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.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2008
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.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Floral, pine crystal malt aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Nice pine, floral hop flavors with a solid malty base--good

Braudog (5659) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Draft at the brewpub, 10/23/06: Nice visual draw ... deep amber with a poofy head. Not much past that. Vapid -- virtually no flavor. Body is good, otherwise just an even-keeled beer. Probably sells well, though. Light floral finish. The more I drank, though, the more I liked ... settled into a decent session beer.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent lighter copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of mildly bitter hops and pale malt with a touch of grain. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but grandpa’s APA.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2008
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.

Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear and deep amber. A beige head. A bitter and sweet start. Rich malts and complex fruit. Citrus along with floral and a whisp of rye. Dry at the finish.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2009
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.

Aurelius (4133) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Clear, medium woody brown, ringing thin head. Orange malty aroma. Nicely bittered, medium sweet at first then drying out. Bittering seems powdery at timees. Aftertaste is faint chocolate in the high palate, bitter on the side of the tongue. Nice balance with some character.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2011
The beer pours a surprising dark color, copper with a light tan head, not much retention or lacing. The aroma is lots of hops, seems like some cascade but that is it, not very balanced. The taste is light hops throughout with an unwelcome metallic finish. The feel is ok and drinkability is cut back by the metal aftertaste. To me its not an pale ale but an IPA and so-so one at that.

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.
