    pleasant enough, but ultimately uninspired. i'd prefer the more robust and refreshing flavor of a sam smith's organic to this one...just not enough to get excited about.

    Pours a cloudy orangeish colour with a large fruity white head. Floral hops and sweet malts in the aroma, a little sweeter than what i expected it to be. pleasent none the less. finishes creamy with a lingering hop taste.

    The orange-brown coloring and thin head was very nice, but that was about it as far as enjoyable qualities here. The aroma was faintly citrus-like and hoppy, but on the sour side. The taste was very sour and not enjoyable at all.

    Pours a light, yellowy-brown with scattered head. The aroma is simple and balanced, but lacks the malty richness of the best amber ales. Light-to-medium body and amply carbonated. Flavor is light and balanced, however I noted an unpleasant metallic quality in each of the bottles I sampled.

    Sampled from bottle. Pours cloudy orange-copper with a creamy, off-white head and frothy lacing. Aroma is mild and spicy. Its flavor is slighly bitter and hoppy (pine & spice). Bitterness lingers. Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated. Not too complex, but easy to drink and quite refreshing.

    Hazy medium amber with a small head despite a vigorous pour. The aroma is lightly malty with a slightly floral hoppiness. The flavor is really a pretty balance malt and hop blend. A decent session beer.

    Light brown color, medium head. A medium bodied ale. Medium malts and hops. Slightly sweet malts. Nice hop spiciness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Clear golden color with a medium head, this brew is slightly citric in flavor, but nothing out of the ordinary. It’s a good lawnmower beer. thx to elnadeau for sharing.

    Pours pretty well very nice rich brown color ( almost glows!), nice head. Smells also nice , spciy and aromatic..which is odd given the taste. Taste after the initial "hit" is pretty awful..did not enjoy it at all. Really strange..very chemical hard to explain in an Organic ale. Felt average in the mouth, nothing special. With the taste after the first few mouthfulswas hard to drink the whole bottle ( I did because it was pretty spendy). All in all a dissapointment, hope this was a one off bad batch.

    The aroma is a bit malty and smokey with even hints of aged wood. The appearance is lacking somewhat and is a very light amber with a white head that vanishes immediately. The mouthfeel is light to medium-bodied with some complexity and not exactly well-balanced. The flavor is hoppy with some smokey malt to balance the flavor out but is a bit thin and could be more creamier and more hoppy. Overall, this ale was a bit too malty with not enough hops but was unique and an interesting beer to try.
