3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is a slightly orangeish golden with a prominent white head that dissipates quickly, and the aroma is hoppy but not terribly so. This beer is mildly bitter and lightly sweet, but the palate is a medium-thick body, soft carbonation, abrupt finish, and slick texture.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin white head and moderate lacing, lots of carbonation. Aroma is of pale and bready malts, with a hint of hops underneath. Flavor cuts the hops and its mostly just malty. To me this is much more of an english style pale ale than an american, but they already have an english that is even worse.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured medium-golden with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up pale and vegetal malts with light grassy and orangey accents.. not so enjoyable. The flavor followed the same course.. bitter orange peel around and throughout, with honey-kissed cheap malts and light vegetal character beneath.. tangy orange on the finish. Lighter-bodied with smooth carbonation on the palate.. good feel on the middle, but too sharp through the finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. The look is golden to copper in color, thinning white head, and clear. The smell is floral, grass, not great hop aroma, sorta mushy. The taste is hops, real light bitterness, grass, light malt, and blah.

Clear orangish yellow appearance. Decent head. Grapefruit in the aroma, but there isn’t much. Some bready malts but mostly just tasting stale...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sept 2006: reviewed on BA. Part of a JW Dundee’s Craft Beers of America pack bought in the UK.
Drank this first at just below room temp, it was OK. Thought you American types might drink in cooled, so put the next one in the fridge, big mistake, don’t drink it cold, there is no taste at all if you do that!
It looked fine and smelt of hops and honey, I have had a lot of UK Pale Ales, this New York version is in the middle of my rankings.
Would I buy another? Yes, but I would drink it uncooled, like we do in the UK.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold-light copper pour,thin head to no head with a froth ring and spotty lacing.
Aroma is somewhat more malty/sweet with fruity english esters and/or very light fruit/floral hop with evergreen or spruce like notes.Pretty much no hop aroma.
Taste is smooth somewhat almost slick then some carmel and mild citrus, with a moderate tart citrus type bittering.Kinda light grainyness , very light toast,some floral hop,pretty refined and subtle. Pretty crisp somewhat malty and quaffable.Pretty solid standard pale ale.Some would say boring but its a solid brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally reviewed: 1/28/10. Bottle from a mixed Dundee 12-pack. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark orange with a huge rocky off-white head on top. Great retention; left lots of sticky lace and sip rings on glass. Scents of earthy malts and bread. Pretty basic here.
The mouth was thin and wet. I didn’t care for that at all. Flavors of biscuits, some mild hops, and semi-sweet malts. Finish was earthy. This was a pretty basic PA. I wouldn’t reach for this often, but it would do in a pinch.
