4.05/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- A bit of a cloudy copper beer with a 1/2 a finger of head on it. Not alot of lacing.

S- Has a sweet hop aroma with a bit of yeasty dough to it. very floral. I can get into this one. real good smell.

T- Good floral and hop taste. Tastes like it would go well with a slice of fresh Italian bread. Some faint touches of caramel and a bit of malt as well.

M- this has a kind of chewiness to it. Really fills up the mouth but it's not to thick. good carbonation to it..

O- I Think this is one of the better beers from heavy seas so far. it's a simple beer that is really easy to drink but with enough flavor to it to really make it great.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy orange appearance and color. Doesn't have a particularly strong smell, but nothing offensive about it. The beer drinks very smoothly, and is a Baltimore staple. Would recommend, but as a safe local standby. There are better beers in Baltimore, but you can't go wrong with this local favorite.

3.51/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Some slow bubbling activity keeps up a creamy, foamy sort of off-white head to rest at a consistent and well-retained half finger over a bright pale orange brew. Deposits of mixed spots and patches of lacing stick to the glass in a more than moderate quantity.
There seems to be a mix of American and English character here. Earthy and herbal quality mingle with a fairly obvious caramel malt, and there's a certain muskiness as well. There's a fruity element, a bit in the smell and more on the tongue, with a touch of toast and, more in the taste, a hint of citrus.
The body is light, verging on medium, and there's a tea-like quality to the English aspect that I think some attribute to the the mouthfeel but doesn't have quite that kind of impact. It does lack depth to a point, but it's a pretty good mouthfeel overall, bright and crisp and clean.
