look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a nice light golden amber. A touch hazy with a rather large white head. This quickly faded and left behind just a thin film accross the top and a decent amount of lace. Nice carbonation visible streaming up from the bottom.

very light citrus hops were the most noticeable. A malty back was there, light grain and a touch of sugar. Wow, this was just awesome. It was like a light IPA, but not in the normal watered down bad way. Nice solid grain backround gave way to the light citrusy hops. Very nice. A touch of susgar made it just a bit sweet, really well put together. Super smooth. Not that much of the carbonation translated over, but enough to make this really nice. Went down well and was not too thin at all. Superb. They are not lying about creating a great session beer. This is the perfect session beer, could drink it forever.

Overall I was very much impressed here. It just was soo smooth and light you could drink it forever and not even know. If I was around it more it would stock my fridge constantly.Just a good, no, great beer.

Poured into a standard shaker pint glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As served the beer is a clear golden color with a ¼” white head that recedes to leave bits of lacing on the side. Eventually the head recedes to a ring around the glass. For about the first 1/3 of the beer sipping leaves some modest speckles of lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma is mostly from the malt so there’s some caramel and bready character. The hops are well in the background and there seem to be bits of pine and citrus, and the whole is quite plesant.

Taste: The flavor is pretty much as predicted by the nose. There is a nice malty character tinged with gentle citric and pine notes.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and the carbonation is there but not particularly active. The finis is medium long and begins in the malt. It then tapers gently off into some dry hop bitterness.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: I enjoyed this one and also found it went well the food I had ordered. There is nothing “in your face” about this beer and a gentle balance between the malts and the hopes is the order of the day. My overall impression is that this is a nice, well made beer that I’d be happy to have again. In addition I think it would be a great beer to have during an evening of dining and good conversation with friends.

A well carbonated beer with a light copper color and a pretty thick white head. The above average carbonation helps keep the head afloat for quite awhile.

Malty aroma

A good malty brew somewhat like a vienna style.
Some bread and toasted malts too.
A bit course or abrassive with a dry finish.
All in all a good pleasing brew

Served at Union Jack's Manatawny

Poured a clear golden amber with a nice cream colored head, good retention, and good sticky lacing. Smells of rye malts and a grassy/citrus hop combo. Tastes of lite grapefruit with a nice sweet malty backbone and a fresh cut grass finish. Medium in body with good carbonation and a dry bitter finish. A good balance of flavors though pushing a little more towards the hops end of the spectrum. A good Spring brew, easy to drink.

Twelve ouncer poured into a pint glass. Grabbed in a mixed six offering.

Pours medium amber, mostly light, with touches of foam. Malty rich caramel smell, some toffee. Hearty malt taste with a good firm hop. Nice bite at close, really pops the flavor.

Overall another good one from BP.

Pours a lighter fluffy but 1.5 finger head that fades at a med pace, over clear toasty amber orange colored beer and lacing.

Nose has light grassy hops, touch spicy hops, light sweet malts, lighter overall.

Taste has some bitterness, light grassy mild earthy and touch spicy hops, chewy hops, some light sweet malts, a very slight copper taste, reddish malts, and a nice bitterness overall. Finishes slightly dry and decent bitterness, little syrupy and sticky, light spicy and grassy hops lingering.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, nice hops, nice malt balance, doesn't do a whole lot but a nice overall balanced pale ale.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

A: Deep copper color. Lacy head.

S: Soft hop aroma (citrus).

T: Balanced taste, easy to drink. Finish stays in your mouth for a few beats with mild bitterness.

M: Medium body for the style, a little thin overall. Good amount of carbonation.

O: Certainly nothing exciting, but decent. An easy beer to grab out of the fridge on a warm afternoon when it's available.

Poured from 12oz bottle into 16oz Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Light copper in color with a large, slightly orange-tinted head that dissipates pretty quickly and leaves behind a lot of spots of lace.

Smell: Smells a lot like a pilsner- it has some sweet grain/malt aromas with citrus and a bit of a piney aroma.

Taste: Begins sweet and somewhat citrusy, rounding out to a fairly strong hop bitterness backed up by bready flavors.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with balanced carbonation and a dry finish.

Drinkability: A good beer that definitely seems like it would fit well with the spring. This is something I wouldn't get excited about, but it is a good beer to drink during the springtime.

I put my Brooklyn Pennant Ale back on the shelf and bought this on a whim. Then my wife yelled at me because she was waiting at the register.

The beer has a nice copper color with good lacing and an off white head.

The smell is malty with some new car hops thrown in. Biscuity vinyl hops.

Taste: Round malt is offset and broken by a sharp, slightly sour hop finish. The final taste is a sour flash and slight puckering bitterness

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Slightly peppery carbonation. The vinyl taste hinders drinkability.

Pours a hazy orange body with a thin white head, which does not last. Spotting not lacing the glass. Aroma of citrusy malt. Taste is citrusy with a good hop bite. Very acidic aftertaste that lingers a bit too long. Not in line to be one of my favorites!
