12oz bottle pours a bright amber orange with a medium tan head. Aroma is floral, honey, and caramel, four grain eh? Taste is slightly sweet but overall bland and no where near "complex." Forgettable.

Via Microbeer of the Month Club - Sorry friends, this doesnít work at all. Wet biscuit. Bland malts. no fly zone.

Botttle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy orange amber with little head. Aroma is roasty/bready with something that suggests hop. Med body. Flavor is slighty roasty bready with a suggestion of bitterness that might be from hop or grain. It has so much malt that it drinks like a beer with a heavier ABV. So itís finishing sweet, but not so sweet as to be sickening, and the bitter is building with time. Some might call this balanced. Iím not always good at that determination, but it looks like itís not a drain pour. Surprised about that.

You know, the Amish only go around once in life so they have to grab for all the gusto they can, even in the beer they drink. And when they drink beer they reach for a Lancaster Amish Four Grain Ale.

Bottle pours medium copper with faintly yellow foamy head with good persistence. Aroma sweet malts and fruits with some citrus hops. Sweet taste, kind of a corn-like adjunct effect but I have to say overall I like it. Finish minimal hops, not what youíd expect from a APA.. Palate slightly sticky and syrupy. Alcohol not apparent.

I didnít expect to like it but I did.

12 oz bottle. 3rd of 4 beers in my "beer of the month/season" shipment. Pours a copper color that catches the light well, with no real head to speak of. Smells of sugary gum-like aromas, maybe some vanilla, and malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with a lot of wheat thrown in too (note: I hate wheat flavors). Very light mouth feel, and a bit watered down. Swing and a miss, Iím afraid.

Bottled. Poured clear, light-medium orange with a tall, whipped off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey, bready notes, and wet grains.. quite sweet overall.. just a little citrus and fruity hop presence around.. decent balance, and no real complaints. The flavor found honey and doughy sweetness at the core with fruity notes and assorted grains around.. some vanilla around there too.. again very sweet, with little hop presence. Light-medium bodied and sweet as mentioned on the palate.. just a touch of grainy sourness.. OK and very drinkable overall.

Pours a hazy amber with a white head and malty aroma. Taste is of sweet malts, hops, grains, and fruits with a sweet, long finish. Nothing special about this brew.

Pours a rusty cooper color, with light carbonation. Aroma is grassy and malty, and quite pleasant. Taste is bitte and complex, but do not like the flavor or appreciate the four grain mixture.Taste is piney with hints of fruit ( banana) and just not there for me. Finish is medium and astringent. Quaff Score ( drinkability especially with hearty enjoyment ) 3 / 10

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 I liked this. It was a fine pale. Wasnít too carbonated and had a great flavor. It wasnít complex, but simple. If you see it, it is worth a try. Best Pale Iíve had

For an APA, a rather mild and meak brew. They should use their Hop Hog as their APA, and make a better and hoppy IPA. This APA is average, no need to go out of your way for this one.
