COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our light copper pale ale has a delicate malt attribute balanced by an aggressive hop flavor and aroma. Many American micros have developed their own version of this classic English style beer. Our brewers anticipate that you will enjoy their variation.

hopscotch (8544) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Hazy, straw-colored beer with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Short-lived with no lacing. The aroma is malty with huge notes of milk chocolate and cream. At the same time, it appears that there is a skunk in the area. It's down-wind, but present nonetheless. I'm not gonna deduct points for the critter as it is probably only present due to the lengthy and bumpy ride/flight from Harrisburg to my home. Grapefruit and evergreen also abound in the nose. The flavor is very nice. Malty and rich up front (there's that damn skunk again), but balanced nicely on the backside with moderately bitter floral and citrus flavors. A tad pungent as well. Light-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. A very long, dry, lightly bitter and acrid finish with more of that wonderful milk chocolate and caramel at the wee end. Not world class, but certainly worth a try. I recommend you try one at the brewery as the bottles obviously don't travel or store very well.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 On tap at the 2004 Kennett Square BF. Poured a cloudy, medium amber color. Nothing to prominent in the tastes or smells. Not bad but nothing that really stood out. 5 4 5 3 12

Cask version tasted on 5/19/06. Much better than my last sample. Aromas of pine, citurs and caramel. Tastes of caramel with very light citrus. 7 4 6 4 14
