12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a decent white head and plenty of carbonation. I’m not usually a fan of these lower abv ales but this one is well done and the flavor compares well with many pales ales of much higher alcohol content. I also tend to not like organic beers as they often have off tastes but again, not bad with this one. drowland (8932) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2011
9/21/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cav-forshizz-ie. Slightly hazy orange pour with basically no head to speak of, and juuuust a touch of lacing. This beer smells and tastes like creamed corn... a lot. Besides that, though, the aroma is sweet and hints at tea. The flavor is bready and tastes like overcooked pasta in addition to the corn (yes, I’m being serious), and there’s also a hint of tea. Mehhhh. Frank (4225) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
It is nice to see a brewer make a lower rather than a higher ABV American pale. I like an IPA as much as the next guy but I get kinda tired of everyone pushing their APAs to be IPAs. Let’s relax a bit on the alcohol and brew some beers we can drink shittons of, that’s what I say, especially when the beers are as good as this. It may be low on alcohol but you’d never guess based on the taste. It is full flavored w/ tons of wonderful citrus hop notes. It’s just a tiny bit sweet, enough to keep it from being watery, and has lovely soft carbonation. This is a brew w/ the seemingly mutually exclusive properties of being light and spritzy and deep and complex. I want more of it. MattH (908) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Tap. Poured an amber color. Nice hop to malt balance. Easy drinking. Enjoyed this beer. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2011
I really enjoyed this pale ale. It was very nice and smooth with a great flavor and not too much hop palate. Low alcohol so it is very sessionable.

Beer of the Month, pours pale yellow with a decent head, aroma of tangerine, mango and malt tones, flavor of malt sourness with some biscuits, lemon and floral perfum, medium bodied, an unpleasant burn towards the end. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Slightly hazy pale gold with thin creamy head and faint lacing.
Aroma: Spicy floral aroma with some sweet citrus.
Taste: Bready and grainy malts upfront, with light notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon and herbs. Light bitterness.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, light but firm body with a dry finish. Feels like an English Bitter.
Overall: Nice, subtle cross between an APA and an English Bitter. Very mild, but balanced and refreshing.

What the heck? Just arrived on shelfs (when I bought/rated it a few months ago) and it was terribly oxidized, cardboard, just not good. Seems like it was a 6-12 month old pale ale stored in a hot room... osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Pours a clear yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops with some malts in the background. Flavor of citrus hops with some caramel malts. Very well balanced. Good beer. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2011
This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. aroma was grainy, lighter two roast, light toast and mild bittering hops. Flavor was mainly pale malt, hardly and hops there at all. Eh.
