COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Pale Ale is a blend of two well-known English styles, Extra Special Bitter and India Pale Ale. It is golden amber in color, mild in taste, but crisp, with a fruity, hoppy nose. Lionheart is full flavored, but not extremely bitter nor cloyingly sweet.

Best of the beers I had at the 5 Seasons brewpub in Atlanta. Reading the description on the menu "Blending Extra Bitter and IPA" made me believe I was in for a hopfest, but that was not the case. Slight hop presence and a little more complex than the Sisters and Alt beers but nothing to write home about. This brewpub is a nice place to eat, play pool, etc but the beers are lacking. Overall this one was ok.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 A very shy cascade aroma and flavor. Malt presence is also understated. Lightly bitter flavor. Watery flavor/mouthfeel really is the biggest detractor here. I didn’t take notes on this last night, but I tried it again. Seemed more flavorful than my previous experiences with it. Moved the score up from a 3.0

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JUN 4, 2008
This is a great quaffable session pale ale. Simple soapy, citrus hop aroma, with a slight caramel/toffee maltiness. Good balance and mouthfeel.

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

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Nice amber color. Not much hop aroma in this one. Slight hop bite that dies quickly. A little the light side of the style.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2002
Just like aracauna said, this is a very timid APA. The hoppiness is there in the background but seems too shy to come out and play.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2005
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.
