Bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice head. Smells of malt and floral, spicy hops. Tastes bready, pine, and a slight citrus, tangerine maybe. Pretty good stuff.

2/182009: CBC Pale Ale has a beautiful, sunny orange color with a lasting frothy beige head. The aroma and flavor are both fresh and showcase the citrusy, floral, and slightly resiny hops accompanied by just a tough of toffee maltiness. This beer is smooth and soft on the palate which helps make it quite sessionable. This accompanied my dinner of liver and onions quite nicely...

Draught at Cap City Diner in Gahanna,Ohio. Rating #92 for this beer.

golden brown with decent white head. Not much malt in this one, a little too bitter, but a decent hop flavor. An average at best ipa

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy poonpillager. Pours a clear copper with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, bready malt, floral hops, and a hint of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Good.

Clear amber red with a thin whitish head and super tiny lacing. Smell is light and a little hoppy and not horrible - I would just like it a bit more vibrant or loud. Flavor is okay - has a presence of hops but it is though they are standing over in the corner alone and almost like they arenít there. Palate is really really carbonated.

Bottle courtesy of prototypic. Thanks!
Mostly clear reddish amber pour with a short lived light beige head. Smell is somewhat chocolately and lightly hoppy. Interesting. Taste is kind of like cocoa-y fruity hops and balanced with a toffee, caramel and cocoa and lightly hoppy finish. Not what I expected at all. Not my favorite, but drinkable, and not bad though, either.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2008
Dark amber color, not a very pale ale. Generous off-white head fades to a small but dense covering that leaves some lace behind. Sweet, rich grainy malty smells, caramalts, toffee scents dominate, some light grassy and citrusy (orange) hops. Tastes much as the smell led me to imagine. Sweet caramalts dominating the impression, but it is "dry" somewhat on the finish as the grassy and citrus hops pop in. Pretty smooth, moderately carbonated medium bodied. Fairly drinkable, nothing special.

Very standard American pale. Piney aroma, malty body along with some hops, but not a lot of hops.
