Orangey-amber; earthy, woody, vienna malt notes - end of day this is a standard amber.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 23, 2006
(12oz bottle) Lightly hazed copper body topped by a small beige head that retains. Aroma is medium sweet, toffee/butterscotch/caramel, light chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, butterscotch/caramel, some chocolate. Light medium body, some stickiness. I assume this is supposed to be an English Pale Ale based on the characteristics I experienced.

Dogbrick (8135) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2003
From City Beverage in Winston-Salem. Pours a lightly hazy pale amber color with light effervescence. Thin off-white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped with a little caramel added. The body is on the light side and rather fizzy, with a light hops flavor throughout, and an underlying sweet maltyness. The finish falls a little flat and makes the beer a kind of bland overall. This could be better, because they have the foundation for a decent beer here.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Amber colored with aroma of fruity hops, malt, and spicy fruit. Tastes hoppy and citrusy, with a smooth finish.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle. Sweet pineapple-orange and hops aroma. Medium amber with small head. Sweet light pineapple-orange and syrup flavor with a light hops finish. Could benefit from more hops.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 13, 2002
My grandma’s tea, but that would say much to you so I shall say light brownish amber. Decent bitterness, rich, some orange. I like it.

beerguy101 (5284) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 6, 2002
Pale Brown color, small head. Mild malty aroma. Medium bodied pale ale. Mild malts and fairly hoppy. Good mild flavor. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Very drinkble milder Pale Ale. Nothing outstanding.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Copper/Orange - darker than I expected. Thin white head. Very little aroma. Mild hop bite at first, then a thin, kind of watery finish. Not really bad, just not much to it.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2006
12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy with amber-orange hue and fluffy off white head. Light molasses and caramel aroma with a hint of sprucy hops. Medium bodied with mostly caramel malt flavor. Slightly sweet with a touch of acidity at the end. Hop flavor is negligible.
