COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of an English bitter, you're hit with a wonderful malt flavor and distinct hop character from a generous amount of Kent Goldings.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Copper. Nose slight and clean, a bit of caramel malts. Sweet at first, malts are bready and toasty at end. British hops at the end. Is a mite sweet. Nice creaminess.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Amber in color with an off white head. Hoppy/malt aroma. Slightly bitter finish. Watery body that detracted from the overall experience.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2004
Had @ the Newark DE. pub. Medium sized offwhite head, decent retention and lace. Clear amber/copper colored brew, nice appearence. Grainy nose, balanced well with the hops, both being fairly subdued. Medium body, good carbonation. Light toasty malt flavors with an earthy/fruity hop flavor. Finish is dry, earthy. A fair pale ale.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2004
A solid English pale, with slightly more bitterness going down than an American IPA. Generously hopped. An above average representation of the style. Great with fish.

Drinkingdan (371) - East Norriton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Nice copper, amber color. Nice hops and malt. An alright English Pale Ale.

r464 (1883) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2004
A copper/amber color. Flavored like a stronger english bitter. I like this one. Not disappointing in one of my favorite styles.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Poured brownish golden color with a white head and nice lacing. Grainy hop aroma, reminded me of the signature weyerbacher aroma. A distinction I can not state exactly, but it is what most Weyerbacher beers smell like. Nice light hoppy taste. Reminded me more of a bitter, and did not include the caramel malt that I usually find in an EPA.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Pours a nice golden brown, witha thin white head. Aroma is of citrus fruits and grain. Slightly sweet. Thin and watery mouthfeel. An ok beer. Probably one of Iron Hill's best sellers.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2004
On tap at brewery: golden brown color, little layer of a head, flat carbonation. Light rye color and a kind of cereal taste. Not my taste.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - JAN 2, 2004
Pleasant grainy nose, pale amber color with a frothy sticky head. Woody malt - almost peaty. Substaintial hopping with a bitter dry end. Decent balance. Nice. Goes with their fare.
