COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A quintessential American pale ale, brewed with a blend of American hops. This copper colored ale is well balanced and pleasantly bitter with a spicy-citrus hop aroma, produced by a blend of Cluster and Cascade hops.

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.

On tap @ Beer Works Boston. Pours clear amber with a small white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is a gentle citrus hop with mildly sweet malts. Taste is coppery, roasty malt up front with (cascade?) hops on back end. Medium finish on the periphery of the tongue. Easy drinking nice beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Cask at the brewpub. poured a clear medium orange color with an off white head. Well balanced aromas of malty caramel and citrusy hops. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with lowish carbonation from the cask. There was mild to moderate bitterness and the flavor profile included the likes of flower blossom, citrus fruits (lemon, orange), and caramel. Nice, especially from the cask.

Cask at the Fenway location. Pours a cloudy orange with a sliver of white head. Aroma of grassy,citrusy hops. Flavor is also very hop forward with hop resins and caramel malt. Actually quite a tasty hoppy cask ale. I’d recommend it! 8/4/7/4/14 (3.7/5)

uglybastard (101) - Riverside, California, USA - JUL 13, 2002
Thin head with a dark, reddish-brown body. Earthy-hoppy nose with a bit of maple syrup smell as well. Has a tree-bark and coffee flavor to it. Slightly spicy. Very interesting flavor and color for a pale ale.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2002
A bit darker then expected of a pale. Malt sweetness in the nose, with a malt and raisen mouthfeel. Mellow hop bitterness and a fairly chewy consistancy. Nice flavorful version of a european pale ale. Was a bit sharp even being from a cask.

Not a bad beer. On tap at the restaurant across from Fenway. Smooth, nice color. Nice grassy taste, buttery finish. Go Yankees!
