3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #2,100 (by far the oddest milestone video I have seen). 5 oz sampler at the brew pub (#2) in Columbus, Ohio. Pour is hazed orange copper with a smallish light tan head. Aroma has some faint fruit sweetness up front, followed quickly by toasted malt, and a hint of Crystal malt in there as well. Taste is the bright sweetness up front, then a nice toasted maltiness finishing with a very slight roastiness. Palate is medium bodied, lower carbonation level and a dry mineral finish. This beer worked well with the barbeque. Clean and fresh, nice one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Barley's #1. A very average APA that pours a bit darker than most (deep copper-red with a thin off-white head), yielding an aroma of pungent spicy, peppery, piney hops. English hops lend an earthy/buttery flavor that interplays with piney and spicy hops and toasty caramely malts. A typical example of the style, no more, no less.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from tap and cask on 11/08/2006 at Barleys Smokehouse (Ale House #2)...
Regular Tap version: Amber color. Creamy, off-white colored crown. Aroma and flavor are toffee/caramel malt. Lots of malt in the taste, as well as a light bitterness. Smooth and creamy in the mouth.
CASK version: Hazy amber color. Aroma reminds me of sweet peaches. The flavor is sweet and tangy, with a hint of yeast. Very mellow and smooth in the mouth, but slightly watery. I think the cask version is much better than the "regular" version...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on draft at Alehouse #1 - Pours deep dark amber with a fine offwhite head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit over caramel malts. A bit of frosted flakes in the flavor but otherwise this is caramel and c-hops. Palate is crisp clean and smooth. This is a pretty drinkable and tasty APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of the discount flight I got.
The appearance was a pale orange color with no head and no lacing.
The smell had a mostly sweet maltiness running about. No soapiness came in as I was slightly expecting it.
The taste was mainly malty sweet with an ample amount of a sweet aftertaste that bled into a semi - wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed to somewhat restrained but still acceptable.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good English pale ale I would have again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled from a growler. Thin head of dense bubbles. Reduces slowly to a thin wisp of foam. Decent carbonation for being rebottled. Strange aroma. Sweet with vanilla, caramel, peat and a slight hint of something stinky. Very strange. Stinky aroma goes away as the brew sits and the vanilla and caramel comes through strong. Color is a dark copper orange. Flavor is roasty and dry. Has some rye character and a little harsh roastyness. Little bit of fruit also. Dry, bitter, and chalky palate at the finish. Hops character is prominent at the finish but not as much in the flavor. A decent pale ale that may have changed a little between here and there. Thanks to Dogbrick for this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the alehouse: Copper colored pour with an off white head. Aroma, floral and citrus hops, some pale malts. Flavor, bready and pale malts, up front, some light earthy and citrus hop notes. Solid pale, nothing special.
