On cask for charity night at the Brew Works. A nice sparkling pale ale with a small head. A little bit cloudy from cask, served at cellar temp. Exceptionally smooth creamy palate. Refreshing hoppy character from this amazingly fresh cask beer. Excellent, I had two!

Nice creamy head, dark bronze-like color. Medium body. Aroma of hops and some citrus. Very hoppy taste. This beer tastes very similar to an IPA.

Great APA, very crisp & smooth & drinkable, amber to light copper in color, good white head, nice lacing around the glass, lots of hops in the nose, very well balanced, had a nice malt character to balance out the hops in the flavors, medium in body, slightly dry finish, spicy aftertaste

Draft... GBOA ’06... Clear yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Earthy, fruity nose with apricot esters and notes of pine and wood. Earthy, well-balanced flavor with moderately bitter grapefruit rind and light residual sugar. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp, mildly bitter and grassy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Well out of my six beer sampler, which was very reasonably priced for the size samples you get, this one was the best by far. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with an average size fluffy white head that lasted for quite sometime as my pint sat there and I finsihed off some other sample size beers. Aroma has lots of grapefruit and citrus with some biscuit notes from the malts. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation and a slightly dry finsih. Flavor of citrus rind that is rather bitter with some biscuit and toast. This beer is just slightly dry and comes off with a good touch of bitterness but still enjoyable none the less.

On tap at the Bethlehem location. Poured a medium amberish color with a medium sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, toasted malts, and pine. Tastes of citrus (more than the aromas), pine, and some caramel.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BBW, this might be the darkest pale ale I have ever seen. A cloudy bronze colored body, thin white head, and aroma of some citrus fruits and sweet hops lead into a flavor that is very much the same. I thought this has a ton of flavor for its class, and the body was around medium with a clean, crisp bite.

This was a decent pale ale typical of the style. I would drink this again.
