This beer holds its own. Bold, but not too distinctive. In general, a more drinkable alternative to the Back Bay IPA, though not as strong. A solid round, all the same.

Draft. Nice hop flavor and nicely balanced. It's nothing outstanding, but easy to drink

From a bomber. Copperish, with a rather thin head. Didn't get very much through the nose, although what was there was decent (it could have been from the atmosphere around me). Fruity, but not too much so. A little malty, a little more hoppy. Finished mildly with light lingering hop flavors.

On tap in Salem: Clear orange with a thin head. Sweet bready malt aroma, Grainy raosted taste that ends sweet. Fairly mild body without much carbonation.

Cask-conditioned Version: The beer is a somewhat hazy copper color. The server managed to get a little bit of a white head on mine. It dissapated rather quickly. Their deScription while short is rather to the pointand accurate: there is a fair amount of maltiness to this and not much in the way of hops. A little different balance than a typical pale ale, but still a pretty decent quaff!

Tried both cask-conditioned and non. Medium copper color with a white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Crisp flavor is initially somewhat fruity (peaches) and becomes more hoppy. Fairly strong finish of bitter hops lingers nicely. Body is full but not overly heavy, and combines with the flavor to produce a very refreshing overall effect.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2002
Beautiful pour - thick creamy white head atop a hazy golden brew. Aroma is malty, with a hint of flowery hops in the back. Flavor starts sweet, malty, small fruitiness, follows with a good mild hop ending which brings it all together.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 25, 2002
Nice color, perhaps a shade or two darker than most micro pales. This had and an admirable initial balance between the hop bitterness and malts, but in the end the hops came out on top. Not bad.
