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.

DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Bit disappointed to find this isn’t the brewpub version retired in 2007- that would have been an exotic find on the shelves of Pioneer supermarket. Deep coppery brown- not pale- with patchy slick of foam. Aroma of rust, Weetabix, minerals, Allsorts and Hovis biscuits. Said flavour with hints of wet dough, Dolly Mixtures, Allsorts and vaguely spicy (aniseed) notes. Slightly saline finish with retronasal seawater, malt loaf and rust. A respectful imitation of a dull brown English bitter.

pinkzambia (1540) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Clear copper color with a white ring head. Aroma of perfumy hops. Tinny balanced hop malt backbone with a sharp but malty finish. Tangy bitterness in the aftertaste. It’s ok, but doesn’t compare to something like Sierra Nevada APA.

12 ounce. can. Slightly hazy amber color. Decent sized rocky white head. Fragrant faint caramel malt aroma. Mild toasted malt flavor has hints of bread and black tea. Nicely balance subtle citrus hops. Slight nutty malt in finish. Pleasant but average.

CharmCityCrab (160) - Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Sweet, swampy taste like autumn leaves with old fashioned candy with toast and acorns. Not great, but points for being different than I expected. Like the whale?s tale logo. Kind of curious about the calligraphy on the upper label, whether its just artistic or Hebrew letters or something. Not a bad beer, but they could probably do more with this brand. A little closer to an amber ale or a red ale than a pale ale.

Brown and bubbly. Malty and a bit bitter. Clean and dry finish. Nice brew to try out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Aroma sweet, bready, like caramel and sugarcane. After an initial bite of carbonation, sweet malt flavors kick in with a pleasantly bitter mild hop finish. Relatively low alcohol content makes this a good post-dinner sessioner.

12 oz bottle. Pretty good pale. Has a crisp finish but no much for hops. I would have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorite pale ales that I always have a few in my fridge. Visited the brewery in Nantucket and had a blast.
