Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Light gold color, dominated with grains in the nose and some hops. Taste is hoppy as hell, but it’s not one of those in yer face hops things. Very smooth but the malts are too sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth enough though.

on cask at the brewpub...hazy copper pour with a creamy off white head. Soapy aroma, hint of hops, hint of DMS. Mild hop presence, some malt backbone, thin mouthfeel. Definite lack of hop presence hurts this "pale ale" - fruity, sweet, but no way bitter. Disappointing.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2005
On draught Feb 2005 at the brewery. Pale gold color, light tinge of orange, with a white head that lasts. Aroma of pale malt, light American hops and papery yeast. Flavor is gummy, with a light touch of sugar and a papery, yet lightly fruity flavor of hops and earthiness. Very strange, with dryness on the end. It dosent come together in any sort of way. Brassy, metallic notes finish the beer, with a medium body. Yeast and too much dryness this beer could do without.

On cask a couple drinks later. The creamy body does nothing to hide the light metal tones and over drying effect of the malt and hops. Light fruits, but nothing tremendously flavorful. Seemed old and stale, could be the end of the vat. Not sure, but I certainly wasnt impressed.

Nicely restrained Cascade hop aroma. Clear copper-brown with a lasting cover of white head. Sweet biscuity malts (Victory perhaps?) balance the flowery/citrusy hop flavour. Malt flavours fill the mouth and last nicely with a mellow balancing bitterness felt at the back of the tongue. Medium-light body and very drinkable. The cask version is especially good. On tap and cask at the brewpub with MartinT and Rastacouere.

MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Cascadey grapefruit, flowery hops react nicely to the earthy yeast presence...Crunchy malt biscuits create comfortable spiciness with the help of the hops...Oranges are plentiful in the light but quenching body for an all-around pleasurable pint...

Rastacouere (6131) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Cask. Bright golden yellow. Superb rocky white head sticks to the glass wonderfully. It looks fine. Great improvement from the tap version which would have garnered at least .5 less. This is a quaffer. Aroma is slightly grainy, very herbal. Orangey c-hops are quite aromatic, perfumey rather than agressively citrusy. Cookie-like maltiness. Rather citric, tart, yet counterparting spiciness compensates and makes it a well balanced pint. Nice medium body with fitting carbonation. Mild and pleasant despite the name.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Light golden honey amber. Floral, herbal hop nose. Small thin head. Starts with a light bready malt flavor, light bodied, sweet, finishing with a dose of cascade, bitter and lingering hops. Not bad...a run-of-the-mill pale.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2003
Has a light amber color and a light floral/hop smell. Taste is slighty malty and finishes with a nice kick of hops. Overall, very good, I am going to try a bigger sample of this next time...
