COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, red ale is made in the American Pale Ale style. It has a strong hop character, medium body, dry finish, and floral hop aroma. We use pale Two-Row Brewer’s malt, Caramel 80 and 40 Lovibond malt, and Munich malt. For bittering and aroma Willamette, Cascade, and Tettnang hops are used in the kettle and as dry hopping in the fermenter.

Bottle, #466. Light copper pour with small head. Floral hop aroma with a bit of malt behind it. Well balanced flavor of malt and hops. Pretty good brew, better than the other Dominions I’ve had.

Poured a reddish amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, caramel malts, toast, toffee, and a bit of nuts. Taste of grapefruit, citrus fruits, woody hops, pine, and light tobacco.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Amber, small head. Hoppy nose, malts, astringently dry bitter hoppy finish; nice contrast with several far less interesting beers around it at the DBF.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Draught at Old Dominion Brewhouse, Washington DC
Deep blond color. Light but nice hop aroma. It has some malt flavor, getting better in the final, with a discreet hopping; quite strong bitterness, with fairly good hops. Pleasant.

Pours a light amber color with a small white head. Crisp hop aroma, cut grass and a touch of pine. Refreshing body, slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2008
12 oz. bottle from a sampler, bottle 073108. Clear brown pour with not much head. Cascade hop aroma is strong with some vegetal notes. Very leafy hop taste with a grainy malt background. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

bigbish (539) - California, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Copperish color, thin head, disipates quickly. A nice hop bite, not too bitter for a pale. Deep malty flavor. Lots of carmel. I like this beer.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
On tap in Reagan Airport. Amber coloured beer. Aroma is lightly malty. A bit of herbal/toasty sweetness. Fairly generic though with not a whole lot of character. Low bitterness, kind of herbal. Meh.
