On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, slight floral hops. Flavor of light pale malts, toasted malts, toffee, with bitter hops in the finish. A pretty basic pale ale and a nice drinking beer!

This was a pretty nice american pale ale and not a watery one like everyone else offers but a nice full flavored and body beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Pale copper pour with a medium head and decently lively carbonation. Crisp and dry hops in the aroma, very faint citrus note in there, but you quickly get a sense of the malts underpinning things. Nicely balanced even if nothing especially memorable in the flavor department. Spot on session brew.

Draft at Bull McCabes. Cloudy amber ruby with thin offwhite head. Straight forward pale malt with chalky bitter hop presence in the background. Crisp and easy drinking but unremarkable in most senses. Good for fans of the bitter session beers.
