A – Pale yellow color with a rocky 1 finger white head. Head recedes quickly and leaves a nice white ring of bubbles around the glass.

S – Light citrus from the hops a very minimal light malt.

T – Light hoppy flavor, nothing over powering.

M – Light bodied beer. Carbonation was a little on the light side.

O – My buddy loves Fegleys and I got this bottle from him. I was happy to give it a try but there a couple other pale ales that I would rather buy on a regular basis. (491 characters)

Date: July 9, 2015... Glassware: Barley Creek pint... Occasion: sitting in between storms, enjoying thirsty Thursday with me, myself, and I... Appearance: a darker amber body than expected--considering its name--with little effervescence; off-white head pours thin but creamy, flattening to a reasonable quarter-inch; ling becomes sporadic but visible.... Aroma: pleasant lemon, citrus and freshly mowed hay; aromas are faint and suggest little malt presence or balance; some odd funk catches at the profile's end, turning a decent allure to a debatable one.... Palate: smooth, fizzy at the throat and a bit warming; creamy at the start, with a little sizzle at the teeth--thin in the middle, with an equally soft aftertaste... Taste: lemon zest battles some earthy, malty undercurrents--both may be losing; light bitterness cannot create a strong profile, though the citric hints of grapefruit and melon give the tastebuds something to contemplate--not a pale ale with a vast array of talent; the faint hint of flowers at the back end does leave me with a desire of another sip... Overall: Not sure how proud Franklin would be knowing he adorned this bottle--Yards offered a much better brew for Ben's image to plug; a decent beer to compliment chips or pretzels, but not much else to say...should I end up in Allentown, I would definitely try Fegley's other offerings before coming back to this... (1,399 characters)

Had a pint at the Allentown location. Appeared clear gold with a short white head. You know, there's no massive hops or big kick, but this is fine example of a sessionable pale ale. The clean citrus spice has a crisp bite and stands out over the mild caramel malts. This beer leans to the hops, but the brewery calls this "West Cost style" and it fits the bill. (361 characters)

12/28...on tap in Allentown...pours bright gold with active bubbles. Thick white foam. Pine nose and grapefruit in there too. Same comment on the taste. Medium body lends a nice even flavor throughout. Bitter bite. Sunny indeed. (228 characters)

Pours a coppery orange hue with a medium lasting off-white head with some nice lacing. Aroma and Taste of citrus floral hops, some good citrus and fruity notes, with some biscuit malt. A good medium body, slightly dry crisp mouthfeel, with moderate carbonation. Finish is citrus floral hops, citrus fruity notes, ending is a slightly sweet dry hops flavor. Overall a good solid session brew (390 characters)

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

A: Princeton orange coloring, slight haze with a moderately paced display of micro-bubbles. The head is 1 inch, oat colored, milky-frothy in texture, with a moderately rate of retention. A low visual appeal of lacing.

S: Dry orange and pine for aroma, flowery, citrus and grapefruit. Herbaceous notes of parsely, dry celery, with a pretty good show of hops for a pale.

T: Citrusy grapefruit with dry oranges, flowery hops with some toasted sweet speciality grains. A bit of pine, spicy herbaceous note, piney-alcohol dry fade. Nice maltiness, good depth adding substance and backbone.

M: Spicy mouthful, herbaceous grapefruit, light-medium body, decent amount of carbonation presence with a dry hoppy fade of flowery pine and grapefruit.

O: Good rate of drinkability, spicy herbaceous, dry show of west coast hops and good malt support for balance. Likeable. (866 characters)

Appearance - orange hazy color. No head whatsoever on this beer.

Smell - citrusy. Smells like a mix of oranges and grapefruits. Actually smells quite nice.

Taste - unfortunately it really just does not live up to the smell, or any of the other average pale ales on the market.

Mouthfeel - average

Overall - I really don't think I would drink this again, nor would I recommend it to friends (394 characters)
