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.

DocJitsu (990) - 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.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel malts. The taste is citrus hops and toasted malts. Thin-medium bodied, decent balance. Fairly straightforward.

Thanks to Lithy for this one. Clear gold with a tall, long lasting off-white head. Fruity aroma with some earthy hops at the back. Nicley balanced flavor with a dry finish. Good Pale Ale.

Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of pale and caramel malts and a bit of earthiness, taste follows, thin but flavorful. Good stuff, sessionable.

On tap at the brewery. Light coloration , little to no lacing. Light body, was expecting more substance. Crisp finish however. Not bad by any means, but not memorable either.
