This is a great quaffable session pale ale. Simple soapy, citrus hop aroma, with a slight caramel/toffee maltiness. Good balance and mouthfeel.

English style ale rather than the west coast style most of us are used to. Hoppy profile reminds me of rabbit food but not in a gross way. Very herbal aroma. Full flavored, crisp, and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Light orange coloring, almost copper, with an off-white head. This was balanced but pretty boring for a pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, bright copper body with a just off-white head. Mild, pale malt nose with little hop aroma. Some spicy hop flavor but the malts still lead and overpower a bit. Slight iced tea character. Boring pale ale.

Draft. Coppery medium brown pour. Woody citrusy hoppy aroma. Nice malty flavor with decent hopy flavors, and a light to moderate bitter finish.

Tap, served in sampler glass. A good american pale ale, I don’t know if I buy the mix of IPA and ESB. Good aroma of hops with some malt.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The description on the menu was that this beer was a cross between an English Pale Ale and an ESB. I thought they did a pretty good job at it: the balance between malt & hop is good. The aroma is very nice.
