2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
