A darker copper color, with a small but nicely lacing head... Has a bread smell; oats, grains etc. Has a sweet hop presence as well.

Pours copper color with white head. Caramel malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with some bread flavors. Some honey notes and a citrus finish. Fairly smooth. Really like.

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

Lightrider (272) - 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.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
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 (428) - 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 (4039) - 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)

Chuckaduck (610) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2012
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.

Leafs93 (1611) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pours dark copper with a thin tan head. Aroma is faint caramel and bread. Taste is sweet with barely a trace of bitters. Very thin bodied. Much more malty they other APA’s I’ve had. Not terrible but not the APA I was expecting.
