M: a little bold for the style. carbonation is a little bit on the higher side. clean, crisp and refreshing.
D: very drinkable, even with the hoppier flavor. Actually, I kind of preferred this one over most Kolsch biers. Definitely worth a try.

Bière blonde rafraichissante, mousseuse et pétillante de type pilsener. Disponible au restaurant Terrace 1906 du Longwood Garden au Delaware joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Hazy gold, decent white head, aroma very nice and hoppy. Almost more like a pilsener than a blonde/gold. Flavor is solid - a hoppy bite that is smoothed out by some sweet malt. I think this beer is under-rated, and I love that fact that it is from Philadelphia! CptGreencoat (95) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2010
12 bottle as a gift from a friend in Philly. The light burnt out in my office room, so I have to judge this beer’s appearance from the glow of my monitor. Fuck yeah. Pours to a Miller Lite yellow with a one finger white head. Crystal clear. A small, spicy hop aroma and lightly toasted malts. It’s like smelling a great ESB from a foot away - the aromas are just barely there. I think this beer is excellent for it’s style. It’s got a beautiful bready malt character balanced by a crisp hop bite. It’s medium-light bodied and perfect for a hot sumer day (I’m typing this naked in a non-air conditioned midwstern house.) I’ll be sure to pick some up when I visit my friends in Philly. BREWMUSKCLES (2731) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2010
this is a pleasant brew, it has a nice and fruity aroma and taste that incorporates a decent zingy and peppery hop profile combined with a Belgian coriander and clove like mouthfeel and taste that could very well make Belgian golden brew lovers of us all. seemingly light in body and carbonation and without its own distinct place it still remains demonstrative and quite decent.

Poured gold with thin sheen of a white head. Aroma is skunky hops and taste is sweet and clean. Refreshing and would make a good session beer. Very easy to drink. jtclockwork (17101) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Very light bodied pale golden colored ale. Slight hop malt flavor is seriously lacking depth. Rated 8/14/08 swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 14, 2010
Draft. Pretty easy drinking medium blonde/ golden pour. Nice summer, lawnmower beer. Mild hops, almost kolsch like flavor. Decent Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2010
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer pours the expected straw-colored golden hue, with a moderate to large and dense white head. The nose brings characters first of some tropical fruit (perhaps a New Zealand variety of hop?) along with the more familiar earthy and herbal notes of traditional continental strains. The palate begins with a slightly grainy/bready note of malt sweetness, before moving into a noticeable bitterness, and a slightly fruity finish. Overall, given the relative simplicity of the style in terms of flavor and scent, I’d say this is a well-brewed version. italianjohn (3228) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Golden amber pour with white head .... aroma of fruit/spice and some breadiness .... taste of some spices, pilsner malt, a hoppy bite and some yeast .... a decent brew on a warm spring day but nothing spectacular
