We were in ATL this past weekend for the Elton/Billy show. Since they gave us drink tickets (yessss) with our hotel room, we tried out the hotel bar and I had some of these on tap. Tasty. I could drink this stuff all night. Wait, I did. It was also on tap at the arena, and then still on tap when we got back to the hotel and drink it some more. Tasty.

Wow. This was a really good beer. Well balanced. Thought it would have more hop flavor and bitters to it. It was perfectly balanced. Poured an orange color with a two finger white head. Aroma was citrus and some floral hops, but they were weaker. Flavor explodes on the tongue. Which I lived in the Southeast so I could get this beer on a regular basis.

Pours bright orange with medium sized white head. Dissipates quickly. Nicely hopped and dry -- a decent example, for the style.

awaisanen (1310) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2009
On draft. Mostly transparent, honey gold colored pour with a two finger layer of well sustaining, fizzy white head. Big, fresh c-hop aroma bursting with a light orange citrus on top of a mild honey malt tone. Clean. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel with a moderately dry finish. Flavors of light caramel and honey sweetness up front on the palate, followed by a fresh barrage of orange citrus and grassy hop flavors. A mild, but pleasing hop bitterness lingers in the finish. Enjoyable beer overall; very clean, drinkable, and well executed. A little bit more hop bitterness would be a welcome addition, especially at the front of the palate to cut the initial perceived sweetness and help the hop flavors toward the finish to "pop" a bit more.

Bottle thanks to osu97gp. Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel malts and a hint of citrus hops. Flavor is light at first put finishes with a decent bitterness from the citrus hops. Slight lingering flavor as well.

Pours a wonderful lite copper color with a white head. Smell the hops, taste the bitter hops. Good american pale ale with that sweetwater taste.
