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.
