On tap @ Home Brew Mart: Poured a pure golden honey color with a thin film for a head. Aroma is faint and I’m unable to really pick up any scents and that’s because the atmosphere inside today is so loud and crowded—Friday evening. The flavor is much more promising with a pleasant balance between semi sweet malts and a bitter bite of hops. Actually is quite refreshing for being just an ordinary pale ale style.

Gonna go against the grain here, really enjoyed this one. Sharp clean golden yellow pour with a full two fingers of sticky off-white head. I am really impressed by the symbiosis of English and American style Pale Ales here as this beer presents both in cooperation and contrast. The nose shows the bready/biscuity character typical of English style beers along with some graham cracker notes. An herbal and lightly citric hop character shows through and shines even more in the flavor. Clean, round, and balanced. Light bodied with a dry finish and just enough hop bite. Mucho gusto

Draft. Not looks nice head. Almost like a IPA. Quite bitter for a pale ale. Dry. Very dry.

Tap at Milltown. Bronze golden with a thin white spitty head. Nose is fairly muted, some earthy and mineral character,light fruit, semisweet malts. Fairly clean, grassy finish. Fine, but easily forgettable.

On tap at Urge. Honey amber pour with little to no head. Nose is sweet and roasty. Taste is warm apricot to roasty bitter. Really drinkable and full for a pale ale.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a white head. A somewhat malt forward pale ale. A lot of bread and biscuit aromas with some leafy, floral hops and a bit of citrus peel. Mild grass notes, too. The flavor is a bit sweet and bready, some biscuit in there, too. A pleasant bitterness along with plenty of floral hop flavors and a light citrusy quality. Very easy drinking and refreshing pale ale.
