Pale ale not. This ale is complex and full bodied . very flavorful. Nothing pale in its color. Very good.

Sampled @ Mass Brewers Fest @ Julio’s. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Malt, fruit and hops on the aroma. Nice balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at 29 Sudbury. Ordered this because I had never heard of it (and that’s enough for me), figured it was some other beer in disguise for marketing purposes and wasn’t expecting anything great. Surprised to find that it was pretty darn tasty, a solid pale ale with it’s own character. Not too sweet malt flavors combined with a nice subtle hop balance. Very drinkable.

Well dam. I bought this thinking it just some other small mass brewery putting out simple beers and expectations were low. But clear light amber with piney hop aroma. Plus belgium bubblegum light yeast element. Big fluggy head and a full mouth feel. Recommended fully enjoyable pale ale, must find on tap.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Burnt-red brown with medium tan head. Aroma caramel, malt, hay. Medium body. Flavor is a fair amount of malty sweetness but finishes with dry but not too bitter english-like hops. Not bad, something a little different.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a pretty unique beer. Given to me by a distributor for consideration in my store. 22oz bomber serve in a Duvel tulip. 5.4%ABV great American Pale with an very prominent "turnipy" Aroma. Appearance is a deep amber, caramel. Aroma is straight Turnip in a pressure cooker (reminds me of grandmas house Thanksgiving morning) Mouthfeel is very creamy with a nice balance of sweet and dry. Taste is quite unique. Not like anything i’ve had and quite enjoyable. Still admiring the lacing as i finish it up! Recommend you give it a try

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Tan head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Caramel and resin aromas. Soft with dark caramel upfront turning to resin and bubblegum in the lasting finish.
