3.35/5 rDev -5.6%
First had: on cask at Yards Brewing Co., Philly, PA, at their 5th Annual Real Ale Fest 2012
Decent brew. Amber-copper color with a thin white head. Aroma of grains, bready malts, floral hops. Basic taste that followed the aroma well: biscuity malts, caramel, decently balanced with floral hops, for a slightly bitter, dry finish. A bit stale, but not too bad. Mouthfeel is on the lighter end of medium, a bit thin, but decently drinkable and generally unoffensive.

Pours a deep amber clouded off white light tan head, with light scattered lacing dwindling. Aroma has a caramel malt base with some mild roasted nuts and herbal hops to balance it out. Flavor wise this was a mild malted tones an even keeled balanced sweetness with hints of earthy and pine cone hops in the background. Mouthfeel is even bodied with easygoing carbonation, overall I felt this one was easy to drain but nothing too complex or outside of the norm.

A: Poured from an impressive looking 1L bottle w/ a swing cap on it into a couple of pint glasses. Quite hazy, chestnut brown in color. Forms a big bubbled foamy head that reduces down to a rocky surface coating. Some lacing.
S: Predominantly an earthy/woody character with some bread, caramel malt and yeasty esters.
T: Strong flavor of caramel malt and diacetyl. A mild bitterness. Finishes with earthy malts. Virtually no hop character.
M: Medium in body with a solid malt feel to it. Appropriate carbonation.
D: A drinkable beer, but way too much caramel malt for my likings.

Had this on 2010-05-15 at the Mt Hope Brewfest in PA (from tasting notes)
A - Amber leaning towards red. White head
S - Grain, mild and sweet citrus. A little hop floral.
T - Biscuit, caramel, apple, grapefruit. Moderately bitter, which continues into the drying aftertaste.
M - Light body and medium carbonation.
D - Better than average amber ale but not remarkable. Drinks pretty easy.

A- A nice reddish amber pour with a finger of tight off white head which stays around for quite a while.
S- Light Malts, some citrus fruits, a hint of sweetness....maybe cane sugar, and hops.
T- A little malt up front, but quickly turns hoppy. Citrus and a bit of pine, with loads of hoppy flavor. Finish was dry and slightly bitter from the hops.
M- Coated the mouth quite well, but was a bit over carbonated
D- An OK amber, but simply didn't feel balanced enough for me.

3.98/5 rDev +12.1%
A-Deep copper with a thin light tan head that reduced to a thin film and left decent lace.
S-Light roast, a bit of caramel and a light spicy citrus hop kick.
T-Fruity/spicy hop bite with a pleasant semi-sweet caramel malt backbone. Finishes with a fair amount of dryness. A sublte hint of apple/pear in the background, took me more than a pint to pin it down! All in all quite nice.
M-Medium body, fairly crisp and quite smooth. A good amount of lingering bitterness.
D-Quite good, since I wasn't expecting much from this one. I found this brew to be similar to Troeg's Hopback which is certainly not a bad thing! This is a pleasant, easy to drink well made beer. The ABV is a bit high to make it a true session beer but I could put down a few pints of this without complaint! A nice, go to beer. The type a beer geek can enjoy and share with Dad (like I did) or folks that "aren't really into beer."

4.13/5 rDev +16.3%
A- Pours a deep amber/reddish orange color with a two-finger (off-white) head that slowly fades. Has great lacing.
S- A nice combination of toasty/doughy malts mixed with grapefruit, pine, tangerines, and orange marmalade.
T- Starts off with a sweet malt flavor then transitions into a bitter hoppy finish.
M- Medium with good carbonation. Flavors really coat your tongue.
D- A really good Amber that is well balanced and highly drinkable. Keep up the good work Roy Pitz.
