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.

Pears everywhere and fruit where there was not pear! Beer is best when cold unless it tastes better warm! This was cold. Yay Beer.

Pours a thin amber body with a small head. Hops are hard to identify exactly, but Iíd agree with the doughy smell. Finishes bitter and feeling more fruity. Iím not sure this one deserves to be poured out of a 750ml bottle. Whatís up with the carbonation? This one barely pours a head with a belligerent pour. Whatever, itís better than a junk lager, not much else.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Pour is ruby amber with a big off white head...smell is a pronounced hoppy and sour affair with some hints of cookie dough and maybe green raisins...taste is very well balanced and easy to drink...enjoyable...

Bottle. Clear, light amber color with a huge white head. Sour aroma of granny smith apples and some citrus. Tart flavor of hops, citrus and a bit of malt.

Bought this 22oz bottle in Marlton, NJ. Pours a hazy copper color with a large frothy head. Sour apples is the first thing that springs from the aroma. Some malt, and other sour notes as well. Kind of light taste. Some lemon and sour notes. Not too bad on the palate. Overall not bad, but I expected more!

Hazy burnt orange pour supporting a creamy toasted white head never left the glass. First impression on the nose was sour apples and yeast followed by sweet malt and some hops. The sour notes in the aroma were more apparent in the flavor with a distinct sour bite at the tip of the toungue right away. Malty sweetness came through at the center along with apple, pear and caramel. The hops finally showed up to the party but not until the sour/sweet guests were already in command. Finish was slightly sweet, bitter and still a bit sour. I was beginning to think I might have had a bad bottle or one that was poorly maintained but after seeing that Iím not alone in finding this PA a bit sour, I think itís more likely that this is just not a very good beer - a disappointment from a good brewer.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Poured an effervescent amber with a fizzy off-white head. Plain yet refreshing hops aroma. Taste is rather thin, with some light malt, prominent lemony hops with a small hint of smoke. Very dry, bitter and somewhat distasteful finish. Thin bodied.

Coming from Cisco Brewing i was kinda disapointed. This was your everyday pale ale. Had an abundance of hops but it just didnt do it for me. Also, $9.99 for a 4pk. Not so good.

I have a different label. Bottle, poured an orange hazy with off white smallish head. Nose is chemical like. Sour taste. Average.
