3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Pony Bar, New York, simply as American Pale Ale, 6% ABV
Amber color; small head. Not much American, it’s more kind of an English Golden Ale; the aroma is maybe too light; also the malt and toffee flavor is light, as well as the body, but it has some pleasant earthy touch; correct bitterness; the final is quite dry. Pleasant.

(Cask at Chelsea Cask Festival) Golden and clear. Small white head. Hops, malts and white bread in aroma. Medium bodied palate with low carbonation. Malts, hops, grain, bitterness, sweetness and fruitiness in taste. Bitter and grainy aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

<i>Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY.</i> Pours a clear yellow with an average size diminishing white head. Pleasant resiny hops aroma with some grain coming through as well -- a bit mild but nice. Flavour’s a little grainier and biscuitier then I would like with the hops showing more in the finish -- still good though. Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. Not bad though not necessarily something I would get again, not with the selection Coles has.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Very good APA. Nice hop aroma & flavor. As fresh hop beers are concerned this is right up there with Sierra Harvest. Very drinkable well balanced APA. Hops definately are the story here and they should be. Fresh NYS hops. Somewhat piney & citrusy. Great beer

from the cask at rattle n hum nyc this beer was a bit flat but still chock full of good,good flavor! a treat for the nose and tastebuds and not to be missed by those who are hop oriented. after finishing your glassful is when you will detect the fine barley and straw aspects of thei beer. the citrus fruit and pine flavors well presented in a fine aroma will placate you’re desire for great beer taste. quite nice!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 On tap growler from the Whole Foods beer store. Dark gold with a big, fluffy head and a tangy, yeasty aroma. A rich, hoppy brew with a pleasant, yeasty bitterness. A little peppery - it tickles the sinuses, then finishes smoothly. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a lightly hazy amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of perfume, floral hops, light citrus fruits, and fresh-cut grass. Taste of citrus fruits, light toffee, toasted dough, with pine, light tobacco, and a bitter, grapefruit finish.
