Like the prior two reviews, I had this on tap at the Winking Lizard. Poured into a pint glass, and as usual, the Lizard chilled it too much.

Pale amber in color with very little head, it is not very remarkable in appearance. Has a slightly fruity smell, peach and orange.

Very mild and fruity in taste, a true session style. A bit like Magic Hat #9, it's an easy drinking beer.

The flavor opened up as it warmed. If it were sold in bottles, I could see this being a good brew for a hot summer day.

had on tap at winking lizard canton, oh

A- clear burnt amber with a nice creamy off white head leaving some great lace.

S- very fresh orange and tangerine thanks to the addition of orange peel, and pine and grapefruit hops.

T- toasty grain, moderate bitterness, and excellent hop flavor of tangerine and pine complimented my orange essential oils. some lime in the finish.

MF- medium bodied and fizzy. dry and thirst quenching.

D- a totally drinkable and unique offering, especially for the style. pale ales don't often get unique recipe twists like this addition of orange peel but here it works beautifully.

Sampled on draft 5/1/10. This is the 'keep the glass' draft special at Winking Lizard this month. The 24 oz. Brooklyn mug it came in is excellent!

Pours very nice, large small bubbled white head with a clear golden amber body. Smell is citrusy, can definitely detect some orange. Also, a bit wheaty? Taste is milder hops, a little pineapple, and a slight bit of orange peel. This beer feels great carbonated-wise, but the citric acid squashes a bit of the hops and overall flavor, imo. Finishes dry, and slightly sticky and sweet. Good.

A - pours a honey orange with a dense finger of offwhite head. Good retention fantastic lacing

S - light toasted malts, apples and light fruits, lemony.

T - light lemon citrus and a bit if dry bitterness from the hops. Bready caramel malts. Very mild overall

M - light and well carbonated. easy drinking

O - Tasty entry level type beer. Very mellow, well put together, balanced. Lemon is the highlight.
