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.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Pours cloudy copper color with white head. Malty aroma with some floral hops. Malty flavor with some caramel, some mineral chewiness, and then slight hoppy finish. Nice brew. Miss the old logo.

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.

Ed5388 (2236) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap. Pours a dark copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is toasted biscuity malts, some caramel, and hints of hops. Taste is similar to the aroma. On the malty side, but it does have a nice spiciness in there as well, and some hops in the finish.

Bulk_Carrier (2266) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 15, 2013
The appearance is a golden yellow/orange color with a semi-thick cream looking head that lasts about one minute. The beer has a light cloudiness and has a lacing that slides gently down the glass as it drinks. The smell is pretty malty with some light hops and some ever so light grains. The taste is slightly grainy with the malts coming back and brings in an ever so slight sweetness to it. The palate is medium yet balanced and smooth, and somewhat dry. Overall, this is a good beer that is very drinkable.

Excellent pub ale style. Nice and bready but not overpowing. Subtle and smooth. Great beer!

Pours a copper, toffee brown with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel malt and some specialty grains. Taste is light caramel malts and a small presence of hop. Fairly boring.
