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.

Cask, Church Brew Works

Deep Amber pour, Nice, frothy, creamy white head (reminds me of the look of guiness, only lighter in color.) Aroma spicy with fruity notes in the back. Flavor of Orange peels with caramel notes as well. Served at room temp, but as it got warmed more flavors of lavender and corriander were present. Full bodied. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

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.

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.

A A nice smooth pale, amber colour, lightly hopped. much better when cask-conditioned as the hop flavors and aromas emerge more strongly.

Sample at CBW. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head. Malty aroma with some spicy hop and quite a bit of pineapple character. Read a lot of ratings about beers that have pineapple notes in aroma and flavor, but this is the first time I’ve experienced it. Flavor is dank malt along with pineapple and a grassy bitter finish. I liked this beer, but have to wonder if it tastes like this all the time or if it was just a fluke.

On tap at Church on our way to RBSG. Pours a gently hazy (but just barely) orange brown with a thin white head. Nice big citrus and a little bit of toast malt. Medium bodied, creamy. Nice earthy malt, a bit metallic, grainy and earthy. Long bitter grapefruit finish.
