Can > mason Pint
A - Clouded orange gold with a finger of soapy white head, medium on lacing.
S - It has that weird aroma that most other spring house beers have. Kind of offensive malt, weird sweetness, caramel, some grapefruit, decaying fruit? Meh
T - Flavor is just as odd, tart grape, tangerine, bread malt, caramel, some odd earthy hints, a little nuttiness too.
M - Just average, baking flour dryness kinda hanging on.
O - Really disappointed in this beer, this is like halfway between an amber and an APA and its not good for either side.

Decided to revisit my first review. Had this from a can on 2014-05-28 in Columbia, PA
A - Clear gold with a 1.5-finger white head and decent lace.
S - Light grass, pale malt, touch of pine and hop floral. Mild.
T - Nice amount of sweet, lightly toasted bread at first; quickly followed by a burst of citrus, pine and a good blast of bitterness. The malt sweetness lingers for a bit; gradually subsuming to the longer lasting bitterness. It's a pleasant aftertaste when you're in the mood for an IPA-like bitter finish.
M - Medium body and carbonation. Substantial feel; perhaps due to some oats? Lots to like about this mouthfeel.
O - As good as ever. I made a couple minor tweaks to the original rating scores. I've reviewed over 1,000 beers since my first review of Seven Gates and I can report; it's still a good 'un.

I had this on tap this evening at Bully's in Columbia, PA. I hadn't seen this ale before but noticed the unique tap pull and decided to give it a go on the bartender's recommendation.
It was delicious. I enjoyed the fruity, hop aroma. The bitterness seemed very well balanced by the malt with a citrus overtone and the medium plus carbonation was just right.
I was surprised to learn that it is made right here in Lancaster County in the small hamlet of Conestoga. I hope Matt the brewer (found his name on their website) keeps up the good work.
