A smooth, medium-bodied session beer with bright citrus hop aroma and finish. Our interpretation of an American Mild Ale.

A - Clear copper color with a large, full, creamy, smooth, white head. Very nice retention leaving a great ring of lace.

S - Floral and citrusy hops. Nice nose with a nice bready malt backbone. Solid and smells refreshing.

T - Similar to the nose. Plenty of biscuity malt accented with a nice grapefruit and orange citrus hop flavor. Undertones of floral hops. A bit of a zesty, bitter finish.

M - Solid, but light, body. Lots of carbonation. Fairly wet feel with a strong bitter finish that doesn't linger too long.

D - Very refreshing and solid beer. Not too complicated but hits the spot for the style.

Notes: Best option at a bar I ended up with so I gave it a shot. Wasn't exactly sure what the style would be (drinks like an English Pale Ale more or less). Refreshing and solid with a great biscuity malt backbone. Nice choice for a pale.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass- pours a hazy amber/orange color with about a finger of head, GREAT retention, some nice rings of lacing. Beautiful looking ale.

Smell is interesting- pretty lemon-y. A little pale malt, not a particularly strong scent. Pleasant, but could be fuller.

Taste is also interesting- like a British bitter but more citrus-y. Lemon and pale malt mix at first, follower by some caramel, which then gives way to the lemon and slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is excellent- medium light body, moderate soft carbonation. This ones a keeper folks. As they say, great session beer. Too bad I can't get it regularly.

A-Nice cloudy orange, some carbonation, two finger head.

S-Caramel malt, with a bouquet of citrus hops. Some grassy hops as well.

T-Starts with large malt profile, which includes caramel. Some citrus hops rounding it out with a tad bit of bitterness.

M-Light to medium bodied, nice carbonation, perhaps over carbonated.

O-A decent beer, it is mild although I think it could use some more bitterness.
