COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the British introduced draught pale ale to America, the Pipe Organ Pale Ale is what they had intended. It is truly British in character. Brewed with pale ale malt and a touch of caramel malt, it has a light copper color and subtle body. The maltiness is carefully balanced with only the best English hops - East Kent Goldings. Although this beer has a fair amount of hops, the caramel maltiness perfectly balances its profile.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small fast dissipating white head and some lacing. Aroma is urine, grass, corn, caramel, lemons, dirty leaves. Flavor is fairly tart, astringent, sharp, medium sweet, some grass, urine. This bad boy appears infected to me. At least I hope it is.

Hazy amber colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing left behind. Initial aroma was a bit catty. It mellowed and now it is citrusy with some earthy hop notes. Taste is malty and a bit like tea. Too much tannins. No diacetyl this time though.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours a clear deep golden color with a white head with a faint greenish hue. Lively carbonation bubbles migrate from the bottom. Quite a bit of sweet, biscuity malt in the aroma, with just some mild notes of sweet citrus esters. Mouthfeel is wet and very soft. There is a mild carbonation burn for a bit of balance. Pretty well-balanced malt and hop character, despite the malty nose. Biscuit and mild, sweet citrus flavors. The beer finishes very cleanly. Inoffensive to people interested in a sessionable Pale Ale that aren’t particularly attracted to a lot of hops.
