Ehhh...its ok, but again nothing special. It is what Erie makes well...average beer.
It does have a little punch to it with the 5.5% ABV but that doesn't make up for the lack of a strong flavor or smell. It's too plain for my liking but I could see where others would really like it.

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.
S: Aromas of caramel, biscuit, lemon, lime, herbs, and mandarin orange are present on the nose, but are very muted.
T: Indistinct flavors of lemon, lime, herbs, and mandarin orange take a little time to express themselves, but are muted even further by the emergence of a jumble of caramel, cream, biscuit, and mineral notes at mid-palate. The finish is very short with fleeting notes of minerals, caramel, and orange.
M: Medium in body and dryish. Carbonation is very crisp and intense, but the ale goes down well enough. I have a feeling that if the mouthfeel were a bit better balanced and the carbonation tamed a bit, this ale's flavors would be easier to discern.
O: I really do not know what happened here. Looking at some of the other reviews, I seriously wonder if I have been drinking the same beer. This is a fairly simple, straight-forward ale, but unfortunately it is not simple in an appealing way. There just isn't enough going on in this ale to sustain my interest.

A- Hazy golden amber modest head, ample lacing.
S- Sweet malts, bready, a little yeast in there too. Hop bitterness.
T- Sweet malts vs. Bitter hops 12 rounds no holds barred.
M- Wet and easy. Quality.
O- Not bad at all. Well balanced, nice hop additions. Has an IPA feel without being rude.
