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.

nothing too special about this one. tastes of malty caramel, light molasses and maybe some subdued hazelnut. body and mouthfeel are quite light for the style. finishes with a good balance of malt and hops.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass. The color is a clear orange/gold with a finger of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass. The smell is a little bit fruity with some pale malt aroma running through out. There is the smallest bitterness there, giving a small preview of things to come. The taste is malty at 1st. There is a light pale malt taste mixed with some fruit flavor that leads into a small orange flavor with a dry earthy bitterness. The feel of this beer is medium bodied and goes down pretty easy. A beer that is rather light in alcohol is very drinkable as well.

listed as "pub pale" so hopefully this is the correct entry, tap at Portland location - This tap brew has an aroma of caramel malt and citrus hops. The flavor is similar and well balanced with a medium body. It won’t blow many people away, but it’s fairly good.

Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that leaves some lace. Aroma of pale malts, grassy hops, wheat, cereal, and orange citrus. Flavor is pretty much the same but the hops and citrus pop more. Thankfully, or else this would be another dull Vacationland. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel.

Bottle at the lake in nh. Aroma is a mix of fruit, caramel malt, light hops. Thin, watery body. Semi-sweet malty taste with no trace of hops. This style rarely does it for me and this was no exception.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours clear, dark golden with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of light caramel malts and some floral, slightly citrusy hops. Flavor pretty bland. A decent beer, but nothing special.

Tap at brewery. Orange, tangerine doughy wheat and a touch of lemon. Fruity.

22 oz bottle. Used a pint glass. Light hazy orange color. Small white head with no lace. Nose of very light hops and bread like malt. Taste is much the same and just as weak. Thin mouhfeel, watery. Below average, but not terrible.

cheap (3971) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Darker and more hazy than pale lager. Smell is a little sweet &alarming like those quite rude high alky baltic lagers. First taste is malty and above medium personality impact. Barely any CO2. Dull like many higher hopped APA. Not real impressed but this style rarely impresses me. Dull lingering finish.

Tap at the brewery. Comes to life in the mouth. Aroma has caramel; taste is sweet, with bitterness taking over. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Orange, with a frothy head.
