April 5, 2012: Remember back to the first time you ventured across the Great South Bay via the Robert Moses Causeway on your way to the beach? Well, we’ve captured that feeling in our Robert Moses Pale Ale! This well-balanced, sessionable American-style pale ale will keep you refreshed all year round. Whether you’re fishing on your boat, sitting around a campfire, or relaxing in your back yard, the fresh aroma of American hops paired with the crisp taste of the pale malts will bring you back every time. We’ve taken the Robert Moses Pale Ale that you’ve come to enjoy and took it to the next level with the addition of blood oranges to give it a slightly more citrus character with just the right amount of bitterness you’d expect from an American-style pale ale.

Bottle. Thanks ModeEngage! Clear orange amber wit ha small off-white head. Aromas of blood orange, orange peel, light toasted malt and caramel. Flavor is orange, light toasted malt and pine. Light plus body, crisp with light carbonation.

Aroma of orange and a malty base. Not a bad aroma. Taste is malt base with a bitter dry almost medicinal aftertaste. Finish and aftertaste are not very good. Get some orange in the taste as well but just a moderate amount. Medicinal finish really detracts from this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beechner224 (814) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from cousin, drank from bottle. Aroma is serious orange, citrus. Taste is light, orange, serious orange. Nice beer, just all fruit, no pale ale resemblance.

SG111 (372) - New York, USA - SEP 20, 2014
On tap. Aroma of oranges, grapefruit, blood orange (surprise surprise). Flavor is mildly hoppy, orange, maltiness in the middle of the mouth. Slightly hoppy finish. Not bad.

BLADT (657) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle pour. Clear yellow-gold in glass. Nose is hard orange candies and not a lot else. Taste has some blood oranges and some sweet biscuit malts. Light body. Sweet throughout. Juicy. Not for me.

TheHopster (866) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On draft at Bill’s Bar and Burger, downtown, NYC. The blood orange flavor is unique and refreshing, without overpowering. Supporting an otherwise pedestrian pale ale.

mk70 (64) - New York, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Citrus hops nose. Clear copper/orange color. Minimal head lacing. First impression is a well balanced pale ale with cascade hops dominating. The finish leaves something to be desired leaving the taste of a very* bitter orange peel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (3967) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle thanks to Bill! Pours crystal clear golden amber with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Aroma is honey, grain, grass, a bit of orange. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, tons of orange and orange zest in the flavor. Light body, medium carbonation. A bit harsh with the zesty bitterness.

nimbleprop (5413) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2014
4oz pour at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with some very thin white head. Nose has a lot of orange peel, some mild key lime too, a hint of sweet malt. Flavor has a lot of orange soda without the carbonation, sweet, citrus, some tangerine too. Watery finish. A bit too sweet, could have used a little more bitterness to round it out.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle. I just tried this last night for the first time. Having tried Elysian’s Blood Orange, I have to say this one compares poorly against it. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and leaves very little lace. Not much aroma to speak of at all. The flavor is very mild blood orange along with some weak malt. Very mild hops bitterness at the finish. Light-medium bodied. Disappointing.
