COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
E.J.Phair Pale Ale has a well-balanced flavor profile that is loaded with delicate hops and malt character. This is the first beer that we brewed when we got started.

Ibrew2or3 (6926) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours clear gold with thin copper core and micro thin off white head. The mild aroma is crisp citrus hops mixing with a slightly roasted and sweet malt component. The taste has a very brief pulse of sweet malts before citrus hops plunge in. The hops begin with tasty late addition hop flavor and finish increasingly bitter. It ends dry with lingering citrus hop bitterness into the after taste. Solid tasting Pale Ale where the hops remain restrained and not really moving out of style IMO.

Bov (9552) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2008
courtesy of Per - hazy golden-amber colour with a robust and creamy pale beige head, nice lace; charming fruity hoppiness with notes of apricot and grapefruit, very soft and creamy mouthfeel, quite low carbonation, sweet with a moderate bitterness; long fruity finish (peach comes to mind) - velvety and balanced

omhper (19436) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2007 Bottled. Clear amber,firm head. Rich citric aroma of tropical fruits (pineapple and lychee?). Sweet and caramelly with tounded mouthfeel. A quite bold and full sized pale ale. Long resiny bitter finish. More powerful than thirst quenching.

ABUSEDGOAT (2402) - California, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Clear amber orange, HUGE HUGE head, didn’t see this one coming. Gentile pour had some overflow. Aroma is fairly unique for the style, sorta like a blond ale. Herbal, grassy hops with a lighter fruit bouquet. Ligher malts than typical, got some bread and caramel. Medium to light body, moderate to low bitterness, somewhat watery. Interesting take, but just didn’t click with me.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Draught at Falling Rock. The beer is clear, light/medium caramel with a small. frothy, white, mostly lasting, quickly diminishing head. Clingy lacing.<P>Delicate and floral for a PA. The aroma is malty with a light note of biscuit; Hoppy with a light note of lemon and orange zest, light honeysuckle floral; Trace of yeasty basement.<P>The flavor is light/moderately sweet, trace acidic with a long, lightly bitter, lightly sweet finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Ernest (6231) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Draught, Falling Rock. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, grapefruit), with a note of ginger. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A fairly solid little brew, actually. Nice hop character and some unusual gingery spice notes as well. Nice balance that isn’t the usual crude high-alpha attack on one’s mouth. Enjoyable.

hopdog (8952) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf (thanks!). Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, oranges, citrus and lemon peels. Tastes of caramel, juicy oranges, and citrus. On the sweeter side. This was actually not that bad of an APA and wouldn’t make that bad of a session beer.
