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.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle from the Brew Works. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

daknole (8539) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle from the Otown throwdown. Gold pour. White head. Aroma of hops, stone fruit, citrus and malt. Flavor is a bit grainy with some hops and citrus. Ok, just average.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Sparkling clear, dark golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Ink-blot lacing. Overripe apple and banana in the nose. Lesser notes of lemon rind, bubble gum and very light cinnamon. Tasty, but a bit thin and a little on the bitter side... pleasantly so. Also, some malty caramel and hoppy grapefruit rind. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, lightly bitter, dry finish.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with CMUBEERMAN (thanks!). Opened to a loud PSST and proceeded to pour almost all head. Settled into a medium and see through orange color. Softer aromas of caramel, citrus, and floral. Tastes start of with caramel giving way to citrus. Slightly lively body (I would have expected it to be over carbonated with the way it opened and poured, but it wasn’t).

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
Tap at brewery. Pale amber pour. The nose is pretty interesting. Soft and sweet with a light cascade hoppiness and some moderate caramel as well. Sort of fruity with a honeyish sort of sweetness. Light orange peel flavour. A bit too sweet for me.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2007
Shinitribe’s bottle. More of a malty, with fruit beer. Middle mouthfeel, orange head. High carbonation. Goldings hops, but understated pale in what is the standard-bearer today. Not a bad one.

Drake (7941) - 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.
