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.

12oz bottle, good style!! Copper color, slight caramel hop aroma, clean, crisp well balanced, light body, lively, definite taste of malt, not overdone. Good session brew, I think this beer has won some awards.

Light, clear yellow gold, thin lacing. Very light musky nose. Crisp, light; a light citrus note on the back palate. Very sessionable...this would be a really good summer beer.

Hmm and English Pale? well it works to me, the Kent Goldings sing in this beer, its a balanced beer which wouldnt offend any englishman, straight forward and well crafted.

Pours a cloudy amber color with minimal off white head. Aroma is malty for a pale. Taste proves to be more of the same. Rich malt backbone with a generous amount of hops but since the malt is so robust it merely is a slight interruption. I personally like this balance even though it might not meet the standard definition of a pale.

On cask at the brewpub. Now here’s a beer. From the cask it took several minutes to settle into a transparent orange with a very thick, creamy white head. The cask my beer was poured from had been dry hopped with Amarillo pellets. As a result a wonderful nose was detectable from 3 feet away. Floral, honey, citrus, white grape, malt, yeast, lemon candy. Flavor was a little weaker than I would have liked, sweet, light bitterness, bread, honey, lemon. Very creamy in the mouth, but not major lasting bitterness. A session beer done right.

Bitter and dry, which is what I like in an ale. It had such a dry finish, in fact, that I was surprised that it’s ABV isn’t particularly high.

Bottle. Huge foamy head, the type that flows up out of the glass but is so densely foamy it doesn’t spill over the sides at all, dark cloudy copper after a carbonated pour. The hop scent hits first then the caramel, molasses/malty aroma. The taste is bitter hay hop upfront quickly fading to a doughy malty fizzler. I have to say, the brewer’s description was pretty accurate. I’m used to inflated run downs, bit this one is on the money. A solid English pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by rsully

Had on tap at brewpub. Golden pour. Aroma of vanilla and bread. Flavor was malty at first followed by pine cones. Not that I have eaten pine cones before, but you get it. Bitter, sticky finish.

Pours golden with a nice piney hop aroma. Flavor followed the nose with a nice dose of bitter hop.Finished off with a hop bitterness bite.
