micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
as an amber color about itself, with good carb’s and an avg. head that fades quickly to a foamy ring about the glass. A spicy malt aroma with an earthy hop bouquet. A spicy malt taste similar to Beligem brews. Hop flavor is very understated with a slight earthy or woodiness taste. The use of four grains gives a complex flavor. spicy from the rye and smooth from oats. Medium body with a bitter finish and dry after taste. I would like to taste more hop flavor to balance out the maltiness. I could drink a few of these but would change out after about two.

Transferred from BA reviewed on 2-1-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass. Appearance - Pours a rusty–copper color with a off white head; the color not quite so” pale” as the categorization implies. The head fades leaving very little lacing. Smell –Rye maltiness is the main aroma detected. This maltines however is mixed with a fair degree of sweeter aromas as well; mainly some caramel and toffee as well as some wheat and an ever so light toasted nut, which seems almost none existent in the beginning, but shows up at the end. Taste – Sweet caramel and rye malt are the backbone of the brew and seem ever present. A very light hop spiciness, mostly earthy in , is present at the start, but seem to fade quite fast, giving way to an even greater level of sweetness, with the caramel flavor mixing with some lighter fruit flavors,;a bit of banana, and some other sweeter flavors of vanilla. The taste transition is light and very smooth. Quite nice!! Mouthfeel – The rye flavor seems to blanket the tongue with a nice creaminess; a much creamier tongue feel then would have been expected. The carbonation level seems to be right on par, making it a very easy drinking and enjoyable brew. Overall – This is quite nice and very flavorful brew. The rye and sweet flavors and aroma are all quite smooth and enjoyable.

This beer is being discontinued in lieu of the Lancaster Pale Ale, which is a reformulation.

Lightrider (307) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle into a goblet. Pour IA a haze brown with a nice brown head. Aroma is a sweet malt. Taste is of fruit and malt, it is very different from other pale ale. Finish is a fruit wash. This is a very good ale.

Bottle. Very bizarre odor that really gave an unappetizing feel to the beer as a whole.

I like this beer overall, kinda like a meal in a glass. Tones of citrus, flavorful yeast, and mild hops. Poured well, nice light amber color. The thing that stood out the most with this one was the taste of baked bread behind other complimenting flavors

ellolovey (453) - Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2012
12 oz. pours a golden amber with a light ivory head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of bread malts and honey. Taste loads of honey and bread malts. Very sweet. Hints of lemon zest and oak. Very light and easy to drink

unclemattie (4170) - Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12oz bottle. Orange-amber pour, white creamy foam. Sweet aroma. Caramel malt, fructose, sugar, malt powder, bread, and dried leaves. Sweet grain character. Flavors of sweetened cereal, mostly grains, bready. Oily, sticky texture. Finishes with a grain flavor and some bitter grass flavors. Very unique, on its own level. Not too balanced, but quality exists. (3519)

Pours a light rusty color with a thin off-tan head. Aroma is caramel, sugar, malt, some fruit, pine. Taste is oily, plain. Mild; some grass, a little sweet and bready. Very plain. Very nice mouthfeel though. I so wish this was a more flavorful beer.
