Our Pale Ale has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. Large quantities of premium Cascade hops give the Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor.

Exceptionally full bodied and complex? Uhh...no. A balanced pale ale that just simply fails to impress. Lightly floral and spicy hops and a little too much malt.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is citrus hops and light pale malt. Flavor is medium citrus hops and bitterness, light malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, lemon, some pine into a bit of biscuit, bread into a bit of spice, touch of yeast. Taste was a mix of grass, orange, slight grapefruit into some lemon, touch of biscuit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry.

Ferris (8487) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle - Orange, citrus, grass and some caramel. Clear copper with a thin head. Exactly as it smells with a bit of grain and spice. A very different pale ale with the grains and spice.

It's not a bad beer by any means. But there's nothing distinctive here either. Solid. Drinkable. Unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (3821) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle from AJ’s fine foods Scottsdale. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing. Not much on the nose. A very slight biscuit note on the tongue. Finishes clean for a beer that never really started.

Clear copper with a big, but quickly drop-to-the-rim head, ribbons of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with butter rum that grows substantially through the palate. Only a hint of bittering at the finish leaving the sweet to slowly fade. Reasonable, but a little thick and heavy for frequent imbibing.
