tasted at Blacksburg Brew Do - well balanced on the palate with hops and malt present, interesting addition of cascade hops to what would otherwise taste like a traditional english IPA

Bland! Ok malty aroma. Average light copper pour w/ a thin white head that leaves little lacing. The taste is all malt but way too clean. There isn’t really much flavor at all. Decent mouthfeel but I’m not really feeling this one at all!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-3-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden-orange color with a tiny white head. The head fades fast to give only a light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is quite light and consists of a biscuit smell with a light citrus and caramel smell mixed within.
Taste – The taste begins bready and malty. It is soon meet with flavors of earthy hops as well as a lighter light fruit flavor. Flavors of caramel come to the tongue. More toward the end, some hop flavors come to the tongue. These flavors are largely of a citrus and earthy nature, which in the end, leave a slightly hoppy, yet more crisp and bready, flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer and the carbonation level were both quite average. Nothing special, but fine for the style.
Overall – Decent pale ale that is rather easy to drink, but nothing to go out of your way for.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber on the darkish side with a thick and fairly persistent pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but the malty and subtle fruity notes promise an at least palatable beer. Flavor is mainly malty, while subtle fruity and woody hop tones take their turn on the palate. Texture is thin but fairly fizzy. Get your monkey powdered.

Cask at Rattle n Hum. Pours golden orange with a white head. Moderate floral hops, pale malts base, and hints of sweetness. Balanced and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale orange color; light and very see-through.
The aroma is very "English": sugary malts, very pronounced yeast presence in the nose. The hops are of the flower/pollen variety.
Flavor is yeast-forward: bready, dry malts. Hops are strictly Euro/bittering stuff. Not a ton of character in the hops, but adherent to the British pale traditions.
Chewy texture. Miles away from an American pale. It’s not chock full of flavor but it is not devoid of flavor either. A nice English session pale considering it’s filler in a 12er.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
English style means full bodied and earthy with aggressive pine hops instead of bright west coast citrus. Well done beverage.

transparent tea, thin white ring, decent lacing. dusty, lightly skunky grain nose. Dirty, bubble gum sugary front palate, heavy toast across flat mid before slick paper finish, muted and watery with sugar and spent grain lasting briefly.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Seems like a mildly hoppy copper ale. Hoppier than the average English pale ale, but with the same mild, easily quaffable character.

Drank from bottle. Smells of bread, nuts, and hops. Taste is a little dry, not as dry as I was expecting, but I was also not expecting an English style pale ale when I bought it. It is a solid beer.
