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.

Cask conditioned (Gravity) at the Great British Beer Festival, Kensington Olympia, London. (Thursday Session). Eggs in the aroma. Average pale with not much going for it.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2004
Clear straw colored. Diminishing white cover. Very mild aroma of floral hops and a bit too grainy malt. Lemony and flowery dry palate. Simple. Refreshing without seeking to be more. Light to medium body, high carbonation. A pale ale with no pretention.

The Portland Head Light is my favorite beer at Gritty McDuffs. Probably one of the best light beers i’ve had out of a Maine brewer also. Has a nice fresh clean dry taste with a blondeish color and a great aftertaste.

The finish is the best part of this beer. The carbonation helps it down, and the start promises more than the beer delivers

DYCSoccer17 (3459) - 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 (1548) - 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 (1246) - 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 (13270) - 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 (3459) - 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.
