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.

Dorwart (2451) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Thinm, bubbley head. reduces pretty quickly with very good carbonation. Light fruit and malt aroma. Maybe a little peaches and some corn. Color is a light amber. Soft and slightly bitter palate. Some fruit again with more malts. Bit biscuity with some hops. Finsih becomes slightly dry and bitter after a slightly sweet, doughy and pasty middle. A decect pale ale.

waeltzy (53) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Tap at the brewhouse. Interesting beer. Light golden clear amber appearance. Medium head with a bit of lacing. Floral and citrus fruity aroma. Sour candy, apples, oranges, and definitly some peaches in the mouth. A little bit hefe-weizish. Tasty malt and hop balance. Fairly light altogether. Ill have another.

Smooth pale ale. fruitier than Bass. Not as hoopy as I like. not bitter enough but maybe that is how English pale ales are. I had a fresh bottle from the brewery.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Sparkling clear, dark golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Ink-blot lacing. Overripe apple and banana in the nose. Lesser notes of lemon rind, bubble gum and very light cinnamon. Tasty, but a bit thin and a little on the bitter side... pleasantly so. Also, some malty caramel and hoppy grapefruit rind. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, lightly bitter, dry finish.

brewrater (92) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Solid beer with balance. Good initial malt followed by better hoppy finish. Matched well with the Pub’s food. But then again its all about the beer.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Pale golden amber clear with thin head. Light hops aroma, somewhat malty. Taste is fruity and hoppy, not overly bitter. Decent finish and after, though rather watery.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - Church Brew Works - Lawrenceville, PA] Poured a light and clear orange color with a thin white head and little carbonation throughout. Light aroma, mainly sweet malts with a tiny touch of hops underneath. Light and balanced malt and hop flavor with a stronger hop finish than a balanced finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5598) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery. I like Pale ales so this one intrigued me. It poured a light orange color with a small tan head. Rather pretty actually. The aroma was really faint but did have some hops to it. The flavor was sharp, hoppy and bitter. The hops linger on the aftertaste. Really not much balance for an English style pale. The hops while definitely there were not a great flavor. Pretty disappointing. However I have tried this one on cask condition as well and it is far far better that way.

aracauna (3283) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 Original: 6/6/04. A golden bronze with a good head. There’s very low hopping and a slightly watery finish. It improved as it warmed as a nice fruitiness came out. 5, 4, 6, 2, 11 Rerate: 2/26/13. Bottled version. Picked up at RBWG. Crystal clear amber. Nice glow. Nice orange fruity hops. Clean, solid pale malt. Definite improvement.
