Draught sample at the brewpub. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells earthy. Tastes earthy with a light spicy hint on the finish. Decent.

Tal at the brewpub - Amherst. Poura clear gold with a fine, white head. Really basic stuff, all pale bread, pine needles, soap, hay, faint lemon. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with minimal bitterness, some lemon meringue, white bread. Meh.

Draft at brewpub. Pours with an orange tinge. Not much on the nose. A slight hop note on the tongue but it’s very faint. Clean finisher. Not really knocked by this one either.

In short: A low intensity and clean pale ale that simply tastes “fresh”. Nice session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear light golden body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: Nose is lightly hoppy, a bit leafy, a bit citrusy. Taste has a solid crisp pale malt backbone with low sweetness sensation (dried baguette flavor) with soft notes of leafy and citrusy hops. Bitterness level is low for an american pale ale. Far from intense, this is not a tasty beer. But it is very pleasant to drink and just had that “freshness” taste that I only get from some brewpub beers. Nothing remarkable about here, but I could drink 6 pints of this beer in a row. The current rating average of this beer is 2.85!!??!! Absurdly underrated. But I respect other raters. My life motto is: Before I laugh at someone, I remind myself that I probably tapped the beat of a Limp Bizkit song at some point in my life.

On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear amber.
Aroma : Nice malt with nice citrusy hops. A bity mineral. Some earthy notyes.
Taste : Citrusy and a bit earthy. Nice malt. Finish is citruysy and earthy. Nice soft carbonation.
Overall : I really enjoyed this one. Interesting mix between english and american hops. Like the mix between earthy/mineral hops with the citrusy and piny ones. Nice carbonation level. Better than their IPA and much better than the smoked.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Pale golden beer with a touch of haziness in it. A lovely floral/citrusy hop nose. Pale malts with a kiss of honey on the back. Good balance although it could certainly be a bit hoppier. There is a bit of soft pale malt but it doesn’t really come to the fore all that much. Fairly simple APA.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Cold on tap: Pours a clear medium golden orange color with a thin layer of light tan bubbles. Aroma is of malt, grass and flowers. Taste is of light malts with pungent hops and notes of light fruits and caramel. Watery texture and crisp, with ample carbonation. Ending is malty and sweet.

golden in color. Aroma is light citrus notes with some fruity notes as well as a touch of malts. Taste is citrus and fruit, thin bodied with medium carbonation. could use a bigger malt backbone.
