look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed 12 oz bottle out of a pint glass at Stoney River Steak House in Annapolis, MD.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a thin 1-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a non-existent lace.

S: Not a huge nose here – mild grains and hops with some hints of lemon and pine.

T: Slightly bitter flavor with hints of citrus grains and hops.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent golden ale – not my favorite beer from Clipper city – but it went down smooth and was easily drinkable.

Pours a pale golden straw, clear, small head dissipates quickly
Grassy hops on the nose, bready malt. Very light yeast.
Very balanced, hops are light but there, and just barely cut through the very light citrusy sweetness leaving a light crisp finish.
Carbonation is a little on the lighter side. A touch more would add to the crispness.
Decent. A nice little session that would taste good on a 95 degree day.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Hazy gold appearance with a thin white head. Lots of visible carbonation, spotted lacing. Too hazy for my liking.

S: Slightly floral scent, slightly metallic, but not much else.

T: At first it bursts with a fruity flavor...kind of an orange flavor. Then there is a distinct grain flavor which is very tasty. It might be a bit much with all the tartness, but I think it works ok.

M: It has a good mouthfeel. A lot of zing and carbonation, with a tart puckery low-medium body.

O: Overall I consider it a so-so beer. The flavor is pretty good, but the smell and appearance leave much to be desired. There's nothing that makes me want to buy another one of these.
