355ml bottle. Pours orange. Floral, orange, tea, earthy, herbal, nice biscuit finish. Pretty nice. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle beers of europe. Slightly earthy, with a peach & melon aroma and taste. The finish has a nice sharp orangey bite but softens at the last minute. spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
On keg, golden brown with a white head, aroma is light caramel & biscuit malt, floral and mild citrus hops coming through, finish moderate bitter. Pretty good. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2013

Appearance: There’s a slight haze in the light amber body with a creamy white head that has average retention.
Aroma: Caramel malts and hints of orange battle for the nose with a hint of spice. Pretty mild.
Taste: Light floral bitterness is accompanied by a light malt base with a hint of spice. Not big on this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I do not enjoy this very much. The flavor profile simply doesn’t appeal to me.
12oz bottle. Hazy dark golden with a thin foamy white head. Flavors are bread, biscuit, caramel, lemon and grapefruit with spicy notes. Significant bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily and chalky texture. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2015
Middle of the road, perfectly fine pale ale. Good gateway beer for those beginning to experiment with hops on their palate. Zeswaft (1785) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Recently I’ve been searching high and low for an awesome pale ale but living in seattle everything is a damn 7% IPA and a quality pale ale has been shunned. Now low abv "session" IPA’s are all the rage but they are usually just bitter hop water. What happened to a normal goddamn pale ale?
Finally! Not surprised that this comes from one of my favorite east coast breweries. Handedly hopped with flowery and earthy hops. Light bodied but a enough malt to perfectly balance it. I’ve been moving away from IPA’s because they have become too syrupy and heavy and then bittered to hell. This beer is well crafted and proves you can get a flavorful hoppy beer without all the alcohol and malt. Please tell me this will be an all-year offering. degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a cream-colored, large-grained head. Nose is lime, ruby red grapefruit, and rosemary. Drinks astringent, with strong hops notes underpinned with some roast malt. Definite floral notes on the close, along with a clean finish. An excellent example of the style. 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2012
Kind of creamy, malty, and hoppy. Some spiced and roasted malts. Enjoyable. Slightly bland but a good brew.
