12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with blutt59. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate-large off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Aroma of malt along with stale air. The flavor is malt with a bit of treacle and cardboard followed by some mild-moderate hops bitterness. Glad I tried it, but probably not something I would drink with any regularity.

Bottle ( 12oz ). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Coppery pour with an average beige head. Slightly lactic grassy aroma, orange juice and mild roastiness - a bit funky (goldings!!). Taste is oily-bitter, grainy, with citrus and a little dry herbal bitterness - light, mildly astringent, nicely carbonated ... simple, unmemorable: clean though.

Thanks to Blutt59. Appearance: Dark orange with a small off white head. Aroma: Grassy golding hops, not my favourite at all but none the less, malt and caramel. Flavour: Bitter with a nice amount of malt and spices and fruit. Not bad.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Brilliant copper kettle color with a frothy head. Spicy hop and pale malt aromas. Smooth medium body. Good toasted caramel malty sweet flavors with mild spicy hops. Nicely bitter finish.

Bottle and tap at the brewery. Strangely dark for a pale ale, too dry. 2009 brew makes great improvements.

12oz bottle courtesy of Cavie. I was hoping for more hops out of this one. Its malty and bready with mild hops that taste a bit dirty.

StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Pours a slightly cloudy copper-amber color with a small beige head. The aroma is bready with malts and some dust. The flavor is caramel, malts, biscuit and mildly citric hops. The mouthfeel is light and crisp. The finish is short and dry with an odd aftertaste. Overall: A very nice little pale ale. Thanks Eric.c

Pours reddish amber into the glass with a white head. Aroma is pure malt with a faint hint of hops. Caramel flavor with a bit of biscuit malt presence. Seems a bit out of character for the style, but isnt all that bad.

12oz. Pour is deep amber with a fluffy white head. Aromas of caramel, piney hops, and malt. Flavor is piney hops, yeast, and slight caramel. Nice session brew here.

extremeicon (113) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Tap at the brewery. Strong citrus aroma. Color light, clear orange. Hops present but not overwhelming - orange flavor carries over from the aroma. Body a tad light but very drinkable.
