Old Review
12 oz bottle I poured into a shaker pint. Handed to me out of a fridge stocked with Magic Hat and other Vermont brews in anticipation for my arrival. Hey, drink local right?

A: Poures a clear, coppery, orange with a touch of head. The beer has some carbonation activity but nothing too crazy. Has some decent amount of head but very little retention. What head does exist produces some sticky lacing.

S: Smell is of floral hops, citrus rind, apricots, and malt. I only rated it a 3 because although these aromas were present, they were very faint.

T: Taste is a good balance of floral hops and light, sweet malt. Citrus and apricot are present but not in your face. Bitterness is minimal but I believe that is what they trying to achieve with their "not so pale ale". Mission accomplished.

M: Light bodied brew that really has goes down clean and crisp. Has a good carbonation level and makes this pretty refreshing. Only took some hits because I like my APAs to have a bit of stickiness to them that keeps the flavors in the mouth a bit. Finished bit too clean.

D: This is a very sessionable brew. Has some great taste, low ABV, and a good refreshment level. It is easy to loose track of how many you have put down. My type of every day brew.

Review from 12/28/06

A - Light golden colored body with massive bubble movement in the glass. Bright white 1.5 inch head that is very soapy looking.

S - Pale malt with a huge fruity odor to it. Ripe red fruit. Raspberry.

T - Big fruity sweetness combines with pale malts. Very clean. No aftertaste to speak of.

M - Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is ok, but could probably be improved a bit.

D - Overall, a very interesting beer, but not something I will really search for.
