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.

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.

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 (4390) - Beaver Valley, 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.

A: snifter. Nice copper color, with a good white head on top that retains about an 1/8th of an inch. Practically no lacing. S: nice malty aroma. Solid crystal malts, with some fruity aromas. Not a big hop aroma for a pale ale. T: has that Northeastern beer taste. Good solid malt backbone, with a great balance of bitter hop flavors. Almost reminds me of a marzen. I am getting some hints of banana. Taste kind of like some Shipyard products. M: good carbonation level. Medium body. A rather interesting palate. D: definitely a session beer in my opinion. Decent for the style but nothing crazy with this one.

Bottle. Poured a burnt orange that slowly became lighter copper, and had a very good white head. Aromas of mild floral hops. Taste is crisp and dry malts with floral notes and a very slight hint of malt to keep the bitterness low. A simple brew that does it very well.

MiP (13995) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Mild fruity aroma. Hazy light amber colour. The flavour is slightly grainy with a mild, refreshing grassy hop note.

a brew with a chalky lye like flavor that of course presents itself toard the back of the palate. watery, sweetish and low in carbonation with some fruit that does not balance this brew out but, helps a little bit with the flavor. that to me is not enough.

2007: Hazy light orange. Almost no head. Has a nice thick "real ale" look to it. Looks very English. Very nice normal, typical ale smell. The malt dominated with a hint of gentle flowery hops. Very subtle, but very pleasant. A bit toasted. Terrific dry ale with a dry biscuty malt. Very light wheat aftertaste with an estery finish. Really really good. Unique hint of wheat. Even the yeast is excellent. Dry and biscuity, medium thickness. It’s a fine session ale. Feels great. This is really an outstanding English style pub ale. Easy to drink but full of flavor. I am surprised a lot of other Advocates are dogging this one, because I was really impressed with it, even out of a bottle.
