COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted brew pub ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your glass!

Note: Bottled version is contract-brewed by Shipyard.

EithCubes (4638) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle, screw-top. Nose is sweet and unclean, strong sugary character with some lemon and grain. Clear golden body leaning orange with above-average carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Watery body actually pretty dry with some mild bitterness and grain, and again, dirty, but not off-putting. Some mild citrus and grass, malt is thin and weak. Still, on the whole, something I’d be happy to toss back over the course of a few hours, a single APA with straightforward character.

22 oz bottle. Cloudy orange color with a fluffy head. Looks gorgeous in the glass. This is characterized as a pale ale, but it's not hoppy or bitter enough for my taste. In fact, it's almost sweet. OK I guess for those cool summer evenings on the deck in Maine, but I'm not sure I'd order it after a cold day of lumberjacking. Anyway I'm a city boy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boto (1808) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Draught: This one pours a clear, golden color. It had a wisp of a white head on it that left a little lacing. The aroma is a bit lighter. Some malts, as well as grassy and earthy hop notes. The taste is clean, and leans towards the lighter side. Some malts, and a little earthy hops. A slightly dry finish. Pretty easy drinking.

TATE (265) - Lubec, Maine, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a bright copper color with thin white head. Bready aroma. Mellow malt flavor is quickly taken out by a citrusy hop bitterness but just a touch, not a lot of hops but well balanced. Finishes dry. There was a hit of metallic flavor which I’m sure is not supposed to be there. I like all of Gritty’s products and like this one as well. Not as highly hopped as most APA and seems more like an English pale ale.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Keg at the Portland branch. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Grainy malt nose, some leaves, orange rind. Light to ,Edith sweet flavor, mild bitter pine needles, some leaves, a bit of ripening orange. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with very faint citrus, leaves, pine. Again, a very basic beer.

dlovell2 (573) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours cloudy copper color with white head. Malty aroma with some citrus. Malty flavor with some caramel and then slight hoppy finish. Nice brew. Miss the old logo.

rondphoto (1551) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Clear medium copper amber with a thin head and no lace, The taste is caramel malt with a generous infusion of carbonation, adding hops late in the palate until fading all flavors in an oily finish. This is disappointingly heavy and bloating for such a low abv; I can drink it, but I don’t think I would choose it.
