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.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2004
A pretty decent, if uninspiring pale ale. Restrained citric hop character, with a bit of fruit and malt. Clean, dry finish. Cask, GBBF 2004.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Copper color. This is a balanced, towards the British end of the style, with pleasanty earthy malts and a mild fruitiness, finishing somewhat dry. Good accompaniment with your average American meal.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2004
I realize that they use american hops in this but I honestly think this should be considered an english pale ale or an english bitter due to its fruity aromas and flavors. Some of the esters noticed in the aroma reminded me of English style yeasts. The palate is excellent. Very smooth and exceptionally drinkable especially on tap. Very under-rated.

SilkTork (5414) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2004
Gravity GBBF. Gentle and comfortable APA. Some citric flavours and some balsamic vinegar and sweet malt. Nice. Mushy nettle aroma. These Gritty McDuffs seem to be fairly average beers - hardly seems worth the effort of bringing them all the way over from the States when there are many better beers to choose from.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2004
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 (6161) - 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.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 2, 2004
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.

aceboxer (15) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2004
The finish is the best part of this beer. The carbonation helps it down, and the start promises more than the beer delivers

DYCSoccer17 (3499) - 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 (1570) - 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.
