An easy drinking beer with an excellent balance of hops and malt to please the palate. Brewed the way it was when Rochester was founded.

I tried this beer on opening night of the brewpub. I have to say I was quite excited as I love the hops. To me it seemed there was a good number of bittering hops, but not really enough flavor and aroma hops. Mild malt flavor. Less taste overall than I like in a pale ale.

2004 draught at brewery. Pours to a clear, golden/yellow color with a small white head. Aroma: hoppy and sweet, with some toffee, caramel, and butter. As others have noted, the flavor here is quite different from the average APA. There’s some hops, but the flavor really features the malt and caramel. I asked head brewer, Greg Smith, about the taste and he confirmed the caramel malt taste. This is much sweeter and less bitter than what you’d be used to in this style. Nice, thick, medium body with excellent carbonation.

2004 draught. Pours a warm golden colored yellow with small white head. Aroma is buttery and lightly sweet, with hints of sweet toffee and caramel. Flavor is quite the opposite of an APA, very malty, sweet and caramelly, with only some mildly bitter hops on the finish. Light butter-cream flavor, hints of light fruits. Good medium body, with little to no thinning.

Buffalo Brewfest 04. Very light colour IPA. Slight hoppiness in aroma. Taste is a little underwhelming for the style, but again, decent fruity hops with a light crisp taste. This seemed to get better as I had it, mainly because the effects of the previously sampled Magnum were wearing off. Not bad.

Tap. Decent but ordinary APA. Hop aroma is a little light. Bitterness is balanced by malt fairly well. Medium bodied.
