    Hazy orange pour with minimal white head. Zero lace on the glass. Originally thought this was a Belgian wheat beer based on the aroma. No need to experience again.

    Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, quite crystal malty as well as mild grassy and floral hops. Flavour is honey, malts, some sweetness as well as mild grassy, floral and wooden notes as well. A bit thin as for the palate.

    Pours a golden orange with a low off-white head that doesn't last. Aroma is faint but malty. Mouthfeel is expected but on the light side. All in all it is pretty light and pretty watery. Blah.

    Oh to be in Key West on a summer evening with a cool ale in hand. This ale sets the stage in the label but falls short of delivering the ambience. Am orange-golden body with a little red tinge. The aroma just not there, no matter how far I put my nose into the glass. The taste is just as subtle. Okay, it is another cheap summer entry, crisp and refreshing.

    A slightly hazy orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet fruity with a slight touch of butter, while the flavor is sweet with notes of toffee, leading to a bitter end.

    Amber color with a head that quickly settles to a thin layer. Aroma is malty and grassy with just a hint of citrus fruit. Malty flavor with a light bitter hop profile, a bit saazy, and slightly sweet. Darker color and fuller than expected. Pretty basic but I like it for what it is.

    This blond ale pours a medium yellow gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of banana, touch of floral hops. A light to medium bodied blond/golden ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of grain and some banana. The hops are floral and sort of strong for a blond ale. Decent carbonation. Kind of mild tasting, it is a golden ale, but there is a touch of a hop bite. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a clear light amber with an average foamy head with OK retention but no lacing. Aroma of medium-sweet malt with a light touch of bitter hops. Taste is mostly based upon some medium-sweet malt and finish is slightly bitter. Body is about average with some OK carbonation. I guess this one is OK but nothing really to write home about.

    Pours a cloudy orange colour, with a very thin head. sweet malted aromas with a touch of fruitiness. Very heavy for an ale, i was pretty suprised, and evidently i wasn't the only one. perfect for a hot humid day down in the keys.

    Thanks to eaglefan538 for this one...it checks off another state and adds a beercap to my fridge. Unfortunately, that's about all I can say good about this one. The beer looked okay, I guess...coppery-red pour with smallish head...cloudy. The aroma and flavor were awful. Brett noted a "twang"...well, to me, it was more than that, but I don't dig it either. The flavor tried to be a nice malty with some hops present, but an awful sour finish to the beer that just didn't belong. The aroma had a cabbage-like aroma to it as well. Not good. I ALMOST poured it...ALMOST. ;)
