medium golden color, with a thin off-white foamy head. aroma is mostly grainy (corn) with a slight nutty quality to it with a little malt presence. flavor is slightly sweet initially, but fades into a moderately dry finish also with grainy and earthy flavors.

GABF 2002: Pale orange, good head. Fresh caramel aroma. Light malt flavor with a very strong bitter finish. Unbalanced.

well You have to support the Old home team and since our little league team is will be playing Saturday in the American Championship and then possibly in the Little League World I had to try some local flavor. You can taste the carmel, the English Pale Ale, and the Irish influence, its refreshing on this HOT Kentucky day, I’ll admit I didn’t expect much from this one, and it suprised me. not bad , not suberb either just average.

Dense rocky head. Deep amber hue showing a zesty carbonation through lines of tiny bubbles. A really nice appearance. The aroma is sweetly malty with a slight bit of hop. The flavor is of fruity, delicate malt lightly backed by hops. Light to medium in body. Not astonishingly different from a standard pale ale, but very unique in its own way which keeps me going back for more. A very drinkable beer.

This beer tasted like someone took the sweat off a horses ass and bottled it. I would rather have a Bud Light than another one of these. By far one of the worst beers I have ever had.

Slight malty aroma, very soft hops in the flavor and aroma. Nice orange color. I’m sure this would do better fresh out of a cooler from the bottle, than at cellar temp in a tulip glass.

a friend gave me a bottle to rate, so i gotta talk it up even if it tastes like it was brewed in a clogged rain gutter (hi dan!). fortunately, i don’t have to lie: golden like a haystack in the evening sun and foaming like a race horse, this is an attractive libation. the aroma is modest: a little honey on a slice of roman meal bread. fairly sweet, and creamy. no danger of any ’harsh bitter aftertaste’, the hops were evidently used very sparingly. almost tastes like the beer itself ran through that limestone underlying the bluegrass region. still, a terrific, sweetish ballpark beer.

I am going to try this again, and re-rate it. I want to see if I had a bad bottle. This had a weird taste, it had some sort of flavor but it wasn’t good. It’s basically a lightish beer which I didn’t finish.
