Fruity. Some apricot in the aroma. Might be from the apricot ale they brew. Good medium body and a bit sour/tart in the finish.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Not too bad of a brew, to be honest. It wasn’t knock you off your barstool good but it had all the basic implications of a pale ale that hit me the right ways. Word.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 14, 2006
This pale ale pours a copper color from a 12oz bottle. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel. citrus and floral. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are caramel and fruity. Hops are citrusy and floral. Nice balance. This is kind of your typical standard tasting American Pale Ale, not that there is anything wrong with that. Nice hop bite. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp, Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

blkitson (158) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Beautiful reddish brown hue but the after taste is a little strong. Retained the efferestence for a long time

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Chestnut brown. Creamy-rich texture. Nice toast in the malts. Sweet base, with caramel and cookie dough. Nippy hops, with pine and citrus. Pretty tasty beer, albeit a bit too bitter, relatively speaking.
