COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber English-style ale that has a nice balance between hops and malt. It's the most popular of our beers and the most versatile in terms of pairing with food or people.

Bottle. pours amber with a thin head. Nice woodsy malt nose but little to taste of it when you drink it. Citrus and pine linger in the finish. Not great, not bad.

MaltOne (236) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours pale amber. Brief head. Aroma typical to English Pale - more malty than hops. Flavor is surprisingly light. It?s not watery, it?s not weak, but it is ... light? Overall, this may be like that great bottle of wine you had on vacation, that just didn?t hold up when you got it home. Imagine the summer sun shining on the beach in Nantucket... and this beer. Could be a perfect summer thirst quencher. Could be misclassified. This is a nice session beer, as English Pale Ale, its a shadow.

Basic pale ale, not much aroma on the nose. To taste you pick up more malts than hops, usual in a English style pale ale. Subtle hints of citrus on the palate. It's ok, nothing special.

Draft, Cisco bar Logan APPEARANCE – Light Amber. NOSE - Not much too the nose. FLAVOR – Good pale ale. Not overly hoppy as some 'pale ales' are today, though it could do with a bit more hop flavor to it. NOTES - good drinker that's pleasant and not too much alcohol or hop.

Bottle. Opens with a nice balanced malty aroma with just enough aromatic hops. Pours with a thin head and large bubbles, off-white color. Beer is a rich brown, nice and clear. Begins to fall apart upon the first sip, taste is not as balanced as the aroma, aromatic hops disappear, and roasted maltiness fades into the background. All that’s left is a bitterness on the back end. The mouthfeel is thin and disappointing. Not horrible, but not recommended.

crossovert (8186) - Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
355ml bottle. Pure malt juice, stale and malty, dusty. I like English pale ales but this is like an east coast ipa with little hops.

BOSSbrewer (2070) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is fruity caramel and some dark fruits. Really nice. Flavor falls a little flat. Bitterness is a bit harsh also. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerdedone (2785) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Can. Pours copper brown with a foamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread and grass. Flavor of sweet malts, caramel, grains, citrus, pine and had a dry finish.

From a bottle. Pours copper. Tastes like light grains, light roasted malt. Light body and low carbonation. The aroma and look are great, but flavor and palate are 'ok'.
