Compared to a Pre-Prohibition American Style Beer, this is a Full Bodied Ale with a Well Balanced Hoppy Finish

Sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2004. Light amber colored with an average-sized white head. Caramelly and hoppy aroma - a good balance. Nice hop bite to the flavor is herbally and nearly tear-inducing at times. Slightly sour finish.

Festival tap: Gold/copper with cascade hoppy nose. tangy malts are strong and balance well. Finish is very hoppy and citrusy, bitter.

On tap at the brewpub. Deep copper in color. Very perfect example of the style. The first and last taste is very bitter, but an undelying mid-current of sweetness tells you to not worry. Good calcium sulphate content. This is the kind of beer that alerts you to the fact that these people know what they are doing when they make beer. No fear of hops in an era of bland and mundane pale ales.

This is truly and exceptional pale ale. In this day of microbrews and craft brews, everyone seems to be brewing a pale ale. However this is an exception and it stamps the words pale ale with authority. Clear amber color, with a nice citrusy hop aroma. Taste is clean with no vegetal aroma, clean allowing the malt to shine briefly for a bit until the hops come through. Wonderfully done !
