One of the lighter beers for Dogfish. The dark color betrays the conservative and straightforward taste.

had on tap at Rehoboth beach...a very well balanced, aromatic pale ale. easy drinking, but still somewhat complex for the style. not a west coast, but has a nice hop profile atop a malty sweet backbone. good stuff."

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer has a nice copper, amber color to it with a very nice off white head the laces very well to the glass. The smell is okay, it is very mild with a very earthy, mild citrus scent to it. I was expecting more from a pale ale. The taste comes out of no where with a great SMOOTHE blend of malt, mild hops, and yeast flavors. It was extremely smoothe that I had to ask the bartender if it was a nitro beer. The taste was completely unexpected and very good. The mouthfeel afterwards left you with a creamy, malty, mildly bitter taste. Overall, this beer was very interesting and did not follow the typical Pale Ale characterisitics, which was a nice change.

March 2010. From bottle. Orange amber color with malt, caramel and floral aromas. A bit thin and bland. I would expect more from DFH.

On tap at Rohobeth brew pub. Pours a clear golden copper color with thin creamy head. Aroma is a little fruity and malty, no hop presence. Taste is malty with slight hoppiness. A good simple beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at DFH alehouse. Copper/brown with light head. Nicely balanced hops and malt. An above-average middle of the road ale. Drinkable but forgettable.

On draft at the Gaithersburg brew house. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Mildly spicy nose. Very thin mouthfeel. Not one of DFHs most memorable brews.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a nice copper with a thick white head that leaves moderate lacing. The aroma is rather bland with nothing at all really standing out. The taste is clean but fairly watery. Very un-DFH like. Dull & uninteresting. Bleh.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
brewpub tap. hazy amber with a small-bubbled beige head that slowly wanes to a crescent moon. Nose confuses immediately with synthetic milky desert notes, a spiced coffee or cocoa. Dry cedar emerges with warmth. Flavor is off with light bile, toast at the front with marshmallow creamy sweetness through the sugary finish. Gritty texture. A shotgun profile that misses the target. DFH.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours pale amber with a fruity aroma. Overly juicy for a pale ale. Like a very fruity pilsner more than a pale ale. Not much bitterness here. Definitely made for people who don’t know what else to get/are afraid of the rest of the offerings.
