COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially kilned Crystal malt and a generous portion of American cascade hops are used for a refreshing, spicy aroma, and a long, dry finish. Great with food, it’s big, bold, and bittersweet. Named best beer in Ohio and winner of a Bronze Medal in the World Beer Championships. Four Stars-Great Lakes Beer Guide.

Pours a half-inch white head that quickly disappears, reddish orange beer. Almost no lacing. Flowery/citrusy and spicy aroma. Light and crisp with a bitter, hoppy--though not overwhelming--finish. Not much malt at all, though. I got this in Columbus near my girlfriend's house 800 miles from here; a good American ale, but I probably won't be buying it again. If this is your style, though, you definitely should give this a shot.

Nice light brown ale leads the CBC chorale. Thin wispy head with decent lacing. Nice cascade hop aroma. Good body and moderate carbonation. Leaves a spicy finish. This goes great with their pork sandwich.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Little surprised this wasn't rated higher. Dark orange or bronze colored, transluscent. Aroma is mix of malt and pine. I think this beer is very balanced Pale. Dry finish. I liked this one.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Nice copper hue with a white foamy head and good lace. Faint aroma of crisp fruity hops and roasted malt. The taste is piney and bitter but some malt presence did creep through however. Pretty smooth and balanced. Thin and weak metallic finish. Very average APA, quaffable but not something I would seek out, thanks to JSquire for the bottle.

Pours thin with very little head, cloudy orange in color. Taste is unremarkable with clean finish; great with food I'll buy, but big and bold--Hardly.

haddon90 (1606) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Copper color with a slight head. Not too bad. Some hops but not a lot. I was hoping more. A pretty smooth pale ale. Like Rockinout said, nothing too extreme.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Copper-orange-red color, medium bodied. I didn't get a whole lot of hops out of this one, mostly a smooth pale ale with nothing too extreme. Finishes slightly hoppy.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Good amber color, with a tiny bit of head. Sweet aroma thats very pleasing. Overall this one doesnt disappoint. Rather hoppy, but a nice finish. Not much of a malt complex to this, mostly hoppy, which is why I can see someone swaying towards calling this an IPA.

Frank (3956) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Bright orange. Thin head. Spots of lace. Nice, mild hoppy aroma. A bit on the thin side. Good balance of malt and hops. Some earthy notes. Pretty tasty.
