On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that lasts. The aroma is earth and pine. Medium body earth, citrus, lingering bitterness, good.

Draft with a bottle chilling. Pours dark straw with white head. Nose is lemongrassy hops, pale malt with some slight fruit and peppery notes. Tastes pale malty, with slight caro syrupy hints, decent citric hops, mild florals and peppery notes, and a smooth finish.

12 ounce thanks to, I think, McGrupp612. Malty and slightly crisp. No pronounced flavor. Caramel with slight metal. Easy drinking.

mansquito (6789) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Keg: Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops, with caramel malt backbone. Taste is much as expected. Hoppiness is somewhere around the middle. This is not a very ambitious beer, but it is also perfectly drinkable and quite pleasant.

egajdzis (6692) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2010
[Draft @ EB&B] Amber with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, toast, and citrus. Taste of pine, citrus, toffee, grass, and light grapefruit in the finish.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a large frothy off-white head that took for ever to settle. Head like this makes me hope there’s not an infection. The nose seems OK though, some light citrusy hops over a slightly sweet and toasty caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty unexciting, lightly bitter citrusy hops with a toasty malt base. A little sweetness, but it’s pretty well kept in check. Finishes with some minimal bitterness and some husky grain. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. About what I’ve come to expect for the style, rather bland and boring.

3.6
Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Clear orangey copper, with a frothy beige head. Smells like a nice mix of citrus, pine, a touch of honey, and brown sugar. Flavor is a nice mix of piney hop bitterness and smooth, sweet, toasty malty. Pretty simple, but tasty.

3.6
dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2010
12 oz bottle from Oak Tree. Poured a clear slightly thin orange body with large clinging carbonation and an average sized foamy white head. Original aroma is orange marmalade covered toast and fresh cut grass but upon closer inspection a vegtable soup aroma is easily detected. Palate is fuller then I was expecting with a full mouthfeel and linely carbonation followed by a medium duration bitter aftertaste. Flavor of citrus rind, toast crusts and amber malts. Except for the touch of vegtable aroma this is a solid beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2011
In short: A acidic pale ale with many problems.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase somewhere in PA
The look: Partially cloudy golden body topped by a medium off-white head with good retention
In long: Smooth nose of citrusy hops over soft bready cereals. Taste is a bit weird. There is a smooth chewy bready malt backbone but then there is something terribly acrid in the taste along with some band-aids. Citrusy hops are overwhelmed by this acidic and plastic flavor that I have a hard time to put into words. It even felt salty and was unpleasantly very astringent. Finish was more acidic than bitter. Not sure what to make of this one. It didn’t tastee infected or anything, just totally wrong. This was a terrible beer. But remember, when you get a bad bottle like this one it is easy to put the blame on the poor hard-working brewer. And that’s no reason to stop.
