On tap at the Petrol Station. The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt and not too much else. The flavor is more exciting. I get some biscuit malt up front, but there is also a little bit of hop character. I get some orange citrus hops, as well as some grass and a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small off white head. The aroma is honey and floral hop. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet honey hop and bitter finish. A decent American pale ale from Green Flash.

This tasted just like a standard pale ale to me without much to it. Slight hoppy aroma and a few hops I could get in the taste, but fairly unremarkable overall.

Braudog (5623) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft to growler, from the Birch. Golden and shiny with a nice boiling head of white foam. Creamy appeal, with an everyman’s appeal -- lightly caressed with a bit of flowery finish, but an easy drinker for anybody. (#4696, 7/16/2012)

Served on draft at Beer Run. I’m not sure what makes this retro, or a different beer from the Extra Pale at all, so I fully expect this rating to be merged at some point. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized head. Poor head retention. Aroma of herbal, peppery and earthy malts. The taste is sweet malts, earth, peppery and herbal hops. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness. Nice.

Pint on tap at Neon’s Unplugged. On the chalkboard it was labeled simply "Green Flash Pale Ale", but a Green Flash rep in the bar was referring to it as "Retro". Clear amber color, nice thin white head, leaving good lace. Very nice grapefruit, pine, dry hop aromas. Enough hops for an IPA, but without the bitter or heaviness. Very nice crisp carbonation, excellent dry texture with a good dry hop aftertaste. Lighter bitter taste - the hop overpowers it. Very nice pale ale, one to rival Stone’s, I think. Shared some with Hota: she said it was smooth and light, soft palate, but a brassy aftertaste.
