2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap pour into a pint glass at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse. Kind of a pale amber with a hint of golden color. Smell is grainy and malty like frat party type ales. Taste doesn’t bring anything great to the table. Grainy/cerealy/malty and nothing in there to offset it. Thin mouthfeel. Feels like it’s really old and stale but likely it’s actually fresh from the brewery. You would hope the namesake pale ale of the city would taste better than this. Ouch.

Kinda old musty malt smell, improves with more smell...taste is very similar! Slightly sweet malt beer with no hops...just sugar water...no depth...

Mar. 1, 2015; 12 oz. bottle. Seems more Bitter than Pale Ale. Sadly, no head turns up, and the flavor reminds one of terribly overripe fruit & vegetables. Not a drain-pour, by any means, but nothing one would have a reason to seek out.

12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. Golden amber with a thin white head; aroma of grassy hops; slightly sour grain body; with a sweet malty finish. Pleasant enought, but not what I recognise as an English Ale.

On draft at Dinosaur BBQ 1/15/15. My go to beer at Dino when none of the seasonals pique my interest. A perfect mixture of hop and malt for me with a clear amber color. Went well with smoked pulled pork, mac ’n’ cheese , catfish appetizer and Elvis music. May have provoked foolish dancing to ensue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Appearance is light golden honey color with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is huge honey, caramel, malt sweetness. Very little hope character here. Flavor is similar to aroma. Very sweet flavor, malt forward with honey, and caramel. Minimal hops. There’s light carbonation but it works nicely for this beer. As far as pale ales go, this one’s clearly an English style given how malty it is.
