Above average for this poor excuse for a brewpub. Strongly malty nose, good bit of stinging hops, nice body, hints of honey? Smooth, pretty good overall, hops don't last through the middle but make a short reappearance on the finish.

Ummm...I'm guessing this is a Maibock, made with ale yeast? Way too estery for a lager, but with a distinct lager flavor to it. Maybe it's the hops. Clear golden blond, with a small ring of head. Very sweet aroma, with a lagery smell, and a hint of esters. Carbonation is mild, with a very sweet malty finish. Hops come through nice and sharp in the aftertaste. Very sweet, with only very light bitterness.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Light hops aroma with a bit of sourness/vinegar acidity. Light golden clear with almost no head. Medium-high carb and watery body. Had a light sweetness and dry bitterness with dry finish and mellow bitter after (dry hopped).

On the handpump at their Wayne PA location, what an awesome pale ale, had a hazy & a bit cloudy light copper color, huge full & heavy off-white head, very smooth, very drinkable, sat there for a good hour and a half basically drinking just this one beer, had a huge floral & hoppy nose, full in body, bitter & hoppy flavors, bitter & dry finish, good malty profile thrown in there for excellent balance, very excellent pale ale
