pour is lager gold with white head. Nose is light, pale malt, caramel and stale grain dominates with light herbal hop behind. Taste follows with a bit more hop presence in the finish. Grain, caramel, herbal hop with some sweet citrus and hint of bitterness in the finish. Body is light, crisp, good carbonation. A touch syrupy mid palate.

Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white blanket for a head. Some residual lacing along the side of the glass. Mild aroma with subdued hop notes and some fruity notes as well. Flavor is decent, but definitely mildly hopped compared to most present day American Pale Ales. Interesting concept though to travel back in time with a recipe that has IMHO improved over the years.

Not the same as regular pale ale; same recipe they first used for their original brew when the company first started, tweaked since then. Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to thin lace and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of english pale malts, slight grassiness, and light hop. Taste is fresh english pale malt and not a whole lot else. Slightly bitter finish, but clean mouth otherwise. Decent, but nothing as good as their other efforts.

TURDFERGUSON (3928) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Tap at Speakeasy. Hazy light orange golden with a thin film of white lace. Nose shows some light citrus, banana bread, cereal malt, English fruit cake, light spice. Interesting. Flavor is sorta soapy and sweet, herbal and grassy hops, light bready sweetness.

Winter 2011 - My very first visit to the Greenflash Brewery helped me cross paths with the Green Flash Retro Extra Pale Ale. Heck, it even had a specially designed sign at the tasting room. How could I deny myself a sampler? Well, had I read some reviews I might have taken a pass. The aroma has a nice pils cleanliness and mild IPA hops, with touches of grapefruit. But the flavor has nothing much else to say. Hops, clean flavor, medium bodied, and refreshing, but just another vanilla pale ale in a sea of the same.

Draught via habitat. Golden pour, light hops and bread aroma but otherwise nothing too special to write home about etc.

Gold pour with a white head. Nose is skunked, malts, sadly not that good. Smooth palate, bitter, not that impressive.

Decent pale ale. Pours light gold. Thin head lasts awhile. Crisp, hops, refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11 aug 3012, tap at the brewery. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is straw malt and rather faint. Thin body and fizzy. Lemon and straw. Not that exciting. Almost tastes like a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Breukelen Bier Merchants day of tapping. A very light and refreshing pale with characteristic green flash quality and hops. Super bright clear with a respectable white head. Aroma of grass, cereal, lightly fruity and floral with a little spice. Flavor is clean cooling citrus and earthy hops giving way to light sweet bread with a light bitter finish. Perfect balanced ending clean and dry on the palate. (had this a few a week later in a growler left unopened over night and it wasn’t nearly so bright and fresh, shame on me).
