reddish and dark for the style. some citrus hops to the nose. flavor of moderate bitterness before some medium to high lovibond crystal malt flavor before the citrus and floral hop flavor. not a great beer on draft, but the cask version is a solid apa

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at smokehouse- pretty nice offering- very drinkable fruit and hop flavors- certainly balanced towards the hop, but fits the bill nicely.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft@ Barleys Pours a good clear amber with small off white head. The head leaves quickly but laced well. Has okay aromas of malt, spices, and a little bit of hops. Has a decent carbination. A pretty good mouthfeel. The flavors were light and well represented but lacked some boldness. Has a medium body. A pretty good finish. A watery texture and an okay aftertaste. Not my favorite one they brew but good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Smokehouse. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Mostly malt in the aroma with a touch of earthy hops. Malty and earthy flavor, but not much going on. Sorta weak and thin. I think they may have been going for drinkability on this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A drinkable pale ale that, while not outstanding, felt more interesting than most of their lineup the night I visited.
Gentle spicy, citrusy hoppiness with considerable earthy background. No excess of acidity. Light-bodied and aimed at drinkability. Crisp body. Short-lasting, but effective bitterness.
Minimally toasted malts where it feels like it would be a fine match. Dull clear light amber body.

Had on tap at the Columbus Microbrewery Festival. Is a balanced pale ale from a solid establishment.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber with tight off white head and lace. Medium hops aroma and sweet maltiness. Roasted malt flavor with light to medium bitter. A foamy medium bodied beer. Nice lingering bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent pales here. C-hop aroma, medium mouthfeel. High IBU for a pale, so its the lineup’s IPA replacement. Drinkable, but not enough for a true hophead,

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A well balanced typical American Pale Ale. Good session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub (SmokeHouse location, AleHouse #2)
The look: Clear dark golden body with a small white head
In long: Nice rich malt profile for a Pale Ale. Toasted malts were just enough caramelized to meet the leafy fruity hops. Medium bitterness with a citrus skin flavour. Well put together for sure but lacked the crisp freshness feel that makes me go wow! with a brewpub Pale Ale. A good beer although so typical of the style that it will stick to my memory like a politician sticks to his promises.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft@ Smokehouse. This poured a dark ruby orange. Lightly and refreshingly hopped with a sweet caramel malt aroma. This beer has some cirtus character to it, but nothing too strong. Slightly above average for a pale ale.
