COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic American Pale Ale is is floral to the nose and flavorful to the mouth. 2 - row, 5 specialty malts, and just the slap right amount of Cascade hops makes our pale ale just a shade short of perfect. Grab some and tell us what you think. Surely to be one of your new favorites.

On tap in Birmingham. Not a bad beer, but slightly water with a hint of hops and malt. My dad said he liked this beer - which is not a good sign!

benself (11) - gardendale, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Nice golden hue, very pretty lacing down the side of the glass. Head sticks around for a while. Very balanced malt and hop characteristics, very cascade. Not a dry pale ale, but not at all sweet; just enough to quench your thirst.

unclemattie (4303) - Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Hazy pale golden color. Thick rocky white head. Nice lace. Smells perfect. Nice deep pale malts. Flavor has lots of citrus hops. Gigantic malt body. Perfectly balanced. Smooth and creamy. Delicious.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2009
These was a fair brew - medium bodied and soft, but crisp and hoppy. Not great for a pale ale, but decent for a Good People beer. Still seems unbalanced though.

Nice beer served on tap at J. Clyde. Pours a dark yellow with a touch of amber. Nice head with plenty of lacing. Smell is hop dominant....citrus and floral. Taste is hoppy of center with citrus esters. Not overly dry but nothing sweet about the finish. Mouthfeel is appropriate for style. Very drinkable APA. Hoppier than some but and easily sessionable beer. Nice APA.

Dogface (12) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 24, 2009
A dark orange with a pretty thin head that disappears quickly. Aroma is light and somewhat sweet...not to hoppy, and even a dash of sourness mixed in...OK for an APA. Flavor is some burnt malts, and a whole lot of bitterness, without much of a hop profile coming through otherwise...maybe a hint of the Cascade hops.....concur with others that this is a bit confusing for the style.

Butters (3897) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Draft at 5 points. Pours a clear yellow with a decent light hop nose. Sweet corn and floral hop flavor. Not really my cup of tea, but not awful.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2009
On tap. Found some old notes. Poured a clear copper color with a one finger off white head. The aroma was faint floral, along with some malty notes. The flavor was sweet malt with an earthy bitter finish. I enjoy trying beer from some of these small craft breweries. This one was decent.

On tap. Amber pour with a thick, fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Hoppy nose and a tangy, soapy hop flavor. A touch of yeast over a soft malt backbone. Medium bodied. Nice.
