SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2008
On tap: This was a nice enough Pale that had some dry/bitterness in the finish. Okay but I preferred others in the flight and wouldn’t be ordering this one again.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Tap at Canal Street Location: Clear golden pour with a creamy, light tan head that leaves a nice lacing. Has a mild and smooth cascade character. Light grainy citrus aroma. There’s no complexity or nuances, but I enjoy the cascade flavor. Needs more bittering hops, but it’s decent stuff.

Had this on draught at the brewpub on Canal. Clear, deep amber pour with a filmy white head, piney hoppiness in the nose, granny smith apples and roses in the taste, a nice, clean finish. A good APA.

ClarkVV (4215) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Draught pint at Fenway locale on 7/31/07
Peachy-copper colored body is full of bubbles, sporting a frothy white head that recedes to cover, leaving minimal lace.
Sweaty hops and some yeast in the nose, giving not an overly fresh nose. It’s not dirty or anything, just a bit on the cheesy, grassy, catty side, with too much straightforward grapefruit and bitterness. Malt sweetness is fairly strong, relatively speaking and further sweetens things, though the simple base malt sugars add little/no complexity. Medium strength of aroma, obviously plenty of batch-to-batch variation. No alcohol or flaws, however.
Moderate carbonation helps dispense some of the sweetness, which is quite plain and does build up on the palate, with rather plain citrus hops adding candied orange, white grapefruit and some lemon notes. Bitterness could stand to be elevated to really dry it out, that or the attenuation taken up a notch. I think what bothered me the most was a persistent papery/flabby feel to the malt, which in turn, got bogged down in some wateriness on the end. Competent and probably a lot better off-season.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 17, 2007
On draft at Fenway location, of course. Dark gold beer with thin smooth head that coats the side of the glass. no aroma at first; as beer warms up grassy aroma emerges. Assertive hop flavor with a sweet malt upturn at the end. Not violently hoppy, but well-hopped.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2007
This traditional Pale ale oiffers not typical notes of citrus on the nose from the hops and this works into a balnced sweet palate with a lighlty bitter finish.

yespr (35031) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2007
Sample from tap at the brewpub in Canal street. Pours orange light brown with a white head. Aroma is grape fruit hops. Flavour is dry and bitter with a clear fruitiness and malt base. No sweetness what so ever. Dry and strong bitter finish.

Dogbrick (9439) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Sample at Beer Works Fenway (tower version): The beer is an orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very little lacing of which to speak. Citrusy hops aroma with hints of roasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter and dry. Overall another forgettable and average beer.

(Cask version): Very similar to the regular beer, just with more muted aromas and flavors. Also a rounder, softer finish. Same score.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Amber, white fizzy head. Faint nose of earthy nuttiness, florals, and citrus. Flavor was lightly bittered with more earthy citrus and a touch of toasted sweet malt. Light bodied, light carbonation, dry, lightly bittered finish. Beats BMC I suppose....
