COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This stronger, maltier, and hoppier pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. Cascade dry hopping gives this popular brew a fresh, floral nose.

A red, cloudy beauty! Fresh, hoppy (to me) aroma, fruity like down there at the pink rim of the watermelon rind...I swear that’s how it smelled! Sweet and bitters mingle nicely. Quite good. A bit thinnish.

Tap. A nice amber color with well laced head. Flavor included chocolate, dry, and some roasted flavors. The best one of the evening.

This is a really enjoyable beer. The other reviewer is right, in that its not that hoppy. Taken on its own terms, its really good though. Very easy drinking, and still falvorful and complex enough to keep me interested.

I like the ABC a lot; they have a beautiful copper top bar and make fine beers. This beer is a good brew but disapointingly off balance for a ’bitter’ - it tends toward the malty feel of a scotch ale and the hops seem almost an afterthought. Still, it’s lovely to look at and a good one to go for if the guys say ’one more round’ and you just can’t see putting down another full bodied porter or stout.
