3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep gold with light, white head. Aroma of citrus, apricot, sourdough, and woody vegetable stems. Up-front malty taste, (light, pasta-like malts) with dry, hoppy finish and cereal aftertaste. Even-handed, not too exciting.
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel color with an enormous foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet with dark and golden fruits and a hint of perfume. The flavor was tangy and sweet sugar, dark and golden fruits, yeast and a hint of perfume. Medium length finish. Light to medium body and very overcarbonated. Solid. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Another one from my VA haul, reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy yellow to light orange color with a slight transparency about it allowing a light carbonation to be seen rising throughout the beer. Light foamy head dissipated within about thirty seconds and barely left any lacing in its wake.
The smell had a sweet corn to citrus - slightly lemon with a light grassiness about it.
The taste was mainly sweet with a slight refreshing sort of crisp grassy edge to the flavor.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued but carried a nice crisp sharpness about it.
Overall, decent blonde ale that I think I could do again. coyforce (684) - California, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Extremely foamy head on this brew. FLavor is a bit grassy and aftertaste is a bit sharp on the tongue. mike5326 (1754) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Clear golden color, huge foamy white head. Hops and mild malt aroma. Sweet honey hops flavor with a smooth finish.

Clear golden pour with fair near white head ring. Very much to the descriptoion. it’s like an english pale ale with an american citrusy twist. Smooth and drinkable with a lingering slight bitterness on the palate. Not bad.

This is a beer I try to always keep around. Medium to dark golden color with a good head. Clean, crisp, caramel and hops taste with a little bitterness in the end. Strong bouquet of grains, malt, caramel and yeast in a good way. Goes great with a Shrimp Po Boy down at the Yorktown Pub on the beach in the summer... make that winter too!

A nice twist on a simple lighter ale. A beautiful sweet aroma with a hint of citrus.
Unfortunately drank out of a bottle, so giving them the benefit of the doubt on appearance, but the flavors are pretty simple and not all that interesting, although highly drinkable. Smooth crisp palate cleans gently.

December 2009. An average pale ale with good malty flavors, but a bit on the boring side. Hops on the finish. Pine, citrus, caramel aromas. vmilaxer29 (412) - Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Good beer. Nothing spectacular, but a solid APA. Medium hopiness. Tasty and refreshing.

Aromas are floral and toasty. Appearance is orange-gold with white head foam of moderate retention. Taste is slightly bitter and somewhat sweet. Palate is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and an abrupt finish.
