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.

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.

Pours a golden brown with a white head that fades quickly and leaves only a trace of lace. Nose and taste are of balanced malts, a touch of grain and subdued English hops. Worth trying if your in the Burgh. The brewery is definitely worth stopping into as it is a completely different experience.

Draft at brewpub. Pours a slight copper color with lacey head. Piney hop aroma dominates the nose. Taste is very caramelly with a tinge of hoppiness. Finishes with a slight linger on the tongue. Really good offering.

arminjewell (8470) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Pours clear yellow with white head, aroma has notes of some slight hay, grass, corn and some slight funky sour wheat. A bit weird, but the taste is what got to me a bit, a weird mix between sour grain and grass bitterness with a touch of bread in there. Interesting, not sure if this was intentional but it seemed a bit off...

Pours golden from tap with a thin white head. A bit of floralness on the nose. Nice grapefruit on the tongue with a hint of bitterness. Clean finisher. Not bad.

My favorite offering when I was visiting... smooth and rich malt profile, and nicely hopped. Nothing compared to American Pale Ales of the west coast, but still a delicious beer.

On tap at brewpub. Gold with medium white head. Not much aroma. Flavor is caramel and pine. Like most of their stuff, nice and sessionable.

Tap @ Brewpub. One of the better beers I sampled here. Really nice herbal hop, light toasty malt. Flavor is pine & herbal hops, light caramel, yeasty fruitiness. Yeasty fruitiness comes out more in the finish with solid, nearly overpowering bitterness.
