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.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Draft. Poured pale gold/copper with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma was biscuity, caramelly malt. First hit on the nose made me think West Coast, because I got some grapefruit and pine, but then it straightened out into floral, earthy hops. Maybe I was getting the draft off of other beers from my flight? Flavor was well balanced between caramel malt and earthy, slightly spicy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Great session beer.

Nephilium (1307) - Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Moderate hop presence, with some caramel coming through in the aroma. Pours a clear light amber with a full white head. A hop bomb this isn’t, it falls over on the sweeter side to start with, and just a minimal bitterness in the finish. If you like sweeter English Pale’s, you may appreciate this more then I do.

MarkSachon (551) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Sampler from the mixed flight of currently running brews. Overall this appeared and tasted to be weak. Definitely compromised on ingredients and body and taste. Why do so many brewpubs continue to cheat their customers with this hogwash?

BMMillsy (1253) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draft at the brewery on a Pittsburgh visit. Pours clear golden colored with a very small soft white head. Aroma is light fruits, some light grassiness, and not much else. Flavor follows with lightly sweet citrus, sweet light malts, hay, nearly no hop presence whatsoever. Light bodied with medium low carbonation. Meh.

bytemesis (2916) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small fast dissipating white head and some lacing. Aroma is urine, grass, corn, caramel, lemons, dirty leaves. Flavor is fairly tart, astringent, sharp, medium sweet, some grass, urine. This bad boy appears infected to me. At least I hope it is.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Hazy amber colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing left behind. Initial aroma was a bit catty. It mellowed and now it is citrusy with some earthy hop notes. Taste is malty and a bit like tea. Too much tannins. No diacetyl this time though.
