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.

355ml bottle. Nice copper colour, good tan head. Bready and floral aroma. Taste is bready, caramel, copper, mineral water. Body is a little too thin and watery. Overall, decent, standard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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!

Draft ... Nice copper color. Malty taste, good interpretation of an English ale. Subtle hop finish.

Iím staring to find all the beers by thins company a bit thin and just falling short of hitting that next tier of good beers. This one is thin, but not bad. Caramel malty and floral taste, You detect some fruit, but all their beers have just hints of these ingredients. I say be bold!

Bottle from Liz. Pours light golden amber with a slight white head. Light citrus and caramel aromas. Med body. Thickish feel, so maybe towards full. Thereís some caramel, and some citrus, but not all that much, and itís really only bitter enough to avoid being sweet. It doesnít have that roasty APA malt, and itís not bitter in my book. Kind of like some of those other beers from Shipyard - KBC and Seadog. Like they didnít want to use a lot of ingredients to make a statement.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Reviewed from notes (2008). A: Clear golden hue... fluffy white head... no lacing... S: Butter... bread... hints of caramel... T: A pleasant combination of a bready base with caramel highlights and a soft hop finish... M: Smooth and oily but the flavors are crisp...
