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.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Good malt and hop aroma with hops to the forefront. Balance of malt and hops but not enough bitterness (even by english standards). Fermented dry finish leaves a winey character. More of a warm finish than a hoppy or dry finish.

While I like Barley’s Pale Ale, it suffers from being compared to the older, more widely available Columbus Pale Ale. It has a good color and taste to it, but the Columbus Pale Ale is still the better of the two.

Draft sampler at Barleys Smokehouse (Ale House #2). Dark amber color, sweet malty aroma, nice hop/malt balance in the flavor. Decent.

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

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.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2004
This is one of my favorite pale ales. Nice brown color, smaller white head. Full nose of citrus hop goodness. Tart grapefruit flavor with a moderate amount of sweet malt to balance. Great pale ale.

3.5
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
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.

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Slight cherry aroma and taste. Some malt towards the end. Not much going on.

3.6
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2007
Nice hop aroma. Deep amber color. Centenial hop presence, lingering finish. Overall, good for a pale ale.

tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2003
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.
