The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has some wheat notes, as well as some grass, lemon and a bit of orange. The flavor is similar. There is a lot of wheat, caramel and biscuit malt notes, as well as some white pepper and orange peel. I get only a slight amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle pours a hazed gold color with a fluffy off-white head. Decent retention and leaves a nice sheet of lace.

Nose is zesty, herbal and floral hoppy goodness. The Herkules hop is an interesting varietal indeed. The base beer is crisp and grainy smelling with a little bit of earthy biscuit.

Taste is crisp and delightful with a zing of floral hop flavor...this hop is almost spicy. More hop flavor than hop bitterness and the malts stay light and neutral. This is one of the better 'showcase-hop' beers I have had and some nice lemongrass comes out as it warms. Mouthfeel is light and breezy, just an easy drinking APA. This is one of those beers I will be happy to pick up another sixer.

Color- light gold.

Aroma- pineapple, pine cones, and new latex gloves.

Taste- Starts with a refreshing citrus then finishing with a dull dry bitterness as if the hops were stale. A disappointment from Real Ale in Blanco, Texas.

Tasted on 12/31/2012. Bottle had a "best by" date of 1/27/2013.

Bought a 6 pack at HEB in Round Rock for about 8 bucks.

Very odd look on this one. Yellow/orange hue, decent head and more than adequate lacing, but just a ton of sediment floating around in the pint glass. Looked a bit unappealing.

An odd scent as well...some sour funk, earthy hops, maybe a ripe apple too? Not bad, just not sure how to categorize.

Taste is similar to the smell. An almost sour, earthy hoppiness and some very biscuity malt. Getting a fairly heavy bit of lemon rind as well. This one is just hard to categorize. A very dry, slightly bitter mouthfeel makes you want to take another sip.

It almost seems like this beer is in the final stage...just not quite ready for prime time. I may be judging too harshly based on the amount of sediment.

Not one of my Real Ale favorites.
