Really well crafted beer, but with very malty overtones true to the English model. I enjoyed it, but the malt flavor didn't hit my sweet spot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this just once. Smelled of frsh hops and a slight bit of lemon. Tastes pretty ordinary, but still a solid beer.

Pours a hazy gold. Not a lot on the nose that I could smell. Tastes good...a fair amount of yeast flavor. It doesn’t taste like any pale that I’ve had before. This is a fine beer...not very exciting though.

pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head that quickly diminishes...smells of malt and citrus. light body with less bitterness than expected and pretty weak flavors of malty sweetness, even a bit metallic taste. dry finish...overall not a great beer.

12 oz. bottle. I was surpised to see this listed as an English pale ale. I thought it was an APA for sure. Pours super clear copper with 1 cm. white head. Falls to a cover of substantial foam that slowly disappears as you enjoy the beer. little lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with a little bit of citrusy hops. Carmelly malts. Flavor is very nicely balanced. Initial impression says this is one of the best Pale Ales I’ve had. Slightly bitter up front. Solid amt. of good malts in the middle. Not really carmelly, but sort of - crystal malts maybe? Not real sweet. Then some piney like hop flavors and a nice, sharp, but not too dry finish. Palate is perfect for a pale ale. Medium, but a good amt. of carbonation and bitterness to lighten it up a bit. Overall a top notch pale ale. Super well balanced, solid malts, not overly hoppy or bitter, but enough so to make is a pale ale. Easily drinkable. I’ve had many before and I will have many more.

This is a malt forward, more English style pale with an assertive hop presence. A very pine like resin flavor seems to dominate through the aroma, but biscuit, caramel and slight toffee flavors fight through upon tasting. Sight fruity, plum like esters finish complement throughout. Clean, creamy finish with light citrus hops.

Pours a golden amber with a bit of white head. Aroma is bread malts, some yeast, a hint of caramel sweetness, and herbal hops. Lots of yeast in the taste, which is actually a welcome deviation from what I’ve encountered recently; malts and hops are well balanced. Not much sweetness -- malts are quite bready/yeasty (and, sadly, more like an amateur baker than a real pro), but the herbal (and a little bit grapefruity) hops provide a nice balance. Finish lingers in a subtle way -- not a bad "sitting around" beer.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Dark brassy color with a standard pale ale fragrance. Hoppy yet sweet at the same time. Clean finish with little aftertaste. Not bad at all.

A good balance of malt and hops. Crisp, malty and a bit biter. Nothing unusual, just a good example of a traditional pale ale.
