COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style pale ale, brewed with pale and crystal malts and a touch of oats. Copious amounts of Cascade Hops are added late in the boil for a pleasant floral and citrus aroma. A very refreshing ale that may leave you wanting another.

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Hoppier than typical for a pale, pretty satisfying. Pine, citrus, good clean biscuity malt bill. Not bad, better than expected.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark yellow-gold color with a small foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dry and bitter with faint vague fruity and floral hops. The flavor was very bitter and rough with vague fruity and flora hops, a bit of buttered bread and almost corn. Medium length bitter hops and corn finish. Medium body. Not good.

evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Light orange color. Cascade-y hops and a solid malt back. Not a bad smell, but the taste drops the hops. Mostly malt, not bad.

Block (1400) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
A little bit stronger than the Dirty Blonde. A step up with the malts and hops. They seem to up the flavors slowly at Barley and Hops.
