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

-a fine cloudy orange brown color. thin white head, but it's sticking around for the most part

-lots of good fruits in the sniff. apple for sure, maybe a hint of citrus and nana. some kind of harsh tobacco smell in there too for some reason as it warms a bit

-sweet, but some solid bitterness in there. like a grapefruit that was burnt a little.

-very crisp and a decent dryness to it with a little bite

-it is quite drinkable for the style. i have definitely had better, but on the other hand, i have had worse too. overall, i like drinking it

12 ounce bottle I found in my refrigerator from a recent trip to PA. Poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Medium to deep amber color, with a thick creamy white head that leaves lots of lacing.

S: Picked up some grassy hop aromas along with some honey and bread flavors. Also picking up some earthy tobacco smells as well.

T: A little sweet and peppery notes up front before some bitter hops takes over in the middle. Lots of bready malt flavors throughout to balance things up. Very nice.

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated.

D: This beer has done well sitting for 6 months -- I don't recall enjoying it as much as I when I first got it. Nice sipping beer on a cold winter night (like tonight) or would go well with a hearty stew.

pours a orange / brown body and a nice bubbly frothy head. Smells lightly of orange zest - fruity. A hint of mustyness from the yeast, sweet malt. Overal tast is lighter than i expected, a bit peppy. From the traditional style i would expect a heavy malt presence. Sweet and zesty up front, mellow in the middle with a hint of orange, and the hop finish is zesty grapefuit, soapy bitter, but just enough to balance the beer. This is not a hop head beer (thank god). Mouthfeel is watery, slightly oily / slick. Good carbonation as it flows. Dinkability is good, you could finish a six pack in a night and not be upset about it.

Poured into a Town Hall Brewery globe on August 11th 2011.

Pours a very beautiful honey color with hues of amber and red. Head is huge and then leaves no lacing. I wish this had more lacing but other then that its spot on.

Smell is of sweet malts of course and then a lot of lemon peel. Smells great.

Taste is... Wow so sweet! Tons of honey sweetness and then some hop citrus but holy crap is that sweet. Great taste even after several months of being sent to me the citrus balances. I wish I had it fresh.

Mouthfeel is medium. The tangy taste is present on the end of the pallet but its a great weight.

Overall this is an excellent. Oh so sweet and tasty for the style. Great job.
