The beer looks decent with a nice medium bodied golden straw/brownish hue to it. The beer has a mild foam ring and some lacing on the glass. The beer smells average with a mildly citrus nose up front that gives away to a mild bready/earthy scent. The beer tastes average with an average hoppy/sweetness (almost caramel) flavor and mild maltiness to it. The mouthfeel is average with a mild bitterness and the beer had average carbonation. Overall, an average EPA with some boring flavor combiations that just donít pop.

Included as part of a sampler at the restaurant. I found most of the beers here to be average to below average. Nothing very memorable from what we were able to taste during our visit.

On tap at the brewpub Pours a deep amber color with a decent head and retention. Finally some hops. Smells of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of an earthy undercurrent. Taste is citrus, bread, earth. Well balanced pale ale with a decent taste. Thinnish body with a bitter resinous mouthfeel and a watery mouthfeel. Decent pale

LilBeerDoctor (3736) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of floral hops, caramel malt. Flavor of odd tasting malt with a harsh and abrasive bitterness. Iím not sure what went wrong here (it didnít taste infected so Iím suspecting possibly a dirty tap line?), because this is just awful. 6/4/4/1/9 [2.4/5]

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2011
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pored a clear gold with an amber hue and an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had notes of pine and rich bread with a bit of backing grapefruit. Flavor began with pine and was joined by a nice grapefruit note and was backed by rich bread throughout. A real nice beer.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Pours coper with a tan head. Smells of fuggles hops, some earthy undertones, restrained malt. Tastes peppery with a hint of bitterness balancing the subtlety of the malt profile. Easy drinking and sessionable.

Sampler at restaurant. Fuggles, East Kent Goldings. Aroma is spicy hops and slight fruit. Great hoppy flavor, very drinkable and hardly bitter. Body was slightly thin. My favorite of all the beers in the sampler.
