On tap at the Appalachian Vintner. Light gold color, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is resinous and citrusy hops up front, with some hay, and bread dough. Nicely balanced flavor. Medium body, crisp, and clean. Overall, this is a very nice, hoppy pale ale.

From Tap. Pours a nice cloudy amber color. Head dropped quite. Aroma was fruity hops with a bready malt undertone. Taste followed with a thin mouth feel and watered down taste. Crisp on the end. Good for summer time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Federal, Durham. For all I know it could’ve been one of the other varieties listed in the database, but "Pale Ale" is what both chalkboard and waitron said. Bright pale copper pour, with fairly light carbonation. Isolated and large-ish bubbles rather than a foamy scrim. Dry fruit and hops in the nose, pale malts and leafy bitters. Mouthfeel is a bit of a letdown, prickly at first but then a bit watery. Flavors are quite dry for the most part, and refreshing for sure. But there wasn’t a huge amount going on here.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had a pint at Jack of the Wood. I get the feeling this is aimed at the BMC crowd. Not very flavorful, pretty forgetful. Aroma is nice and with it being light you can have it refilled a few times and not get overpowered. I was just expecting more out of it.

On tap at Jack of the Wood, Asheville NC, 6 July 2006 at 5.0%. Clear golden amber colour. Quite prominent citric hops in the aroma with some resinous touches. Stronger hop presence than I was expecting. Firm bitterness in the flavour with a more peppery, earthy hop character. Fairly light mouthfeel. A good drinking pint. More American than English in style.
