Picked up a six pack at Lake Anna in Virginia because it was a VA beer that I had not seen in Maryland, plus, I like Belgians as a rule. Decent looking beer that was very interesting to the nose, seemed promising. Very tasty, I enjoyed this beer very much, tasty and easy to drink. This is one that I will buy again.

Had on tap at GBD

So overall I find Starr Hill to have merely average beers, but I still like to try and give them support

That being said this beer falls right into that middle of the road category. This beer has a dark amber appearance. Smell was faint malt, hint of citrus, and sweet bread. The taste up front is great with a bit of toffee notes soft sour taste from the Belgian yeast and a pleasant orange/citrus burst. The problem was the mineral metallic aftertaste. Really ruins the beer for me actually. It's not unbearable but it's definitely noticeable. Otherwise it could be a easy drinking full flavored beer. If they could just get that fixed I would drink this more often, but as it stands I would rather drink something else at my BBQ

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a orange gold with a medium off white lasting head. Citrus pine hops and fruity notes as well as some yeast and caramel malt flavor and aroma. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant citrus caramel malt flavor with some citrus pine hops bitterness, fruity mildly spiced with a bit of a nutty ending. This is a solid, good summer belgian pale ale,
