A good session beer. Citrus aroma. Smooth drinking, although it could be better balanced. Middle of the road pale ale.

12oz bottle pours amber with a fluffy offwhite head. Aroma is pure grapefruit and pine. Nice hoppy and delicious. Flavor is mostly dominated by those same hops but balanced nicely with caramel malts. Palate is smooth airy and quite drinkable. Medium bodied. Tasty.. and a great session brew.

I have to give this a good rating based soley on its wonderful drinkability. There are no qualms about buying a sixer, or cracking a fresh one. With a nice aroma hints of pine and plenty of hop this is a beer to be shared.

In truth, I just had a few tastes of this, but it was enjoyable. One of the best pale ales I’ve had (but that’s not saying much).

The commercial description would have you believe this is "full-bodied, complex," but it’s not; though, it’s not a bad beer. It’s fairly light, but has a distinct hoppy character to it. Nothing to keep me from drinking it, but nothing stand-out either.

Good pale ale..tastes pretty good compared to others. Just left me wanting something a little more.. Nothing wrong with it and a big seller in the US..Not my favorite but nothing wrong with it either. Smells great and plenty of hops..

A good choice at a bar with a limited selection. Middle of the road hoppiness, but pleasant enough. Goes down smooth and tastes clean, no fillers. A little grapefruit flavor in there, a litlle floral on the nose, and a nice drink. A good session beer...

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2005
I picked up about 8 or 9 bottles of this from a brother in my fraternity who told me "this is terrible. I cant drink it man, i’m just going to throw it away if you dont take it" I had a good laugh and took it off his hands for him. Poured a light orange hue with next to no head. Floral, hoppy aroma. Sweet and hoppy flavor. A bit unbalanced; not enough malt i think. This is definitely a "drinkable" beer, unlike my brothers, who stick to Keystone and Busch Light, would have had me believe :)

Cascade and malt aroma- medium gold with decent but not lasting head. The flavor is bitter upfront, leading to balanced hop and malt flavors, finishing off-dry. Good, reliable and widely available.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 Bottle- Great pale ale and readily available. Tastes great and goes down easy. Definitly worth a try.
