COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Bright reddish-amber; big cascade nose; light pale maltiness, well-balanced citrus - wood, pale and amber malts. Very nicely balanced. Dry, pithy, citrusy finish.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Bottled. A lovely pour, full of of foam and fury, nice big stable head, very fruity/flowery on the nose, full and strong (orangey), great balance. Top-notch, worth the long wait.

boto (1843) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 1, 2003
A fairly good amount of hop bite here. Not over the top, though. A very good effort.

Really fresh tasting pale. Superb session ale that has a nice citrusy hops burst and nice underlying malt presence. This would make a great six pack to take to the next neighborhood barbeque.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Cloudy orange color. Sweet, citrusy hop profile. Good bitterness. A great example of the style. Not incredibly piney, but well done estery notes especially at the finish.

What can I say about the city of my birth other than that how great it is that a brewery there named a beer after how the ultra-polluted river caught on fire. Good carbonation. Sediment apparent. Mostly diminishing head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy taste. A real good bitter beer.

Excellent Pale Ale. Huge citris hop head, hop dominated flavor and a long finish.

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2002
The aroma consists of grapefruit and sweet clover honey with smaller notes of caramel and perfume. The flavor is sweet and malty up front with bursts of caramel and red wine... also, a fruit I canít identify. Itís in there, but after ten minutes, I gave up trying to figure out which fruit it is. Maybe something Iíve never tried, such as a Paw Paw. Lightly bitter and acetic on the backside with a whisper of red (not purple) grapes. Sparkling clear copper hue. Small, frothy, khaki-colored head. Mostly, but not fully diminishing... much like my several thousand shares of WorldCom stock. Medium-bodied with light carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Lengthy, tangy, mostly dry finish with a slight straw-like flavor at the far end. This beer was very difficult for me to describe, aroma and flavor-wise. Interestingly and creatively hopped.
