Poured from a small growler into a shaker pint.

A - really pretty copper body with a nice fine white head . Good lacing and retention.

N - hoppy nose with biscuit notes.

T - nice old world taste with piney and citrusy hops with a good malt background.

M - a little watery but nicely carbonated despite being in the growler for a couple days.

O - good drinking beer. Like it. Cheers!

From a 32 oz growler

Pours a golden color with the slightest hint of amber, smallish head that fizzes away fairly fast and leaves no lacing.

Smell is mostly sweet malt with a grainy aspect to it, some decent hop aromas.

Taste starts out with the sweet front, decent citrus-like hop presence follows up, carbonation is on the high side which is too high for this style, slight slickness to the mouth with a decent body.

On-tap. Poured a clear, orange color. Modest white head. Consistent lacing. Aroma is a bit fruity and grainy with some English hops. Flavor has some floral hops, fruits and toasted malt. Very simple with a forgiving bitterness. Peppy carbonation with a lighter body. I found it to be refreshing. Better than expected. I am partial to the style.

Several tugs of the hand pump fills the 16 ounce glass with nearly no head (only a blend of quickly fading large bubbles and a layer of fine ones). Orange-amber color and appropriately cloudy. No lace.

Lots of yeast and what I call brewer- floor smell. Too bad, I always root for the locals.

Watery but without much carbonation--actually comes across balanced. The flavor is a huge improvement from the smell. It starts with a neutral pale ale malt flavor. The swallow is balanced, but the aftertaste is bitter enough to make it interesting. Straight bitter finish.
