2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
6 oz sampler on tap at their Camp Hill brew pub.
Pours a medium copper amber color from a 12oz bottle.
Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, toast and lightly hoppy.
A light to medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, toffee and a touch bready. The hops are a little mild for an APA, a touch grapefruity and citrusy too.

Sort of takes like a lager. Wouldn’t consider it a pale ale. Has a lager smell to it as well.

Bright, clear citrine with a small white head. Standard twistoff longneck, good label. Dry, slightly musty malt aroma. Candied tasting, but not too sweet. Very average, but sessionable. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from his NE Atlantic swing.
