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 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.

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.

Nice, tasty pale ale. Typical flavors and aromas of caramel and pine, nicely balanced an easy to drink. Not fancy, but tasty. Thanks to lithy for this one!

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 it’s 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.
