COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Well-balanced and slightly fruity, this is our flagship ale. We use authentic two-row English malted barley, including both Pale and Crystal malt. We add three varieties of hops including Kent Goldings, the variety that gives British Isle ales their world-wide following.

another unimpressive pale ale. I expect a lot more from my pale ales so this was a dissappoint ment. I didn't get a good flavor of hops or barley. Bland

Bland, not much taste good or bad. To me there was nothing overly fantastic about this APA. It did linger a little too long on the tongue though.

A nice deep amber pour with a good white head. Aroma and flavor of noble hops is very good with subtle fruit and malt flavors as well. A very good beer that seems to vary in quality at the smokehouse.

From the tap at Ale House No. 1. Dark amber in color with a big beige head and great lace. Lots of hops, tending toward fruity apple and citrus flavors. Well balanced and great with food.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2003
Brown with a small head. Almost no aroma. Mild hop flavor. Slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Dark brown body with a thin but persisitent white head. Slight maltiness in the nose. No hops in the nose. Good balance in the hop/malt department. It’s odd to have an APA that isn’t in the 70-100 IBU range and I like it. A little too carbonated, want to try on the beer engine sometime to compare. A bit prickly on the back of the tongue.

12/28/02: on tap at the smokehouse. not much aroma. a bit darker than your average pale ale- nice color, in fact. minimal head with lacing. small amount of dish soap taste (this is not a negative comment, it is how hops taste to me at times.) pretty tame beer which includes a bit of a hoppy taste.

Barley’s is an above average brewhouse even their beers of styles I don’t like are great. This is one of many examples of their prowess.

ReRate from 2/10/02: I didn’t give this enough props before! I just had it again this weekend and I was reminded of how good it is! VERY Hoppy, gives that slight stinging tounge sensation. A bit too carbonated - but still really excellent.

An English pale ale but still well hopped. I think this beer ranks up there with CPA but they are different styles of pale ale. Slight maltiness complements the bittering hops. Excellent color and mildly carbonated.
