On tap at the pub. Light color, clear orange. Crisp clean drink with a light hop profile and herbal aromas. Session is the name of the experience here. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2012

Score: *** /4
Half pint at the brewpub. Pours a very cloudy light orange with a white head. Aroma is very grassy, very herbal. Clean hoppiness with a juicy backdrop. Palate is very nice, holds up to any pale ale. Hops are all over the flavor too. Nice, drying finish. Zesty citrus and grassiness. Everything is so clear and well defined. I can’t say this is an IPA, the malts and body just aren’t there. But as far as a pale ale goes, this has all the depth of the best of them. Very, very tasty. ChainGangGuy (4919) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2012
Tried both the cask and draught version side-by-side.

Appearance: Moderately cloudy, straw-hued yellow body with a spray of white seafoam up top.
Smell: Sugar dusting, cereal-scented barley with notes of fresh lemon, florals, and far-off whiff of exotic spice.
Taste: A light taste of humble golden barley with a touch of sweet, though it soon dries out as a trail of pithy citrus with hints of florals and spice roll in. Lightly bitter. Lingering lemon on the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation, whereas the cask version had relatively a light carbonation level.
Overall: Pleasant tasting either way, with just a slight extra spiciness throughout, a faint minerally bent, and gentler carbonation on the cask iteration.
Draft at W.B. Golden with a white top. Scent is citrus and grassy. Taste is grassy, citrus and lemony.
