Pours a light golden color, very mild pale ale and very drinkable, could use some more hops

Pale straw pour, sweet floral flavor, orange and citrus notes. Medium mouthfeel ok HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Bright, golden pour with a big white head. Aroma of mild flowers, caramel malt, some fruit, Flavor is fresh and clean, hoppy, delicious. This is quite believably a 30 year old recipe. And, more importantly, I can imagine buying this beer and having my mind blown. This is an excellent pale ale still. Light bodied, super heavy carbonation. Very carbonated. Finishes fruity and bitter. cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours clear and a golden-yellow color, lighter than most American pale ales. Has a distinct hoppy-lemony aroma that’s begging to be tasted. This is a delicious beer! It’s not an American pale ale by any means. There’s never a hop punch, and it’s got a much more muted flavor, almost like a sharp pilsner. There’s no caramelly sweetness that’s common in many pale ales, so you may not like it as much if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s got a robust flavor with a clean mouthfeel.

Light malt and grain aroma. Clear light golden color with a small white head. Mild sweet and a little bitter in the beginning with a slightly stronger bitter finish.

Bottle: pours a nice clear yellow with just a tiny coppery hint to the color. It has a nice foamy off white head on it. Aroma... cereal. Some faint hop floweriness if I start to look for it. The flavor is where this one shines. I wouldn’t call it exciting, but it’s nice, clean and crisp. It drinks very easily and I could see how in its time this was a revolutionary beer, and for that it gets bonus points. It’s got a nice hop bitterness, without being offensive or shocking. Nice.

Bottle. Taste is lemon peel, grass, hay and grain. Decent, but nothing to write home about. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle: Gold pour with a medium white head.
aroma is musty grain, biscuity malt. grassy and light citrusy hop.
Somewhat sourish grainy flavour. Grassy hop, pithy orange peel and a dryish finish.

Bottle. Pours warm golden in color with an ample white head. Aroma notes heavy of grass, cereal grain, and light citrus. Very piney hops up front, light citrus zing, and smooth rich malts form a nice body. Clean and clear finish. gripweed57 (2865) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Slightly hazy medium gold color topped by a medium-sized bubbly white head. Light grainy malt aroma. Subtle Notes of fresh hay and citrus hops. Crisp toasted malt flavor with dryish notes. Toasted nuts and black pepper in the mid taste. Medium-bodied yet light and drinkable. Finish is dry and bitter and the spicy hops shine here. Long dry aftertaste.
