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.

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...

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 wonít blow many people away, but itís 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.
