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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours amber\copper with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet malts, and hops. Flavor is sweet upfront, citrusy, and a solid bitter hoppy finish (but balanced well). Good body, good brew.

Not a great pale ale fan here, but this one was decent (to me, they’re a dime a dozen and everyone and their brother makes ’em). Poured a dark orange-copper color with a substantial head that died out half way through drinking. Lacing lasted throughout. Definitely a sweet base taste with citrus (orange?) and caramel malts coming through. The hops weren’t ridiculous and were balanced fairly well. Not a bad pale ale.

Clear, red/amber body with a cream colored head. Aroma: sweet malt, floral hops. Flavor starts with solid hop bitterness and a decent malt backbone(caramel). Mild dry finish - lightly bitter and a touch metallic.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle. I used to have it on tap in DC a lot but never took notes until now. So here it goes:Aggressively hopped beer that pours amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is floral and fruity dominated by hops. Flavor is hoppy with a malts thrown in for balance. However this is more of an IPA than a Pale Ale. fairly bitter finish that is lasting. Alcohol flavors are fairly pronounced making this less balanced overall than it could be.

WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - APR 8, 2006
Bottle. Beer of the month. Pours a deep copper, almost amber, but not quite. Very clear, ~<1" head that went away quickly leaving a layer of foam. Sweet malt and florally almost fruity hop aroma. Taste is OK. Starts off good with a malty sweetness / hints of caramel up front, but becomes rather bitter with an odd, almost cardboardy or stale finish, hard for me to describe. Medium mouthfeel with a sort of high level of carbonation. OK, would not buy if I saw it at the store. Many better Pale ales out there.
