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.

I had a four pack of this one hot summerís afternoon in new haven, while doing research with monkeys. It tasted like soap and smelled like piss.

decent for pale ale, but didnít have a whole lot of taste. Whatever you are eating at the time will definitely overpower this beer. Light orangey yellow color, not much head. Aftertaste is pleasant, very very mildly hoppy. You really have to concentrate to taste this beer.

Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin, wispy off-white head. Dry toasty pale malty aroma has some earthy hop presence. Full, malty and bittersweet body has some mild light fruitiness toward a dry, mildly hoppy finish. A decent pale ale, but somewhat bland.

[bottle] Pours a murky reddish amber color. Aroma is somewhat fruity.. taste is fruity, with decent malt presence. Not too much in terms of hops. Not bad at all.

Poured a clear dark copper color with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with a lot of caramel, earthy, and possibly a little butterscotch. Malty flavor. Barely any hops. Dull carbonation. Touch of bitterness. Seems like a straight foward ESB to me.

12 oz bottle-pours a 2 finger high, rich, rocky, tan head that laces. Cloudy burnt orange color with effervescence. Aroma is malt, creamy, musty, background hops. Taste is a burst of hops with some bite, then balanced by a creamy, sweet malt and fruity. Nice. (much different tasting when I had it later with food)

Oyster Bar Restaurant, Grand Central Station, NYC - 12 oz bottle. Pours slightly murky, dark orange with a light, but long lasting white head. Pleasant, nutty aroma, not real strong though. Good pleasant bitter flavor with hints of spice and some subtle fruity notes like nectarines. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick. Very good.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Eyedrinkale, thanks Mike!) Iíve unintentionally let this one age a bit, and coupling that with the misfortunate Iíve had with Cisco beers in general, Iím opening this expecting the worst. But wow, this is a really solid pale ale. Maybe the aging has played a part in this, but this beer is really malty, nutty, toasty, lightly roasty, somewhat sweet and caramely, and even a little earthy. Bitterness is mild, picking up just a bit in the finish, but this is very much a malt dominated beer. The nose is also very malty, with toast and earth being the most prominent. Body is medium with an average mouthfeel and carbonation level. Solid amber color and fairly clear in appearance, the beer has a light-tan head that builds to a half an inch on the pour before settling to a ring. A smattering of carbonation bubbles rise randomly through the beer. Lacing is not happening. I should probably try this fresh at some point just to see how different it might be, but Iíll tell you, this is a damn good beer when aged.

Had more than one of these on a boat cruise around Manhattan, of all places. Poured a nice, dark amber from the bottle. Didnít detect much hop in the aroma. Taste was a pleasant surprise. Had a complex malt nuttiness to it, with the hops in the background. Taste and feel improved as you drank. Lacing followed the beer down the glass. Great finish. Unique for an American pale ale. Definitely one I will look for again.

Had this on tap while in Nantucket and bought a bottle to bring home. Great smell, huge head, nice color, very flavorful but thin and a bit watery. Very easy to drink and enjoyable.
