Bottle from Midtown Wine and Spirits, in Nashville. Pours a clear, weak-tea/pale copper with a pillowy off-white head; this is easily the clearest pale I’ve ever seen. The nose is of dank citrus and dried grass hop notes along with a slightly biscuity and sweet malt backing. Light to medium-bodied and silky while on-the-tongue, the palate transitions to a pleasant, moderately bitter finish that lingers nicely. The flavor amps up the same qualities found on the nose, with citrus, somewhat grassy and piny hop notes dancing along with toasty pale malt to create one of the tastiest packaged pale ales I’ve sampled in a long time. This is a beer that I could stick with throughout an entire evening. For me, that is among the highest compliments I can pay to a session beer. This is good stuff. jw0406 (1275) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2011
16 oz pour from the brick store. Light head, with a amber color. Aromas of hops and citrus. Very well balanced, absolutely a great session beer sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden copper color with a white head and a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium body on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, a nice balance of malt and citurs hops. Maybe a litte summit hops. A nice light bitter finish. raphael (1254) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2011
On tap at Pizza Daddy. Very pleasant surprise. If I lived here in PA would be a great session beer. Hoppier than many pales, a little thin with moments of hoppy edge at first. Light in body for a pale ale. almost no head. Gachupines (1252) - USA - APR 7, 2011
Golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly hops, very piney. Flavor is strong piney hops with a very clean finish. Slight malt sweetness on the tongue, but overall just a very strong pale ale. One of the better examples that I’ve found recently.

This one pours a crystal clear light red to deep orange and head is off white and lasting. Nose lend emmense toasty, biscuity, bready and earthy malts. Hop nose is mostly citrus, fruits and light resins. Flavor is some earthy hood then come in with toasted and biscuit malts and finishes out with mixed citrus hops. Medium body and crisp mouthfeel. easy to drink. Earthy hop and malt forefront. Not bad. not life changing. Peter_L (1246) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015

Bärnsten, nästa orangefärgad vätska. Lätta dofter av citrus och tallbarr. Låg beska med beskedlig maltkropp. Lättdrucken.
On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured light orange. Grassy, floral flavor. Crisp and sessionable. patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle. 12 oz. Pours a light, clear tan with a rich, frothy white head. Decent amount of lacing throughout the session. Aroma of fresh hops, grapefruit, soft, earthy notes, wet grass, and slight hints of tangerine. Very hoppy and agressive at first, but the middle is dominated by a juicy citrus and sweet maltiness that fades as the beer washes back and finishes with a dry, bitter hoppy bit. Superbly drinkable, with a robust, yet crisp and well-rounded mouthfeel. Excellent session ale, and one of the best American pales I’ve ever had.

Pours a dark amber from a bottle. Smells like sex. Tastes like beer though. A little thin.
