Thanks to Rich Wagner, a Pennsylvania breweries historian, for the beer. He told me this can was picked right off the production line during a tour.
Poured into and enjoyed from a DFH Pint Glass
A - Beer pours a hazy, semi-translucent, orange color. A one finger, foamy head on the initial pour. The head slowly fades to a thin skim. Good amount of tiny carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom. Broken curtains of lacing left after drinking.
S - A malty, sweet aroma. Hints of citrus.
T - A really good ale. A mixture of sweet, bready malts, hops and a touch of pine and citrus (grapefruit). Not overly bitter. A very smooth, easy drinking beer. The ABV is not noticeable.
M - A medium consistency. Medium carbonation. A tangy aftertaste.
O - I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's a well crafted brew that you could easily enjoy several of throughout an evening of drinking. This is my first beeer from Twin Lakes and I was impressed. Along with Dogfish Head, 16 Mile and Evolution, Twin Lakes is another reason to try the beers being brewed in Delaware.

Twin Lakes Greenville Pale Ale now in cans!
A: Poured a clear orange/amber color with a sudsy 1.5 finger head that had nice retention and left some impressive sticky lacing down the sides.
S: Light citrus hops, a little bit of orange and orange peel, some grains and a floral grass aroma.
T: Light hoppy flavor with some grass and a little bit of fruit - some lemon, orange, and orange peel. Light caramel malt on the back end with a slightly bitter finish.
M: Medium bodied with solid carbonation, crisp out of the can!
O: Pumped that this beer is now in cans, its a solid APA and the first canned beer in Delaware, will probably be a staple in my fridge this summer. Hopefully Twin Lakes will can more of their beer!

Woodychandler comes through again with another canned beer.Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some hops. Taste is also somewhat mild, piney hops and a touch of malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Can number 2 from a six pack purchased at Banks Wine & Spirits. Poured into a tumbler.
A: The pale ale is an amber color, shiny like a penny. Transparent with just a bit of haze, the ale sports a three finger head on pour (yes, it overflowed). Minor patches of lace result.
S: The nose is fresh citrus, almost raw enough to be a harvest ale. This really caught me by surprise. Light cereals follow, but the hops make their mark. Damned impressive.
T: And the taste is even better. The hops taste so fresh, so straight from the vine that it is hard to believe. Citrus, grapefruit and orange in particular, are sugary sweet; bitter but not biting. Pale cereal malts add to the sweetness, at times a melange that I'd best describe as Froot Loops-esque. The resiny sweet hops continue and drive the finish. Absolutely surprised by this beer. Two cans in, consistent flavor, I'm sold.
M: Smooth and sweet, the light malts provide as much flavor as the powerful hops. Hell, even the yeast strain lends a saison-like feel. Very good.

After being very pleasantly surprised by this somewhat obscure offering on-tap a while ago, I was quite excited to see it in canned form to see if it lived up to what I remembered...
A - Two plus fingers of tightly packed moderately creamy billowing khaki colored head with a bit of a rocky top... Very nice retention... Bursting at the seams with small bubbled carbonation that starts with a moderate pace at the bottom of the glass before picking up a blistering pace before reaching the top... The color is a muted amberish copper that displays some pale straw highlights when back lit... There is a slight haziness...
S - Loaded with biscuity malt... Compliment by pale malts... Very light floral notes... Perhaps some orange zest... There is a very mild but assertive earthy hop presence that lies beneath... Very clean and pure...
T - The malts are first and foremost... Bread, biscuits, crust, etc... Just a smidgen of caramel... Some grassy notes... Perhaps just a tinge of metallic character... A very subtle bitterness lingers on the back of the tongue...
M - Medium bodied... Lush and moderately creamy... Smooth, even and consistent sip after sip... Clean... Crisp... Uber refreshing...
D - This is a damn fine brew... A stellar example of the American Pale Ale style that proves the APAs can be deeply rewarding and loaded with character and flavor... Highly recommended for any BA who is looking to be pleasantly surprised by a brewery most have never heard of... Twin Lakes deserves wider notoriety and acclaim... Really good stuff...
In case you were wondering, this lived up to my recollection...

Ba Review #189
Served On: 07/22/2012
Glassware: Pint Glass
Labeled ABV: -
Date/ Code: -
Found this at Dewey Beach Liquors while visiting Coastal Delaware.
Look: The color was a fairly clear copper. Head was a frothy white foam at about 1-finger. Lacing was transparent but present.
Smell: Crisp and light herbal aroma. Very clean nose with some sweet malts and grassy hops.
Taste: Sweet malts started things off with some faint grassy pine in the middle. The finish was rather dry and had hints of wet grass and lingering hops.
This Pale Ale was very basic with high drinkability. A high level of quality was noticeable in the brew. I wouldn't put this one above SN Pale Ale, but it certainly is a close second.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Thanks kindly to mdaschaf for the trade!
What an incredibly gorgeous forming huge head out of the can. Is this on nitro? It looks like it came off a nitro tap, it looks fabulous. Head color is huge taking on a creamy off white texture. Pale orange amber body, with some slow rising hard to see carbonation. Love this head top looks amazing like baked alaska.
Bouquet is just flat out wonderful. Soft light malt and hop, round and dense. Slowly creeps up and grows. Just real enjoyable.
Taste is, delicious. Wonderful soft doughy texture with a chewiness like a wheat ale. Dense bread dough raw and malt in the palate with no toasty qualities, with a slowly creeping hop bitter perhaps with some lime astringency that slowly builds on the swallow.
WOW. I am very impressed by this beer, I really enjoyed it.

12oz can poured into a Pint Glass. Many thanks to THECPJ!
A - Pours a clear dark amber with a soapy ivory head that recedes to a spotty haze and thick ring.
S - Sweet caramel malt profile with some grassy, herbal hops. Plain-Jane, but nice nonetheless.
T - Follows the nose closely, the caramel malt has a bit of a toasted quality to it and the hops are herbal and slightly spicy. Moderately bitter finish.
M - Crisp and smooth, with a medium body and decent carbonation.
O - A decent APA, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
