3.9/5 rDev +6%
On tap at Nicky's BBQ and bar da the Bronx, NY, a ways back and reviewed from notes.
Pours clear, on the lighter side of almond amber.
Minor off white head, leaves nice looking fine and high lacing.
Grainy hop nose
Pleasantly hopped up and tasty pale. Hops are fresh, resiny and well represented in the mix.
Worth giving this on a try if you see it available in your area.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, brownish-gold in color, high carbonation, clear
Smell: piney hops
Taste: big time citrus with orange and lemon taking center stage, some pale malt.
Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness and dryness towards the end, dryness at the end, medium-light bodied with moderate-high carbonation
Overall: An excellent good citrusy pale ale. The nose gives no indication of how juicy this pale ale is. One of the better tasting domestic pale ales. Would certainly get a six pack.

Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Pint.

Smell: Caramel and citrus.
Taste: Sweet caramel core with some toastiness. There are some citrus and spicy notes as well, especially on the finish.
Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium body, semi-dry finish.
Overall: Textbook Pale Ale. Nothing fancy but can sometimes hit the spot.

On-tap at Nebraska Brewing Company. December 26th, 2011.
A: The beer poured a dark amber color, different than many pales, but reminiscent of Mirror Pond. There was a nice white head of foam that retained it's form throughout and left decent lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: There was a very bitter, almost burnt aroma of malt and hops.
T: Not impressed, much more bitter than expected. Strong malt profile with a faint hint of hops. Almost reminded me of a cross between an ESB and an Amber.
M: Pretty light mouthfeel. As bitter as the beer was, it didn't leave an unpleasant aftertaste.
O: This was a pretty weak offering from Nebraska Brewing. This could be partly due to me being from the Pacific Northwest where I've had much better.

Pours an effervescent honey color with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Nice head retention & lacing
S: Faint husky graininess & a little citrus
T: Herbal & piney hops mix with a little breadyness, a touch of orange peel up front. Dryness, slight biscuitty malt & a little aspirin, pears & grapefruit, plus woody bitterness as this warms. Finishes crisp, bready with a little bit of pear fruitttyness & a little grapefruit
MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation; pretty good balance
Drinks easy, not bad for the style, but not one I would buy again

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, a touch of malts as well. Taste is well balanced malts and hops, some citrus, just a bit of caramel. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a tight, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.
Smells of citrus and floral hops.
Tastes of the citrus hops with a solid malt base. Hops lead off with grapefruit notes along with some pine, but not quite as hoppy as it smells. Malts come through next and add a little caramel sweetness along with toasted bread. Finishes fairly with a touch of earthy bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium-light with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a solid pale, but could use a little more oomph.

On-tap at Rattle ‘n Hum, New York, NY
A: The beer is clear pale yellow in color and has no signs of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that never completely faded away.
S: Very strong aromas of lemon and grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste is a little maltier compared to the smell but is also packed with lots of citrusy flavors.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate with a bit of smoothness and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a great aroma and taste and is also very easy to drink.
