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.

Pours a golden orange color with a off white head...bits of sediment throughout. Floral aroma...some light grass and light citrus and a bit of caramel malt. Flavor holds more of a grapefruit character with some melon rind...barley any malt character, but itís there. Pretty thin over the tounge...perhaps a bit watery a times with a dry, bitter finish. Not bad session beer, though a little unbalanced and a bit thin in body.

Deep Amber pour, Nice, frothy, creamy white head (reminds me of the look of guiness, only lighter in color.) Aroma spicy with fruity notes in the back. Flavor of Orange peels with caramel notes as well. Served at room temp, but as it got warmed more flavors of lavender and corriander were present. Full bodied. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

kramer (5826) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2006
12 oz bottle, via CMUBEERMAN. Pours a light copper, clear, with a small fizzy white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is some light floral hoppiness over a light caramel malt base, a little bit of husky graininess as well. Flavor is not especially pleasant, minimal hoppiness over a bland an husky grainy base. Weird metallic flavors on the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty run of the mill for a Pale Ale, light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall, not good, and not worth seeking out.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle from CMUBEERMAN. The beer pours to a glowing coppery orange colored body with a thin white head and so-so lacing. The aroma is apricot bubbleyum (if it exists). The flavor is your typical EPA. Grassy bitterness and bubbleyum gum. Hardly any malt profile. The palate is grassy, weak, medium-thin. Uninteresting. Not bad as far as EPAís go. Still, very plain and boring.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Perfumy floral aroma - orange bubbleyum with some spicy pale malt underneath. Very delicate and pleasant aroma. Thin, bitter and grassy mouthfeel/flavor. A dry bready pale malt base supports a crisp bitter grassy hop presence. A well-made English Pale but damnit itís just not interesting. If it had some malt to chew on it would be better and the hops are too grassy.

lamas (1551) - Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. Iíve come to the end of my variety case, so I guess itís time to rate these suckers. Pours a hazy, gold/amber color with a thin tan head and tons of big, nasty floaties. A watered-down malty aroma with a little caramel and just a hint of lemony hops. Thin to medium body. A slightly smooth caramel body with a somewhat bitter, crisp finish. Nice balance. Not bad, just boring.

eggman (45) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Purchased a 6-pack at the brewery while visiting a college buddy in Pittsburgh...Pours a hazy, shiny bronze with a very spare, spongy off-white head that completely vanished in seconds. No lacing at all...Smell light cereal malt and light citrus-lime hops. A clean, alcohol odor is also present...Medium bodied and an almost gritty like texture. Average carbonation with a chalky-bitter finish...Tastes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Warm metallic hops barely manage to cut through the overall blandness...Odd brew, slightly bitter but in a bad way. Thin and tinny for a Pale, maybe Iím just not used to English Pales though. Not much balance between the malt and hops, was MUCH better on tap at the brewery hence the purchase. Hopefully more flavor will emerge as it warms because it is hard to rate....well.....nothing. However, decent craft beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Bottle courtesy of CMUBEERMAN. Dark golden amber, with minimal white head. Standard slightly sweet malt aroma, some grassy hops in the background. Flavor very grainy, harsh malt up front, fades into a residuel sweetness. Just an average PA.

Dorwart (2535) - 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.
