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.

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.

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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper amber with a very big airy off-white head that leaves sticky clumps of lace behind as it subsides. Aroma has a nice fresh piney hop character with some mild citrus and metallic notes. Body starts with a semi-sweet toasty caramel maltiness turning more bitter and resiny, with some iron metallic flavor before a drier, lightly bready finish. Would probably be better if they’d check the mineral content of their water. Thanks to OhioDad for the bottle!

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 Bottle... Lightly hazed amber ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, off-white head. Doughy, citrusy aroma with notes of whole grain bread, lime and grapefruit. Well-rounded flavor. Malty, but lightly bitter with honey and grapefruit rind. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes malty, but not sweet. Thanks go out to OhioDad for the bottle!
