Reddish brown color, and a maltier scent than expected. Pretty good mix of hops/malt.

Citrus hop aroma on this cloudy dark amber. Bitter, light hop flavor with a bitter aftertaste. This one started out well for me but then faded into disappointment.

Copper pour with a foamy off white head. Aroma was cereal, bread, some citrus and pine hops. Flavor was nicely hopped with some breadiness and caramel undertones.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy copper pour. A very standard apa. Light hop flavors, a bit of fruit. A bit too sharp in the finish. Mediocre.

Honey-orange in color; slighly opaque. I’m not usually a fan of Ale House beers, but this seemed more satisfying than usual. It was a good beer to drink on a hot day like today. Pretty light, certainly lighter than many pail ales I’ve had before. However, there was a pleasent amount of hop in the palate, and a decent finish. This is my favorite among the Ale House’s beers, and when I return, I will be drinking this one.

This is a classic pale ale. It is full of tart hops that bring out grapefruit flavors and some bitterness. A touch of malt.

8/11/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! Light, clear amber pour that reminds me of pumpkin liqueur. A fluffy white head sticks around on top as a ring and a skin quite well. The aroma is mostly sweet malts, earth, and soap - not anything super awesome going on. The flavor is again very prominent in sweet malts with a bitter kick, but not a lot of distinct hop flavor. Eh.

12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is mild with barley and a tiny bit of apricot. The taste is sweet&biter with caramel and lightly spicy hops vying for domination. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes short and dry with some lingering spicy hops. overall: Another meh beer.
