A nice color, nice balance between malt and hops.....a piney slightly citrusy taste. I am sorry, but this is every bit as good as doghead fish 60, and I would rather drink 3 of these before 3 Pliney the elders. Good job, and its a Pennsy brew.

12/28...on tap in Allentown PA....Pours medium bronze with heavy foam. Heavy bitter in the nose. Sweet malt with a shift to a heavy bitter. Creamy. Nicely balanced.
