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.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 14, 2004
Pours a transparent blonde/orange color with a small off-white head that sorta chills. I'm getting some malts and a small whiff of Cascade in the nose. Start is slightly hoppy and citrus/pine like. Finish is bland and somewhat watery. Doesnt give me incentive to go back for more. Very forgettable.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Pale gold appearance with an initially large, rocky head that produced decent lacing. Flowery, slightly spicy aroma. Well-carbonated, dry bitter taste. Fruity, nicely hopped finish.

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2004
I think it's been said enough already. There's nothing really wrong with this beer, it's just boring and doesn't stand out against the other APAs I've had.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Bright, light amber colour. Toasty, fruity hops and Ringwood esters. Crisp, toasty body. Blackberry esters noted. The finish is quick, slightly fruity and somewhat refreshing. One of those deja vu beers.

Kinz (3277) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Orange color, clear, fast fading head. Green, vegetal aroma. Taste is again vegetal, malt is thinnish, and it finishes with a weird cooked flavor. Has a bite on the palate. This is a boring pale ale, marred by what I consider an inferior hop flavor.

ericnixon (738) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Clear golden color with a light flowery aroma. My first impression was "hey, this is pretty darn good," then after a few more sips i was like "what am i talking about, this is kinda 'eh'-ey." fairly average with a bittery lingerlingly dry aftertaste.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2004 Clear orange with a thin bubbled head. Light and weak tasting. Sharp yeast aroma, sharp mouth feel. The Ringwood yeast makes this even worse. I need another beer to wash the flavor out of my mouth.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2003
The subtle combination of hops must have been too subtle for me to detect. Very plain-jane, yet session-able. Medium in all other aspects: color, body (maybe a little too light), head. Their house yeast is detectable in all their beers as a sourness. Maybe they need a good line cleaning.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Bottle at GIBFProvidence RI: Pale golden hue. Light malt aroma. Clean white head. Very light footed on palate, but malts were very nicely balanced by crisp gentle hops in the finish. Nicely done.
