COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pale Ale boasts a fragrant aroma and assertive, crisp bitterness. This ale has a deep golden color and slightly sweet malt finish, which nicely balances its hop bitterness.

Dark golden color, quickly-fading head. Mild carbonation. Smooth flavor, fairly hoppy, but a somewhat unpleasant, sour finish.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Nice orange tint to the golden colour, sour fruity smell. Good pale ale taste with some distinctive fruity notes. Some hops go towards the aftertaste, but an all-arond decent beer!

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 This pale has been upgraded since my last rating. I heard that they were hopping this brew up, and it delivers. Nicely hopped and well balanced. A good effort and one worth seeking out in and around the area. This is an average beer at best. Little in the way of maltiness and a sharpness without good hop flavor. The nut brown and flower power are much better.

Very nice hoppy American pale. Golden pour is nice to look at. Good companion to spicy foods. Malt was there, but in the background as a pale ale should be.

Nice orange color; Frothy white head. Nice crispness on the tongue, with pleasent citrus notes. Hops created a slight burn on the tongue.

bottled - all the pieces are there but didn’t gel quite right for me. nice head and color but aroma and flavor have a hop bitterness without the spice and floral chracteristics.

aroma of canned peaches. Sweet citrus taste with a mild hop finish, good, but Ive had much better.

First time I tried it, there was an instantanious metallic flavor that I hated. That was two years ago. I was in Ithaca and a bar tender at the Chapter house ( If you are ever in Ithaca stop there, it’s a great bar. 40 beers on tap and all dank!) told me that they had completely changed there equipment. So I tried it again and wasn’t impressed but it certainly had lost the metallic taste. Slightly hoppy, slightly malty,... slightly good.
